Yes it is indeed an option and nice to have but i would vote for opening the official store for 3rd party module developers.

Please consider this @ryan

  • It would motivate more professionals to develop amazing modules for ProcessWire.
  • For newcomers it would be easier to actually find the plugins they need.
  • I usually prefer paid modules because I feel more safe when it comes to support / updates. (But currently I'm forced to use some weird unofficial selfmade stores which is not supporting the feeling of safety and trust that I'm looking for as a customer)
  • Support requests for these modules could go into their dedicated VIP Support Forums just like with Ryan's Pro Modules. (The whole community could benefit from already answered questions easily ...)

I could keep going on but I'm sure it is not even necessary. Everyone can make up their own mind on this topic for sure.

Just one more thing I want to add:

I much prefer to support Ryan with a referral fee for each sold item instead of anyone else.

While I agree that a one and only "official store" would be great and help ProcessWire to prosper, I suggest that developers willing to sell such modules should unite :)

Consider that Ryan is a human too, with only 24 hours a day to use up ;) meaning: implementing, maintaining and running the store requires extra effort and time which might be a mayor constrain here, hence my suggestion of doing it as a teamwork and sharing the benefits as well.

Currently we have: https://processwireshop.pw/ and https://processwire.com/talk/store/

Although it would be welcome to see the two "merged", I guess it is not as easy as it sounds.

Of course you are right @szabesz. I can understand why we don't have it yet. I just wanted Ryan to really consider it and to know that there are people that would be happy to support him with a referral fee or something.

That's the point I'm not quite sure about. Have a look at https://invisioncommunity.com/features/commerce#elCommerce_marketplaceContainer
(This is a feature of the forum software processwire.com/talk/ is using)

The board works great so I guess the feature might do what it's supposed to do out of the box quite well?

(from) $30/month? Maybe it is worth it, hard to tell.

Well the pricing depends on the setup (cloud / self-hosted) and the number of users. It could be the case that the feature is already included in the current plan. (cloud) If not we're looking at a one time payment of 100$ + 70$ / year. (Self hosted)

Maybe it's not worth it right now but I'm pretty sure it would be in the future, when more premium modules arrive. (The fact that there aren't too many available right now is another sign that we need a strong, open and official marketplace thought)

And who knows: Maybe Ryan even has a special sponsorship deal or something like that with them and it would be for free ... :-)

Can we not simply use the /talk/store and have a submission process? the processwireshop.pw looks to different from the PW site and might put people off and look not "official" (which was the case when i went there to buy something then didnt).

Hi, does @ryan or anyone else have anymore progress or opinion on this, as i think it is a somewhat polarising subject.

I believe having lots of different stores would be bad for processwire (as im not very keen on using the https://processwireshop.pw/  store). It would be preferable to have a one stop shop for all modules including premium IMO.

      I was previously using individual fields to capture and output multiple cards onto my web page but after recently learning about repeaters would prefer to use this field type, as it will be a lot more user friendly for end users to create new cards. I tried to modify my code to grab the fields from the new Repeater field(s) but am getting this error message on the page:
      Here is the code I'm currently trying to use for the cards:
      <?php // https://processwire.com/api/arrays/ // check if the array of images has items foreach($page->tall_card as $card) { $count = 0; $count++; $options = array( 'quality' => 70 ); $image = $card->image; $img = $card->image->size(550, 400, $options); $cardHeading = $card->title; $cardBody = $card->plain_paragraph; $raised = $card->raised_amount; $goal = $card->goal_amount; $link = $card->link; if ($raised == 0 ) : $percent = 0; else: $percent = $raised_amount / $goal_amount * 100; endif; if ($percent <= 5) : $percent = 0; endif; ?> <span id="card<?php echo $count?>" class="card"> <img class="cardThumb" src="<?php echo $img->url; ?>" alt="<?php echo $image->description; ?> Thumbnail" /> <div class="cardBody"> <div class="cardText"> <h2><?php echo $cardHeading; ?></h2> <?php echo $cardBody; ?> </div> <div class="progressBarSection"> <progress class="progressBar" id="progressbar<?php echo $count; ?>" value="<?php echo $percent; ?>" max="100"></progress> <span class="raisedAmount"> $<?php echo $raised; ?> usd </span> <span class="goalAmount"> $<?php echo $goal; ?> usd </span> </div> <div class="primaryBtn"> <a href="https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id= <?php echo $link; ?> &source=url"> <button> <i class="fas fa-donate"></i> Donate </button> </a> </div> </div> </span> <?php } ?> Thanks in advance for any help!

      Hi there,
      I'm probably missing something simple, but I'm just setting up my first site so I guess that's bound to happen.
      I've installed the LoginRegistration module and at first I was thinking that the confirmation emails weren't being sent. However I now see that new user confirmation emails are taking 20+ minutes to arrive. Is there a way to speed this up?
      Also the email is coming from processwire@mydomain - I couldn't found a place to change this.
      Any advice or help would be great!

      Hi friends,
      just 7 months ago, I was "just" a designer and a rather semi-developer, still struggling with WordPress sites and more often than not delegating that work to pros. ProcessWire really helped me realising that it's not that hard after all (well it's still hard but it's doable) and you learn a lot just by doing it which has to be true for all developers anyway. So I started coding myself, I might also have to thank the 2020 pandemic to help me focus a bit more than usual, I created a bunch of websites using PW already – one of which I can't wait to put on showcases but it's still not live yet. That is one big personal milestone for me. The next milestone would be to give something back, and so I'd like to take on contributing some code I wrote, namely a event calendar for anyone to use. It's my first attempt doing this so please don't eat me alive. It's not a PW module yet (that's the plan however) just a git but I'm positive it will be useful once it works – well it works but it still needs more work – because if I had found a module that came close I wouldn't have started coding it myself :D
      With that, I will appreciate all input, be it how to improve the .js (probably especially), or the templates, or guidance how to proceed turning this into a PW-module, and of course, in that last process, no pun intended, suggestions to make it more versatile for different needs.
      git: github.com/bbblgmsp/ProcessEventCalendar
      demo: http://foobar.roofaccess.org/events/
      Thank you!

      Hi there,
      I am new to PW but already very convinced. I need to build a dropdown button to browse in a collection of authors by country and language. The dropdown should be editable in the BACK and displayed on the same as the authors collection. I tried my luck with "PageField Creator" but I don't know how to display the dropdown, I simply used: 
      "$content .=$page->Land;" (the name of the select field)
      but nothing is displayed...
      I see there is a 2nd module out there to achieve this : "Select Options Fieldtype". I am not sure what is the difference, anyone has a tip?
      And a clear tutorial with the necessary steps to build this? I am a bit confused which should be the parent template or page, if it should have a file or not...
      Thanks a lot in advance!
