Modulesgarden has released a directadmin thingy, and a few others, as has a few other developers.

Currently, to find these, it takes a bit of hunting around on the site here, and then maybe even visiting their respective sites.

if we had an http://Apps.HostBillForums.com or http://HostBillForums.com/apps then we could just list the 3rd party modules themselves, with brief descriptions and links to the developers sites for download and/or purchase.

This will make it easy for anyone to peruse the available modules for HostBill that aren't kbkp in origin and it would be, IMNSHO, of great benefit to all HostBill owners.

nuff said :)

Definitely considering this.

Originally these boards were where users could list their projects,
- http://www.hostbillforums.com/index.php/board,6.0.html

But I suppose a hosted project page would be more useful.

These forums are hosted by me with no intentions to ever monetize them. These forums are here solely for the benfit of the HostBill community.

Well that board is where they feature, announce, and can showcase their stuff, but my suggestion is a page for us to manage, where we watch those boards, and find other companies too, and actually list the items w/some tidbits - more of a website itself.

kbkp showcases their stuff in a similar way, as does other developers, and that's fine for those developers to do that on their own sites, but finding everything known out there and having it in a central location with some nice screenshots and perhaps some user reviews that are unbiased would be great.

The board you linked to is still a good place for those developers to converse with the users here and introduce their products - sure makes it easier to find them and be aware that they have new products to post on http://Apps.HostBillforums.com ;)

Not to say it should look like this, but here's an example: http://extensions.joomla.org/
