Updating other people's plugins?

Postby pepak » Sun 09 Mar, 2014 18:01

In my attempt to upgrade to FAR3 I rewrote several plugins from FAR1/FAR2 - I converted them to Delphi, added FAR2/FAR3 compatibility, and if I felt like I needed something new, I added it. Now, what would be the best way to publish those plugins? Reuse their announcement thread, if there is one, or create a new one? Or post them here and let a moderator create an announcement thread?

(Note that I need to test-drive those plugins for a while before I feel ready to release them, but I would like to be prepared when that day comes.)

Feel free to create your own threads if you need.
Then we will make links in old threads to help people find your versions.

You can upload all them to plugring, thus users will be able to update them automatically (via UpdateEx).

I am afraid that is a lot of hoops to go through. I am not sure I am ready to satisfy all the requirements; I guess it will be better to keep the plugins in just the English part of the forum, at least for now.

I hope the new announcements are satisfactory. I couldn't find how to add the links from PlugRinG, so if you can fix that, I would appreciate it. But otherwise I think I followed all the requirements for an announcement post.

You can see all your links here: http://plugring.farmanager.com/author.php?aid=352&l=en

And Discussions topic's titles need to be fixed too.

Done. Except that as soon as I edited the posts, BBcode tags started to display as plaintext, even though Preview shows it correctly formatted. I have no idea how to fix it.
