The future of our products for WoltLab Suite Core 3

Warning: This page is a part of an archive now and will be removed in the future.

WoltLab Suite Core 3 is available for several months now and I think it’s time to let you know the future of our products. We took a look at the Suite during the development and even after that to decide which product needs an update and which one do also receive it. Keeping in mind that we created the products during nearly four years it should be clear that we cannot update all of them immediately – especially because we’re trying to create new products, too.

So unfortunately, I can’t give you any date when product X or product Y has been updated so that it can be used with WoltLab Suite Core 3. However, I can say which products receive an update.


Already up-to-date
There are two plugins, which already can be used with WoltLab Suite Core 3.
  • Mobile Style Changer

The following products will receive an update:

  • Crystal Temptation (actively in development)
  • Switch
  • Hypidiomorphic (actively in development)
  • The Depth of Blue
  • Accent
  • Whisperer
  • ExpressionSmoother
The “actively in development” means that we’re already working on the update for WoltLab Suite Core 3 for this plugins at the moment. So you will definitely hear more news about it soon!


Discontinued products
The following products won’t be available for WoltLab Suite Core 3.

Slider Box
In Burning Board 3 the “SlideLogin” was very popular because it was relatively new. Nowadays such a feature isn’t used very often anymore because it’s not user friendly and thus creates a bad user experience. That’s the reason why we discontinue the development for the Slider Box.

V-Collection Iconset
There are multiple reasons why the V-Collection Iconset won’t get an update for WoltLab Suite Core. The most important one is that it’s not possible for me to replace every available icon due to a missing alternative in the V-Collection itself. Additionally, and I don’t know why this could happen, I lost some icons on my hard drive and thus we can’t deliver a product we’re proud of.

Designs
There are many designs we created the past years. Good design criteria change over the time and thus we don’t update the following designs:
  • Honesty
  • Silver Star
  • Skyscraper
  • Suave
  • Passionate
  • Emphasis
  • Economic Experience
  • Common’s Dream
  • Notorious Business
  • Smart’n’Grey
  • Clearance
  • Enthusiasm
  • Mobile Design


On hold
All our free products are currently on hold. It’s not yet decided whether we update them for WoltLab Suite Core 3 or not. First of all our paid products have priority 1.


This was the update for you so that you can plan an update of your community if you want to.
