dear westhost employee reading this,

is there any chance that any time in the near future ( 3 months?) that we might be so lucky as to have any of the following available to autoinstall through site manager:

a shopping cart other than miva
a photo gallery
mambo or some other cms
mailing list/newsletter something or other

I know it may be nice to have them available with just a click. But they are all real easy to install ourselves as WH gives us the power of being able to login to the server and set things up ourselves. If you need help there are lots of people on the forum who can help you out with setting up these things.

yeah, i know installation isnt that hard if there's decent install directions, but my thinking is, because i am no php or database wiz, if something goes wrong and its an app in the site manager, i would think i'd maybe have a chance at getting some support from westhost instead of having to figure it out myself. sometimes you just wanna run a store - you dont wanna have to learn how to lay the brick and install the plumbing. (yeah, i know there is miva)


as for the newsletter/mailing list option, could you please be so kind as to tell me what it is called or where in site manager it is because i spent quite some time digging around there thinking there must be something of that nature but i just cant find it.

thanks

Mojo and Dada are the same thing.

The App is located under Communication in your Site Apps.

Girl.Geek.Nascent and others,

WestHost has a fairly extensive list of requests for site applications that we've gathered from these forums. In many cases it is evident which appliactions are most wanted by our clients. Thus the release of newer versions of PHP and MySQL.

Regarding the four applications mentioned in this thread:
- There is a photo album ultility built in to the Site Builder (not yet launched)

- As mentioned MojoMail/DadaMail is a mailing list app. The application is the same - the developers of MojoMail renamed it to DadaMail, and added a few things (like password encryption improvements). If you haven't already, I might recommed upgrading - all of your mailing lists from MojoMail will remain intact.

- As far as the other two go, both (a second e-commerce solution, and a content management piece) are on our list. However, there are no immediate plans for either.

I hope this information has served as some benefit to you!

I would be very careful in using Dada Mail as a discussion list- the official documentation at the Dada Mail site ( http://mojo.skazat.com/support/documentation/dada_send.pl.html ) says:

Please note that this extension has seen little work put into it and has some known issues... It is advised that you not use this extension in any important task.

In my opinion, this is discussion list support is one of the weakest areas of the WH applications currently offered.
