Extend Site Documentation - Downloaders

Main Page

As a user you’re simply looking to download something: a plugin, a theme, an icon set, perhaps a language pack or just some other resource that you may find interesting.

For that reason, you can quickly navigate from the menu to one of the 5 main categories:

  • Plugins & Modifications

  • Themes

  • Graphics

  • Resources

  • Language Packs

Each main category has sub-categories, each with filtering options.

Browsing and Filtering

Placing the mouse over one of the project boxes quickly allows you to download the latest stable build and view how many times the project has been recommended.

Clicking the project names directs you towards the project page, on which you can see detailed information: full description, previews, license, suggestions, bugs, etc.

Viewing a Project

When you visit a project page, here’s how it looks like:

Project Page

You can expand and collapse the Information, Previews and License sections to view/hide their content.

On the right side, you can see the following options:

  • Download (download page)

  • License (expands the license section)

  • Change Logs (page where the changes for each build are displayed)

  • Report (where you can report a project)

  • Recommend (allows you to recommend projects)

  • Support (either the support link entered by the project author or a link to the support forum on the MyBB Community)

  • Bug Tracker (you will see this option if it’s been enabled by the project author)

  • Suggestions (you will see this option if it’s been enabled by the project author)

  • Translations (translations posted by collaborators or the project owner)

If the owner of the project set a PayPal e-mail for donations, you will see a Donate button on the right as well.
