Jeremy Crisp my site is currently powered by Boonex Dolphin 7.4.2. It was working fine on 7.3.5 and when the upgrade to 7.4.0 came out I jumped in not realizing all the incompatibility issues with third party modules etc. What a fiasco that was. since then I have been a bit put off by all things Dolphin and thought to try out UNA in earnest.
The key features on my dolphin site are forum (orca), articles (advanced Articles Modzzz), and Photos (Boonex). I have spent lots of money on 3PM (3rd Party Modules) to extend dolphin over the numerous years I have ran it.
So, yes I was surprised that photos and articles were paid options (subscription) on UNA. I thought my premium license would include them.
Anyway - Gents, I was just voicing an opinion here. Not wrong or right but my opinion. I am glad to see responses to the discussion as it allows the various thoughts to flow. Thanks all.
I have always liked mods by Modzzz Top notch work. Definitely helps having participation. I had stopped my site at 7.3.5 also due to the same but once UNA came out for release, I jumped onboard and glad I did.
Developers can convert the mods to work; Modzzz updated his modules as well as some others. Modzzz will also update other developers' mods as well but for a fee of course. What does UNA offer you that you actually had to move your site? If it ain't broke, don't fix it and by the way, don't buy into the php 5.6 fear mongering.
