While this post mentions a few free widgets (which is good), its contents is otherwise highly misleading. Anyone reading this post will get the impression the free widgets are equivalent to my plugins (which is untrue). There is a distinct difference between a widget and a plugin that is specifically integrated in the software. Let's dissect some aspects of this post.
Scrolling News Ticker - There are many of these generic tickers that are freely available.
https://una.io/page/view-product?id=314 is configurable specifically for UNA and integrates with content that is posted in the site (News / Articles etc) . You cannot get that functionality with a free widget.
https://una.io/page/view-product?id=294 is not the same (as incorrectly stated by the author of this post). This module is a currency ticker that utilizes the API from openexchangerates.org
Unlike free widgets, my weather module ( https://una.io/page/view-product?id=310 ) integrates with UNA Profiles, Groups, Events etc.
urban dictionary - https://una.io/page/view-product?id=298 is based on similar concept as Glossory but has additional features.
Finally, if you do not like a plugin, simply do not purchase it. However, that does not mean other members will not find it useful. This is an open market environment . All my modules that I have posted here so far (news/articles/pets/deals/Garage Sales etc.) are based on modules that I already have for the Dolphin script. For example, I have a dictionary module released for Dolphin over 10 years ago (see https://www.boonex.com/m/Dictionary) long before UNA even conceptualized Glossory module. If you are not familiar with me from Dolphin, take a look at my Dolphin portfolio at http://www.boonex.com/market/posts/modzzz . As time goes on, I plan to release most of those modules for UNA too.
No matter how good a programmer you are, there is a learning curve for software such as UNA. It is typical for vendors to start their journey with a new software by firstly releasing modules that are on the simpler side (while continuing to learn the software) then proceed to more advanced modules as their competency level increases. There are not many vendors developing for UNA at this moment. Unwarranted vendor bashing is not the way forward my brother. I am not against critique but posting misleading info about a vendor's products is offensive and negatively affects the vendor.
