Post news Report RSS Widgets everywhere... and v5!

To make sharing downloads, games, mods easier we've created an easy to use widget system. Oh and work has finally begun on v5, learn how you can get access to the alpha.

Posted by on

In an effort to make sharing downloads easier, we have created a handy widget system. You will now see each download page has an "embed widget" button. It works just like a Youtube embed. Copy and paste the widget anywhere you want (here, on your homepage, forums etc). Then the widget contains a button to begin the download directly without any messing around. Here is it in action using Brutal Doom as the example.


Furthermore, the widget system works on virtually any profile URL on the site. Just add /widget to the end of the URL you are visiting to see it in widget form.

v5 Alpha

After talking about it for years, work on v5 of the site has finally begun. Our goal is keeping the same layout with minor improvements, that focus on usability, responsiveness and mobile support. This way we retain familiarity while improving everything else. At the moment we are just experimenting with ideas, but if you would like to see what we have done we plan on opening up our development in the group here. We expect v5 development to take about 4 months or so, and welcome all feedback and bug reports in our Github board.

Some of things I wanted:
- Moddb needs proper notifications. When I upload an addon and somebody comments it I should get a notification on email or in moddb.
- Would be cool if addons acted like workshop items in Steam. Meaning you can add a youtube video and multiple screenshots for your addon.

I'd really like to see comment notifications too, its a pain to look at everything for a new comment.

Both of these features are planned in v5. Badly needed I agree

Another nice thing would be a possibility to cancel your decision when you give someone a + or a - carma point. Because now if you make a miss click you downvote a person for no reason and can't do anything about that. Would be nice to be able to change the decision within, say, a minute.

Also, for some reason the review text field says there's a 5000 characters limit, but in fact the limit is 4000.

Great work with the widget system!

I would like to get an update instead of an email when somebody responds me and also I would like to get an update when someone comments on my picture or a video.

Thanks for very soon responding! I want to also ask why I'm getting an error (Your connection is not secure) on Firefox when I sign it. It's only, last two days. I don't have it on any other website so I hope that this site wasn't hacked or something like that. Like I wrote I doesn't have it on any other website expect here on Moddb when I sign in.

That's good to hear, but I still have that error. I have it in Google chrome too, but there are more sites in that. In Firefox is only Moddb and unfortunately I don't know why.

Also, if someone wants to suggest me to check my time or date don't. I have them set right.
