What features would you like to see for the next version of the DBD showcase? We have some really cool features in mind but I thought I would ask our users if they had any suggestions.

Two things.
How about a short list under each category displaying the Widgets they contain, therefore elimating the need to look at each category if you want to see all the Widgets on the site.
I like that rating idea. How about a "top rated" list, and also a "most downloads" list? Those would be really handy.

A few ideas...

1) As already mentioned, ratings would be awesome, especially if there were also 'Top rated' and 'Top downloaded' lists.
2) A URL to a website for the widget, so the user can quickly find other versions, release notes, news, etc. This could be entered in the description, but a specific URL field would make it more formal
3) The showcase doesn't render properly in Firefox. Could this be fixed? Razz

George.

A "not so many layers" version. This is not a dashboard widget ! The page goes weird while browsing a category in a narrow window.
The ability to browse all widgets (Sounds basic, but I did not find a way)
Keep categories to the right when inside a category (anyone thought about browsability here ?)
A way to not have a widget disappear from the homepage because the author post an update (yes, "Cacti" no longer available, I just did an update...)

The weird page will be fixed YBIZEUL Smile

Browsing all widgets? Hmmm. So simple. So ingenious. Razz No, seriously, I didn't think of that. I guess people might like to just browse rather than browse by category.

A feature, not a bug. It's for your own protection that widgets are verified after every upload and update. Thanks for understanding. Flowers

Oops. Will fix. Cheers.
