New download type - Subscription required

Postby shoulders » Thu Oct 19, 2017 11:24 am

There are now a lot of extensions that say they are free but in reality there are not because you need a paid subscription service with them to use them.

Can the JED consider implementing this new download type to prevent the abuse of the word FREE.

An example of a listing I would change is:

https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... l-address/

They do give a 31 day free trial but after that you have to pay, so I would not regard this as free,even thought the software technically is because it is GPLv2, however the JED is for a mix of user types, developers and end users.

thanks

That should be listed as commercial then. Please use the report button on the extension listing
