hashCash download NOT version 1.6.6

Post by Hans-Dieter » Sun May 09, 2021 10:16 pm

Hello,

just downloaded the extension hashCash https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/hashcash/. Installed it and got some problems (visible Captcha note) on Joomla 3.9.26. Thread is in the Administration sub-forum.

Deinstalled it and wanted to download it again. Just to be sure. At that time I noticed that the archive shows version 1.0 instead 1.6.6 as "advertised". Opened my downloaded folder and all files inside the archive are showing the "modified date with 28-October-2014". The Date added to Joomla extension directory.

The last time it was updated was according to the above website Oct. 7 2019.

It seems, that the download link is not correct.
As I am not allowed (yet) to send Privat Messages, this is the only way to communicate this error.

If my assumption/findings are wrong, please forgive me.

The latest version is available from the developer's website: https://www.richeyweb.com/joomla-extens ... ash-plugin.

I sent the developer an email from the contact form of his website, asking him to update the JED entry.

In a similar situation in JED, please contact first the developer. If that does not help, report the extension to the JED team by using the Report! tab in the JED entry. Unsolicited PMs to the forum volunteers are not allowed by the forum rules.

Thank for looking into this.

As I am quite new to the Joomla forum, I was not sure who is looking after the Download links of the extensions.
Would reporting an error like this a unsolicite PM ? Just wondering here.

Cheers.

The developer of an extension is contacted directly, and that does not involve the forum or its moderators.

Reporting an extension from the Report! tab does not involve the forum either.
