Can mods that have been abandoned by their developers just be removed to help unclutter what is actually available and working?

What a waste of time it is reading through this thread in hopes of a useful mod.  >:(

Just because a mod is abandoned does not mean it is not useful to people.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

You're right...I keep forgetting that there is a portion of users that don't upgrade that often, so they won't encounter the issues that others may have by trying to stay current with the latest releases.

There's also mods that haven't needed to be supported in years because they just work without any changes required.

Hello, just to give everyone an update on what is going on with the site.  I've decided it is not worth any of my valuable time to continue this project.  Mainly because of the lack of support, the spam bots that would hit the site and spam all over it, despite the many many SMF plugins that were installed to help prevent this from happening, and many many other reasons.

Thanks to those who have supported this project at one point or another in the past, but the time has come for me to end Dream Portal's life, which doesn't seem like it will be missed much anyways, considering the lack of downloads compared to all other portals.

Sad to find out it stopped.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I am using it with SMF 2.1 for more then a year without any problems.  It is so good portal
 with many options.

Couldn't agree more. Still using this mod on my live forum and while I am working with ezportal on a dev site I still prefer the way dream portal was set up. The way you configure layouts in dream portal just seems to make more sense to me. Pity the development came to an end, I think it would do great on 2.1

Too many people talked trash on this portal and tried to discredit it from the beginning and even up until the end.  This was the main reason I stopped development on it.  Because I got sick of the trash talk and drama surrounding this Portal.  The other reason was because of the lack of developers as I was the only developer.  We had some good developers in the past and others who contributed to it, but overall, it was a huge headache coding this in my free time all by myself.  And what was worse, is the bugs that other developers left behind that I had to fix.  All for what seemed like nothing to a community who was already, more than satisfied, using Simple Portal and/or EZPortal and/or Tiny Portal.

This mod actually works on a fresh install of SMF 2.0.14 and seems perfectly fine, despite the dream portal site no longer being around and the inability to download the 20+ Modules and 3+ Module Templates, as well as the Russian and Spanish Language packs I had available for download on that site.  Ofcourse, you can always create your own Modules/Templates for it.  Just an FYI.

**EDIT
I tried to originally package all modules with the Portal so that I wouldn't have to offer them separately.  But this was a problem with getting Dream Portal across the finish line and approved here on the SMF site, since "Source" and "Template" for modules were never separated, and seemed like too much work at the time to do this, which is why SMF would not approve it with the Modules attached (as what Simple Portal provides).  I would assume that Simple Portal has separated this properly in order for approval from SMF, but that's just an assumption.  Never used Simple Portal.

Dream Portal won't show up until you activate it via the SMF Core admin area.  Maybe that is what you didn't do yet?  Try going to the SMF Core Features admin area and look for Dream Portal in there.  Let me know if you don't see it in there.

Hi there, oh yep sure did it was activated, some reason it wouldn't show up.
I ended up using Simple Portal no issues.  I have a test forum I may try it on to figure out the problem.
