    It's not hard to work on - fairly well set up.

    I bought some licenses a few years ago but was disheartened by
    1. the demise of directories generally
    2. the developer saying he wanted to sell licenses while he could because his focus was moving to something else
    3. users saying that v5 sucked compared to v4
    if their forum is dead it might be that those three factors have had an impact.

    I have a phpld v5 website and my 'contact' page stopped working. Tried to contact the forum for a bit of help, but none, it's gone.
    I think it is about time i started looking for another cms possibly wordpress and just forget about phpld.
    The guy that owns phpld should just sell the site and script to someone else that hasn't lost enthusiasm for it.

    It shouldn't be hard to fix, the code is all open.

    Yes, the forum has gone, but official and proper support for the phpld script ceased a long time ago. The owner there had been threatening to get rid of the forum ages ago, while also stating to me once in a PM there that people that just purchased one script were not worth the time and effort. I also get a ton of complaints in my own forum from users who have purchased the script saying that their support requests for errors were continually going unanswered.

    I have been running a third party support and development service for the phpLD script for years, based at my own forum and as far as I know, the ONLY third-party mod developer still operating. You can also find free information for common and depreciated code errors, related to phpLD, in my forum which is not going anywhere. Not sure if I can post my forum link, so just search Google/Bing for my username instead!

    Yes, it is true that we closed the forum at phpLD. We actually still sell phpLD licenses occasionally, but quite different from when we were selling 10+ per day a few years ago. With minimal revenue now we just offer paid support now HERE. And actually we consistently have about 10-15 hours of paid work to do each and every week in our jobs area. We still have many loyal customers who value our programming and support for their business ventures, not only phpLD related work. But 12 years since we launched phpLD, it is obvious that human edited directories are not nearly as popular as they once were in the past. We don't have extra revenue for free support and the like. Sorry, I wish it were different. That being said, all of our programmers are still with us, but working on another software product now, and life is good. Thanks for your concern, and again sorry we are not keeping the forum open any longer.

    David - thanks for continuing to support the product. I have two phpLD's that are ticking over just nicely.

    Thank you. Yes, while we are smaller, we still have new people buying our product and setting up directories every week. There has been an uptick from China recently. And that is good because I have been learning Chinese for two years. I am going to translate this now without using a dictionary. HAHA
    谢谢。对啦,当我们是更少的时候,每周我们已经有客人卖我们的东西,他们会开始新的网站。最近从中国有更多客人。他挺好的事情,因为我已经学习总问两个年。现在我把这个信息变成中文翻译,并且我不会使用一本词典。哈哈

    @dvduval I've still got a couple of directories running but they're mostly decoy sites. I got a request to add a submission at one and, since they're not competition, I was happy to. However I get this error:

    upload_2017-7-5_15-36-35.png

    Any ideas?
