[Solved] Move "Extensions" to "Customizing and Extending"

Postby RGB » Sat Dec 10, 2011 3:21 pm

I think "Extensions" sub-forum should not be under "Applications" but under "Customizing and Extending".
What do you think?

I think it is so obvious that extensions are extending the office suite and should therefor be a part of "Customizing and Extending". But due to that I always thought there must be a real good reason, why extensions were initially counted as applications. Maybe because you can install them and they have their own filename extension?

OpenOffice 3.1.1 (2.4.3 until October 2009) and LibreOffice 3.3.2 on Windows 2000, AOO 3.4.1 on Windows 7
There are several macro languages in OOo, but none of them is called Visual Basic or VB(A)! Please call it OOo Basic, Star Basic or simply Basic.

Looking at that board, I see that it consists of issues people have with extensions. It is somewhat similar to the board dealing with Macros &c. There is no single extension in the way that there is only a single spreadsheet, single text writer, etc. Extensions are not part of the office suites. I agree the move makes sense.

I agree. There is no real reason why it had been made separate as far as I can recall.
So I've moved the section.
