Seems like it. I can't find it anywhere. There is a link in the forum list (Using DNN Platform> Using Modules and Other Extensions ( a link to DNN Forge). It takes you to, but that is not Forge, but a general DNN download site.

I've had some clients using DNN for many years and they recently wanted me to up grade them from 6.x to 9.1. Looking to upgrade the Feedback module (hoping it is now responsive). Just looking for an upgrade path and download for this module. Does it exists? I did find the Git repository (, but frankly, I find them not very user friendly. Where is the list of package options (install vs upgrade)?

If it's not dead:

  • What is the link? 
  • Why is it so hard to find and outdated links to it on this forum (first line of post) and within DNN9.1.?
  • Update the link at least on the forum link mentioned at the top of this post. 
  • The Extensions tab in 9.1.1 lists that an upgrade is available for the Feedback module, but when you click on it, it takes you to (, which turns out just to be the store homepage.
  • Create a sticky in this forum topic with the basic to at least get to it, how to do installs, upgrades of the modules.

If it is dead:

  • Add a sticky to this forum topic stating as such, and options/alternatives for upgrading maybe? Or, too bad, go buy one at the Store.
  • Remove the upgrade notifications in the DNN Extensions list
  • Remove the link in the forum list (referred to in first line of this post).

You are correct in that the forge is no longer available. We are encouraging open source extension creators to post their OSS extensions in the store and you can already see this happening if you visit the DNN Store and filter extensions by price from low to high -  you'll find a lot of free extensions there.

Moving forward you'll see continued focus on merging community, corporate, OSS, vendors, and ecosystem. You will also see things such as this forum get cleaned up (as you noted about removing the link to this Forge forum thread). Things are in the works and are being planned as we navigate through the transition. Some of the items will take more time than others.

Hope this helps...

it is a pity, as it makes it more difficult for users to detect available extensions, but maybe DNN Corp. is going to change their attitude towards community contributions in the future - fingers crossed!

Looks like the end. The Forge is gone and the latest build is corrupted. How sad. Have nothing but "null" issues and errors with 9.0.x builds. Frustrating. I have installed DNN over 50 times since the beginning and never ran into these issues. Looks like the slow drive to kill off the community edition is proceeding full speed ahead. Got to get the "Paying" customers now huh boys?
