    It is very difficult to follow on the upgrades and latest release on Forge items to ensure that our websites are current.  

    I suggest that the Forge have a sort option added that displays the Forge entries in release date order with the newest release at the head of the list.

      By "Forge" I assume that you are referring to https://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/extension-forge. It has been dead for several years, and has been replaced by https://github.com/DNNCommunity.

      This is where the former "core" modules live. There are other modules that also live here. You can scroll or search for particular modules, and discover new ones. Visiting the page for an extension reveals the upgrade history and the DNN versions required to use the current module.

      I also believe that the DNN upgrade service - which shows the version of installed modules and the upgrade version - is also working. But, if you see a reference to version 99.xxx of a module, it makes sense to investigate a bit more as that is a nonsensical version.

      Does this help?  Adn, I hope I'm right!

        Or maybe https://dnncommunity.org/Forge ?

          Upgrade version numbers 99.xx.xx for DNN built in and DNNCommunity modules are caused by a known issue of the current upgrade service, which should be solved soon.

            Yes I am talking about the "Forge" tab on the dnncommunity.org website.  

            There are cases when a new/updated module becomes interesting as it has finally be ungraded.  Using the current version of the Forge display, it is impossible to learn about this. 

            A simple option to display the entries in date or release sequence would make this feature of the website easier to navigate/use.

              The list you see at the Forge is currently not an automated list.
              (that would be nice, but someone needs to build it and there are a lot of other things to do)
              If the extensions you are using are Open Source and on GitHub I suggest you subscribe to them on GitHub for release notifications.
              BTW, if we automate the Forge one day, it will most likely only contain these GitHub updates anyway.
