Dealing with Outdated EE Add-Ons

At Hop Studios, we all love ExpressionEngine’s wonderful community of developers. They come from diverse backgrounds, and have created so many excellent and powerful modules, extensions and add-ons. But sometimes those developers stop supporting their add-ons for one reason or another. The result? You end up frozen at the version of EE that works with your add-on, or you have to give up the add-on and re-develop your site in order to upgrade ExpressionEngine.

Neither of these solutions is healthy for your site. Postponing the upgrade only pushes the problem to some point in the future when you will be forced by a security concern or a necessary improvement to upgrade, this time under time pressure. And everyone gets irritated when you go back to remove code that used to work just fine, either giving up that functionality entirely, or switching to an alternate method that might be less efficient or simply a big investment of time.

We don’t think you should have to choose between two bad options, especially not when there’s another alternative: have us bring that unsupported add-on back to life. Put our years of experience with ExpressionEngine development to work for you. We’ll happily revise your unsupported add-on to be compatible with the upgrade you want to make, no compromise necessary. And we can help you keep that add-on current with future versions of EE as well.

We’ve built a multitude of ExpressionEngine sites, and we’ve created quite a few of those ExpressionEngine add-ons ourselves, so we get it: you should be able to have and eat your cake! [Editor’s note: Yes, I am saying that hiring us means you get to eat cake. Go ahead, we don’t mind a bit.]
