First Ever Add On: Simple Newsletter

I have released my first ever add on for qEngine family (qEngine CMS, Cart Engine & Kemana Directory). This add on allow you to add a simple newsletter to your web site.

As you may have realized, I have removed newsletter feature starting in qEngine 6.1 (and Kemana 3.2). But there are some requests to re-add the feature in qEngine, so I created this module.

You can learn more about this add on here.

Add ons are free to download to all gold members, you can purchase your gold member here which includes a commercial license. Gold members are valid for lifetime. I will release at least one add on (module or skin) a month.

If you have purchased lower class membership, you can upgrade to gold class, please contact me for more information.

To download, please login by using the email address when you purchase the script via PayPal, the password is the same with the email address, you can always change the password in you User Panel.

Kemana 3.2 is Now Available For Free Download!

I'm very pleased to announce that today, Kemana 3.2, is available for free download!

Kemana 3.2 is a free PHP link directory script which can be used for multiple purposes other than link directory: classified ads, school yearbook, product catalog and more.


Changes in version 3.2 including:

[KE] Mandatory bug fixes, many thanks to Mario Kästner (
[KE] English language tidied up, many thanks to Peter Walker ( )
[KE] Much better search, visitors can search anything (title, description, custom field) and provide more accurate results
[KE] Category list in welcome now have clickable thumbs
[KE] Replace circle rating with classic but trustworthy rating star
[KE] Lock menu editing for directory related items
[KE] Shortened description text in grid mode, you should use grid mode for image focussed listings
[KE] Removed site wide features as it overlapped with directory features
[KE] 'No Detail' mode, when clicked will open the target web site instead of detail page
[KE] New custom field types: URL & Video (Youtube & Vimeo only)
[KE] Ke_core module allows visitors to change view mode (requires DIV ID)
[KE] Allow URL masking to hide real URL (useful for referral)
[QE] As always, bug fixes
[QE] Add more permissions
[QE] Tidy up image library
[QE] Drop Newsletter feature. You can use mailchimp or yahoogroups to manage newsletter.
[QE] Drop country table, replaced with /includes/countrylist.php file.
[QE] Admin can no longer login from front end. This will defeat the purpose of renaming the ACP.

Bootstrap Navbar

Kemana 3.2 is built on qEngine 16.1 which replaced Superfish menu with Bootstrap Navbar menu. While there are some limitations to the Bootstrap Navbar, but I really like how it looks on mobile devices.

Smarter Search

There were some serious weakness in the previous version of Kemana (Kemana 2, 3.0 & 3.1) which makes searches to return unexpected results.

For example a listing with a title: "Pizza Delivery 24h" and custom field city: "New York". Thus searching for "pizza new york" will not return any results. Current fix will return correct results.

More Compact Grid Mode

Grid mode now has a more compact design. Grid mode is suitable for picture focused web site. If you prefer a classical view, you can use list mode.

New Custom Fields

I have added two more custom field types: URL & Video. URL is useful to enter more URL in addition to primary site URL. You can use video to show embedded video on the web site. Currently, video custom field supports YouTube & Vimeo videos.

Updater from v3.1

I will make an updater for Kemana 3.1 to upgrade to Kemana 3.2. Expect it to be available in a week or so. Once it ready, I will post an update on this web site.

Got Ideas for Kemana 3.2? Tell me here!

I'm currently working on Kemana 3.2 (sort of). Some of planned updates (apart from bug fixes):

  • Ability to skip detail page entirely. So clicking on 'Details' will bring visitors to the destination web site instead.
  • New custom field types.
  • Some design tweaks.
  • Ability to switch between grid & list view in ke_core module.
  • Much smarter & faster search.
  • Finally comes with an upgrader from Kemana 3.1.
  • And since it will use qEngine 16.1, it will adopt all new features & changes from qEngine 16.1, including Bootstrap NavBar instead of Superfish.

If you have any ideas for Kemana, please send them to me. You can use this comment form, contact me form or Facebook page.

Expect Kemana 3.2 in next month or two.
