    It appears that pm.php has been missing form 9x and 10 now.

    How do we on the windows version extend plesk?

    If we can not extend it its useless.

    Could you please be more specific? What is pm.php and what you want to extend?

    What i mean is if you look at the internal API directions for plesk it apparently shows only unix.

    Say you want to add a module to plesk that you have a admin interface for, a user interface etc.

    It should be able to be integrated into plesk where you can validate the credentials using the INTERNAL api and use the native forms and internal API not the rpc api.

    All the documentation shows you have to include pm.php to gain access to the plesk functions and you extent the classes and put your templates , forms etc.

    The files which they speak of in the module developer documentation are missing on the windows version.

    Can we get some concise information of creating modules for plesk with the internal API like you can for linux but for windows?

    The documentation you have the examples are kinda *feh*, can you give us a example module that extends plesk that we can use as a base frame for creating our own integration that does not use the RPC api? but used the admin php so we can extend the plesk panel?


    The documentation i am talkiing about is listed here: http://www.parallels.com/ptn/documentation/plesk/

    http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/PPP9/Doc/en-US/plesk-9.5-unix-mod-guide
    and
    http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/PPP9/Doc/en-US/plesk-9.5-unix-mod-guide

    As you can see on the page the listing between windows and unix is gone. but the api includes comments about windows.

    The examples say you need to include pm.php thats under plesk/admin/plib/modules.

    This exists on the linux side not the windows versions.

    SO please tell us how do we create modules for windows that can access this module api?
    and use the look and feel of plesk without creating a custom button and hacking on some phpscripts in a subdir under the admin/htdocs.

    Did you guys leave this out of the windows version?
    If so your really limiting people.

    Hello BrandonH.

    We are going to extend Panel for Windows with Add-Ons. It will be not similar to the current Plesk Modules implementation but the next generation.
    Can't say anything about delivery date yet. Probably will get more details about it next year.
