Hi Rohit!
Thanks for posting on our community.
If you are looking for a larger database of apps, v3 would be the right choice; since v4 is still under development there isn't any stable apps for it yet. While, apps for v3 and v4 should be compatible, developers still need to run tests before they release it for v4.
I personally like v4 and would wait for it, but my opinion might be bias since I am working on it. :D
I did a search on our store and one marketplace app that might interest you is:
If you have any further questions let us know.

I asked my server host about the OpenSSL exploit and this is the response I received:

Hello Kirk,

I'm happy to say there's nothing you need to do. :) We actually became aware of this vulnerability the day it was announced around the first week of April, and had all of our servers patched within a week. I have personally checked your server and everything is patched and up to date. So, no worries there. Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or concerns though.

Not exactly true. There are a number of cases where fox will trigger errors or reject statements. There really is no way to send any query directly to the database unless you circumvent the database interface.

A feature request is needed.

This example is contrived but exhibits one issue:

Phpfox::getLib('database')->query("UPDATE phpfox2_user SET full_name='fred' WHERE user_name='steward';UPDATE phpfox2_user SET user_name='fred' WHERE user_id=2");

SQL does this no problem. But Phpfox triggers an error.

There's another, long forgotten now... if I played with the IN() clause I could find it again. Basically fox has reduced all of us to the lowest common denominator of sql.

Which is fine.

But seriously don't kill yourself trying to use the phpfox database library unless you are doing exactly what fox has anticipated.

Compound queries or offbeat constructs require PDO.

Many hours lost here.

It is not the case that you can send arbitrary queries to the database.

Thanks data66 very much for the helpful guide!

Actually I want to disable the core profile feed and create a block that show feed belongs to an user (integrated with third party module). It is very difficult for me to do this. I will follow by your guide and try to do something.
