2.13 and old Packages?

Hello, I did some searching and haven’t come up with any results related to my issue, so I’m wondering if it’s just me…
In Dynamo 2.13 when I search for packages, I cannot get the details to popup when I click the View Details link that is next to +Install. When I click the View Details link, nothing seems to happen.
Am I alone here? Any ideas on things I could do to try to fix the issue?

Since this is with a new release of Revit I’ve just gone ahead and installed all of the latest versions for the packages we use, so it’s not a big issue right now, but it could be in the future.

Is there any particular package you are looking for?

Just confirmed I’m having the same issue too. Checked a few common packages (Lunchbox, archi-lab, and Orchid) with none of them showing any additional details.

Not sure if packages need to be re-published in 2.13 in order to sort out all the new metadata?

I always downloaded my packages from: dynamopackages.com , the site is down now.
There’s a backup though. (If it still works)
Internet Archive: Wayback Machine

The site is working for me though, What error do you see?

@_Vijay none in particular. I’ve tried clicking on many and none seem to work.

Thanks @Nick_Boyts, glad its not just me.

something to do with the domain it says

Someone forgot to pay maybe?

@Marcel_Rijsmus, thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten about the website, as I always use the interface inside Dynamo to get my packages. The website seems to be working for me on the US side…

Maybe there’s an eruption in the mid Atlantic ridge we don’t know of :rofl: right where the cable is


Dynamopackages.com is working again.

So my time has come…
I need to install DyanmoIronPython2.7 version 2.1.0, the current version available in the package search inside dynamo is 2.5.0. When I download and ‘install’ 2.1.0 from dynamopackages.com, Dynamo doesn’t like it and shows an error in the Package Manager.

Is there a special way to install downloaded packages? I unzipped the download and created a folder in my package directory and copy/pasted the files and folders from the zip file into it while Revit/Dynamo was closed.
Am I doing something wrong? Like I said above, I don’t usually use the website to get packages.
