Use the code changes mods to go stepwise from version to version and the run /install/update_to_latest.php from version 2.0.22. Here are all the code change mods: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/catdb.php?cat=48. Thanks for the quick reply! I am assuming that there is no way to do it directly from 2.0.1...

upgrading from 2.0.17 to 2.0.22

I have a lot of MOD on my 2.0.17 forum. How do I upgrade/update my forum to 2.0.22 by using MOD style update file? What I mean is: you provide a MOD file with only the changes from 2.0.21 to 2.0.22, but there isn't one for upgrading from older version (like 2.0.17) to the current one. So, how do I u...

I'm assuming that you are referring to attachments (and specifically the "special category" section of the Manage Extension Groups section). There doesn't seem to be any way of creating new special categories. Depending on how they work internally, someone might make a mod once Olympus is...

New attachment extension

Hopfully, this won't be considered an 'illegal' mod question. I have a special file (lets call it .flt). How can I make phpbb3 to invoke the plugin/active-x for that file. Let me clarify: For .wmv we use the wm player plug-in/object/embed tags. for .swf we invoke the flash player plug-in/object/embe...

IN regard to post: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=407391 You (the moderator) locked the post. You stated that you will not provide support for MOD yet.

I need to be able to specify a unique and different picture for the each topic (rather than have to use a predefined set of icons). For example: Each topic in my foru...
