have you installed yourself your forum ? if no, try to ask this to the personn who installed it for you. If you can't, i think you won't be able to install MOD's

morpheus2matrix....great job, Y ou have helped alot.

One question, I want to use Cash_MOD on my forum, but if course we all know its defaulted to subSilver. What steps do you have to take to allow my Cash_MOD to work with another template like subVereor.

Would I have to change the template files only and leave everything else alone? What do I have to do to set it up to work with subVereor?

The files that are used..

viewtopic.php,
includes/constants.php
includes/usercp_viewprofile.php,
includes/functions_post.php
language/lang_english/lang_admin.php,
language/lang_english/lang_main.php,
templates/subSilver/viewtopic_body.tpl,
templates/subSilver/profile_view_body.tpl
exchange.php
includes/functions_cash.php
admin/admin_cash_config.php
admin/admin_cash_currencies.php
admin/admin_cash_exchange.php
admin/admin_cash_forums.php
admin/admin_cash_help.php
admin/admin_cash_log.php
admin/admin_cash_settings.php
templates/subSilver/exchange_body.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_config.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_currencies.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_exchange.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_forum.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_help.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_log.tpl
templates/subSilver/admin/cash_settings.tpl


Thank you!

ok thanks man great!!! :D

Code: Select all

1) The "COPY" action : 

If in a MOD, you see something like that : 
Code: 

# 
#-----[ COPY ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
file.php -> phpBB/ 
file.tpl -> phpBB/templates/subSilver/ 
 


This just mean that you have to upload the file "file.php" into the phpBB root dir, and the file "file.tpl" into the template directory, directly without modify them. 
ok it says i upload the file...how do i do that? it dosnt say that...do i go to my forum and click administration panel? do i need any programs?

let me know thanks!

upload the file with a program for uploading files : upload it as the same way you have uploaded the files of phpBB.


PS : Locked, as this tutorial can be found here : http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article.php?article_id=150
