Like in the example above the template "subSilver" is used. Is the Mod also working on other templates??



Code: Select all

all the MOD's should works with any templates. Just done the modifications in all the templates files you are using.
I have started looking at modding other template files, but they are not always with the same code. :?

Is it just look for nearest match & mod that?

Also I agree, Good tutorial, thanks :D

I downloaded and installed phpmyadmin but I cant find anywhere to 'execute' anything. Is this the samething as running SQL queries?

Add how to run a file?

Post by Steve D » Sat Sep 27, 2003 4:33 pm

This has been great I learned a lot. Question though. I want to install the MOD board_msg_102. I have installed other MODs succesfully. In this one the first step is to upload an included file (.php file) and "run the file."

I'm not sure I understand how to "run the file." Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks

Steve

"run the file" means to upload the file, then visit its url in your web brower :)

This requires you to be able to modify your database. Have a read of these - [Tutorial] How to use phpMyadmin & [Tutorial] How to install a MOD.

folder for and where does it go?

It doesn't need to go anywhere. It contains sql files which should be used instead of the sql above, if you do not use mysql as your database.

This will be because you have not modified your database.
