"Extensions" are a different approach and creating MODs will be discouraged, although still possible and still applicable to 3.1.Master_Cylinder wrote:3.1 Extensions are *so* different that they all have to be redone anyway, right?
What this thread is about, however, is allowing MODs (extensions) and styles to be installed via the ACP, similar to how WP works and WP does work well. I don't know if the WP plugin/theme/update equivalent of the ACP uses hooks or some other SDK/API that their plugin/theme writers use but such a change to the ACP would have to go in 3.1 or later so it seems that this idea will be about Extensions not MODs although I guess it could include some MODs that don't edit core files. WP does allow manual uploading of plugins if the admin prefers, you can download a plugin to your HDD and search your drive for it in the WP ACP or you can search WP.com for the plugins that were accepted into their database right from the WP ACP. There's no reason a new phpBB ACP couldn't do the same.DavidIQ wrote:We are not planning on accepting MODs that require edits at this time. The hope is that if a MOD requires an event somewhere that doesn't have an event that the event request is made and that there are more frequent releases of phpBB to address the lack of events.asinshesq wrote:Will we still allow modx style mods with validation?? Or will those be history (other than on hack sites)?
You and programmers both breathe and think, so a lot of the work should be of similar achievability or at least comprehensible. If you compare it like that you could almost do it yourself.Master_Cylinder wrote:They both use php/mysql so a lot of the code should be similar or at least portable
