I have created Upload Extensions Updater so that any version of Upload Extensions can be updated to the current latest version without FTP.
To update the extension without FTP do the following:
  1. Make sure that Upload Extensions is already installed on your board, The first installation is possible only with standard installation method.
  2. Upload the new extension Upload Extensions Updater (download link, GitHub repository) using Upload Extensions in the ACP.
  3. Enable Upload Extensions Updater (click on the corresponding link).
  4. Navigate to Upload Extensions Updater in the ACP (the link to it should appear in the same section as the link to Upload Extensions).
  5. Check out the available updates and click on the "Update" button.

Good work and as I have said before this should be part of the core.

A few initial observations:
  • When using the "tree" to view the files you have to click on the folder name to expand/collapse the tree. My natural instinct, and I suspect others, is to click on the folder icon - can this be changed?
  • You have an undersoce in the folder name and namespace which is not allowed
  • Is this really version 3.1.0-RC3? This seems very high for a first release

OK, we can change it.

I have discussed this with John.
Later we can move to another repository without an underscore.
The version number is according to phpBB version number.
I don't mind this approach, but I told John that it may be incompatible with the requirements.

Wait a little - we won't have those small bugs in the final release. ;)

Unless I have missed something extensions have their own version number and do not use phpBB's version - that is only required for compatibility.

Yes, you really shouldn't be using the same version as phpBB itself for your extension.

Although I guess ext authors are free to use the version numbering they want, I think it would indeed be confusing to use the exact same naming convention as phpBB.

If I were you guys, I would simply start with version 1.0.0, so you can update it whenever you want and don't need to keep some weird pace with the core.

Additionally, you should probably remove "phpbb/phpbb": "3.1.*@dev" from the composer.json "require", since we now use the soft-require version only.

I use this type of versioning for my personal extensions - see "Reenable extensions".

It was added for compatibility with early phpBB 3.1.*@dev versions. ;)

I like the versioning in this way, telling a bit where the extension is for. Something like I read a lot "your style 3.0.11 is behind, you have to update to 3.0.12" or going from windows 3.11 to 95, to 7 and now 8 :D

What the heck, it's a number

That's why I suggested 1.0.0. I don't think anyone would think: "oh this extension is for phpBB 1.0.0". ;)

But whatever.

And how is that different now? You have in the DB a list of which version it is for, so that does not defer from having it as version. You will however get issues if you want to bring more as 1 version for each phpBB version ;). Providing the right phpBB version in composer.json is the right way of doing it.

Thanks for the extension. It will help a LOT of people who do not know or have problems grasping how to manually install mods!

I've tested it with a few betas and have had no problems yet. Great job! :mrgreen:
