Beginner to extension development

Post by Jayson » Sun Jun 02, 2019 10:16 am

Hello everyone,

I'm interested in coding phpBB extensions having previously coded with PHP.

How advanced a PHP (and MySQL) programmer must one be to develop extensions even at their simplest? Also, is there a guide to understand the preexisting variables defined by the PHP software to help with extension creation?

I would appreciate any tips to familiarise myself with the phpBB code structure in order to get started.

Thanks.
