The changes are far too numerous to be able to do it by hand, so the only possible use for it is autoMOD, which, as I pointed out, has the same fundamental problems as the automatic updater.
And as you found those errors you could correct them in the MODX xml file, until it works with your board.

I am not talking about doing it by hand (good god) but rather running it through the automod, getting back the places that have errors because of changed parts in your files, changing those, and being able to run it again until all the errors are eliminated.

Then you still run the automod, sans the errors.

Alternatively those errors could be manually fixed one by one and then the lines removed completely from the MODX file so it skips what you have already corrected, until it works without error.

Effectively you are doing the same as the auto updater, where by you resolve the conflicts by hand and that is all.

Yes, but I'm no expert with the updater and removing changes from it. It gets rid of needing to keep a checklist of repairs to make, and when you have it all working, it runs smoothly and effectively and it gets it done. You get the benefit of exacting changes to make as well, as from memory when I did the 303 to 304 I ended up having a heck of a time making sure I had the right changes in the right files, and finally gave up and went vanilla.

The autoupdate allows you to download the conflicts on those files that it finds conflicts with.

The author of my style said he is not doing updates anymore to it. So am I kinda screwed then if the skin doesn't work with 3.05? I would not even know what to change, unless the updater will tell me what works and what doesn't.

Just use the same code that updates the base templates and manually add that to your current one

This is where I am not sure what you mean. I'm not sure where to find the manual code, and where to find it, where to put it. Is there a tutorial that I can maybe read?

T U for answer, know about that packages, still hope to see code changes...
here is the link to an unofficial full code changes package
http://files.p3net.net/phpbb/phpbb_3_0_ ... hanges.txt
it was posted on page 6
And is most likely wrong, and will introduce bugs. DO NOT USE SUCH THINGS.

Hi

Thatnk you for this great team work :)

I have asked before about adding feature to make the board be multilanguage but in every details , here what I mean
FaresNB wrote: In the "Custom profile fields" section in ACP we find an option for adding the translation of what we are adding as a new profile field . that is only when you have more than one language on your board .


After I add a new forum , les suggest its title would be " English Grammar " . This is fine since the default board language is English . Now this board has a second language which is , let's say , Arabic .
When a user change the language of this board to Arabic from UCP , the forum title " English Grammar " would remain as it is . While I want it here to transform into " قواعد الإنجليزية" which is the translation of this forum title in Arabic .
This translation , can be entered in the same place where we enter the forum title .

and this is exactly what happens in adding a Custom profile field .

here you can see how the custom profile transform into the other language as I entered while adding this profile field

when the forum language is Arabic :

When the user language is English :
Image


I want this to happen too for
forums titles , its description , ranks titles and groups names
I believe this should be in phpBB3 as default :roll:
Do you thing that could this happen in th next release ?

I don’t see why we can’t just get more timely updates so when there are any, they are smaller instead of being HUGE and causing problems for heavily modded boards.
