phpBB3 Developer's Guide

Post by motumbo »

Hello. I'm pretty new to phpBB3. I use SMF and am going with phpBB for any new forums I create (if I create them). I was wondering if there is any sort of developer's guide or overview so I can get an idea of how phpBB3 works under the hood so I can understand and tweak the code if necessary.

I do not need a user's manual. I know how to create boards and delete posts. I'm just looking for an overview of how the source code works. I searched the forum and didn't find anything. Also, I did stumble upon area51.phpbb.com and saw the function reference, but that doesn't give me an overview.

Right now I'm looking at this:

Code: Select all

 <!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} &bull; <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->
I'm kind of wondering how that's parsed and where. That kind of stuff. There's a lot of files in this release.

Thanks.

Try looking at the MOD documentation: http://www.phpbb.com/mods/documentation/ Also, the code guidelines (At area51) give some information.

Hi,
Sorry for posting to an old thread.
I searched the forum before posting about how phpbb code works or if there is a developer or MODs manual and this thread was one of the results.
I am afraid that the mentioned link resulted 404 error.
So was it deleted or modified to another one.
Or if you have a better option I am all ears.
Thanks :)

Yes it is old and kind of embarrassing but just used to search before posting.
Thanks a lot for your help.
