it does neither… it only checks MODs that have a MOD Version Check file included.

Excuse my ingorance on this, but how would we know if a MOD we added to our forum, has a MOD Version Check Number File?

Thanks!

There would be an XML file in the /adm/mods/ directory after you install the MOD.

At the moment, the only MODs I know of using this are by Handyman and Highway of Life.

Other MOD authors are also very welcome to take advantage of this very useful module ;)
It will give their MOD extra value, and is very handy for the user of their MODs.

If you install a MOD that has a MOD Version Check file included, you'll want to install this to make sure you keep it up to date :)

How about a method that doesn't involve two extra files that need to be kept updated for every version? The existing installation instructions should have all the required info save for the remote location of the XML version file. So what about just having MOD authors add one line to their instructions specifying this location, like:

Code: Select all

<instructions href="http://www.example.com/install.xml" />


Then use the database to keep track of local version numbers. Have the user extract the MOD to the mods directory, where your script will scan whenever the user clicks on the tab. It can even break them down into categories: MODs that are stored in the database and in the directory, MODs in the database that aren't in the directory, and MODs in the directory that aren't in the database. Or for a simpler implementation, just have the user browse to the install instructions file they want to add.

Excellent idea… I'll come up with something :)

Please note, there are future plans for this MOD, but I won't say what features will be added at this moment.
