For the next version, I thought about adding the possibility for he link to open in new window.
It of course will be optional, meaning that you will be able to select Yes/No in the relevant setting...

Well, I had some free time this last week... :P
Actually, the last two versions are minor corrections in order to get it validated. In fact minor changes from 1.0.8 to 1.0.9 where not even absolutely mandatory in order for the mod to get validated. Perhaps this version (1.0.9) will be the last update for this mod (at least for this phpbb version) since it is as complete as it can get IMO..
Unless someone has any feature requests that I haven't think of and I can implement... ;)

for version 1.0.7 to 1.0.9 are there any changes aside from re-uploading the files?

It would be a good idea to make an update file for each version. Simple MOD but some users may get confused.

No, to update from 1.0.7 to 1.0.9 you don't really need to do anything.. ;)
The only difference is that the install instructions in 1.0.7 in the sql part has:

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` (`config_name`, `config_value`, `is_dynamic`) VALUES ('show_homepage', '0', 0);
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` (`config_name`, `config_value`, `is_dynamic`) VALUES ('show_homepage_in_new', '0', 0);
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` (`config_name`, `config_value`, `is_dynamic`) VALUES ('homepage_url', 'http://www.your_own_site.com', 0);
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` (`config_name`, `config_value`, `is_dynamic`) VALUES ('homepage_title', 'Your homepage title', 0);
while 1.0.9 has:

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('show_homepage', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('show_homepage_in_new', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('homepage_url', 'http://www.your_own_site.com');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('homepage_title', 'Your homepage title');
You see that the only difference is that in 1.0.9 instructions the backticks have been removed and the fields are no more declared as dynamic (which was not necessary).
So you don't really have to do anything, but if you want to be thorough you can simply drop those 4 values

Code: Select all

DELETE FROM phpbb_config WHERE config_name = 'show_homepage';
DELETE FROM phpbb_config WHERE config_name = 'show_homepage_in_new';
DELETE FROM phpbb_config WHERE config_name = 'homepage_url';
DELETE FROM phpbb_config WHERE config_name = 'homepage_title';
and run the 1.0.9 sql query ...

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('show_homepage', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('show_homepage_in_new', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('homepage_url', 'http://www.your_own_site.com');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('homepage_title', 'Your homepage title');
Nothing more is needed in order to update from 1.0.7 to 1.0.9, that's why I did not create update instructions in the first place - there were only minor differences in order to get the mod validated ;)
