MODX is a packaging and layout format for mods. It is not an automated install method like AutoMOD.

A MODX install XML file will always be laid out in the same way showing all files to be added and/or formatted instructions on the edits to be made to existing files and sometimes any special instructions for installation.

I have a major problem...

I have no install folder in my website.. and I want to use AutoMod, or even manually installing mods like Thanks and quick reply and such... but most mods have a /install/ thing to add... and I have no /install folder.

When I make one, it says to move, remove, or rename it or I can only see the ACP.

Help please?

Does anyone actually use automod.. because Ive been trying it out and EVERY mod I try to install with it gives error, usually a find issue.. so I try force install and I figure I will fix the errors manually afterwards.. except I don't think it installs anything at all

You'll have to be on-line while you change the language, then you can go back off-line. There is currently no easy way to change language off-line.

For AutoMOD related questions you should post in the AutoMOD forum.

Please help me out...question about the language
my board is in dutch
if the installationinstructions of a mod tell me to change this file: language/en/acp/common.php what do I do?

- do I need to leave this file: language/nl/acp/common.php unchanged
- or do I change both
- or do I change just the dutch?

If you are only using nl on your forum, then just change the nl one (you will probably have to translate it). If you are using both languages on your forum then change both.
Appreciate the extensions/mods/support then buy me a beerImage
