pertneer, when you view the MOD Details page, you could subscribe to the RSS feed for that MOD to be notified of updates for it... there is also the RSS Feed on the main MODs page (list view) that orders by latest updates the MODs that have recently updated in the MOD Database.

    </div>

Cannot be found in a phpBB 3.0.1 installation of posting_buttons.html. This could be due to the use of CDATA with a space between the < and ! characters. You can use the < entity to work around this.

Code: Select all

    <td width="80" align="center" valign="top">
        <script type="text/javascript">
          // <![CDATA[
       colorPalette('v', 7, 6)
          // ]] >
      </script>
    </td>

Cannot be found in subsilver2's posting_body.html. This may also be due to the CDATA end sequence. You can use ]]> to not throw off the parser in web browsers..
2. also need an answer, why it is not possible for the admin to make a new folder (here > media/mp3/lila_info/)
and why the mod is denied, when the admin must make a new folder (here > media/mp3/lila_info/)?


Here is a report on why your modification was denied:

Code: Select all

                root/mp3_player/mp3/lila_info/*.*     media/mp3/lila_info/*.*

1. Not a lot, started with phpBB in 6/2008. That time with the MODs Database too.
2. Looks good, awesome.
3. Easy to find the MODs, easy understandable descriptions etc...
4. It's really difficult to get a MOD into it.
5. Yes sure.
6. To submit yes, the another one new for me.
7. No
8. They form to fill is really easy.
9. It is really difficult to get a MOD validated (as said above)
10. I use all of them.
11. Hmmm, maybe adding screenshots/demos of the MOD in the first post of the MOD.
12. Adding the option to add Screenshots/demos.
13. The same as 12.
14. The same as 11.
15. Yes sure!!!

Would you guys please separate your mod releases by phpbb version releases. I get a little upset to scroll through the mod releases database and finding one I like just to click on it and find that it is for an older version of phpBB.

Thank you!

Everything is already ordered by phpBB version, if you search in the MODDB itself, and not in the forum.
