In my case EM find some mods and installs them but doesn't see others that have been uploaded to admin/mods (such as better_captcha, easy botstopper and others). Can anyone help?

As I see the un-answered posts.

here goes.

I installed EasyMod 0.3.0 today. It installed without any errors. I had the same problem.

One thing I found was, when I had un-zipped the TextualConfirmation-1.0.1 I (un-zipped to a folder) on my pc, so when I ftp'd
it to the mods folder, it was actually within two folders. ex.(mods/TextualConfirmation-1.0.1/TextualConfirmation-1.0.1/etc...

I deleted all of it, and this time made sure I double clicked on my folder on PC and only sent the one bundle.

Went back into EasyMod, and there it was! :D Installed it. It even said I needed to Do-It-Yourself some details, but they had been changed
when I looked. Guess its not sure if my template is compliant, although in EasMod History it shows both the sub-silver and my
re-edited template.


As for the better-captcha I moved the index.mod file out of the (contrib) folder and it showed up and installed, but it didn't
add the captcha.php into my forum folder. Think its something to do with his folder tree in the bundle. Something is outta place.

I'll figure it out, but that one is so easy to manually do, that its hardly worth the time.

HINT: EasyMod looks for either a install.txt or install.mod file...

Hope this Helps!

EasyMOD doesn't look for install.txt or install.mod
But the install file has to be in the root of the directory that the MOD is.

Code: Select all

That would work, but this wouldn't:

Code: Select all

And as long as the MODs have the correct permissions and the correct headers, EM should have no trouble in finding it.
