Using EM to install mods especially security fixes, is such a great feature I'm surprised EM wasn't part of the phpbb3 core.
not a very good analogy there.
installing MODs is something that any one with the ability to make a post in a board can do.
if you can read and know how to copy and paste, you can install any phpbb MOD out there.
is easymod easier? you bet.
is it the best way to run the updates when you have MODs installed? you bet.
is it hard to do the updates manually? no way.
not hard, just time consuming.
easymod is a time saver more that anything else.
I always use it unless the MOD won't install with it.
