Seprate table for mod config's

Post by z2z » Wed Jun 03, 2009 6:54 am

Many Mod (sp. small) use phpbb_config table ... i think it will be better to create separate mod config table for preventing pollution of phpbb_config.

MOD authors can create their own tables if they wish. But there isn't anything in the MOD Validation Checklist that says they can't use phpbb_config for configuration.

Plus it doesn't really matter unless the MOD is uninstalled, if it is uninstalled you would just have to remove it.

Remember that this is what phpbb_config was meant for, configuration for phpBB. ;)

Yes, i agree but considering phpbb_config is very crucial. So I feel so it should be more for phpbb3 core use only ... Just my opinion.

I disagree, I also think MODs should stop adding their own config tables and just use the default one. They should perhaps prefix all their config settings like 'mod_<modname>_'.

I think this is out of the phpBB developer's hands, this more has to do with the MOD Validation Checklist. You could PM a MOD Team Member if you wanted to suggest it as a part of the Validation Checklist if you really wanted to. ;)
