Participating in Development

Post by nick.anderegg » Wed Feb 10, 2010 11:53 pm

I feel really stupid asking this, and it's probably not even the right place to ask it, but here goes:

What is the best way to familiarize yourself with the phpBB code? I kinda sorta did some phpBB tweaking and stuff a long time ago, and what back in phpBB 2, and I no longer remember how to do anything. I was trying to figure something out on a copy I pulled off the SVN, but the code was just so complex, I didn't know where to begin. How should I go about figuring out the inner workings of phpBB?

Thanks,

Nick

"Modding" is probably the best way to familiarise yourself with the code. There are a number of sites that help out with 'Modding. I also recommend getting used to the phpBB 'Modding forums, where you can ask questions and post "modifications", and the phpBB Wiki which I have always found helpful.

As people have said, dive in. Also there are quite a few different sites around.

Most of the code is more self explanatory than I remember it being in 2.0, and it is easier to get the hang of, so it makes it easier to make MODs and changes.

And cherokee_red is correct. "EasyMOD" is now "AutoMOD". ;)
I do custom MODs. PM for a quote!
