MOD's ??

Post by wingnut144 »

I know its early, but it seems that some people have already released mods in the MODx format? I thought this was suppose to reduce the amount of manual coding in individual files that admins had to do to install these programs.

Where in the ACP are these added, and how is it done? :?: :)

MODX is just XML format for the MOD format. It in itself does not reduce workload on manual install. phpBB3 structure makes stuff easier to do with less edits.

MODX and ACP are not related. Modules can be part of a MODification released with MODX, but not all MODifications will have modules.

Hope that helps you some.

It should have a .xml and .xsl file. So open the xml with your browser and you should get the instructions... if the MOD author has done it correct :lol:
