Extension system?

Post by Lucas Malor »

Hello. phpBB will ever have an extension system?

PunBB 1.3 beta has an extension system (they call them "hooks"). You can look at it, because it's a GPL software:

Ok, I thought it was not already present, because in the compare page "Automatic MOD Installer" is signalled as not available:

Does it means another feature I don't know?

Automatic mod installation has nothing to do with a 'hooks' system. The hook system will allow other software to be hooked/integrated into/with phpBB. An automatic mod installer is being developed currently which will be the phpBB3 version of easymod :)

I understand. It's good for admins that doesn't have FTP rights. Thank you all for answering :-)

phpBB has a Module system which allows the automatic installation of modules. These are limited to certain places, like the acp, mcp and the ucp; as well as search, authentication and caching. Then there is a hook system for external extensions.
Moreover, the style system is in itself more powerful than most contenders.

So: yes, phpBB3 has an automatic extension system. More than one. The thing being worked on is the automated installation of core changes, which aren't needed for many common modification requests.
