Ahhh.... thanks!

The thing is people should do that work themselves, they might have their own MODs applied to their system.

That's why documentation is so important. Smile

you just include the precompiled files in a contrib directory, can you think to do an php script wich automatically copy files from phpbb path and compile mod?
this should actived by admin control panel like a compile cache:
"compile mx_forum"
another page in acp can be an page to set the page of forum_pages.php
someone like an upgrade script of phpbb Wink
sorry for my horrible english
they are only suggest but you see....

hmmm... If such contrib folder is distributed, then the mx_forum user is loosing an oportunity to learn the "method".

As I see it now, the mx_forum user should learn how to do the job ASAP, just to be ready when he/she needs to do it after applying any MOD to his/her phpBB installation.

I believe, this is something to take into account if some day in the future the conversion process could be automated.

I'm not sure if all the process can be automated, yet. Everyone has modified phpBB to its own needs... lots of variables here! ...Before thinking in automation, I would like to get more experience with more people using this module.

Yeah, I was thinking in this option too. Maybe I'll add this one of these days.

But, I'm still researching how to make all phpBB Scripts become Portal Blocks. Still Pending: groupcp, modcp, profile...

No problem. Wink

Thanks for the feedback, selven. Smile

Do you mean something like the mx_forum tutorial in text format for offline reading?

Question

Don't worry, next time, you'll do it faster. Smile

Ok, catched. I'll see what can be done here. No promises, though. As I said, I would like to wait to see what happens on other system (that means more beta testers) ...to see which level of automation could be achieved.

Another problem is find the time to do it....

the first step can be to compile an tutorial in phpBB template, wichall the modific on all the file
in this mode the compilation is "automaticable" with easymod for example
step1
first txt
copy all files in mx_forum directory
step 2
done all the code change
step 3
move mx_forum directory into $mx_root_path.'modules'

I don't like the idea of using EM to do the mx_forum conversion at at phpBB folder, then copy the result files to modules/mx_forum, then restore phpBB files again to its phpBB folder.

EM tries to keep track of all changes you do to your phpBB installation and that seems something to fool EM a bit...

Imagine a future version of EM adds an Uninstall MOD feature?

And EM, as it is implemented today, it can only apply changes to files under the phpBB folder.

A possibility is to get EM and modify it for MX-System. That's something to think of... however, I believe that's a big project. EM is heavy!
