Should Forumotion offer installation of MODs in control panel?

Post by neukrotiva on November 15th 2009, 9:56 am

First topic message reminder :

Dear Forumotion staff,

I was wondering whether it is possible to install phpbb modifications (MODs) on Forumotion hosted forum? If not, is such feature planned in near future?

Forumotion DOES create its own MODs, in a way - the whole system is modified from the original phpbb software. That is how we have advanced profile and such. The techs have to install these based on demand from the suggestions. There is no way we can install our own. And for the record, MODs are NOT easy to create as someone said earlier. It takes a lot of time and patience to make them, test them, and ensure they are compatiable with previous modifications.

So for all of those reasons, my vote is a resounding no Smile.

It's possible, other forum hosts has this feature.

Then you must be thinking of SMF based forum hosts.

Yes

They should be able to send all users on this forum an update or something of what mods will be and the ones they have out.

I'm not sure. The whole concept of FM was not to enable MODs...

I vote yes, but you won't be able to use the phpbb mods. Forumotion would have to make their own mods and installation system.

i think it would be better and would not limit the creativity of an admin.. so i say yes.. the question is, is this seen by the whole forumotion team as a real suggestion?

On the french site moderators ctegorically refuse, ...

What guarantees a success here? (As DBs seem to belong to FM.)
