View Full Version : Will you use theVB 3.5 hooks and plugin system ?

Gallery doesn't require any file edits anyway. ;) (There's one optional one that just groups the Templates together, and that can be done with a small plugin if you like. It's been posted here on the site somewhere.)

What type of better integration did you have in mind?

Those are template edits and can't be done via plugin anyway. You'd still have to make those template edits.

Plugins allow for hacks to be installed without having to modify PHP code. Template changes still have to be made manually.

It does, since you don't have to re-do all the PHP file edits.

Template changes aren't overwritten when you upgrade. When changes to templates are required, those changes are noted with the vBulletin release information, so you can see if you need to update any of your modified templates.

You should continue this discussion on vbulletin.com... Lots of info there.
