HOW TO: Creating a primetime module (PART 1)
If you are like me and you just don't want to sit around and wait for someone to create a module you want, or you simply want to understand how this whole thing works, this article is for you. In this article, we discuss how to create a module for phpbb primetime and how that differs from a module for phpbb3. We also set the stage for creating a sample phpbb primetime module.

Creating a phpbb3 module
A typical phpbb3 module would have an info file that provides information such as the module's parent, class, mode, language variables, permission requirements, etc, and the module class that's executed when that module is called. A typical phpbb3 module's info file will look like this:
- Code: Select all
'filename' => 'acp_foo',
'title' => 'ACP_FOO',
'version' => '1.0.0',
'modes' => array(
'foo_mode' => array('title' => 'ACP_FOO_MODE_TITLE', 'auth' => 'acl_a_foo_auth', 'cat' => array('')),
- acp - module class
- filename - the php file to be executed
- title - title of the module
- version - the module version (not really used)
- modes - the module's modes
- title - the language variable representing the module modes' title
- auth - module modes' permission
- cat - the module modes' parent category
- Install/Uninstall functions - Not currently used in phpbb3
While a typical module's php main file (in this example acp_foo.php specified in the info file) will look like this:
- Code: Select all
function main($id, $mode)
// code here
$this->page_title = 'ACP_FOO';
$this->tpl_name = 'acp_foo';
- $this->page_title - the page title
- $this->tpl_name - the name of the template file used by the module
Note that a language file (holding the value of ACP_FOO, and ACP_FOO_MODE_TITLE variables), and a template file to display the module kept in styles/<style>/template/ folder. You can view a full tutorial on creating a phpbb module here.
