Purpose of the Mod

To make the detailed Mod Status list in the Mod Manager more useful, by

  1. Highlighting %target directives,
  2. Changing the wrapping of %copy directives,
  3. Adding the location number to each target location entry in the list,
  4. Adding a "Detailed Status" action button for mods that are "Intalled" or "OK to Install". The details for such mods are hidden, since all target locations necessarily have the same status. But is is sometimes useful to see that list, so the "Detailed Status" button exposes the details.

Compatibility with other Mods

No known incompatibilities or dependencies on any other published mods. The only published mods that affect the mod manager are my mods.

Related Mods

This mod is compatible with my other Mod Manager mods: Mod Manager Compare, Mod Manager Filenames, Mod Manager Latest, and Mod Manager Note Tags. It coordinates with Mod Manager Compare in that Mod Manager Compare looks for the Author and Private tags defined by the this mod, but if Mod Manager Compare doesn't find them, nothing bad happens. Without those two tags, the Mod Compare Report simply (a) Look for the author name only in the Wiki article, and (b) can't note that a mod is Private.

To allow Copy directives to wrap in the middle of a filespec, the mod inserts zero-width spaces (​) before punctuation characters in the path and the filename.

BEFORE: Mods that are "Installed" or "Ok To Install", for which the location statuses are all the same

Revision History

Mod Version TNG Versions Date Note 10.1.0-11.1.2+ 22 Dec 2017 No changes to visible functionality. Removed an unnecessary line from cust_text.php target location search strings. 10.1.0-11.1+ 16 Jun 2017 Fixed a .cfg file bug that was found by Ron Krzmarzick. The mod installed and worked just fine, but there were too few spaces at the beginning of the first line of search text in a target location, so classes/modlist.class.php was not returned to its original state when the mod was Uninstalled. 10.1.0++ 16 Jun 2017 New mod - First production version
