Upgrading Mods to TNG V10.1

Ambox notice.png TNG 10.1 changed all MySQL to MySQLi queries and moved all SQL functions to a new tngconnect.php module.

All TNG Mods using MySQL queries are impacted by this changed.
The TNG 10.1 Mod Manager added a new directive the %wikipage: which allows all mods to be updated to provide the Wiki icon in the Mod List that links to the TNG Wiki article. The syntax was also tightened to make install and uninstall more fool proof. As a result some mods need to be updated to change the %triminsert or %trimreplace to use the simple %insert and %replace.
NOTE that Upgrading Mods to TNG V10.1 only identifies mods that were impacted by the TNG 10.1 Upgrade. See Mods for TNG v10 for a complete list of mods that are valid with TNG v10.

TNG 10.1.0



Impacted by SQL Query changes

19. MySQL: All MySQL-specific functions have been abstracted out of the code and placed in a single file called tngconnect.php. This should make it easier to adapt TNG to other databases if desired.
20. MySQL: Also, all "mysql_*" functions have been replaced with equivalent "mysqli_*" functions (the mysql_ functions have been deprecated in the most recent versions of PHP).
