Upgrading Mods to TNG V8
NOTE that this page is for migrating mods from a previous version of TNG. See Mods for TNG v8 for mods that are valid with TNG v8.
Mods eliminated by TNG V8
The following mods are now obsolete (or potentially so) in TNG V8:
- Admin Header Mod and Admin Header Mod/de by Ken Roy is now an integral part of TNG V8
- Admin Frame Mod by Roger Clist is now integral part of TNG V8
- Image Viewer Mod and Image Viewer Mod/de by Bret Rumsey is now an integral part of TNG V8
- Mod Manager by Brian McFadyen is now an integral part of TNG V8
- Surname First Mod by Brian McFadyen is now replaced with Surnames First (with commas) option in Admin >> Setup >> General Settings >> Names >> Name Order
- New Account Form Mod might no longer be needed now that Darrin has changed the $text['comments'] variable to $text['acctcomments'] which might allow you to specify what users need to enter in the Notes field using the normal custom text overrides in cust_text.php without having to install the mod.
