Dear Ravenites (Laughing),

I am wondering why various addon makers are not using the global variable $Version_Num for helping to make unniversal versions of their tools (i.e., to support say PHP-Nuke 6.5 - 7.6) with regards to the changes to the admin structure with 7.5+.

Would not the following bit of code work?

Code:


if($Version_Num < 7.5) {

do whatever;

} else {

do the other;

}


Since I have only been Nukin' for about 5 months, I may have missed old threads / discussions from long back that might have caused all the "majors" to not use this method. I just do not like letting module admin links to show up in the system admin section when they should be in the module admin section, so I am trying to avoid that method of making tools "unniversal".

Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated,
montego

There is no global variable $Version_Num that I am aware of. This is a column in the config table but it is not stored anywhere globally. Having clarified that Smile, this could help in some instances, for sure. Then again, if FB would pick a plan and stick to it ..... I mean, by the time you reach a 7.5 version, don't you think the foundation/structure would have stabilized? Especially from 7.4?

Raven, its called out in mainfile.php (granted, not a global, per se):

Code:
$Version_Num = $row['Version_Num'];


Would it be a viable option to use this variable since it is set in mainfile.php? Do you know if its set in mainfile.php will it be available in the links.php?

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious that others have already found to not work well with using this variable.

TIA,
montego

It will be available to any script that includes mainfile.php

Does anyone have an opinion or experience with the above?

TIA,

What exactly are you after as far as an experience or an opinion? As I said in my original reply, it is a test that could be used and could be helpful. What else are you needing?

Raven,

No problem here. It seemed like a too obvious solution for making "unniversal" versions and I didn't see Bob or yourself using it so I was thinking that maybe there was a very good reason why I would not want to use it.

You see, we hold you guys in such high regard that even the exclusion of something seems important! Laughing

worship

Regards,
montego
