Add-on dev blog/question mess - Usergroup Ranks


Well-known member
So I want to try my luck in developing an addon, and this is my first try - Usergroup Ranks.

My new forum's staff base come from vBulletin, and they're looking for a usergroup ranks system similar to the one found in vBulletin. I eventually stumbled upon User Ribbon Ranks, but it's not what I am really looking for... so I'm trying to make my own.

I am an addon dev that came from vBulletin. I know classes, objects and stuff but XenForo's MVC Structure looks really confusing, I'm still trying to understand what goes where. I'm learning from a lot of mods, specifically from Waindigo's.

My repo is at if anybody wants to look at my mess.. :p

My first question is... how do you make template edits in the code?

Edit: Nevermind, extended the wrong class. :p

I'm getting a 'Cannot load class using XFCP. Load the class using the correct loader first.' error when my code accesses a custom-written DataWriter. I have already set up the listener and everything else.

How do I fix this?
