Except for my lack of talent, what could be the reason I need to reinstall my add-on after every XF upgrade?
This one. It's supposed to modify a drop-down menu (the one on this page), but it doesn't do that after XF upgrades. (It happened with 1.1.5 and 1.2 RC4, which are the only ones I've tested, I think.)Which add-on?
What about it no longer works after upgrading each time?
Thanks muchly for this. However, there doesn't appear to be any hooks in the watch_threads_all template ... What can I do then?Your watch_threads_all template is being overwritten during upgrades which is exactly the expected behavior. To modify core templates, you don't just overwrite them in your add-on.
You're supposed to use template hooks or similar to inject your changes into the existing template.
Ah, thank you Brogan. The template hooks were giving me a headache (fairly lengthy tutorials etc), and I suspect this will be much easier. (I've briefly used the TMS add-on in the past, and this looks similar.)Hooks are no longer required in 1.2 with the TM system.
