    I have changed 3 .php-files of the core XF-code in order to make my Forum a "Private Community".

    RecentActivity.php
    FindNew.php
    Members.php

    according to this:

    Question:

    What happens to those 3 .php-Files when I upgrade to the latest XF-version ?
    I am still running XF-version 1.1.1

    I am just wondering if those 3 Files will be updated automatically to the new XF-version when I upgrade the software ?

    How should I handle this properly ?


    Appreciate your advise!

    They will be overwritten.

    You will need to edit them again.

    I've done the same, a core edit to add GeoIP, as Brogan says this will be overwritten on upgrade. So I've just kept a copy of the file so I can compare the new and old versions and stick my code back in.

    This is always the problem with editing the actual files :)
