XF 2.2 Changing an add-on name


Well-known member
Will changing the "title" in addon.json be enough?
Or I will have also to change the addon ID, folder name, namespaces etc?
Depends on what you're hoping to achieve. The title in the addon.json is the display name of the addon in the ACP, the addon ID is how the addon is referred to in code and using CLI commands. Changing the addon title can be done at will without any consequences, changing the add-on ID will break any backwards compatibility and cause a lot of issues with existing Installations, especially if the add-on stores data.
So it's ok to change "Thread Titles" to "Thread Titles Manager" in the title in addon.json only, and leaving it as it is in ID/namespace?
It will not violate or brake something?
