Before I mess up functions.inc.php
« on: March 20, 2011, 11:56:04 pm »

Hey Folks

I've been reading over the forum for some information, and find conflicting advice. Mostly, I find comments saying never to tweak the include/functions.inc.php file .. yet for some of the edits I need to make, I have found a few times solutions require this. here, for example/

I don't particularly mind either way, I just want to make sure if I do follow those solutions, I'm not messing up something I shouldn't mess up. What is the best approach here, given I don't know much about this php stuff at all.

Thank you.

Cheers

Carl

If you need to modify it, do it. But you have to apply those modifications after each update, that's why we suggest to alter only your theme or use the plugin engine if possible.

Hey André

Ahh, OK .. so it's OK to edit it, just make sure to include those edits in future upgrades. Cool.

Thank you again.
