Adding in the FAQ from 1.4.x
« on: April 11, 2011, 01:44:31 am »

Is it safe to use the FAQ from earlier versions of CPG with my 1.5.12 install? I know it means I need to modify the language file as well as adding in the faq.php and creating a link for it in the menu. Is there any reason this would be a problem? Obviously I'll go through the info and update it to fit anything that's changed since 1.4.x, but I really like the format of that FAQ. (I really wish the FAQ was still a built-in part of CPG.)

Since my site isn't officially live yet, I decided to test this out. It works just fine. But I'd still like to know if it poses any security risks or could cause any other problems. I noticed the coding in the 1.4.x english.php file is different from the 1.5.12 version, the former using array( for the FAQ section and the latter using $lang_filename_php[ throughout, but I don't know enough about PHP to convert one to the other and still maintain the format of the FAQ. Am I okay leaving it, or should I not?

I cannot see a security reason not to use the old faq.php file in cpg1.5.x.

You don't need to convert it.
