What is the Parse button for?

Vahid‎‎ ‎Damanafshan:
When hitting the Parse button in Mods pages , a new page (say, this) shows up. What is this page for?

NanoSector:
Hi again vdamanafshan.

That button is for showing the file edits made by the mod.
Say, an edit failed, on perhaps Subs.php, you can look it up and do it manually yourself that way :)

P.S. I moved your topic to Site Comments, as this is not an issue directly related to SMF as in the software but the site...you get what I mean.

You mean while installing a mod using Package Manager?

You mean I should open Subs.php myself and then change manually what is needed?

Yep, you got it!

Angelina Belle:
But I would not usually recommend you install a mod that way, especially not any of the larger ones.
Sometimes, it becomes necessary to handle one or two edits manually.
In SMF 2.0.2, package manager can also tell you about each of the required changes, while it is "testing" an install or uninstall.
