Will most mods work properly, or should I wait for updated versions of them?

I use the default SMF theme.

Do you mean mods for 2.0 ??? Some will work but the majority have to be updated.

Basie

Yeah, I was just wondering  if there is a simple way to tell wether or not they are likely to work.

I guess I'll just have to do some trial-and-error tests.

You can safely bet right now that probably 85 % of the mods on the mod site will not work with the new beta. Especially if they have to make database changes.

Also, are any of those mods I mentioned (above) now default features?

Actually I believe membergroup color legend and Font and Size Dropdown are both in 2.0. The functionality may be slightly different, but as you can see on this posting screen, there is a dropdown for both font and size and at the bottom of the board index on this forum there is a membergroup legend.

Yes, Membergroup Color Legend and the font and size dropdown on the post form are both default

Please be patient with mod authors.

It may take weeks (OR months) before mods are updated to 2.0.  It isn't necessarily a quick thing to do.  And for those of us with alot of mods, it can take a bit.

So far only 1 of my mods is confirmed for 2.0 beta 3 public in the mod site.

I see that 2.0 has auto-embed flash as a default option, but claims it is a security risk. Wouldn't that make your hack a security risk too, or is it a different thing?

Bigguy

SMF 1.1.x had this feature as well. The warning is there to remind you that turning it on could pose a security risk.

I believe the way Karl does the mod is done in a way so that it doesn't pose any kind of threat to your forum.

Rather than my mod I think seek2501 is referring to that in 1.1.x flash is disabled by default. But its enabled in 2.x

I was replying off of this part:

QuoteWouldn't that make your hack a security risk too, or is it a different thing?

Which seems to be claiming your mod could be a security risk, which I don't think it is as far as I know.

oh well.  I blame tiredness ;)  Or on awaiting the release of 2.0 with eager anticipation. :P

The difference between my mod and flash bbcode is
- My mod doesn't require bbcode to work, just post a link to youtube and it converts it automatically into an embedded video. (easier/quicker for users)
- Only allows flash to be embedded from specific sites, not any flash, hosted anywhere (which reduces the security risks alot).

As karl got to above, the SMF flash option just enables the [flash] bbcode.  It does not auto-embed the flash links.

Mods will be updated in time. Give mod authors time to update their mods.
Though Charter Customizers and Teamies might have their mods ready. I know a few mods where approved that are 2.0 Beta 3 only.
