Manual Install Instructions for SMF


This modification adds to Settings.php, an array with the forum's tables and modifies every query in the Sources dir to use it.
PRO: This simplifies down to a single line, changing the prefix for a table in order to share it with another forum in the db.
CON: Other mods depending on a query to find where to make a change, will most probably not work, since every query is different.

I know this mod is not required by most and those that do, will work less updating the other mods they want to install than they would changing all the queries to share tables, not to mention that even then, many mods will not install fine.

This is a major modification, so a lot of testing is needed to make sure it works right, that's why I didn't even version it 1.00. If you don't actually need this, but have a test forum or could setup one and could help me test, it'd be great.

Please let me know of any problems or lack of them. I hope someone finds this useful.
