some really newbie questions:

i copied and pasted a hack (haven't uploaded yet) do i include the // part of the code? i think those are comments but not sure

also do lines count ? in other words should there be any spaces between lines? (i.e.)

//comment here//
code starts here

//comment here//

code starts here

whitespace is normally ignored and anything with // or /* */ are comments and are ignored by the php processor.

Well I installed V3 Arcade and got a parse error as soon as I tried to post, or view a profile. Have to say reading through this has proved very helpful. I've been able to fix that error, and I feel a lot more comfortable about future edits.

Thanks - good info.

This is a must read far all noobs like me. I really enjoyed your article and I must say that most of us get too excited when we see an awesome hack and then rush the modding process. After 7 successful hacks, I just got my first parse error and that really flipped me out. Reverting the templates didn't work but I forgot to uninstall the plugins and then, boom, gone. I guess it pays to read threads like these.

Silly question probably but what are newbies for? :-) I am trying to add the new arcade and it is telling me to upload to chmod 0777 I think and I have no idea where to find that. I am getting a parse error when I click on arcade that is already on my forum. Also, I wasn't able to put it on all by different skins because some of the code I was needing to add to wasn't there like in the navbar.

chmod 0777 refers to the permissions on the files/folders. I'm not sure if vBulletin has something built in to allow you change that from the control panel (I'm fairly new at this also). Usually this would be done from having shell access to the site.

I have no idea about the parse error, unfortunately, so I can't comment on that... but hopefully that answers your first question.

Really Newbie Question. How do I import xml files from the server to vbulletin. Im trying to add the arcade hack to my forum, however, I am stuck at this crucial part. <---This arcade.

I am stuck at the part where it says, "Enter the path to the Product-XML-File: ./includes/xml/product-ibproarcade.xml". I have no idea what to do with this part. Can anyone help me?
