Version: 1.0

This miniaddon i've coded last night, for another hack i'm currently working on, but then i thought it might be usefull for quite more users so i release it seperatly.

What it does?
It's a small script you have to run from your Admin-CP. You can enter a filename of a *.tpl-file (Template file formate by me ) and it'll add the Template to the global template set.
As you can see this can be very usefull if you have a lot of template sets and want to add a new hack which comes a long with much templates....

If the template already exists, it'll ask you if the new one should overwrite the old.

Because the Addon adds templates to the global set, you have to rerun it with every template file again after you've done an upgrade.

Personally i made it just for installing new templates that comes within a new hack, it has nothing to do with a backupsystem. If you want to export templates and import them again later you should use this hack by FireFly.

I don't think i would add something to the hack, but feel free to make suggestions

Zipfile contains:
tplimporter.php - the script (upload it to your admin folder)
tplimporter.txt - installation textfile and *.tpl file description
test.tpl - a *.tpl file so you can see how they should look

Enjoy

Where is everyone today? Xenon makes a hack hours ago, and nobody has replied yet? What is the world coming to!?!?!? =falls over=

Anyway, this hack looks really neat Xenon, although I don't think I'll ever be using anytime soon. *clicks install anyway*

Thank you Xenon - Ive got 6 template sets on my site and several hacks to install (each with several new templates to add) - this is gonna save me a LOT of time. You are a GOD! lol

[edit]

after reading up on this..
The .tpl scheme is fairly easy to work with, but is it possible to use the "new template" style system, where one can simply type in the template name in one box, then the contents of the template into the 2nd box & finally hit a submit button?

The way you have it setup right now will still save quite a bit of time, however, it still takes the time to create a new .tpl file, then read it into the page. Having the 2 box and submit button would save even more time if you install hacks that come with the template data in text files (example: copy & paste title then copy and paste body, then save, etc etc) (like shoutbox, quick reply, tutorial hack).

Just an idea
