Important info for developers - Diogo Parrinha - 09-08-2014

Plugin files

Plugin files must go in inc/plugins/newpoints


Language files
Language files should go in inc/plugins/newpoints/languages/LANGUAGENAME/
(if it's an admin language file, should go under inc/plugins/newpoints/languages/LANGUAGENAME/admin)

To load a language file, run this function:
PHP Code:
newpoints_lang_load("plugincodename"); 


Add option to menu
If you want to add an option to the menu in the NewPoints page, make sure you hook to 'newpoints_default_menu' and use the function you want to be used, like this:
PHP Code:
function plugincodename_menu(&$menu)
{
    global $mybb$lang;
    newpoints_lang_load("plugincodename");
    
    if 
($mybb->input['action'] == 'plugincodename')
        $menu[] = "&raquo; <a href=\"{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/newpoints.php?action=plugincodename\">".$lang->plugincodename."</a>";
    else
        $menu
[] = "<a href=\"{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/newpoints.php?action=plugincodename\">".$lang->plugincodename."</a>";
