#37 mod_remove_footer from EasyMoblog


mod_remove_footer is an incredibly useful module that
strips off all post text after a predefined string. I
use it all the time, since Verizon (and many other
providers) put advertisements at the end of every
message sent through their network, and that junk would
in turn clutter up the moblog.

mod_remove_footer has been perfect for removing that,
but for whatever reason its functionality isn't present
in CoMoblog 1.0 (or it didn't install correctly, since
I updated from EasyMoblog 0.5 and the table rows
existed already)

Anyway, the module works correctly in CoMoblog with
slight modification. All I had to do was fudge the
version numbers in install/mod_remove_footer.xml (and
the database, but only because I had upgraded instead
of installing fresh).

    Hi there.

    So what exactly didn't function if you didn't manually alter the install.xml and
    DB for this module ? CoMoblog should be able to use EasyMoblog modules
    without this modification - it's just they will be mark as "uncertified".

    I just tested a EasyMoblog 0.5.1 with mod_remove_footer installed upgrade to
    CoMoblog 1.0 and found it worked as expected. The upgrader informed me
    that the module had to be manually reinstalled and hence it was disabled. I
    then copied over the folder and went back into manage modules, the module
    info was upgraded and it appeared to work fine.

    Hmm... I was under the assumption that the "uncertified"
    message meant that the module wouldn't be functional. I
    guess I was mistaken on that one.

    Still, it would be nice to have this feature included with
    all the other modules in the CoMoblog core download.

    No, uncertified means that it just hasn't been tested with this CoMoblog version.
    I'll go through and reword the text to clarify that.

    I'll update an official 1.0 version of this module, there are around 10 or so I want
