Creating a Simple MOD: A New BBCode Tag

One of the best ways to learn is through hands-on experience, so now it is time for you to create your very first phpBB modification. As you follow along in this section, you will progress through the entire process of creating modifications. Since this is your first modification, the focus will be on adding a simple but useful new feature: a new BBCode tag. Modifications of this type have been in development since the very early releases of phpBB. You will follow the same process that has traditionally been used to create many BBCode tags over the years. If you downloaded this modification from a website, it would be just a single file of instructions, without any extra files or database alterations.
