A modification (also called "mod" or "package") is a new or enhancing package for SMF forums. Mods are created with PHP (PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor and/or HTML (HyperText Markup Language)(can include JavaScript and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)), and can be installed using SMF's package manager.

What is the package manager?

The package manager is a tool integrated into SMF to install the custom modifications made by users. The package manager opens a ZIP/tar.gz/gz file opened, looks for installation instructions (most commonly used is XML (Extensible Markup Language) during installation and PHP for both MySQL and after installation) and reports what can be done and what not. In short: the package manager is a great tool to work with. It is the key to enhancing SMF with all of the desired features possible!

Can I, as user, also create modifications?

Of course! You, as user, can look at the ways of creating a modification (a.k.a package). The user can both create and host packages.
