MyBB Documentation

Editing Plugin Compatibility

The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

To edit a plugin's compatibility, open up the plugin's main file (in inc/plugins). For example, if you are editing the default MyBB Hello World plugin, it the plugin filename would be inc/plugins/hello.php.

Go into the plugin and look around for a line that looks like this:

		"compatibility" => "14*"

Replace it with

		"compatibility" => "*"

While this will allow you to activate the plugin, it is not guaranteed the plugin will work with MyBB 1.6. Some functions it calls may no longer be in use, or it may not work for other reasons.
