[SOLVED] Copying and cloning a module - is this all I need to do?


Recommended Posts

I want to create a second Links menu / module. It seems straight forward enough but I just want to make sure that I'm not missing anything:

Step 1) Copy the files, give the module folder a new name

Step 2) Change the module display name in the .php file, via the code below:

$this->displayName = $this->l('NEW NAME HERE');

Step 3) Change the module name in the .php file, via the code below:

$this->name = 'NEW NAME HERE';

Step 4) Do a find / replace all for the new name created in Step 3

Is this all I need to do? Am I correct to assume that the filenames don't need to be changed (both the .tpl or .php)?
