To upload a modified version of a Module or System, you would need to do some slight changes to the files.
Everything talked about should be taken the same way. When we’re talking about
module.json, assume you can also do it to
To first start up, you would need a copy of the module. We recommend taking a backup of the original module too, before you delete the old version.
After this, go to
Select Data files to delete at My Foundry. Or in-foundry.
And delete the old module.
Now, for the new module.
If you don’t want the Bazaar to catch your upload and install the module from the bazaar directly, you would need to edit the Module version or name.
To do so, you would need to edit
module.json. You’ll find this inside the module folder.
Edit it with any notepad program. Here we’re going to use Notepad++.
Now you can either :
- Edit the
versionnumber of the module, adding
-customat the end for example, since this is a custom version of it. This will let the bazaar know not to use the cached version. Note however that if you click “Update All”, the module will be overwritten by the latest version from the Bazaar.
- Or, you can instead edit the “Name” and “Title” of the module, so it doesn’t get updated automatically and can live alongside the official module.
I recommend you to edit it to something recognizable - “Custom (module name) V(module Version)”
You’re done. The new module should have been uploaded correctly and can be used.
