It is great the consumer, and I, can tweak/customize the Furls of any given app.
But there lies a huge problem with how it works now.
it being hard files, there stands no history, or management/redirection of these different furls.
Owner A: Installs IPB, Customizes some App Furls.
Updates, forgets about it.
the old urls 401.
he fixes it, the stock urls 401.
Owner B Uses IPContent explicitly and never touched the furlTemplates of any apps.
At this point, the Owner B is one happy camper, and Owner A is one sad goat.
Development-wise, the developer had better pray they have to never change the stock, or are extremely creative in redirecting the old FURL to the new.
There has to be a better way of handling App Furl Template Changes.... Even if by database storage with xml "templates"... something has to give here at some point.
And the above does not even begin to approach the conflicts possible ATM with no standardized management.

Bumping this, rather than 'There has to be a better way of handling App Furl Template Changes', making a detailed suggestion for 4.0, it *is* a large change:
Enable us to hook onto furlTemplates.
Both to modify stock templates maintenence-free, *and* allow addition to them as needed for additional front-end views hooked into x app.

Data hook right here:

 

 

require( IPS_ROOT_PATH . $path . '/extensions/furlTemplates.php' );/*noLibHook*/
    DATA-HOOK-HERE
    if ( is_array( $_SEOTEMPLATES ) && count( $_SEOTEMPLATES ) )
    {

 

Would be fantastic. - 3.4.2 Thankyou Please

 

I haven't actually checked to see if the hook system is available at this point, but if it is. Please add it :)
