Mods

Versions

A single mod can have multiple types of versions, represented by their version tag. The common use of this attribute is to make development/beta versions available, while distinguishing them from regular versions.

The download button shown on the info page always links to the latest untagged version, as it is assumed to be the default release. If there are no untagged versions (as might occur for a new, in-development mod), then the download button links to the latest version with any tag.

If you don’t need this feature, you don’t need to fill in the tag field.

Note: once you create a version, it can’t be edited. If you made a mistake while making a version, just delete and recreate it.

BBCode formatting

To make it easier to format mod descriptions, we support a flavour of BBCode similar to Minecraft Forum’s.

Currently supported formatting tags:

Markdown formatting

We also support writing mod descriptions in Markdown. We use a flavour of Markdown similar to that of Github’s.
