!motd and !donate?
« on: May 05, 2012, 10:41:31 PM »
I'm thinking of designing a donate page that works the same way as !motd but instead of !motd it would be !donate, when doing this would I just go to the file
\ulx\lua\ulx\modules\sh and look at "menus" or go to

\ulx\lua\ulx\modules\cl and look at motdmenu... or both of these files?

Both of those files are used for the motd. The shared module is sending the data to the player, the client module is displaying it.

Okay, so for creating a !donate module I would need to mimic the directories but put them within addons?

Mimic directories.
Make new functions/variables.
Though technically you could keep/mimic same file names, I wouldn't, just to ensure they are easy to tell apart when looking at paths.
