About Tiki Packages in Tiki 18.0 LTS and why I support this project. And mods.tiki.org can now be scheduled for retirement (Marc Laporte).
The Mods feature was introduced in Tiki 1.9 as a tool to distribute, install, upgrade and remove Tiki components with LGPL incompatible licenses which didn't allow them to be included as part of the Tiki release package. A Mod can be a feature, plugin, module, theme, language file, replacement for an existing feature, or a combination of these. However, this feature is now deprecated in favor of Packages and, as of Tiki 19, it is completely obsolete, as all mods-related code has been removed in this version. Towards the end of life of the Mods feature, it has been used only for aftermarket visual themes and PluginR.

- maintenance of locally stored mods : comparison with remote, downloading of new versions
- installation of local mods, upgrade and removal
The admin mods interface can be found in tiki-mods.php, provided that you log in as admin.
See Mods User for more information on how to install mods easily through the tiki-mods.php admin interface, and Mods Admin if you need manual install of mods, and further customizations.
