Handle customizations and automatic updates

(Paulo Vieira) #1

Quick question: suppose I want to make a small modification in lib/email/receiver.rb. I will do it directly in server. Will this affect the automatic updates of my discourse?

I mean, will the updates override my modifications? Or will the updates be possible at all?

If you want your modifications to stick between updates, your only option is to make them in a plugin. Otherwise, they’ll be overwritten every time you update.
