Full Version: How can I learn about MyBB $variables?

I have been trying to learn PHP & MySQL over the past few weeks, and have made a good start. However, when I come over to MyBB and look at the code, I can understand everything except the MyBB variables, therefore I have no idea what is going on in the code.

So my question is this: Is there a quick reference for MyBB $variables that shows us what each $variable defined in the MyBB source code does?
There is no official guide to list all variables and its use in MyBB... you can try this following method to fetch the variables... thats how i learnt...

define("IN_MYBB", 1);
include "global.php";
echo '<pre>';
echo '</pre>';
this will dump the entire $mybb object with all its settings, variables, etc.
You can do the same for $db, $lang, $config, $theme, etc.

You can however have a look at the various Plugin Hooks

And this external site also would be of some help...
