    That depends on the hack, but probably not. You should ask at

      Generally: No
      Most Hacks (except the very trivial ones) will have to be ported.
      Furthermore, all 3.0 Hacks (except phpinclude-stuff) require File Edits, while most 3.5 Hacks are Plugins.

        Usually when you upgrade you have to manually edit all of your hacks to get them to work. CHances are unless you are a code guru that ain't gonna happen. What I did, and I had probably 30+ hacks, is tell my users we were upgrading and we would loose some functionality but in the long run it would be better. Wiped my board. Fresh installed 3.5, imported the database of users, posts, etc. and started looking for the same 3.0.X hacks that had been ported to 3.5.

        While some hacks haven't been release since the authors are waiting for 3.5 gold or they haven't gotten around to re-releasing them, most of the hacks I had have been released in one form or another.

        I am just abiding my time waiting and in the mean time I am installing new hacks to make up for the loss of the old ones so my users stay happy. Granted I have a small users base with under 2-3000 posts. Someone with hundreds or thousands of users might not find that feasable.

        Oh well hope this helps some.
