In onlyMinter(), there is a line with only _;. I'm having troubles adding a minter address, so I'm just checking the various contracts that go into ERC721. The function is

modifier onlyMinter() {

What does _; do? Is it an error?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Modifier code is merged with the modified function. _ is the wildcard that tells the compiler where to put the function code relative to the modifier code.

Have a look over here for explanation, examples: Using a modifier as a function in Solidity

Hope it helps.
