[forums] URGENT - READ! Updated to 2.0.20

Hello all,

I have updated the forums to php 2.0.20.  Unfortunately one of the mods has seriously borken something so we are currently running a seriously stripped down version without any advanced mods.

The forums will be up and down throughout the day and I would advise everyone not to post for the time being in case we have to restore the dbase!

best,

dtw

OK - I have now applied the 1st ten patches and all seems to be well.  Will try 11 to 20 next.

I have identified the faulty patch - the forum will be down until it can be fixed.

Apologies,

Ok - I can't fix the faulty patch so it has not been applied and nor have the subsequent patches - please be prepared for problems.

The dbase my need to be reverted later - you have been warned!

Re: [forums] URGENT - READ! Updated to 2.0.20

Hmmm - I don't know what to do.  I'm not sure how likely a fix for my problem is within the time I have to apply it.  I'm not sure if i should just give up on that patch and re-patch without it.  But that means receating a load of patches...

For some reason, the forums feel quite a bit faster today on my end.  Not sure if it's the upgrade making it feel that way, or it's just a good day for internet connections.  smile

The extra speed is nice whatever's causing it ... I do miss all those big "mark forums read" buttons, though.

lol sure we'll sort it in the end...

No news on the fixes.  Do you think I have "advertised" the problems enough?  Can anyone say " I never knew there was a problem!"?

@dtw upload the clean files (anyway Arch use default theme so no graphic loss) then apply what u can apply one by one (phpBB sucks like hell when it comes to mods it would have been better to use SMF :'( )

One new issue is that sometimes the Google advertisment opens in a popup window. When I close it the whole Firefox  gets closed. Hm.

Speaking of which, the so-called "relevant" ads in there are currently offering me surgery...


The suggestion box only accepts patches.

A)Modifiers
B)Modelo Especial
C)Moderators

gutted.  I removed the patch that was breaking stuff but obviously the bbcode has been broken somewhere.  Just have to fix that now too!  sad

This should be fixed now.  Quotes made during broken period will stay broken - edit and save post will update.  This problem was actually due to a cock up upstream - idiots

Ok - I think it should all be fixed now.  Fingers crossed.  I had to patch upstream issues for mysql5 too.  Ignore forum is no longer avialable.  Sorry, Dusty :'(
