SimplePortal 2.3.6 Released!
« on: October 09, 2014, 05:01:59 pm »
The SimplePortal Team is happy to announce the release of SimplePortal 2.3.6, code-named "Mist!" This release includes fixes for the bugs found in the 2.3.5 version, and the change of license to allow for open development of SimplePortal. As of this version and going forward, SimplePortal is licensed under the BSD License. Older versions of SimplePortal are still licensed under the Simple Machines License.

We urge all users to upgrade to SimplePortal 2.3.6 as soon as possible to take advantage of the bug fixes. A full list of changes for 2.3.6 can be found in the changelog.txt file within the SimplePortal package, but the major fixes are:
  • Updates and improvements to the built-in blocks.
  • Several security improvements.
  • Proper logging of portal activity.
  • Several fixes and improvements to the interface.
  • Styling options for board news block.
  • Fixes to shoutboxes module.
Unfortunately, there is no auto-upgrade option from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 due to the number of changes. So, if you are running 2.3.5 or an older version, you can upgrade by following these three steps. You shouldn't lose any data, but for safety, you should always back up before modifying your forum.
Finally, please do not use this topic for any support requests. You will get a much more prompt response by posting in Install and Upgrade board.

Thanks for all your support, and keep those bug reports and feature requests coming!
-The SimplePortal Team

For those who might be wondering about the language packages; there were no changes to language strings in 2.3.6 version, so the language packages for 2.3.5 can safely be used for 2.3.6 version as well.

Not really, for this particular version. However, we have been developing the new version of SimplePortal with new major features in another branch.

Good Work!

Great! ;D

Thanks for updating such an already great addition to SMF! Forgive the nOOb question I'm about to ask but,...
according to this part of your post:
Unfortunately, there is no auto-upgrade option from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 due to the number of changes. So, if you are running 2.3.5 or an older version, you can upgrade by following these three steps. You shouldn't lose any data, but for safety, you should always back up before modifying your forum.

My dilemma is:
when you uninstall using the package manager, it of course asks if you want to delete data pertaining to your SP package install etc.
There's also the fact that I have many themes that I included on the original install of 2.3.5. that were integrated into the original SP v 2.3.5 install.

I'm assuming I'll lose my block and other portal information for the layout of my site if I delete all the data, however do I want to install the new 2.3.6 both files AND data over the top of 2.3.5 database/data information? or do I need to just uninstall the files and keep the data before I install the 2.3.6 version again?

thanks for your help!

...Seal...

Hello and welcome to SimplePortal!

If you want to keep your blocks, pages, shoutboxes, etc. from older versions of SimplePortal (like 2.3.5) and upgrade to 2.3.6 version, this is what you should do:

1) Get a back-up of your files and database. (you probably won't need them, but just in case)
2) Uninstall the older version (like 2.3.5) making sure that "Remove all data associated with this modification." option is NOT checked.
3) Install 2.3.6 package.
4) Have fun!
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

For now I've just (almost) finished forum independent articles feature. I've also added a profiles module which currently includes permission profiles but will be extended to include display (visibility) and style profiles. There are a lot more features I'm hoping to add but I may be a little ambitious this time, so I don't really want to talk much about those before I actually finish coding them.
