Title: SimplePortal 2.3.5 Released!
Post by: [SiNaN] on March 27, 2012, 09:36:29 AM
The SimplePortal Team is happy to announce the release of SimplePortal 2.3.5, code-named "Railgun!" This release includes fixes for the bugs found in the 2.3.4 version, and features full SMF 2.0.2 and 1.1.16 compatibility.

We urge all users to upgrade to SimplePortal 2.3.5 as soon as possible to take advantage of the bug fixes. A full list of changes for 2.3.5 can be found in the changelog.txt file within the SimplePortal package, but the major fixes are:
Unfortunately, there is no auto-upgrade option from 2.3.4 to 2.3.5 due to the number of changes. So, if you are running 2.3.4 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 (http://simpleportal.net/index.php?board=54.0) board.

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

I wanted to test a bit more but not much time... and no bugs reported?  :)

I guess its Murphy's Law anyway ... someone will report a bug just after its released stable.

Apologies, but I've gone blank...

Will uninstalling/re-installing lose our blocks, or will they be retained in the database?

The "data" here includes your blocks:

Another quick question...

I have SimplePortal showing twice in my Package Manager list, one for 2.3.3 and one for 2.3.4. (See attachment.)

2.3.4 has an uninstall opion, while 2.3.3 has only a delete option.

Do I need to remove both of these before installing 2.3.5?

Please use the appropriate board for support questions.

Beforte installing 2.3.4 the previous version shoulda been uninstalled.

Shoutbox is working properly - but you have to add the database to change the encoding language. Errors in the event I can not see.

I'm ready to try it out... 8)

I'll update NGS with it tomorrow and see how it works...

Just a note that I've seen in the past with any package.

Uninstall the Package before you delete it...

If, You delete the package before uninstalling it, the same old package will show up on your database.

You can go into your C-Panel and see this.

Do i need Pro Hosting to Upgrade SMF? Cause I don't know how to Upgrade  :O
Title: Re: SimplePortal 2.3.5 Released!
Post by: phantomm on July 08, 2012, 10:12:32 AM
you need hosting that allows you to install mods, few popular free SMF host don't allow that.

Besides that, this isn't support topic, if you have any questions about hosting ask here: http://simpleportal.net/index.php?board=17.0 (or if you have problems with installing post here http://simpleportal.net/index.php?board=54.0 ).

I hate myself for ever having tried other solutions such as tinyportal, ezportal etc on some of my forums.

SimplePortal I f****in' love you for simplicity and even perfection. My sites that run SimplePortal have no issues at all.

huzzah.. finally got around to updating..

I wont tell you how much fun I had.. Actually.. I will..

Because my SP has been tampered with endlessly like changing codes for calendar, and my site usings pngs as post icons not gifs and a whole host of other things, plus added to that that my forum is extensively modified and recoded, 2.3.4 refused to uninstall.. and upgrading was not an option..

Just had great fun individiually recoding each file one by one with the updates whilst keeping in place my edits, and then going through the core file changes and editeding them one by one.. :D

Hurrah for Examdiff and notepad++

All worked though.. happily onto 2.3.5 :D

Post by: AngelinaBelle on January 31, 2013, 08:57:36 AM
Congratulations to you.

May I make a suggestion?  Package your edits as -- packages.  Then, you can install/uninstall these changes at will, whenever you want.
Title: Re: SimplePortal 2.3.5 Released!
Post by: velorooms on January 31, 2013, 11:24:02 AM
yeh, I redid the install package for the changes to the core smf files.
the sp files i just updated each of the new files with my various edits and saved them.

one of the great things about smf is how easy it is to edit. one of the worst things about smf is how easy it is to edit. Im dreading 2.1

To install SMF themes you need to see SMF documentation. Install from SMF theme menu in the Admin panel - for details, have a look on the SMF site:
