I don't believe there was an update to the threads importer...

Does it mean that the table schema is un-modified ?

None of the importers needed any adjusting for this version. There are changes to the various tables, but nothing that caused any issues with the importers.

Possible problem with gallery subforums and marking forums read. Some of my members have complained that, when they double-click the new posts icon on a forum to mark all posts read, the new post indicator doesn't always stay out. I have gallery-type subforums under many of my main forums, and it seems if there are new image posts in any of these gallery sub-forums, then the ONLY way to mark the parent forum as read and have it stay marked, is to first go into the Gallery sub-forum and open each new gallery post (double-clicking the cameral icon does not seem to work the way double clicking the new-post icon does. Is there a way for a future release to allow double-click of teh main forum new-post icon would mark all subforum posts as read also?

SOME people upload the libs/ubbthreads.inc.php and then install file; it SHOULD show any changed files...

I myself don't like this upgrade route; i believe this is covered in a faq entry in the faq forum.

Best method is always to upload all files - it is easy to merge any mods via a product such as Beyond Compare.

Then isn't there just an UPGRADE package ?

Have one for NEW install and one for UPGRADE if this is so confusing for so many users I'd think that would maybe cut down on the amount of upgrade issues.

We used to do this, but keep in mind two packages need to be maintained, which can get quite nasty if something "accidently" gets removed...

There are upgrade doc's in on the site and in the faq forum, it shouldn't be too hard to follow one of the methods displayed...

When i used classic i used to worry to hell at upgrade time?

In classic terms the upgrades were 6 months apart or so,
and by that time you had lost any confidence in upgrading
and began to search like crazy for any of youre own notes
about the last upgrade and what to do in your own words so to speak.

Since then,
ive got more involved and for me i am more confident with threads but still break it now and then lol...

The installer listing the files for upgrade really helps alot.
And helps prevent problems.

If i was to be pickky
i would like to see a standard txt file listing
the modified files, just as a heads up before running the installer, i think that could help alot of peeps wink

IMO

Please no....

I use a billing solution, and they have separate upgrades to the full package, which is only intended for new installs.

One of the biggest problems is having to upgrade each install in turn, and also think about any modifications that have been done.

Much easier to import the changes locally and then upload all files.

The only 'upgrade' version that might be an idea is one without the includes etc., so that critical files can not be overwritten.

that's what he's talking about; which i dislike, because then there could be "refreshes" for "accidently added files" (or removed); have seen it elsewhere with other products and it just causes more problems than what it's worth...

Ok - I thought he meant a 'usaual' upgrade version, which just contained the files that have been altered.

Good to see your bringing the sub forums into play
so you can appreciate some of the issue that you can have.

But seeing you fixed them problems its not a problem any more,
but still handy to have SUB 1 >> SUB 2 smile
