Not sure where to put this, sooo...

When I submit my profile page (updating password), I get a blank screen and the password doesn't get updated.

IE9 and Firefox 17

We had a bug in /languages/english/changebasic.php which prevented the users from updating their profile.

We have updated the file, if you were one of the first to install 7.57, please download the .zip again and just replace that one file.

thanks...

Looks great, I'm glad to see things moving forward!

The only problem that I see is that the CP is a huge step backwards, it was clean and elegant before, now it looks ugly and drab...

Can't find custom.css as referred to in upgrade notes.
(Should it be common.css?)

Okay, uploaded all the files/folders in the update package and ran the "install.php" file as has been typical of past upgrades. The result was BORKED FORUM.... it appears it has overwritten nearly everything including any and all settings. All of my previous Styles don't work, etc., etc., etc..... It's as if I installed a new forum and not an upgrade/update. At least the posts (database) wasn't wiped too.

So, the question is.... What do I do now? Can I upload my forum backup files and revert back to 7.5.6p2? Or, is there an easier fix.

Hi Pilgrim,
I doubt there's much you can do about that except revert to a backup.

I suspect it should be a little more clear that existing users need to use upgrade.php and not INSTALL.html.

(Or at least add this option to INSTALL.html)

Upload all files and directories from the unzipped UBB directory to the UBB installation directory, except for the:
  • includes
  • styles and
  • cache_builders/custom
directories.

Also copy over install/styles/admin.css and install/styles/common.css

Then...

Bring up the "install/upgrade.php" script with your web browser.

Stop Forum Spam...

I signed up and got an API key.

Very carefully pasted/ inserted the key.

Nothing seems to be happening. When I 'Test connectivity', I get a blank alert box.

I can't find either of the files ("styles/custom.css" and "styles/admin.css") mentioned in the upgrade notes in the "ubbthreads-7-5-7\install\styles\" directory. I only have "1.txt", "2.txt", "3.txt", "4.txt", "5.txt" in mine.

As a result, I've aborted the upgrade and reverted back to the previous version. Did anyone else find this to be the case? Are these files supposed to be generated as a result of the upgrade?

Worked perfect for me. I manualy uploaded (only) the changed files to my server and then runned the upgrade. Everything is working fine now. Stop-forum-spam is also working as it should.

I had admin.css and common.css in mine.

I didn't upload the common.css file as the notes said it should be custom.css

However, during the upgrade procedure, the common.css file was called for - so I just uploaded it at that time.

Ah - I think I see what you've done now.

The necessary files are in the styles folder - not the install/styles folder.

Thanks! You're right. I assumed that because the instructions said from the install directory, they meant from the install directory, not from the install package.

I'll go ahead with my upgrade now then.

I'm doing a line-by-line manual install and find a small, but nice bit of code cleaning had been done in 7.5.7.

Most of the "//end if" comments have been removed, but there are still quite a few "// end while" and "// end for" comments remaining (intentional? quite possibly.)

I've noticed an inconsistency in the scripts as...
"defined( 'UBB_MAIN_PROGRAM' ) or exit;"
vs
"if(!defined("UBB_MAIN_PROGRAM")) exit;"


I've also noticed that while this is 7.5.7 and not the 7.6 which SD was working on through March 2012, his CSS updates were not included?

And most visibly, where SD's comment of the following code was...
Code
{*
  Version: 7.6
  Purpose: New user registration
  Future:
*}

now only reads as...
Code
{* Script Version 7.5.7 *} 

Also, I didnt notice SD's inclusion of Nivo Slider (for the portal), as mentioned in his 7.6 upgrade discussion... but then again, this is a 7.5.7 upgrade, not 7.6.

As far as I could tell, Smarty-2.6.19 is still being used in 7.5.7. Since upgrading my 7.5.6 install to Smarty-2.6.27 last year, my site seems to perform searches much more quicly.

After four hours, I am currently about 60% through my manual upgrade. I'll post more of my observations if more comes up.

Nice work and I am very happy to see a new version released - thanks!

THANKS!! I uploaded the directories/files from 5.7.6p2, which I had in backup that you said should NOT have been upgraded from 5.7.7, and launched the "upgrade.php" utility. All is now working fine. [Linked Image from the-highway.com]

Groupee used to do this, I believe it was condensed to one file to aid in having to manage multiple files... I always liked having two releases personally.

This issue has only affected me here, I have several installs and utilize threads on multiple servers and have never experienced the issue elsewhere...

I think it's a typo for common.css

A manual 7.5.7 upgrade from a very customized UBBThreads 7.5.6 was quite easy.

I just unzipped the original 7.5.6 & 7.5.7 archives in to their own directories on a local computer. Then compared each directory/file in Beyond Compare to view the difference. Then, in another window, I modified my customized UBBThreads files with the differences. Next, I tested out my work on a local sandboxed server. Lastly, I read through any txt files in the install directory to see if I was missing anything or if there were database changes that needed to be done -- finding no "altertable" file for 7.5.6, there was no database mucking around to be done smile

This upgrade was quite simple and straight forward as usual.

I just did another 2 upgrades on some highly customized forums, using BeyondCompare to hash the changes; worked without a hitch...

I'm pretty sure it's just file changes between 7.5.6 and 7.5.7 as I didn't find an altertable (one forum I upgrade has a load balancer on the server, so everything must be done manually).

Balances the load caused by traffic on the server over multiple servers; it's pretty annoying, and I have no idea how they have it setup...

Oh, all instances for "full_url" and "base_url" have to be updated to work with the load balancer in question.

I'm not sure how other options work; personally I think I'd rather have MySQL on a separate machine than to balance everything between two servers...

I am used to having MySQL on a different box, but now that you mention it... I haven't checked with this new host.

Actually, I thought it was only the http side of things that was load balanced. (Rather a naive consideration!)

I'll check tomorrow. Thanks Giz.
