Vanillla 2.1 beta 3

LincLinc Director of DevelopmentDetroit Vanilla Staff
edited April 2014 in Releases


  1. This is BETA. We don't recommend its use in production
  2. It will be a fast & possibly final beta. Get your testing in soon.
  3. Open bugs against the beta on GitHub by prefixing the title with: [2.1]
  4. Upgrading from the 2.0 branch involves an extra step.


  1. Copy your /conf/config.php off the server as a backup
  2. Backup your database
  3. Delete the /themes/mobile folder from your current installation
  4. Copy the new copy (2.1) over your old install
  5. Delete any .ini files in /cache
  6. Go to /utility/update (or to /index.php?p=/utility/update if that doesn't work)
  7. If that Fails, refresh the page to do it again. On larger sites it may take a while and/or require multiple passes.
  8. Please report any difficulty with this process here in this discussion.


Follow the steps above; you can skip step 3 (deleting the mobile folder).


  1. We are deprecating the cleditor plugin for 2.1 and it will be removed in future versions. A new, improved WYSIWYG editor will be release shortly.
  2. We are deprecating the Embed plugin for 2.1 and it will be removed in future versions. Embed is now core functionality. Please disable your plugin and reconfigure your embedded sites using the new code.
  3. We made some significant architecture changes from 2.0 to 2.1, especially in theme views & addon hooks. Please carefully test your existing plugins & themes before upgrading any live site.
