Vanillla 2.1 beta 3

LincLinc Director of DevelopmentDetroit Vanilla Staff
edited April 2014 in Releases

IMPORTANT

  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.

TO UPGRADE FROM 2.0.X

  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.

TO UPGRADE FROM A 2.1 BETA (1 or 2)

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

DEPRECATION & COMPATIBILITY WARNINGS

  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.

    No doubt I'm being daft, but what's the URL to download beta 3?

    edit The github download I guess: snip ? Or does it get packaged up differently?

  • Nice one, thanks for the link. To anyone else, use that link, not the one from github I posted above (sorry, I can't edit it now).

    Regarding the update - step 6:

    Go to /utility/update (or to /index.php?p=/utility/update if that doesn't work)

    That doesn't work for me when upgrading from a 2.0.18 forum. I've got everything in place (I think), but it does an immediate redirect to /index.php?p=/dashboard/setup (an http Location redirect if that is relevant at all). I've got debug enabled, but there is no content from the update page - it just does the redirect.

    What would be causing that?

    Thanks,
    Allan

  • Got it now - what was tripping me up was that my config file didn't have the Installed flag. That dropped it into the installation screen instead of the upgrade which is fair enough! The reason I didn't have the installed flag was that I was getting an error using my old config file, so I cleaned out a bunch of stuff (too much in the end!). The specific line that was causing the error was:

    $Configuration['Garden']['Errors']['MasterView'] = 'error.master.php';
    

    Removing that allows the upgrade to run.

    It was me being daft; added the download link to my post.

  • Installing on localhost gives me this.

  • hgtonighthgtonight ∞ · New Moderator

    @LucasKA That looks like an error related to MySQL being in strict mode. Vanilla does not support strict mode. I believe there is a patch out there that does it on github: https://github.com/vanillaforums/Garden/pull/1799

  • Hmm, never had that issue on 2.0.x

    That patch worked, should probably be merged if it passes other tests/etc :smile:

  • After upgrade to 2.1b3 I have revealed some bugs:

    1.In user profile the Active text area toolbar is right justified and out of toolbar box.

    Example:

    toolbar.jpeg

    2.In account option there are two dashboard links.

    Example:

    dashboard.jpeg

    3.Doesn't work dashboard statistic. It doesn't show.

    4.After change user data window doesn't close, but changed user data saved.

    Thanks!

  • UnderDogUnderDog Moderator

    @Ivan_Gurin post them on gitHub please.

    For every item a separate bug report. In the bug reports more info. 1) + 2) Is it default theme or other theme? Which one? 3) Statistics don't show. Any FireFox / FireBug / Chrome Javascript explorer details? 4) After change what user data? Step by Step please?

    There was a Javascript error in the Dashboard in 2.1b3 that caused at least 6 bugs. I commented about it in this issue: https://github.com/vanillaforums/Garden/issues/1833

  • LincLinc Director of Development Detroit Vanilla Staff

    @Ivan_Gurin Thanks for the reports! I've filed 1, 2 is fixed, 3 sounds like you have third-party cookies blocked perhaps (it causes the graph to not work in Safari especially), and I think 4 was probably related to the JS bug in my last post. If not, please open a GitHub issue for it and I'll take a closer look. Thanks again!

  • @Lincoln, thanks!

    Your fix solved 3, 4 items from my list.

  • LincLinc Director of Development Detroit Vanilla Staff

    Awesome, glad to hear.

  • After following everything nothing shows up. I'm on localhost. Please help

  • hgtonighthgtonight ∞ · New Moderator

    @gohunter Completely white page? Upgrade from 2.0.x or fresh install? Enable debugging (add $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; to your /conf/config.php file) and report any errors.

  • @hgtonight‌, @peregrine‌;

    Thanks for the tip and found out there was some issue in my localhost. It was not pulling out the right database.

    Changed my directory and it works fine.

    Thanks for the link to http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/comment/199091/#Comment_199091 it is really useful and will guide me in my future posts.

    I'm kind of new to whole php and vanilla forum, and trying my best to learn it in short period of time.

    Appreciate you all!
