Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Upgrade to 2.6 - cannot enable Advanced Editor plugin

I was successfully able to upgrade my forum from 2.3.1 to 2.6 with some effort.

Repeatable steps to get error message:

I have the Baseline theme enabled.
I have no plugins enabled.
When I try to enable the Advanced Editor plugin (ver 1.8.1) I get this error message:

"Incorrect datetime value: '0000-00-00 00:00:00' for column 'DateInserted' at row 1"

I have $Configuration['Garden']['Debug'] = true; set in my config file.

Any help to address this is most appreciated.

    Sounds as if you run MySql in strict mode. You have to turn strict mode off for Vanilla

  • I am noticing a lot of instances here in the forum directing users to turn off strict mode. Am I correct in saying this is skirting the larger issue of invalid data - would it not be preferable to check data before attempting to insert into the db?
