Will my members lose their inbox messages?

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I am doing an upgrade to the latest version and I do not have 1.1

Will anything be lost when I do this that I should take special care to back up? I've already backed up all the Vanilla files on the server.


  • I'd take a backup of your database just to be sure but no data should be lost.
  • ok I did it. it seems to all be intact. I went to the Updates & Reminders section where it lists all the possible upgrades for my extensions. The only problem I have is that my theme is black and this displays the listings in a bright background. It's hard to see the text. What file do I need to edit in order to get that bright background to change? I know the coding, I just need to know which file.
  • I'm assuming it'd be a css change so: /themes/vanilla/styles/default/vanilla.css iirc.
  • All the other CSS stuff is still exactly as it was before. It's only this one instance so it leads me to believe it's another file OR a new line of code in that particular file you mentioned that needs altered.
  • Yeah it's probably the latter...
  • well... I did an HTML color code search on that file. In this case it was #FFEECC. I changed all #FFEECC to the color I desired. It did not change the part I was trying to change.

    I have no idea what to do now.
  • In vanilla.css, search for the following, and change the background and border colors to what you want. That should fix the updates and reminders page:

    #Form form { margin: 0px; padding:10px 10px 0px 10px; border:1px solid #ffedae; border-left:0px; border-right:0px; background-color:#fef9e9; }
  • I'm sorry. I'm really not trying to be difficult, but that didn't work. :(
  • Have you hard refreshed your browser? I have this problem all the time, CSS gets pretty deeply cached.
    I've completely removed CSS files and they still work!
