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 These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Where is the Import link ?


After a fresh Vanilla 2.8 install, I can't found the "Import" link on the Dashboard. The database was empty before I installed Vanilla. What I am missing ?

    You need to add the following line to the /conf/config.php file to enable the dashboard menu entry:

    $Configuration['Feature']['Import']['Enabled'] = true;

    You will only be able to see it if you are logged in as the administrator.

    But keep in mind that you only need the import if you are coming from another forum script, not for upgrading from one Vanilla 2.x version to another.

    Good luck and welcome to Vanilla!

  • Thank you !

    Yes I need this because I'm comming from another forum script.
