  • Upgrading from 3.8.4 to 3.8.5

    How do I upgrade from 3.8.4 to 3.8.5? It seems as if 3.8.5 crashes the whole board for other people and it's crucial that I do not create any problems if I upgrade. Thanks! I saw the readme for upgrading from a previous version, is that what I do or is there more?

    The procedure is basically the same. Only thing is make sure to make a backup of the db prior to the upgrade.

      Thanks, you mean a backup of the sql with phpmyadmin? So I will not or should not have issues if I follow the instructions on the readme, right?

        Yes, I meant a backup of your database. That if for one of those just in case cases

        And yes again, you should be all set if you follow the instructions. Good luck with the upgrade and let us know how it will go.

            I would recommend copying your database/directory structure, make a test forum, and run the upgrade there first.

                  Ok one issue, when I reverted the navbar it added the default navbar below the template. How can I fix this? I Use the BINGO skin! Thanks

                    For help with custom skins, you should contact the skin creator. However, it sounds like they've added the navbar to another template, possibly the header, already.

                    PS. One thread as opposed to three for the same issue will be fine...

                      Ok sorry, I know the problem is because I reverted the skin. However I thought I had fixed it when I reinstalled the skin now it came back as double again and its messed up with reviewpost as well. Does anyone know who can help? Thanks

                        You need to contact the skin designer if you're having a problem with a custom style.
