  • Upgrade to beta 3 with Hacks

    I have beta 2 with a couple of hacks installed, that I remember:

    vbcode buttons from Kier and Who Posted also from Kier!

    I wonder if the upgrade will mess it up?
    I'm gonna try to upgrade tonight, is there any special step I should take besides backing up the db?

    No considerations are made for hacks when the upgrade scripts are made. Any code changes you made will be lost but template changes should not be touched.

      Oh ok, that's fair enough, the changes on the code itself for thse two hacks were minimum, so I should be fine!

      Thanks for the fast reply!

        You may have already upgraded, but what I did when upgrading from beta 2 to beta 3 was use the beyondcompare software. I compared the original beta 2 files to my edited beta 2 files, and from there I was able to make the same changes to the beta 3 scripts. Some of the scripts in the beta 3 release have very minor changes (at least the three or four I messed with), so depending which files you need to edit, it may not be very difficult.

        Hope this helps
