solved Backups files in packages folder

January 17, 2017, 05:14:38 PM by JennyLeez

The backup folder in the Packages folder is taking up a heap of disk space. There is 4 years worth of backups in there.
Could someone please advise as to whether we can safely remove the old backups retaining just the current ones.
I have everything backed up on other hard drives so can always put back.

From what I can see as long as I do not want to roll back this should be ok.

xx Upgrade from SMF 1.1.21 to current version

January 14, 2017, 04:35:36 PM by Dayna Bedrosian
Our forum had been hacked and I had to do a restore and before I did the restore it had been unusable for a couple years.  I am looking to upgrade to the newest version.  The current one seems to not really work correctly anymore. It doesn't even pull up the option to upgrade anymore and the news feed doesn't work.  So when I upgrade will the theme that I am using still work?  IT is called AF316.  Also I am not sure how to upgrade this since in the past I just clicked on the button to upgrade.  Thank you for any help.

solved YIM icon not showing up?

December 09, 2016, 11:47:20 AM by mayormccheese2k
Hi all -

I'm a long time admin of an SMF 1.1.21 forum. Recently I noticed that the icon for YIM is not showing up. I'm assuming this image got moved on Yahoo's server.

Anyone who has a YIM ID entered gets something like the attached instead of an icon.

Any idea what needs to be changed to fix this?

Thanks -

solved Maintenance Mode

Probably a easy question but I couldn't find answer.

I will upgrade from 1.1.21 to 2.0.12 tomorrow morning and want to know what happens to logged on users when I put the forum into maintenance mode? I don't what them making changes in the database while the upgrade is running.
