Quote from: nokonium on February 15, 2007, 02:04:37 PMI have a test board where I work on Tiny Portal. It is 1.1.1 and the only mods installed were TP 0.97 and Advanced Visual Verification. When the patch came out I installed it via the feed into the Package Manager and on test it failed where expected, so I uninstalled the AVV and it updated without any errors. When I wanted to test a TP 0.98 alpha, I uninstalled TP 0.97 (for 1.1.1) and re-applied the patch. On trying to install TP 0.98 I got the package is corrupted etc. although the package_info file includes install and uninstall info for 1.1.2. To install it I had to uninstall the patch, install TP 0.98 and re-apply the patch.As 1.1.1 board I have no problems installing mods or themes, as 1.1.2 I am having problems, is this a server problem or a result of one of the security loopholes patched in 1.1.2? As a postscript, I do not think that the Visual Verification improvements in 1.1.2 are good enough, I still want to use the AVV Mod.
Quote from: Oldiesmann on February 15, 2007, 02:23:16 PMNot sure why you ran into problems installing 0.98 after upgrading to 1.1.2.We were not trying to make the AVV mod obsolete with the changes to the visual verification system - we simply added some much-needed improvements as the original system had some flaws (it didn't work on all servers and was sometimes difficult to read).

Quote from: jdwaso on February 14, 2007, 12:21:08 PMI have used SMF, and decided to host a forum from my friend using SMF as its great. But am I the only person who cant install ANY packages from that third party thing accessed via the control panel being told.. "The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF."Is this cos this release is "too new"?
QuoteI'm running a different forum with phpBB and a lot of custom written pages. When will there be a conversion program written to rewrite all my custom pages to make them work with SMF as actions? LOL

Quote from: Centreflunk on February 13, 2007, 02:30:49 PMHi SMF Crew,Trying to upgrade to 1.1.2 through Package Manager, I get the following message.Last week I "manually" installed YouTube Mod.Any idea !!Error in Package InstallationAt least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.Type Action Description1. Execute Modification smf_1-1-2.mod Modification parse error2. Execute Modification smf_1-1-2_can_fail.xml Modification parse error3. Execute Modification - Modification parse error
