Anyone else having buggy login/logout after upgrading to 1.0.8?
Nop...

..You should try clearing your browsers cache and refreshing the page, maybe it's a cookie problem...

Works perfect with 1.07 and german language. I couldn't update
from paket manager (like I can update nearly nothing with it) so
i did it manually like alsways and it works! Fine, thanks!

after updating, when accessing the admin area, it no longer asks for my password, eventhough i do not have this feature disabled. Is it supposed to be that way now in 1.08?

It asks for your password once per session. If you try logging in using another computer, or if you clear your browsers cookies and sessions, then it should again ask you.

logged out, tried what you suggested. Logged back on, clicked on the admin button and had instant acess, no need to redo password again. Weird

After just logging in, it doesn't ask for the password, because you've recently proved that you are the admin (by logging into the account). ıf you stay logged in, without doing anything in the admin panel, your admin session should expire and ask for your password. Wait for 30 minutes, for example.

Sorry about my english, I'm a 16 years old peruvian boy. I would like to help...

Well for these guys who are having some problems updating their forum to SMF 1.0.8.

If you are using SMF 1.0.7 just follow me

1: Download the zip file from here (click here and save it)

Note: Download the zip file named: SMF 1.0.8 - update this is not a packge is an update that' it...

2: Now unzip (unpack) the file using WinRar or Winzip, whatever you want, just make sure to unpack it.

3: Now connect to your hosting/server using an FTP Program such as CuteFTP

4: Now using you FTP program navigate trought your forum directory, for example the path will be:
/yourdomainname.com/forum  or /forum.yourdomainname 

Note: Don't navigate trought your forum directory using your broxser (IE or Firefox Not at all) navigate to your forum directory using your FTP Program.

5: Now, upload all files and folders that you unzip (unpack) from the file we just downloaed. If the FTP program tell you that the files and folders are already in your server just replace them, just hit "yes to all" to replace all the new files and folders with the ones we have in our forum.

6: Now that you had upload all files and folders to your forum directory you need to run the upgrade.php

Open IE or Firefox and go to: www.you-forum-domain.com/upgrade.php

This will upgrade your forum to the latest version, just follow the instructions.

Note: If you are using another language as default instead of english it might give you an error when running upgrade.php you have to download the latest language version and upload it to your forum, here a list of languages with RC3:

http://www.simplemachines.org/download/?languages

Please follow this steps in order to update your forum 1.0.7 to 1.0.8 and RC2 to RC3 just make sure to download the right files because here we download the update for 1.0.7 to 1.0.8

Last Thing... Remember to delete the file named: upgrade.php from your forum directory after updating your forum

;D

I'm new at this, and not having much success upgrading.  When I go to the Package Manager, I am told
"A security issue has been identified in SMF 1.0.6. You can install this patch (click here to install) to easily update yourself to the latest version."
So I click, and the next page states:
"Installing this package will perform the following actions:"

But I always get this error:

      Type                     Action                             Description
1.   Execute Modification   ./Sources/QueryString.php Failure

How can I solve this Failure error?  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

I get the same problem. Is there any other link I could use to directly update from 1.0.6 to 1.0.8? Or at least a way to update from 1.0.6 to 1.0.7 so then we can activate it with the given link?

Thanks

Just download the updated files for 1.0.7 and open it and upload them...
the index.php file just updates the smf version.. SO you can manually change that if you got mod installed.

As this is a critical release, you can easily upgrade by one of the following ways:

  • Use the package manager in your administration center - one click, and you're done.
  • Download the update archive file, and upload all of the files from it.
  • Download the modification file attached to this message, and manually modify the files according to it.

...

Mods
We believe this update may cause some mods to stop working.  As always please use caution when using any mods.

Uhmmm,

Because I use a heavily modded version of SMF, I would like to use option 3:
  • Download the modification file attached to this message, and manually modify the files according to it.

But I can't find "the modification file attached to this message". At least, I assume that the modification file should be a text file with detailed information about the changed code in the affected SMF-files?

Kind regards,
BB

Use the package file, extract it and check the .mod file, it has instructions basically on what to modify manually... I had to do this too.

I´ve update to SMF 1.0.8 from Package without problems, but there are files that don´t update, they are: BoardIndex.template.php, Display.template.php and Recent.template.php.
Then, I´ve downloaded the update and I´ve updated manually only the three files but they don´t update.
Anybody could help me to update these three files, please?. Thanks

hey i really really really need help with fixing the error i get now, i am not super literate with php code so i relied heavily on the package manager and now that i cant use it i'm stuck in limbo   :-\

does anyone know what i should do or how to fix this??

i click package manager and get this

2: call_user_func(Packages) [<a href='function.call-user-func'>function.call-user-func</a>]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback

I'd really appreciate it and so would my forums members  :(

As far as I can tell, from the list of changed files linked on the first page of this thread, there are just 4 changed files when updating from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8. I don't know why the update package has a lot of extra files, maybe it is for updating older versions.

If you have custom modifications (such as CAPTCHA, or custom profile fields), you'll have to do a compare on each page. Use a tool like Winmerge.

Scroll down and examine each difference in the code. PHP has the beauty of being not too hard to get a general idea about, even for the non-programmer (compare that to Perl!) so you should be able to figure out which changes you should accept. Good mods are well commented, showing where the custom code begins and ends, so this shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Then simply upload and overwrite your old files with your new ones.

Since I have some custom code, the method I describe is the one I followed for this small patch. This took me about 5 minutes, and since my forum isn't very active, I didn't bother to shut it down. In fact, since there seem to be no changes to the database, and no changes to database functions, you can probably safely do this update 'live'.

If you are updating an older version than 1.0.7, this method will not work.
