Why would they release a demo of 2.0 beta before it's even fixed up yet?  ::)



/doh
Well we've thought about doing a 2.0 demo, especially after we missed the June mark.  There wasn't any disagreement about it but it really boiled down to time and energy.  The time/energy spent on demoing up 2.0 was spent on fixing 2.0 bugs so the idea didn't happen.  Sometimes I wish I could slip out of space/time so I could do more :P

Is SMF 2.0 going to be a nightmare in terms of updating 30 to 50 mods plus the many themes for the average forum board owner?

I don't believe the average user has 30-50 mods!

All mods will need to be rewritten but with any luck SMF will do away with the need to use many of them.

Themes will also need to be rewritten. The upgrader tries to update all installed themes at the time but it won't be foolproof and to get the new features you will certainly want to update the templates.

Regarding the theme side of things, I remember seeing another post saying that the theme used here (simplemachines.org/community) ISNT currently part of the 2.0 package, does this mean its simply using an updated version of the 1.1.3 default theme? I'm interested in renewing my CM (didnt realise it'd expired lol) and dont mind using a beta version (never had any serious issues with SMF beta's in the past ;D) - but my members will scream murder if they've gotta deal with a broken theme lol

Also, would it be too early to work on themes for 2.0? We're wanting to make a custom theme to match up the forums with our main website, and it'd make more sense to do this with 2.0 rather than doing a 1.1.3 theme and then having to upgrade it later.

It'd definitely be to early to theme for 2.0.  The first beta is just now out, and they developers are still adding more features and updating things.  I asked this same question myself and the answer I got was that the current 2.0 theme(nearly same as 1.1.3) will most likely get revamped by the time it's all released to the public.  The same thing happened when progressing to 1.0 to 1.1.

Talking about themes...

I'm in the process of making a modified theme based of the deafult with new images but it will be both for SMF 1.1.3 and SMF2.0.

That is quite right, at the moment the decision to use this theme as the new default hasn't been finalised, and is still being discussed, keep in mind that the default theme that comes with 1.1 wasn't released until RC2.

Also, would it be too early to work on themes for 2.0? We're wanting to make a custom theme to match up the forums with our main website, and it'd make more sense to do this with 2.0 rather than doing a 1.1.3 theme and then having to upgrade it later.
If you want to update your own custom theme that you have for your own site, go ahead. I have already updated vSMFB-Multi-4 to 2.0, but renamed it to vSMFB-Multi-6 (5 has come and gone :P), when Beta 2 comes out, just use File compare software on the defaults in Beta 1 and Beta 2 and you can add the differences in.

We dont have our own custom theme as of yet, we were using Helios_Multi prior to the release of 1.1, and have since been using the default since I'm much more of a coder than a designer, and my designer has been busy with RL matters. As he's now eager to develop a custom theme, I basically was wondering if the SMF team had any major changes to themes planned, or if it was more likely to just be major updates/improvements/bug fixes from here to public release. After reading more about 2.0, I think I'll just err on the side of caution and get him to wait, at least until beta 2.

There are programs such as diff which you run via command line.

This may not be able to get all things but might be able to provide a patch file to upgrade you from beta 1 to beta 2 when beta 2 comes around.

As this is the first beta of 2.0 languages are not fully translated to 2.0 yet.

But 2.0 still supports other languages as did we did 1.1

Our support will be the same as its always been so I would not worry there. I have to agree with Grudge regarding the 40-50 mods. With the extra functions that are in-built within SMF this will mean that for many forum owners mods that are currently installed will not be needed.

For those mods that are still required they will need to be updated for 2.0. Infact, for most mod authors they have either updated mods (especially true for those that are team members) and others are currently or have plans to update mods for 2.0.

If you have questions I would contact the mod authors directly regarding plans for updating etc.

Will there be the current (1.1.3) default theme in 2.0? Because I'm rather attached to it ;)
