In human readable words should sound like: if version is not 2.0 then show 1.1.x :P


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Mstcool, have you checked your forum version? I mean using maintenance. I am surprised to hear that yours is showing update for version 1.1.x. I do not think that is even possible, or is it?

Just and FYI here , but some web hosting companies Cpanel, script installers show the SMF 1.1.7 as the most stable or latest version, or possible even older versions, But if this what they may be referring to and the latest Version,  if so then they will need to install, then update, or contact the Host!  ( if they know what they doing they can upload and install the SMF 2.0.3 with the installer that come with the SMF ( fresh install ).

Just general Information intended here!

Regards,
Maxx

I did not say it did, I was trying to clear up some above confusion, on the versions, and they had nothing to with 2.1 either!

I know very well where I'm at :)

thank you.

Now you can see why I do not post much here!

I'm not confused, I was more worried that everyone else would be confused. Yes, some installers state 1.1.17 as the latest, but that's because of themselves not being particularly up to date - but that's nothing to do with the issue being discussed that the update code in SMF admin panel that sometimes 2.0 series gets confused.

In fact, actually so does 2.1, both have been known to report 1.1.17 as being the latest when it shouldn't.

Nope. This is a public forum, everyone can voice their opinions.

Wait, is that a compliment or a back-handed insult? I was voicing my opinion that we had one issue that was related, and then some other stuff came along that would have confused people more than might have been already, that was all. No games, no trickery, no snideness, just the observation that some people would be more confused reading this topic than they would have been before.

Most of the time being like me is actually quite miserable, because people like me spend hundreds of hours making things for other people and we never get much appreciation for the time we've spent in doing what we do. Being like me is not something people should try to emulate, because it's a rather lonely place. (I'm not complaining. I am where I am in my life due to my own choices for the most part. I do what I do so others don't have to. There is something quite acceptable about it all really.)

I believe you fix that with re-fetching the Simple Machines files, which gets done on a regular basis. Not sure though, could be all wrong... That's for 2.0 though, 2.1 does not have such a fix.

Yes, and the files get refetched daily. Except sometimes the wrong file gets fetched.

You are silently loved and appreciated by the masses. You are not in a lonely place but in a crowd of silent admirers. As off topic as that is, it had to be said.

I made a test forum and thats the only file I uploaded. So yup its possible. :p

@Emanuele aha thx for making it clear.

@Road Rash Soo true!


EDIT: Also will we be able to install the current curve theme? I like the new one but I would like to have both. So time to time I could change it and stuff. Just Wondering. Yup its too early. But just wondering. :p Thanks!

Has the file in the first post been updated since it was released?

I tried out SMF 2.1 today and I am impressed with all the new features and admin controls. I especially liked the addition of auto draft saving. However I could not be it to work either as the admin or a regular member. It was all turned on, permissions set to on and the default of minimum 30 (seconds I guess) was saved. But no matter how long I waited, the draft was not auto saved anywhere I could find it. Also the settings say that when in post you can select and insert a saved draft but there was no command to do so. Only if I was in profiles and I clicked on edit the manually saved draft, it toke me to the message board.

Played with installing various of the mods and themes for SMF 2.xx and the all seemed to install without errors and function as they should.

Good job people, keep it up. I think this one is a keeper  ;D

While you're thinking of it can you do something with those up and down arrows? They are extremely hard to see especially when they are on a light background.
Much appreciated.

Yeah, 2.0 themes aren't going to work properly on 2.1.
