Yeah...well...the commit message is not *that* explicative. :P

Anyway for more details, I'd say bump the topic in a week just to give people a bit of time to update.


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

Mine reads (c) 2112. ::)

I'm impressed how important this BS (a stupid year declared in the footer of a page) could be to some of you...really.
Next patch will just be to increase the year in the copyright string, so that you will be happy.

My point was that it read 2012 and now it reads 2011....and yes, it really DOES matter to me...that it appears to my guests as if my sites haven't been updated since 2011.  The question is...why wouldn't that matter to YOU?  It should.

Yeah, it should likely read 2012, rather than 2011, but if your members are focusing on that detail, aka BS, they are focusing on the wrong thing. Your boards also show dates and times (down to the second) and I would hope your guests view that rather than the copyright year of the software you are using. :)

It's an easy fix if you want to update it manually. From what I read in previous threads on the subject, as long as you don't change the SMF © , and  Simple Machines part, you can change to 2012 if you want.

Kindred

actually, no... you can't.

remember, the copyright to SMF is held by Simple Machines. Therefore, the (c) 2011 is a legal statement by Simple Machines that has nothing to do with your individual forum and is not yours to change.

I guess it's a discussion for somewhere else and if a lot of people feel it's really important that it is changed, a tiny little patch could naturally be released by ourselves if it's an issue. :)

Exactly.  That's what I am trying to say.  I don't want to touch it.

Not in 2.0 and above. That in the footer can be changed or even removed as so provided by the license.

The part at the top can not be removed, even the license says against it. (Credits)
And yes, the footer could be removed, but usually support is not given to forums who do remove it.

I really urge this discussion, if it must be held, to be moved elsewhere, please. :)

I agree that if the year or the license is to be discussed, it can be discussed elsewhere. I just checking up because the non-updated year (together with the copyright in the footer) and whether that can be changed or not was made an issue while the license say it can be changed. Removal is another issue not raised here but merely to stress the earlier point. ;)

Kindred

Ahmad,

You can totally change or remove the footer... But you can not change the copyright year of the SMF software. As I said, that is a legal statement held by simple machines.
For example, you cold not change it to SMF (c) 1999 nor can you change it to SMF (c) 2013
Those changes are reserved for the individual or compan who holds the copyright.
You could change it to my site (c) 2012 if you like, though...

With no doubt I agree on this. But the main issue that was on my mind is what appear to users i.e. in the footer not in the software. So hopefully it is clear to all now. :)

What?

When I try to download the zip and upload and install it manually I get...

An Error Has Occurred!
Package upload failed due to the following error:
"Although the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the "temp" sub-directory are both writable. If you continue to experience this problem you should try extracting the package on your PC and uploading the extracted files into a subdirectory in your Packages directory and try again. For example, if the package was called shout.tar.gz you should:
1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.
2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your "Packages" folder, in this example you may call it "shout".
3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.
4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF."

emanuele

Did you download it from here?
As double check, try cleaning your browser cache and downloading the file again.

That' really strange, I tested the patch on two quite picky servers that always give me issues with packages, but that patch installed without a problem... ???
