Wow, lots of good news in this update, Arantor. I really appreciate your ability to give us details without bogging us down, or talking over our heads.

Many "Thanks!" to Arantor, to all the Devs, and the whole SMF Team for continuing their wonderful work on SMF. Great Job~!

It's good to see Arantor on the SMF Team. :D

As ever, anyone who checks our Github will probably have already seen some of the changes we've done - for those who haven't, https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1 is where it's all happening.


Looks really nice.  (now for this weeks dumb question) Am I right in assuming we can download those files from Github, and update our test installs of 2.1?  Though I tried it, and my test install works (with errors) I haven't a clue how to use Github to be honest.  :-[

Sure you can download it from there and run the large upgrade (you'll find the upgrade PHP and SQL files in the other/ folder), which should hopefully ensure you have all the tables and whatnot that you will need.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Thanks, that's the files I was missing, I had just the ones in the zip.  :-[ How do you download the files in the "other" folder please?

the other folder is there....      it's part of the standard git package...    you just don't expect to see it and so skip over it the first (few) time(s)
(ok, well, at least I did -- DOH!))
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Did I mention I need to visit Specsavers.  Thanks guys.  I even looked in there again before I asked, and missed it.  I'm off to try it out.

Good you removed one of the menu bars.
Sad you removed the wrong one!

And if you paid attention you'd understand that I didn't merely remove it, I replaced it with something else.

I just don't like the top menu introduced in SMF 2.0.
It's really as simple as that.

And I'm sorry but it isn't going away, especially because of the issues that have always been with the sidebar for the last ten years which were only made vastly worse in SMF 2.0 (like a security hole at one point that has since been fixed)

Fortunately an alternative was added in place of the sidebar menu.
