Mods from 2.0.9 to 2.1?
« on: November 30, 2014, 12:22:38 PM »
Hi guys

I might want to have my forum run v2.1 Beta 1, but I have various mods installed.

So, which kinds of mods could easily transfer over to 2.1, with that emulation mode?
Can a modded installation be upgraded to 2.1?

The results with mods that'll work with 2.1 are going to be mixed, it's going to have to be a trial and error thing on your part. But a vast majority are not going to work.

Minor things such as Avatar packs should work with relative ease.

What I would do is create a test site and see if the mods you like work well on 2.1 if not then wait on upgrading till they are updated.

In any case, running beta versions on production sites is not especially wise unless you know how to investigate/debug things.

Also note that themes for 2.0.x absolutely will not work with 2.1, so you'll be limited to the default theme unless you want to upgrade/write a theme yourself.

Thanks! But sorry to The theme is test theme and I'm still working on it, and  I can not commit to it until the later when it's done and that will be after the SMF 2.1 RC is released and if all goes well, then tested in the real world. then cleaned up and sorted out.

I only posted here so the SMF user can see for themselves,  that the customized themes are doable for the 2.1 so far! just  an example so to speak!
I'll will be doing more as time permits!

So, all mods that edit theme files need to be rewritten or updated?

Um, yes, because the theme is so different?

basically -- ALMOST every mod is going to have to be re-written. (there are a few that may work - the more they use hooks, the more likely)

but what is the hurry?  SMF is in BETA 1...  no site should be using it in production and we are not interested in mods for a beta1 --  what we WANT is for people to TEST the basic installation and confirm if they discover any issues or not...  installing mods would defeat that purpose actually.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Maybe, maybe mod may not look indifferent (or broken) in SMF 2.1 beta BUT it needs changes because SMF 2.0 has extra spans to show rounded corners, which is not needed in SMF 2.1, mod authors needs to look those changes and migrate their mods.

I'm interested in seeing the mods updated to SMF 2.1 at this stage because we can work on migration and maybe add some more css rules to core software to support mod authors. Other than I agree with Kindred.

General statement, for my test results! ( on some portal mods)

I tested 3 major Portals mods, and they all have issues that, deal with, many errors during install, and 2 of them need be emulated, and with these errors. ( now some Errors dealing with security and many with the source files especially the Admin.php.

Not saying anything except this is what I do and find, I know it's early in the Beta stage, however I love to know for my own reasons, how much or how close they are to being suited for the RC + ! ....

Basically what I found, is the one portal works on the back side, but not front, with many errors in the logs and the other seems to work most of it's stuff front and back except for the some features with errors in the logs. ( after emulation)

The Other works  both front and back and install, however the default theme does work well with that one.

So in short they have issues, that do not seem that bad to me, with the exception of the security issues :) Not mentioning names here because I'm passing this info the to portal coder's and they also agree that it's a bit early to start working on them.

also test a media mod that works well, after a minor change in the admin.php.

Now I like the 2.1 and how it coming about. No complaints here!
I posted a few issues from the start of the alpha till this point and they all have been rectified so far! :)
and I've seen many changes for the good in this time. so thanks and CYL.

I'm not in a hurry. I'm just curious.
I want to inform myself well in advance. x3

Can a modded installation be upgraded to 2.1?

I upgraded it and found that it can be shared by some mod.

Thank you Am i'm working on Lighter one also as starting toy with others, but most all are based on the core theme framework, with my menu and styles, but I'm holding off for the RC before I'll finish them off!

But the general set up of the The 2.1, has is going to be hard to beat, I like the way it feels. BUT I'm sure we could do things different as time goes on :)

Not to mention the 2.1 default theme is remarkably mobile device compatible, noticeable improvements from previous versions...

Yes it is. The default theme in 2.1 is done with responsive design techniques, which means it should work quite well on a variety of devices and screen sizes.

Yeppers sir, kudos to yall, you all are doing it up great this go round, I did slightly crack mine though, somewhere along the line of manipulating all these mods I installed I accidently messed it up just a tad, there's a short snippet of html code being echoed on some of the popup profile fields, haven't yet backtracked exactly where the problem was introduced...
