Errr uhh should I remove all the hacks and mods I have on this site b-4 I install the 2.1 to the 2.0.18 ? or just shoot the works .

shadav

either way doesn't matter, 2.1 will overwrite all files so any modifications or customizations will be removed

2.1 is not a stable release so it's not advisable to use on a live site yet and there's limited mods and themes for it since it is still an rc version...you can use it on a live site but be prepared for possible bugs and things....and since it is an rc, when you update to the next rc, or when the finalized version is released, there's no way to patch update, you would need to do a full update which means any mods or customization that was done would be gone and need to be reinstalled.

as it is still an rc, there is no way yet to do a patch update, only a full upgrade


shadav

was that for the 2.1 upgrade? you can't install it via the package manager...you have to unzip it and upload the files either via ftp or your hosting account's file manager

Now thats some real good info rat thar ...lol
I kinda figgured as much ,Thanks for the lesson.
I don't gots FTP  nor  know where my c-panel  or should I say which server this particular site is on but will find it .Thats another lil deal I am working on (Getting all my sites to one server instead on three or four ) Kinda causes confusion for even a young mind much less one with all the cobwebs I got .) Nothing ventured nothing gained .

Learned a lot today
1. Simple machines 2.0.18 will not accept the upgrade made for 2.1 mod that Might put the Board Icon auto load thingy that is in .creataforum special built code  vbgamer45 built for his .createaforum version of simplemachines forums nor will any other mod I installed that would be compatible with the version of simplemachines forum software I am running.
2 Sometimes the mod you install does not install or show as installed in the forum packages installed but does load to server where it sits there waiting for you to come find it and quarantine it till you figure out wtf it does or goes.
3. What I want my simplemachine 2.0.18 forums to do ( easy load Board Icons software  does Not Exist) YET but might can be coded by vbgamer45 to work on simplemachines 2.0.18
4. You can not upload through the on board package installer on forums the 2.1 upgrade as it has to installed directly to the server via ftp client or manually loaded in the c-panel files  directory which I ain't really good at yet nor Know where the hell they are located for the site I been messing with but will find it .
5. That you guys here are most kind and understanding and PATIENT with old farts wannabe site fixers like me .

Man ! Over 3 THoUSAND VIEWS and NO TAKERS.
This must be impossible for code peeps to do .

Please bear in mind that a significant percentage of those views will be from guests, spammers, and bots ;).  Also, it is worth noting that members of the Team will check this topic if it receives new posts, so there will also be duplicate views.  As a result, the number of views is not representative.

Also this is the feature requests board not the mod requests board. If you want a mod then you can make a new topic in the correct board. This being here means that you want a feature added to SMF and that may not happen.

I put in Mods and was told to put it over here
https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=577093.0

I will post it on an Interstate Billboard if you think it will get results  ;D

Illori

i believe in that topic they were saying you had posted it in this board and it was moved out as may not qualify for a feature that we would add to SMF. which at this time still has yet to be determined.

also if you want this for SMF 2.0.* you will not get it as a feature as SMF 2.0.* is feature frozen for years now.

Well How can it be Thawed out !

Irisado

2.0 cannot be thawed out.  Essentially, there are two options:

1. It is added as a feature to a future version of SMF.
2. It is made into a modification.

OK,Thanks.
So can you make a modification or know someone who will ?

Irisado

I'm not on the Team for my coding ability ;).  You would need to ask in the modifications board.
