Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

It is pity that 1.4 still remains 1.2's look. It should use 1.3's.

The goal of 1.4 was to be backwards compatible. If we had changed the whole markup it would cause trouble for people who want to upgrade their 1.2 forum if it's integrated in their website. And mods for 1.2 would work anymore.

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

Otherwise, it doesn't change any part in the core of FluxBB.

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

I edited the first post after the site was updated, obviously incorrectly.


The only thing worse than finding a bug is knowing I created it in the first place.

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

1. Why should we change "FluxBB" to "PunBB" (like on the screen)?
2. Is there a file like "12_to_14_update.php" to update my database after changing files? Is it not necessary in this case?

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

1. Aha, right.  That's what I get for posting 10 minutes after waking up wink
It's a comment, there's no need to change it. Whether it says PunBB or FluxBB there is irrelevant.

2. db_update.php is included and should automatically detect that you need to update your forum once you update the files.

Is there any plans for an updater for 1.3-legacy to 1.4?

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

db_update.php is meant to update properly: if not, write a bug report specifying exactly where it fails.

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

Hey, after db_update.php "sucessfully updated my database", then I click link to my forum index. And after that I have this message again: "Your FluxBB database is out-of-date and must be upgraded in order to continue. Please run db_update.php in order to complete the upgrade process.". Then, I again run db_update.php and I have a message: "Your database is already as up-to-date as this script can make it."

What is wrong?

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

That's the first report I've heard of it happening and I'm afraid I don't see where in the code in include/common.php it's going wrong:

    if (!isset($pun_config['o_database_revision']) || $pun_config['o_database_revision'] < FORUM_DB_REVISION || version_compare($pun_config['o_cur_version'], FORUM_VERSION, '<'))

You would have to experiment and see which of the checks is failing.

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

Is it fairly safe to use the 1.4 beta in a production site?

The answer is already in your question. Beta. Safe it most likely may be. Advisable it is not. Merely for the fact that beta status means it may have hitherto unnoticed bugs.

Re: FluxBB 1.4-beta1 released

A SQL injection is a bug too. Anything which doesn't work as designed or as it should is construed as a bug. Again, whilst ever it is in Beta status, nothing can be guaranteed. Unlikely though it is that any bugs such as the above exist, there is that possibility. The whole point of a Beta release is to find any bugs which may exist.

V1.4 comes from 1.2 so there cannot be much wrong smile
But bugs may always exist but not noticed

There has been quite a lot of new code added to 1.4, hence the Beta release for bug testing. 1.2* was obviously stable, whereas 1.4 is the same basic beast but with a revamp.
