I've just tried to do a version check on my YaBB SE board...I'm told that I'm not running the latest version and then it lists what isn't updated...thing is I get this -

The most recent version of index.php is YaBB SE 1.5.4 while your version is .

As you can see it doesn't tell me anything. The main admin screen tells me the latest version is 1.5.4SE and my version is 1.5.4SE - I'm guessing an update is in order...but what do I do?

I've been away from here for a long time and only got round to it today to discover changes...can someone e-mail me a brief outline of what I'm going to have to do to update my board please? I would read it all but after the first page I got totally lost.

All I want to do is update my board to the latest version of whatever it is that YABB SE now is...can someone let me know what I have to do and where I can get the patches from please?

Thanks,

Richard.

P.S. Sorry if this is Off-topic but after getting lost on the first page I thought this wouln't cause too much trouble.

Another question - after visiting SimpleMachine's website - how to I download the software and install it? Apaprently it isn't available yet...

I'm wanting to upgrade but I'm also wanting to preserve my database...my host only allows 1 database on my account so does this mean that I'll have to loose it or will it simply sit 'on-top' of the old database and make the changes as it upgrades?

I think it will exactly do this. It will just update your old database.

Ignore it! See here:

Well, the second stage doesn't work for me either, but I think it's been like this for a while.

If you are ever unsure whether you have the latest version of a gile, just remember:
When you do the version check, notice that there is a spot that says "submit version check" which checks with the yabbse server to see if you have the latest version of each file.
If any of yours are outdated, it will let you know.

It's not working properly at the moment or I'd have suggested it myself!

So long as you have the individual file versions listed under 'Detailed Version Check' earlier in that thread, you can safely ignore the nonsense you're getting from 'Submit Version Check'!

Another question - after visiting SimpleMachine's website - how to I download the software and install it? Apaprently it isn't available yet...

Well, it is for Charter Members but, although it's running very happily at simplemachines.org and on a number of CM and team sites, it's still in beta and not advised for 'live' sites yet.

It'll update your DB as klumy says.

Thanks for the update...only question I now have is how do I know I have the final versions of all the files?

The reason I'm asking is that when I installed the final upgrade to YaBB SE 1.5.4SE I still see that some of my modules are set as 1.5.2 i.e. English.lng...the upgrade didn't come with a new english.lng module so I'm still using the one from back then. Basically do I give a list of the modules I have with the version number and see if they are the latest? If so, where do I list them?

Thanks.

Richard.

Wow... I don't Kno if this is a good idea, but I have no say in it and I beleive you guys know whats best for YabbSE...

Anyway Im wondering if these updates are for YabbSE 1.5.5 or Simple Machines?

Quote
Here is a list of changes I can remember:
Enhanced look on the Profile screen

Enhanced look in the Admin Center

New smilies

Faster kernel and better code

New BBC tag icons

Child boards - boards inside boards

A little different translation system with separate files for each section

To ways to change your Forum Template

Possibility to see Total time Logged In
[note from [Unknown]: there are a lot more, a list will come around soon.]

Cause I really wanna use the "Child Boards" feature you know boards within boards.(if thats out now how do i use it)

Oh yea, um are you gonna leave this site up for anyone who chooses to be YabbSE loyalist? lol dumb question its just that I think I read something aobut more adnced coding and all that, so I was wondering if people choose to stay with YABBSE will they still be able to visit this site and basically ask eachother for help and post new mods.

Oh and one more question... This will be YabbSE with a diffrent name? No real change at all right?

While we'll still be providing YaBB SE support for some time, my understanding is that these boards will eventually be archived.

No, it will be SMF! Brought to you by the same team, but a superior new board rewritten from the ground up. But all of this has already been covered in the first page of this topic, so I don't know why you're asking...

No, your board will continue working fine.  There will however be no more upgrades to YaBB SE and we will recommend you upgrade to SMF.

Great. Received e-mail about this too, the YabbSE forum will shut down in a month, encouraging me to "upgrade"(?) to SMF. Wonderful.

Sorry, but it don't even consider "upgrading"(?) to anything I can't even have a look at yet. There is no download of SMF available and I won't rely on the Haleluja's from people that do somehow have it running. In this perspective I find it very, very weird to close down an entire supportforum. "We can't maintain two forums". Why not? Lock all topics and let it sit there. I really can't see the problem there.
