No it doesn't, it just blindly accepts some info in a few lines in a field or file.(after all, the board knows which version you are running, and the last version available right?)
actually the procedure in the system tab is nothing like what I described. If you check my post I gave a link to the "file replacement" method that I was talking about.xtellox wrote: ↑Thu Mar 22, 2018 2:05 amI upgraded from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2 by following the procedure described in the ACP "System" tab, which is actually pretty close to the procedure you linked in your message.
I don't really understand when you say "it is a file replacement", "you download. unzip, upload and run the database update only and you are done". I've just completed my upgrade to 3.2.2, it took me around 45 minutes in total (30 minutes just to upload the unzipped package). I'm just saying: we could save 30 minutes out of the 45 minutes if we wouldn't have to upload all these files. And I would consider my internet connection pretty good. And even if my connection (or my web host) is not really fast, what I suggested would still be faster, easier, and more reliable
Oh really? Could you then explain me this:warmweer wrote: ↑Thu Mar 22, 2018 8:37 amNo it doesn't, it just blindly accepts some info in a few lines in a field or file.(after all, the board knows which version you are running, and the last version available right?)
It's the admin who knows (should know) exactly which version and whether there have been file or database changes, and the said admin should act accordingly.
Are you telling me that this:
I modified mainly "includes/functions_posting.php" so that I can get custom e-mail notifications every time something is posted. I only have a very small amount of messages (2 or 3 per months) but I want to be able to reply to them ASAP... so there's no way I will manually check everyday for new posts. I tried a few things in the past (like subscribing to all I can), and other tricks/plugins a long time ago, and then I gave up, so for the last 5 years, I've used this hack I've made myself and it's exactly what I need. Yet, it's been a while since I've looked for a more "native" way to do it, so if you have a better idea, I would be glad to hear it
Have you considered using your vast experience to implement this feature yourself?
Sadly, I don't have enough time for that (I already have many projects), but I wish I could so that I could give back to this community (I have been using phpBB for about 10 years!).
