Update Question 3.0.8 -> 3.0.9

Post by Christy » Thu Jul 14, 2011 4:42 pm

Hello,

Well I'm definitely wanting to update to the newest version but the style I use on my site (Absolution) is built for phpBB 3.0.8. I'm wondering, should I wait for the style to be updated by the author before I update my site or would it be better to update now and when the 3.0.9 version comes out update my style after.

Another option is to do the Code Changes yourself.

So is it best to update the style first and then do the update to the real phpBB board or vice versa?

I personally would switch to one of the default styles, carry out the update and check that everything is good with that then update your style but it's a matter of personal choice.

If I leave the style un-updated until the author releases the new update would it be OK or could it break the forum?

it won't break anything and there is nothing I found that is critcal for right away.

the author of that style is pretty good about keeping his styles up to date so you wan't have to wait long.
