I had a 3.0.12, I followed the instructions on how to update from that to a 3.1.x board, and that's basically it.
Please describe your problem.
I am noticing that when trying to "Test user's permissions", I still retain my own user's (administrative) permissions. For example, I am able to edit my own posts and moderate others, even if testing out a regular user's permissions. Logging in as a regular user works just fine though, so it's not my actual permission settings, but the "test permissions" feature.
Furthermore the board index does nothing to show that I am testing our user XYZ's permissions (like the 3.0.x used to show me)
However I do have the "restore permissions" option available, and when trying to visit the ACP I am not allowed and told to restore permissions first. So the "test permissions" is doing *something*...just not what I would expect it to do, having used it successfully in the past (under the old version).
I am worried that this might be due to me updating from a 3.0.x version and that something might be causing issues. I did clear the cache and follow the update instructions properly, but this behaviour looks weird to me.
Note: I noticed an error when running install/database_update.php during version upgrade. I ran the file it again and the error did not re-occur. But now I'm a bit paranoid, and have no idea how to check whether the database is clean/has bad data
Thanks in advance!
