Rollback from 3.2?

Post by mactac » Tue Jan 24, 2017 11:50 pm

So when I upgraded to 3.2, I had a host of things stop working, including my Style, which is not ocmpatible with 3.2. I've put countless hours into customizing the style, and don't want to start again from a new style or from scratch.

Is there a way to roll back to 3.1, or am I stuck with redoing everything?

Restore the backups that you made before the upgrade - you did take backups didn't you?

At some point atm dec 2017. phpBB 3.1 will reach it's end of life and you will have to do all of these changes anyway. This will go on and on, new updates, more work ugrading your alterations, KISS

The main issue here is not reading the available information before going ahead with a major upgrade.
