Still, it's not a document that concentrates on what's changed from 3.0 to 3.1

There really is a need for such a document, if anyone has the time....

Unfortunately, while those documents are very interesting to me (because I do make changes to the code), they are still not useful to a non-technical admin who simply wants to know, for instance, why she no longer gets emails to approve new registrations.

Approval by admin is the only one that does that. That hasn't changed.

Notification of new accounts only happened in 3.0 with 'by admin'. That hasn't been changed. There isn't a setting to turn it off.

You don't seem to understand the issue. Read the thread I linked carefully.

Your posting all over the place about your issue :) it would probably help others help you better if you started a new topic in the support forum and not on someone else s topic or in phpbb discussion . :)

That's not "my issue". That's resolved, but the fact remains it would never have been an issue with proper documentation. Ok, point made (I hope). I'm out of this thread.

I had a bit of a delay in doing the upgrade from 3.0.12, and during that delay 3.1.1 came out.

But I did the upgrade today, and it was smooth as glass. Having run Betas and RCs, I even had my custom style ready for 3.1x.

Thanks for a great product, folks.

I downloaded the latest phpbb3 version and automod, but I was unable to get automod working on this version. lots of files from the 'includes' folder were missing ?

Where did you get the AutoMOD for phpBB 3.1 from?

3.1 uses extensions, not MODs. You just upload them to the right folder and activate them in the admin panel. No core code changes should be necessary, hence no autoMOD for 3.1,

And if our host won't upgrade, what are our options?
How long will the older version be supported?
