I have two different installs, both running 7.1. One is mine and is a upgrade from 7, the other site is my uncle's and has been upgraded over the pass couple of years, every time there's an update from 4.2.  I can set the delivery priority in my Adminzone / tools / newsletter / Send out issue, however it doesn't even show the priority option in his.  I'm not ure how to fix this. Can someone advise me?

I immediately checked my own, chipster. Same as yours.

Is it possible your uncle's updates, somewhere along the line, skipped a beat and that he still has an override in place that is killing off the 'priority' function in his current installation?

Hi Fletch, I'm sure it is something like that, and in fact the first thing that came to my mind.  However, I'm at a loss as to how to fix it.

A file integrity check with the upgrader ought to throw up any anomalies, although I suspect you've already visited that.

The only other thing that springs to mind, as I've had to do in the past, is to 'manually' check all my '_custom' folders and files to see if there is stuff in there that is still current or necessary, or indeed whether they are overriding an update.

Sorry I can't suggest a magic-wand fix for this one!

I know, I've even re-uploaded the newsletter.php file from the current version… I did do a file check and there's quite a number of files left over from what I'm assuming v4, I've just been afraid to delete them.  I suppose i could wait till late, when there wouldn't normally be anyone visiting his site that way if something went wrong I'd have time to fix it.  I've downloaded the newest zip so I'd have the files.  I really guess that's what I should try first.

Well, that needed doing.  did a file integrity scan and it showed 219 files left over that reported were ok to delete. I did that. remove al custom files from every custom direcotry, even uploaded all the temem files from the newest zip, replace every newsletter type file I could find with onesfrom the most current zip, and still no luck.  Still looking and trying everything I know to try and some I don't.  Still no luck though.  Afraid this one has me stumped.

Will say that it is giving me a new respect for Chris and the gang.  There's a ton of files that make up this app.  Just the fact that they all work together to begin with is amazing…

I'm clean out of ideas or suggestions, Chip. May take an intervention by the staff to sort this one for you. Sorry.

Hmmm, I remember a long time back using ocCLE to input a command. Thinking that could be the culpert I did a search for that post.  I used a command to run off flash uploads, but I don't think that should be doing it.

There's an option "Enable interest levels" which probably defaults to off now.
