Your upgrade to version 8 RC3
If you'd prefer though you can enter in your version number right here:
All known bugs in RC2 have been fixed, as well as a number of usability improvements based on feedback from testers.
- v8 includes a new theme upgrader which will fix most issues with your themes. However some templates have changed. Most people have issues with changes they've made to the OCF_MEMBER_PROFILE_SCREEN.tpl template. A video tutorial explaining template upgrades has been created.
- The upgrader does not have a knowledge of non-bundled ocProducts addons, but it will flag them up as alien files. In particular, files relating to the old Facebook and Lightbox2 addons are incompatible and you should let the upgrader remove them if you have them. There is a much better v8 Facebook addon, and equivalent lightbox2 addon functionality is now core to ocPortal.
- Note about how to improve security after upgrading to version 8
- Note about comment topics from very old ocPortal sites (3 and under)
