ocPortal 8 RC5 released

ocPortal 8 RC5 released Version 8 RC5 has now been released. This is the fifth release candidate for ocPortal 8. Upgrading is not recommended for live sites.

Your upgrade to version 8 RC5

You can generate an upgrader from any version of ocPortal to any other version. If you access this upgrade post via the version information box on your Admin Zone front page then we'll automatically know what version you're running.
If you'd prefer though you can enter in your version number right here:

(example above is for upgrading from 4.3.2 beta1)


All known bugs in RC4 have been fixed.

Release notes:
  • 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)
  • If you have the default 'Recommend site' link on your menus, it should be deleted before upgrading because the page-link format is no longer compatible with v8. Alternatively you can simplify down the page-link, leaving it just as :recommend. If you have upgraded and get a Tempcode error on your front page, you can manually solve it:
