Member notes feature

If you were using the "notes" feature of OCF, and need member notes back, add a new custom profile field, note down it's ID number (identifiable from the edit URL for the CPF) and run this in OcCLE:


:$GLOBALS['SITE_DB']->query('UPDATE ocp_f_member_custom_fields f LEFT JOIN ocp_f_members m ON SET field_<fieldid>=m_notes');
(where <fieldid> is the ID number)

Personal Zone

The Personal Zone / Account zone no longer exists, as this is integrated into member profiles. You may need to delete the links from your zone menu, if you have one.
