Phrases get wiped on upgrade


Active member
I edited a phrase before I upgraded to the latest beta and the upgrade wipes out the phrase and re-installs the default one. Is there any way we can not do this?

Did you edit the Master Language? The master language is overwritten during an upgrade. But "regular" languages are not.

The master language is only accessible with debug mode enabled.


"We" had the same problem.

The edited phrases from my add-on were also lost on the upgrade. (Not the master language, it was a own language).
After the xenforo upgrade they were all set back to the master phrases

I did edit the master language so that was probably it. I have now edited the "english" language. Will report back here if it happens after the next upgrade.
