XF 1.2 Upgrading from 1.2 Beta 3 to 1.2 RC 2


Well-known member
I wonder what is the right method to do the upgrade? Is here a guide somewhere?

I also want to note, that I am translating XenForo to my language and I want to make sure I am not going to loose the translation with upgrading to the newest version. So what to do to make it smooth and succesful? Should I export .xml language file before I do that? I doubt it, as I guess there will be new phrases in RC 2 and that just won't work for a higher XF version.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks Brogan, hopefully everything goes well. I don't see there a guide to update customisations, add-ons, translations, is here a guide for that too?

Updating a translation is a case of just translating any new phrases and then exporting and importing it as required.

The same process for add-ons although code changes may also be required.

For customisations/template edits, you have a few options in 1.2: you can either edit the templates and use the merge function or you can create an add-on and attach your template edits to that using the TM feature.

Style Properties and EXTRA.css will continue to function as before.
