There are areas in xF which need attention but the software is young so it's OK however THIS is not something I'm impressed with at all. I followed the upgrade instructions and only downloaded the upgrade files from my user area.
A couple of specific questions:
1) Why does upgrading reset ALL edited files throughout xF?
2) Why does upgrading reset ALL language phrases?
1) Surely there must be an easier way to upgrade templates which I might have not seen. I realise that's what EXTRA.css is there for, however it still seems like a very backwards way.
Another reason for me to move to IPB.
edit: rant not justified. Apologies to all. The problem was not with the upgrade but with the way I started out with editing and was more template related. I actually much prefer handling files and don't like using built in editors, call me old fashioned.
