Unless I've missed something somewhere I don't see why upgrading to a small release 1.1.3 -> 1.1.4 resets every addon setting and more or less destroys my forum. I've spent the last 2 hours redoing everything. 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? Templates 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. /rant over. 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.
