Problems
If you have this add-on installed - Comment Like - one of the queries from XF 1.5 Beta 1 will fail with the following error message displayed:
Code:
Uh oh, your upgrade to 1.5.0 has failed!

The following elements of the database are incorrect:

Column xf_profile_post_comment.message_state missing.
Column xf_profile_post_comment.likes missing.
Column xf_profile_post_comment.like_users missing.
Column xf_profile_post_comment.warning_id missing.
Column xf_profile_post_comment.warning_message missing.
This is likely caused by an add-on conflict. You may need to restore a backup, remove the offending add-on data from the database, and retry the upgrade. Contact support if you are not sure how to proceed.
See these threads/posts for more information and how to resolve it:
XF 1.5 - Unable to Like Profile Post Comments
Comment Like [Paid]


I'll keep this post updated with any relevant information.

@Brogan, could you maintain a list of addons that conflict in this thread? (The release post mentioned there could be conflicts). Would it also be useful to have an 'addons deprecated by 1.5' thread also?

It's not something I'll do, no.
I only use two third party add-ons so I'm not familiar with most of them.

You are free to update your own post and keep a tally there though.

Maybe Brogan can link your thread here.

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned but have any of the email templates been changed at all? I thought I remember seeing a bug/change regarding one of them(or I could be crazy :) )

Well, upgraded my dev site to XF 1.5 beta 2, out of 99 highly customized templates, only 2 could not be automatically merged. Both of those templates had to do with changing the new include template name in the sidebar (and that's because that template include I moved out of the sidebar) . That manual edit was very easy to make, :).

Great job on beta 2 guys.

  • Easy upgrade.... a few merges needed manual attention (styles: UI.X, Xenith) but nothing taxing.
  • I'm forcing SSL and I had to temporarily set my jquery source to "local". If I don't do that then somehow the installer accesses jquery via http instead of https which means you need to manually click "proceed" at every upgrade step (as it mixes secure and non secure content, breaking the page). This may just be me though, if so, I suspect caused by the pagespeed module.

I've successfully cloned my live board, updated it to XF 1.5 Beta 2, removed a few add-ons that 1.5 has built in and other than a few fusion gamer theme templates no other issues. I went through and tested all my add-ons, the new features and such and no errors were thrown at me.

Just to confirm it may be what you suspect, I have SSL forced and had no issues doing anything.
