4 out of 5 sites updated & it was eazy-peazy smooth. although only one update didnt like that i had deleted the RPC directory. so i uploaded the RPC dir, and diagnostics stoped complaining.

Good to hear the upgrades went smoothly.

You can usually stop Diagnostics complaining about RPC if you turn off Enable XML-RPC server? in Prefs[Admin].

Hi,

Updated a website from 4.5.7 and all goes well (i had only changed plugin zem_contact to com_connect).

Thanks for the hard work.

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.5 released: bug fixes & improvements

I have just upgraded all my Textpattern-powered websites smoothly.

  1. az.on.lt with no plugins 4.8.4 → 4.8.5 on PHP 8.0.3
  2. m.on.lt with no plugins 4.8.3 → 4.8.5 on PHP 8.0.3
  3. on.lt with 3 plugins 4.8.4 → 4.8.5 on PHP 7.4.16
  • HTTP server — Hiawatha 10.12,
  • database — MariaDB 10.1.48 (MySQL 5.5.5), and
  • OS: Debian 9.13 (Linux 4.9) — the same for all.

Thank you all very much!

Just updated Wandering Sardinia and Wandering Italy and all went well. After things settled a bit, the problem I had with rss titles has gone away. Thanks for fixing that.

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.5 released: bug fixes & improvements

Once again, I win the silliest bug award for plugging an argument into a wrong function. This line should be

    $articles = parseList($rs, $thisarticle, 'populateArticleData', compact('allowoverride', 'thing') + array('form' => $fname));

Failing this, override forms will not work in article lists in 4.8.5.

Sincerely sorry, my eyes start playing tricks on me.

Ahh, that might be what I saw when upgrading one site :-( “override form” is used sparingly over there. I immediately reverted to 4.8.4 as I did not have time to investigate and even less time to attempts fixing the site.

Which begs the question, maybe there is a need to advertise more, or rather more in detail, what goes into those patch releases. not everybody is well versed in reading abstract PHP code…

I apologize. The history file is rather complete in describing the 4.8.5 changes. There is nothing specifically concerning override forms, it’s just a silly bug that could have broken anything else as well.

So can we expect a quick 4.8.6 bug-fix follow up (the ever lying feedreader told me about it) or do I better patch up 4.8.5 if I want to use that (PHP 8 fixes, and something) ?
