Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.2 released

Thanks! All upgraded fine. Except one. I didn’t check to see what version it was before upgrading because I thought it was fairly recently upgraded. I’m sure it’s my fault (with outdated plugins) but I wondered is there a way to check what the previous version was, or is it too late?

There’s a version string in the database – check the txp_prefs table, then look for the row where name column is version and the val column will give you a number. So, check your backup – should be listed there.

Not so much 4.8.2 as upgrades in general

Zero’s comment has me thinking (I apologize in advance – always dangerous). There is another thread today where an upgrade was thrown because of an outdated plugin. I know over the years that outdated plugins are often the grief in upgrades.

Perhaps there is value (less grief, fewer support issues) if during the upgrade there was a way for all plugins to be automatically turned off, then once the upgrade was successful there was a friendly “one last step – enable all plugs” button.

Bonus if it only re-enabled compatible plugins based on the new plugin website.

Just thinking aloud. Again – often a dangerous tangential and unhelpful thing. :)

In my case it was soo_if_frontpage which if turned off would be a mess. I updated it and it worked OK, so not much of a problem. Another problem was listform="snippet" which must have been the way back in the day. I don’t know when it was changed but form="snippet" worked fine. That’s what you get when you don’t update a site for years. It needs quite a few changes to be up to scratch, although it’s all working OK now.

Fantastika!
