Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 released

A great way to start off the new year, thanks!

Can anyone remind me how to stop the “A new Textpattern version (4.8.8) has been installed” message from appearing on each page load? I was on the v4.8.8-dev branch and have moved back to the main branch.

Force-reload once or twice should do it to be sure the updated js is loaded.

Thanks, I’ve tried this and also using a private window, but still seeing the message. If I move back to the v4.8.8.-dev branch the messages goes away.

Clear your browser cache and that should fix it.

Try to load the site in the Tor browser. it clears all data by default.

Thanks all. I’ve tried a totally new browser, in private mode, but the banner still persists.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 released

All very strange. I updated two sites this morning. I got the ‘New version is installed’ message, I refreshed to clear the cache and the message went away. Things to check:

  • Does High Diagnostics show anything interesting/unexpected?
  • What does your database show in the txp_prefs table under the ‘version’ key name?
  • Have all files definitely been uploaded and replaced?

Thanks Stef! That’s the issue – it’s saying version 4.9.0-dev, I guess I’ve switched to this branch at some point (probably accidentally) and then switched back. I’ve changed this to 4.8.8 and the notice is gone.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 released

Ah yeah, that’ll be it. Once a database has been “upgraded” there’s no easy way for us to figure out that’s happened if you downgrade, so it requires manual tomfoolery like you did to alter the version string.

If you’ve gone to dev and rolled back by just tweaking the version string, you may find a bunch of other things go sideways, so keep an eye out. You might be alright for now, because we’ve not done much database wrangling yet (beyond a few prefs tweaks) but some changes in 4.9.0 aren’t going to be backwards compatible with 4.8.x.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 released

Moved three sites to 4.8.8 today. One high traffic with thousands of pages, one a low traffic single pager, one with a dozen or so pages.

All went well, and two of the sites now running PHP 8.1.

Thank you to the developers.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 released

Upgraded two TxP-powered websites smoothly, thanks gods — our devs! Both sites from Textpattern v4.8.7, MySQL 5.5.5 (MariaDB 10.1.48), PHP still 8.0.3, HTTP server: Hiawatha 10.12, OS: Linux 4.9 (Debian 9.13). One site with oui_player and tru_tags, another with no plugins.
