That has been updated.  That is because at the time, the Admin Center was not updated OR 2.2.3 was not classified as a stable version

WOW!

I am just amazed! - I checked and sure enough - my 'issue' fixes are in there!  LOL and I was just getting ready to learn WinCVS all over again. (I wanted to get my Global Mod fixes in)  I'm still gonna get up to speed on it. I'll probably be needing it  Smiley

I am totally awed by the build speed, even if its a 'minor upgrade'.

Thanks to all the coders; development team; and the documentation t-crossers, i dotters! and non-sequitur catchers; and everyone else that helped make it possible.

Did I say Wow?  Shocked

Cool <-- Happy Camper
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Ok I downloaded the boardmod...
where do i find the "Update" package???? It is mentioned on the download page but it seems I can only download the CGI or PL files...
Why am I so confused?


Description of releases
CGI: This is the full YaBB package with the YaBB executable as a ".cgi" file. Some servers only allow this file extension for executables.
PL: This is the same full YaBB package as the above, but the executable has a ".pl" extension, which some people prefer.
Update: This is the mod package that you can use with Boardmod to upgrade an existing YaBB forum. It is not a full package.

Can you upgrade to this version from YaBB 2.1 or will I need to do all the upgrade inbetween?

Also where do I find the upgrade mod? The link above only gives the download for the full package.

You don't have to do all versions in between.

There is no mod, you need the installation zip for the full package.  Instructions for upgrading

Ahh, so you're just replace files. Probably best for me to not do it then as I have a lot of mods installed on my forum.

So it's less confusing, I've updated the descriptions on the downloads page to be more consistent with how releases have come out lately.

Quote:
"YaBB_XXX.zip":
This is a compressed folder of several files, which can be unzipped on a Windows machine. This contains the full YaBB package with the YaBB executables as a ".pl" Perl file. This can be used to upgrade ANY PREVIOUS version of YaBB as well. If your server only allows the ".cgi" extension, you can rename AdminIndex.pl to AdminIndex.cgi and YaBB.pl to YaBB.cgi.

"YaBB_XXX.tar.gz:
This is a compressed folder of several files, which can be uncompressed and untarred on a Linux or Unix machine. This contains the full YaBB package with the YaBB executables as a ".pl" Perl file. This can be used to upgrade ANY PREVIOUS version of YaBB as well. If your server only allows the ".cgi" extension, you can rename AdminIndex.pl to AdminIndex.cgi and YaBB.pl to YaBB.cgi.

Update ".zip" or ".tar.gz": If available, this is a compressed folder of modification files. The included ".mod" file is the modification package that you can use with Boardmod to upgrade an existing YaBB forum. It is not a full package.
