    Introduction

    Despite announcing that I am putting development of esoTalk on hold , I decided to put out a release fixing many of the bugs with 1.0.0g1.

    esoTalk 1.0.0g2 is beta software. It is unfinished, unstable, and buggy. Do NOT use it in a production environment.

    So, what's fixed?

    A full list of issues closed can be viewed on GitHub . Notable fixes include:

    • Reworked notifications, fixing various bugs and annoyances. #9 #18
    • Ability to edit channel slugs. #55
    • Option to hide member list from guests. #41
    • Various fixes to the conversation timeline. #16 #25 #26
    • Added a "Report a bug" plugin which adds a link to the footer.

    Where can I download it?

    Download esoTalk 1.0.0g2: http://get.esotalk.org

    How do I upgrade?

    1. Download above file and extract.
    2. Upload and overwrite all esoTalk files on your server.
    3. Visit http://yoursite.com/forum/index.php/upgrade in your web browser.
    4. Enjoy!
  2. In order to properly upgrade, you would have to also drop the "Activity" table in the database and run the following SQL through phpMyAdmin (change et_activity if you're using a different prefix):

    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `et_activity` (
      `activityId` int(11) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
      `type` varchar(255) default NULL,
      `memberId` int(11) unsigned NOT NULL,
      `fromMemberId` int(11) unsigned default NULL,
      `data` tinyblob,
      `conversationId` int(11) unsigned default NULL,
      `postId` int(11) unsigned default NULL,
      `time` int(11) unsigned default NULL,
      `read` tinyint(1) default '0',
      PRIMARY KEY  (`activityId`),
      KEY `activity_memberId` (`memberId`),
      KEY `activity_time` (`time`),
      KEY `activity_type` (`type`),
      KEY `activity_conversationId` (`conversationId`),
      KEY `activity_postId` (`postId`),
      KEY `activity_read` (`read`)
    ) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=2 ;

    On a different note, there's an issue on Firefox with the reply textbox not properly resizing/expanding, which causes it to hide text.

    And may I also suggest taking a look at Shidianxia's previous fork for implementing Channels and URLs using Unicode? (cf. RFC 3986 Uniform Resource Identifier standards)

    @Hakaku In order to properly upgrade, you would have to also drop the "Activity" table in the database and run the following SQL through phpMyAdmin

    The upgrade script (step 3 of "How do I upgrade" above) should take care of adding columns without losing any data. Did it not work for you?

    I'll take a look at that issue and fork. I've also fixed a few bugs since I released 1.0.0g2 yesterday—perhaps I'll release g3 within a few days.

    Ah, I feel stupid now, I somehow managed to completely miss out on that step -.- But even still, appending index.php/upgrade doesn't seem to work for me, I get a "Page Not Found" error message. (Unless this is expected behaviour when everything seems up-to-date, since I had manually changed some things)
