Hi - any opinions on upgrading from 7.5 to 7.8 or 7.9?

Just wondering if 7.9 has any problems or should I stick with 7.8 until there is more feedback / testing?

My feeling is to go ahead with 7.9 just looking for some feedback from anyone who has upgraded to 7.9 ?

ok, I dont really see any real difference in switching to 7.9.

I would recomend leaving your site as it is, I mean if its all running smoothly then why change?

Ensure your forums are nice and up to date (2.0.17) and you should be absolutely fine.

I hope this helps!

there are theme concerns, and some other issues.
i would recommend setting up a test site to work through the bugs.

when i performed the upgrade from 7.6 to 7.9 i had a series of issues that i had to work through

including news articles not dispalying properly, and not showing images
banners no longer working (still trying to fix)
sidebar disapeard.

anywho.. there are many thigns you might have issues with, but they are not impossible to get around.
you should just do it in test first.

7.9 still has bugs to work out, I do not recommend it at this point.
chatserv has fixed many with the Patched files, but I believe there are more to be found. FB's untested code is so sloppy

Thanks for the replies and the heads up - much appreciated!

I have a few modifications that makes it a pain to upgrade - will focus on 7.8 and run it offline till mods are complete.

Stick with 7.6 for now.

I have held off upgrading - I have an offline version running 7.8 and it seems to be fine. ( ran the security fixes from nuke resources) - still looking for a new theme.

One more question is the WISIWYG feature a major security issue? And is it still an issue if you turn it off? - Thanks
