Greetings TP Staff and Friends,

I setup my Tinyportal block positions in increments of 10 (10,20,30...) rather than increments of 1 (1,2,3...) so I can insert new blocks in between existing blocks without having to renumber their positions to place them correctly.

Upon upgrading to TP 2.2.1, all the block previous positions were renumbered in increments of 1 rather than leaving them in the same order I had them. This is really no big deal but if there was a way to keep them as they were when upgrading without significant work, it would helpful.

This is more of an FYI than a bug report. I just wanted to bring it to you attention. For all I know, this is expected behavior.

As usual, thank you for all the great work. I'm upgrading to SMF 2.1 soon and I'm so grateful to have an upgraded version of TP that will work on SMF after I upgrade.

Have a great week!
Mike Vail


Hi Mike,

This is expected behaviour now. As the block numbering logic was changed so it correctly moves blocks up and down.
