Link to my forum: http://www.wizlair.net/ & http://www.firehawkgames.biz
SMF version: 2.0.18
TP version: 2.1.0
Default Forum Language: English
Theme name and version: CleanTek by Crip
Browser Name and Version: Opera and Chrome
Mods installed: TinyPortal, Stop Spammer, Askimet Spam Blocking
Related Error messages: no error message


Both forums suggest that I should update to SMF 2.0.19, but before I do so, I want to know if I should uninstall TinyPortal, and then reinstall it

Also, if I decide to update to SMF 2.1 RC4 (or 5), should I uninstall TinyPortal before doing that?

I am asking before I move forward because I have, in the past, so severely broken SMF that I actually had to move to another forum software for while (a few years actually before I was ready to come back -- which obviously meant coming back to TinyPortal as well, cause I I cannot do SMF without TinyPortal!!!!!)

And I really want to avoid that!

TinyPortal hasn’t modified any of the sections the 2.0.19 update details with so should just be able to update.

Regarding SMF2.1 that will uninstall all mods when you upgrade so you just need to install TinyPortal again and it’ll all work again. TinyPortal on SMF2.1 makes no code modifications and is only hooks based so should mean any future SMF 2.1 update has no chance of being impacted by it.
