Finally I'm about ready to upgrade. I was going to do it just now, but the advice to take a backup first, hit home. So after I get the backup (which can take several hours) I'll start the upgrade.
I have some questions about the info on the SMF mod site
1 -- In the red text at the top, it says
A previous version of TP 1.0 removed the downloads and images directory which will remove needed files for your site.
I don't understand the relevance of that, or what it has to do with upgrading. I don't know if I ever had version 1.0 of TP.
2 -- Regarding the first red "Important" note, about not using the editor to make changes to any TP articles which were pre-existing to 1.5.1 -- geez, to be honest, it kind of makes me want to switch my TP articles to my SMF Articles mod system.
But anyway, when it says not to use the editor, what if we wanted to change something like the Viewing Options? We can edit the article itself using a text editor. But there are a lot of other options in the editor, and I don't think those can be changed with a local text editor.
Or is the new editor very different and doesn't have those options anymore?
3 -- About 1.5.1 being responsive and pressing Ctrl + f5. Do you only have to do that if you have a responsive theme? Or do you have to do that no matter what kind of theme? What about members and visitors - do they have to press Ctrl + f5 too?
Thanks for your help
