Upgrading from 0.1.7 to 0.1.8¶
When upgrading to mm_forum version 0.1.8, there are a few things you have to notice:
- Profile field handling. Since the handling of profile fields changed rapidly in the new version, you will need to update your template files, if you have modified them. Affected are the templates for user registration, the public profile view and the user editing form. Just use the default templates that are distributed together with the extension if you are unsure.
- Caching. Note that some things are cached now. This affects mainly components requiring extensive database queries, like for example access control. The mm_forum caching interface is hooked into the internal TYPO3 cache. So, if you change something that might affect access permissions (changing read, write or moderation access to a forum or a category, or adding or removing a user from a group), remember to clear your cache by using the regarding button in the TYPO3 backend.
