[Solved] wpForo 2.0 major release | Be ready to lose forum CSS, template customizations and start using new layouts and styles
I saw new release of Wpforo 184.108.40.206 today. Its explanation says that this is the pre-update of V2.0. Big updated version is in few days later. I have expected long time for this update. So, I am very happy and excited after this news. I hope its new properties satisfy our expectations. Thank you to Wpforo team for all their efforts. You are the best 👍
Why not wait until THIS site is updated and then see everything clearly.
Also people that run medium to large sites, should never update right away in anything that contains so many drastic changes.
The old "Classic" wpForo theme will no longer be supported, so all customizations will be lost for sure
You said before that users upgrading to v. 2 were going to have the option to either retain the "old" layout (and preserve their customizations) or move to the "new" layout (and lose their customizations).
When did this change?
This was a disaster on my site when it auto updated today — all the add ons deactivated and when I tried to reactivate them they caused an internal server error and crashed the site. Attachments stopped displaying and attaching. New topics couldn't post. I had to reinstall a back up from 8/2 and I turned off auto updates for wpforo and am just going to site pretty on the classic version.
I can explain my impression about the new interface so as follows: It is more modern but more complicated because of plain white weighted appearence. It must be a little more colourfull to distinguish the forum parts.
