We're running DotNetNuke 5.6.2 right now, they've had 5.6.3 out for sometime, but I've been waiting for 6.0 to be released and confirmed it's stable.

6.0 is stable and we're gonna try updating to that now. Apparently it's not as easy as one would think.

If the site is down, this is why. I've done the upgrade on PackersBeta.com no problem, but when I tried PackersHome.com it failed, miserably.

I'm going to run some more testing, trial by fire on SilentShouting.com in the mean time. If things go well, I'll try this site, again.

Okay, we're upgraded to DotNetNuke 6.0 now. You probably won't notice much, except the site will be slower for a day or so. Then it'll be back to it's normal speed.

I have a bug to mention since the update.. at times, mostly when in sub-forums or within a thread, the title menu buttons (see attachment) disappear.

Running Win 7 .. FF 5.0

I've noticed that too, it's kind of funny. When I first seen it, I thought, wtf, am I going crazy? I hit refresh and they came back.

I'm not sure what happened there, hoping the new YetAnotherForum release fixes that too. Although that's a core issue, not a module.

Thanks, I mentioned this to the forum module developers and they have a fix for it already. It's just getting them to release the damn thing that's the hang up!!

After 2 or 3 failures i decided to do this. I was heading over here to let everyone know this and Pack93 is miles ahead of me. Of course if he would use the "Insert Image" icon we wouldn't have this problem.

Yup. Much better. That was my main complaint that I was too lazy and/or not bitchy enough to complain about.

Keep up the good work, Zero. =d>

Nope, the source of the issues is the forums. We have to get that updated then we'll see improvements.


This update was just minor. Not sure what it even did.

I take that back. The popup login is still just as much of a pain in the ass as the old way.

I have FireFox set to delete cookies every time it closes, so let's say I bring up PackersHome in a new browsing session, and find something I want to respond to in a topic.

I click "Login" at the top of the screen, and it brings up the popup. It doesn't remember my user name, because cookies were cleared last time I closed FireFox. Usually no problem, since FireFox will offer to remember my name and password for most sites. On this site, that dialog never opens for some reason, so I have to type in get_louder_at_lambeau (the underscores because spaces aren't allowed are kind of a pain too) and my password, if I remember which version of my standard lower security password I had to use to satisfy the password requirements of this site.

Then it kicks me out of not only the topic I was trying to post in, but the whole Packers section of the forum. So I have to go back into the Packers section and hope I remember which topic I was in, scroll down to find the post I wanted to quote and respond to, and then I'm finally ready to post.

Just giving some constructive feedback on a pet peeve that wastes a little of my time every time I post on this site. I know it sounds bitchy, but that's why.
