Subject: Icy Phoenix 2.0 RC 1
Hi all,

Old templates: please note that the template system has been totally revamped, so templates designed for Icy Phoenix 1.3.0.53 or below won't work at all with this version. At the moment apart of the styles included in the installation package only proSilver is available over GIT: Icy Phoenix Styles @ GIT.


Translations: please note that lang packs for Icy Phoenix 1.3.0.53 won't work with this version. Lang packs need to be updated before you can use them on your site. I will update all lang files in download section as soon as translators will send me their latest release. You can find latest development translations here: Icy Phoenix Languages @ GIT.


Customizations And Mods: please note that this version has many core code differences from the previous one, so it is really unlikely that old customizations and mods will work on this beta release. If you currently have some mods installed and you cannot update them on your own, you should be aware that you will not able to use those old mods until someone is going to update them.


Requirements
Before trying to install Icy Phoenix make sure you have the following STRICTLY NEEDED requirements:
  • At least 20 MB of free space in the folder you would like to install the package
  • Web server with PHP (5.2 or higher) installed and running (works best on Linux + Apache)
  • MySQL (5 or higher) database with at least 5MB of free space (of course the space needed depends on how big your site will be... 5MB is enough for a basic empty setup)
  • Ability to set CHMOD permissions

These other requirements (even if not strictly needed) are suggested for optimal performance of Icy Phoenix:
  • Webserver with .htaccess capability
  • Apache Rewrite Mod installed and running
  • GD Libraries (at least 2.0.28) installed and running
  • Register Globals set to OFF

  1. Unpack Icy Phoenix package to one folder on your HD.
  2. Copy all Icy Phoenix files in one folder on your webserver (i.e. /icyphoenix/)

    • logs/

  5. Copy all new Icy Phoenix files into your root

  9. Launch install/database_update.php and update your DB
  10. Delete or rename install folder

First of all i want thank you all again for your Excellent Work.
Icy Phoenix is the Best CMS ever made.

Secondly i want to confirm that all old Styles are working just fine with new version without BUGs or some minor bugs which are very hard to see them.
In my Site right now i have 30 Skins of the older version working just fine and you can see them Here (www.diadoseto.gr)

The only trick i made to make them work just fine was to copy the common.css from the old version IP on /templates/default folder.
Now all of 30 skins used are working fine.
With this trick with any clean install of Icy Phoenix 2.0 RC 1 (First Time install) you can use all the older version of Skins.

I know that this is not a fix but until all skins recoded for the new templates, is a solution for all those need to Upgrade right now without loose their current skins.

I also found many bugs on IP and Plugins, and i will help this nice community to fix them ASAP.
My Site must open at 01/06/2012, so i must hurry a bit... :mrorange: :mrorange:

Thanks again for your work and soon will have news also from me regarding the Translation for Greek Language.

And 1 small problem with the download database (pafiledb) is that i can't write some special characters, which are often used in hungarian words, e.g á é í ó ö ő ú ü ű. When I write one of these in a category or download's name, it simply writes ? marks instead of the characters.


Thanks for fixing it. But it also happens at the name of the Download Database, blocks, and link names, etc.

Another thing: when i want to add/edit a menu or a menuitem, it says:
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]

Make sure you are using last GIT version and confirm that you still have those issues.

Subject: Re: Icy Phoenix 2.0 RC 1
Hello MG
I want to ask you if it is safe to do what the user "lostanimal" suggested,
in order to make use of all the old templates even in this new BETA version

Profile PM  
Subject: Re: Icy Phoenix 2.0 RC 1
it is perfectly safe. you can also open your file my_skin.css and update the beginning instead (safer):
Code: [Download] [Hide]
  1. @import url("../common/common.css"); 
  2. @import url("../common/common_dropdown.css"); 
  3. @import url("../common/common_colors.css"); 
  4. @import url("../common/fap.css"); 


great release MG. Very good work.

Edit: May I suggest that Lighting becomes the new default template of Icy Phoenix ? (or at least is incorporated in the default package). It would be really appreciated to be able to start working on a fresh forum with a decent template, and not a simple blank template.
