Advice and Upgrade Notes

  • If you are having problems after upgrading, make sure to disable all plugins and then re-enable each plugin one by one to make sure the problem isn’t being caused by a plugin.
  • If you see “MISSING_DEFAULT_STRING”, it means that no “translation” was found for a string in en-message.php This is most likely caused by either a missing translation string or a missing en-message.php file for a plugin. Please check with your plugin’s authors if they have included that translation file or add it yourself.
  • If you have references to “$this->url” in your navigation related code,you should probably change it into “$this->uri()”. That should fix potential problems with highlighting the active page in your menu for example.
