Manual

Aardvark Topsites PHP 5.1.0 is a minor upgrade over version 5.0.x. Upgrading is supported for version 4.1.0 or higher. Here is a list of changes:
FEATURES
- When an edit form or join form has errors in it, the user is presented with inline error messages
- RSS feed of the top 10 sites (overall and by category) via feed.php
- New admin stuff:
- - Topical links to the manual for confusing options on the settings page
- - Google-friendly links can be disabled
- - Option to email admin when a new review is posted
- - Custom pages: easily add static content to integrate with your topsites (FAQ, rules, etc.)
- - Profanity filter
- - Overall stats displayed on main page
BUG FIXES
- More robust in non-standard environments (no <?=, handles weird files in languages dir)
- Major performance increase in rankings.php for lists with lots of sites per page
- Hits in from search engines are filtered to prevent cheating
- Language list is ordered alphabetically
- Minor skin tweaks
- When a category name is edited, sites currently in that category are moved to the edited category
- Categories containing ampersands (&) work correctly
- Admin does not allow you to delete the last category
- Minor search improvements (UI and sorting)
- When users join lists that require admin approval, they are warned that they will not be listed immediately
- Uses preg_replace_callback() instead of preg_replace() to speed up skin parsing
- - 10% faster skin parsing results in 1% faster overall script execution
- Got rid of g and 9 in the captcha because they look the same in the default font

The beta version was released about 3 weeks ago and was downloaded over 1000 times, so hopefully this final version will be stable. Any feedback is appreciated.

Yay!

Thank so much Jeremy, I know you only referred to this as a minor upgrade, but some of those features are really quite a major improvement.

Congratulations and keep up the amazing work.

to upgrade from the rc to final, just upload the .php files except settings_sql.php. if you want more specifics...

http://svn.berlios.de/wsvn/atsphp/?rev=96&sc=1 lists every file that changed between the rc and final, although many of the changes were purely superficial.

http://svn.berlios.de/wsvn/atsphp?op=co ... %5D=%2F@96 tells you exactly what code was changed between the rc and final. isn't version control cool?

Is it me or i cant find upgrade instruction from version 5.0.3 to version 5.1.0.
On the help file the last upgrade info is only from version 5.0.2?
Do i need to replace all files (without templates) or just some of the files?
If not all then what files need to be replaced?

Thanks

EDIT

Please ignore it.I found already.
You need only to put rate_email_admin.html inside classic skins because it is only inside fusion skins.

deny: thanks for letting me know about the missing file. i fixed it now.

basti: there are no known security vulnerabilities in 5.0.3, so you should be ok using that.

I get this error when trying to open the admin panel

flashbax: start a new topic in the support forum including more detail, such as your url and any error messages that you got when upgrading.
