The currently installed version of LifeType is:
So I have to upgrade? I have lifetype on a godaddy server, being used in an iframe to make it fit in with the style and navigation bars of the site. The release notes say I can upgrade only from 1.2.9, since I am running 1.2.8, can I upgrade or must I do a complete wipe and install to get this upgrade? My client will have a FIT if I have to do this! How do I upgrade at this point?
Second, I tried to install the smilie pluging. Although it is installed, I get no smile bar on the comment window and no matter where I paste that code for the common template, all I get is error messages on the comment page and no smilie bar. The plugin is still installed, I have yet to see it work, but I have finally given up on it.
The BIG issue now is spam. I installed two spam plugins, here is my plugin page:
(Sorry about the formatting)
Identifier Version Author Description Actions
akismet 20080228 Paul Westbrook (Akismet php library provided by Bret Kuhns) Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web serivce to see if they look like spam or not. Info
authimage 20100113 Mark Wu This plugin offers extra comment authentication for LifeType. Info
badbehavior 20080228 The Lifetype Project Bad Behavior for LifeType Info
smileys 20070226 The LifeType Project The plugin offer smileys to comments and articles. Info
- Akismet -Ddoes not actually appear to do anything at all. It does not show on any page and I still get tons of spam.
authimage - Shows NO image on the comment page or box to type in an answer. Whenever I enable it, no comments match the authimage because there is no image displayed on the comment page, nor is there a box to type in what you see.
badbehavior - I have no clue as to what this plugin does. It does not show up on the plugin settings page.
smilies - Does not work at all, although it is turned on, no smilie bar appears in comment page, no matter where I paste the code into the commentForm.template, I get error messages on the comment post page and no smilie bar. I have tried very hard to make this work and have pasted it in several places. Can you please give a "search for this text and replace or insert right after" like they do with PHPBB?
I need help, bad, with upgrading LifeType, how do I do it with my current version installed. I really need some sort of detailed instructions but I am not a total computer ignoramous. See my website here: http://www.paulspcworks.com/ This is NOT where LifeType is installed.
My LifeType can be seen here:
Please help me John, my client is about to have fits and conniptions about all of the spam. He cannot activate comments at all because I cannot get a single plugin to work with LifeType. Is it because my version is too old? How can I update it without losing all of the stuff that is there now?
I am at my wits end, please help me!
