My site is not working after upgrading to wpForo 2.0.1 today. I firstly tried disabling the plugins and that seems to have fixed it but I don't know which of the plugins caused the issue because I disabled all of them. Do you know of any incompatibilities?

Also to be clear, the site is up and working at the moment without my purchased addons so it isn't the end of the world but I'd like to fix soon if we can.

This is the error I get with plugins enabled.

 

The plugins I own are:

  1. wpForo Ads Manager
  2. wpForo Embeds
  3. wpForo Giphy
  4. wpForo Private Messages

@emma I believe the issue you are having is because you need to upgrade your add-ons, as the old ones will not work with WPForo 2.0.

When you purchase the new versions you get a discount which is worthy in my humble opinion.

So either run WPForo with no addons, and you'll be fine, purchase all the new versions of the addons that you have in use on your site, or just revert to the old 1.X version of the forum.

 

PS: Please know that you may only revert to the old version of WPForo from 2.0 IF you saved a backup of your databases before you upgraded.

@eli Thank you! I had no idea that the plugins wouldn't automatically update. Do they announce when new versions come out or do you constantly have to check? Most of mine were really old like 1.0 and 1.0.1 from when I first launched my site a few years back and I've been dutifully paying every year.

Oh, do they not auto update. I just renewed in Feburary. Let me see if manual downloads are available.

@emma these are major new versions of the addons, so no, they will not auto update. When you purchase a WPForo addon it will keep updating until a new major version is released, at which point you will need to re-purchase if you want the new features.

However, please notice that your addons will NOT stop working, they will just not update to a major new version for free.

In this case, you want to upgrade (or already upgraded) a major new version of WPForo, so your addons will not work with the 2.X version as your purchased addons are for the 1.X version of WPForo.
