Updating Files from 1.6 to 1.8
Thread starter

Since a lot of people have no idea what to do here is a simple tutorial.
I'll be doing it on Labrocca's Ficons plugin.

Locate the following file
public_html/inc/plugins/ficons.php

Note: ficons.php will be whatever file you need updated!

Edit the file and find compatibility and change it from 16* to 18*

On 1.6 (before)

On 1.8 (after)

Save the file and check in the ACP to make sure it's working.

Still not working?
In the case it doesn't edit all the files related to that plugin and add 18*.
Then it should work, I'll admit I had to do it with a few plugins.

Doesn't entirely work like that, otherwise there would be a lot more 1.8 files, I believe the database structure is also different aswell as the IENGINE and the MYENGINE.

It actually does. Well, for most or let's say a lot of plugins.
Plugins which are core-based (based on the mybb core files) will not work. Plugins which just add additional features, will mostly work.

He's basically covered it, about 85% (my opinion) will work with simply following this. I've rarely had an issue where I've had to do a little more.

Experienced the same. You only have to convert really big plugins like the vouch system we have around here. I was actually surprised Paytoview didn't need to get converted. (Credits to unlock files)

Interesting, I thought that would have needed to have edits done. The vouch system I've seen a few people crying about it not working.

Ah, my bad, I thought most of them changed the main-core files and such like the ficons, with the forum_depth1 thing and so on.

True but I prefer to keep it on a level that I know what version I'm running as I forget at times.

I didn't have time to fix it yet. It's not hard to fix it though I think. Just need to include javascript.
