        any links on how to upgrade our installs to Evolution? thanks smiley
        As AMDbuilder said, it’s just a standard upgrade like any previous upgrades from MODx. Backup everything first, upload your files, copy your config file to the new Manager directory and run the installer in upgrade mode (which it will default to since it detects the upgrade). Should take less than 2 minutes.

          • I have followed the "Alternate Method" of upgrading as described in the wiki, so I have already copied all of the custom snippets, etc., into the new version and copied them over to the server.

            Now I’m running the upgrade. Do I tick the boxes to install/update the snippets that I have already copied into the new distro, or will this rewrite everything I’ve done?

            The snippets in question are Wayfinder, eForm, ajaxSearch, and WebLoginPE

            Thanks smiley

            On edit: I got to thinking about it, and figured that the only place the install would be able to find anything to overwrite my changes with would be the snippet directories themselves.... and since I’ve already updated them, it should be safe. So I took a chance and selected all of them and went with the install. And it works!

            LOVE the new manager theme. And darned if I don’t think the whole site’s loading faster than it was on 9.6.3!! grin



            • Quick question. After upgrade from 9.6.x, which was successful according to the installer, the quickedit feature is still present and displayed when in admin mode and previewing the site.

              Is this by design or is this an error?

              Ot should I remove the QuickEdit module entirely?

              Thanks for the great work!

              • QuickEdit is a plugin; it would not have been touched by the upgrade (unless you had deleted the assets/plugins folder prior to uploading the new version). To get rid of it, you can just disable the plugin, or you can delete it as well as the entire assets/plugins/quickedit directory.

                  I see, thanks. Removed the plugin and FTP’d to the assets/plugins folder but there is no quickedit folder. I assume the installer removed that itself during the upgrade but left the plugin intact...odd.

                  * Edit - Just noticed that quickedit was in the Modules folder not plugins...

                  All working now though thank you.

                  • Ah, I do believe QuickEdit originally was a module as well as a plugin; that’s why it’s still in the modules directory.
