I made a fresh install of 1.3.1. I get this error when trying to change the name of a (any) block. 1054: Unknown column 'help' in 'field list' What's wrong?

Read the article about the help field a few down from this one on the homepage. ----- The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.

I appears that the column 'help' is missing in the block table in your mySQL database. I traced the variable and noticed it was inserted into table 'blocks', column 'help'. So in order to fix the problem, add a column: field: help, type: varchar(96), Null: yes WARNING: this is *my* solution, I haven't thoroughly tested it, so if you want to make sure nothing goes wrong, wait until one of the developers has confirmed.

Here's the way to add the field for the newbie in all of us: mysql> use geeklog; Reading table information for completion of table and column names You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A Database changed mysql> alter table blocks -> add help VARCHAR(128) default NULL; Query OK, 7 rows affected (0.00 sec) Records: 7 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0
