Upgraded 1.3.6 destroys article database


Greetings! Thank $DEITY for backups. After upgrading from 1.3.5 to 1.3.6, whenever I go to admin/story.php, the site goes into a strange meta refresh loop and drops all articles. The gl_stories table is emptied. Any ideas why this may be happening? -Sami

Hmm, are you using a language file other than one of the five standard languages (English, German, Polish, Italian, Japanese) that come with 1.3.6? Because I can see that what you describe happening when $LANG24[11] is empty ... If so, then sorry about that - sanity checks have been added to all the other admin pages to prevent that from happening, but it seems story.php slipped through the cracks ... bye, Dirk


Yes, I am using my own Finnish translation (which I would like to contribute if someone is interested). Thanks for the pointer, I'll check it. If anyone is keen to get my Finnish messages file, drop me a note at sami at lempinen.net. -Sami
