Default Mysidia Adoptables v1.3.5[Security Release]

It's been a few years since Mys v1.3.4 was out, and Mys v1.3.5 is finally ready to release. It has several significant improvement over Mys v1.3.4, and every user is encouraged to upgrade unless you have a heavily customized site. Mys v1.3.5 introduces the following new features:


1. Multi-Alternate Adoptables Form:
This is a much demanded feature that our users have been requesting for a long time, and it is happening in the new release. In Mys v1.3.5, it will be possible for admins to create multiple alternate forms/images for the adoptables. These alternate forms may be activated via leveling-up or using items, depending on the chance, gender, or last form ID. Check the link of my blog post below to find out more about this feature.

2. Turn subsystems & features on/off:
It is quite often that site admins wish to disable a certain feature they do not need, or even turn off the entire site to perform maintenance. Mys v1.3.5 allows you to easily enable/disable your site or a subsystem/feature from ACP. Note certain features like Daycare, Pound and Trade can already be disabled via their own settings. Check the link of my blog post below to find out more about this feature.

3. Pagination Optimization:
Mysidia has had pagination for myadopts and members list pages since version v1.3.0, but from now on it is heavily used in many pages that may have a big table to display data, especially ACP. This is especially necessary for bigger sites as I've found that their sites load very slow on certain pages. Admins may also specify the number of rows to display on paginated tables. Check the link of my blog post below to find out more about this feature.

4. Minor QoL Updates:
I will have to agree that the script aint very easy to use for certain users. Some struggle with installation, some break their sites from ACP. Mys v1.3.5 introduces a few QoL updates to make it more convenient for admins. For instance, you will be automatically redirected to installation page if you have not installed the script. The theme selection from site settings is now a dropdown list so you wont have to worry about breaking your site if you make a typo in the default theme name. Forum integration is also updated to work with MyBB v1.8.

5. Miscellaneous Bug Fixes:
Mys v1.3.4 had quite a few bugs that demand attention, and most of the reported glitches from bug tracker have been fixed in this new version. We welcome users to report unresolved bugs present in Mys v1.3.5 too if you find out any.


Installation Guide:
1. Use ftp to Upload the entire folder Mysidia Adoptables v1.3.5 to your preferred directory, and change the name to whatever you like.
2. Change the CMD of folder "picuploads" to 777, together with its subfolders, this is required to enable user uploading images. Also change the CMD of the subfolders "cache", "compile" and "config" in your template folder to 777.
3. Rename the file config_adopts to config.php, otherwise the script will tell you config.php does not exist.
4. Access your site by the appropriate url and you will be automatically redirected to installation page, follow the instructions and proceed.
5. Congrats, you've successfully installed Mys v1.3.5, cheers!

Note: The value pepper code can be generated from a website called: http://strongpasswordgenerator.com, it can be of any length and may contain symbols.Make sure to delete the file install/index.php after running this script, or your site is potentially at danger if this file is accessed by someone else. Also make sure your server is running on PHP 5.3.0+ and supports PDO, the latter is especially important.


Upgrade Guide:
An upgrader from mys v1.3.4 is available, and should be easy to use. To upgrade, simply upload all script files to your folder and overwrite the existing ones. The config file is named config_adopts.php by default, so your old config file should be safe. Now run the upgrade.php script to complete this task, shouldnt take more than 10 secs. If you are upgrading from Mys v1.3.3, you will need to upgrade to Mys v1.3.4 first.

Do not use the upgrader if you have a site with heavily modified script! Mys v1.3.5 does not touch most of the core class files so addons/plugins compatible with Mys v1.3.4 are expected to work with Mys v1.3.5. I will convert some of my own plugins to Mys v1.3.5 compatible incase they are not. What can be sure is that the upgrader will not do its job if your script is highly customized, in this case you need to upgrade manually.


Forum Integration Guide:

First of all, make sure you have both fresh installation of Mysidia Adoptables and MyBB forum. Open the file /inc/config_forums.php, enter each empty field for the database info of your MyBB forum. Then Change the variable mybbenabled from 0 to 1. The very last step is to disable registration on the forum. It is all said and done, new users will have accounts created from both the adoptables site and the forum from now on.

Note the forum integration has been upgraded and thus it should work with MyBB v1.8. Lemme know immediately if it does not, I will take action asap. If you are stuck on MyBB v1.6 however, you will need use the forum integration script from Mys v1.3.4 instead.

Following Mys v1.3.5's release, we are feature-completed for Mys v1.3.x series. I plan to make a new minor version Mys v1.3.6 to address some concerns such as PHP 7/8 compatibility, which is a very demanded feature since Mys v1.3.x has been compatible with PHP 5.3-5.6 only. The next version is projected to be available in February or March 2021, it will not add significant new features but will come with some more QoL updates and Bug fixes(whatever we find from Mys v1.3.5 of course). Stay tuned, and check Mysidia Official Blogs for any new updates that may come in the next few months.

Have a great week everyone, I hope you enjoy the upcoming Christmas Holidays especially with the release of our new version.
