 Upgrade Path

  1. If you are on 1.2x do upgrade to 1.2.10 then only Upgrade to 1.3 or 1.3.8

    Shika older version >> Upgrade/Install to 1.2.10 >> Then Upgrade/Install to 1.3.8                                                                               
  2.  If you are on beta 1.3 then upgrade does not work, as there are some database tables introduced in 1.3 stable.

  3.  If New Site directly install Shika 1.3.8

Backward Compatibility breaks in this release:

  1. HTML Overrides will break: A lot of the HTML in this release has been optimized and rewritten introducing structural changes and new elements on most of the pages. Any overrides you have done should be reviewed and redone for the extension to work correctly and to get the full benefit of new features. To see the new UI you need to remove your overrides.
