could you add a version checker like phpbb uses so people who are not here every day will know when the new version is out.

Maybe a Version showing up in admin page


language/your language

add
define("_NUKEVERSION","Site Engine Version = ");

admin.php
add this at line 222
Code:
/*********************************************************/

/* Version Check                                         */
/*********************************************************/
    global $Version_Num;

       OpenTable();
    echo "<center><h4><b>"._NUKEVERSION."$Version_Num</center><h4/></b>\n";
      CloseTable();

Hello,

I agree, put it e.g. into module 'configure' that will cause less traffic I think.

Would be fine if that will be possible,

regards, Benson

Cubecart has this feature, and I find it invaluable.

My suggestion from seeing their functionality is: put it in an obvious place, such as the top right corner of the admin screen that you see as soon as you log into the admin area.

I think one simple way to do it could be via an image tag such as
Code:
<img src="http://ravenphpscripts.com/versioncheck.php?version=2.02.02">

(note the name of the image is a php script)

I assume the "version" param in this case could be pulled dynamically from the config table.

The versioncheck.php script in this case would return either a "up to date" image or a "needs updating" image, and going one step further could display a "big ugly red flashing" image if there was an urgent need to update (security issues etc.)

Branistorming one step further, it occurs to me that you could add a "big brother" check to the link, that would update your server with the domain name of the install in question and the last date their system checked for updates... in that way you would have a realistic idea of how many active installs there really are out there, or at least how many sites have someone access their main admin page.

That is quite an interesting idea. Perhaps I can add it to the actual version checker I'm doing (for multiple things... phpNuke, BBToNuke, addon modules, etc).
Heck, the graphic idea could even work in the admin panel if you have the graphical buttons on. Just need to develop a way to cache it, so its not hitting the reference server constantly.

I can't wait to finish this script
