Update notification does not show 2.1 release

Post by xoxyss » Sun Apr 09, 2017 12:47 pm

Hi,

the update notification in the dashboard is not working if "Update Notification" is set to "stable" in the settings. After changing the setting to "beta" the notification works and shows the 2.1.1 release notification on dashboard.

Something wrong or normal behavior?

Regards

Hi,

there is a timestamp in the database with the time s9y last looked up for a new stable or beta version. It only looks for new versions one times a day (or so) for each setting (beta or stable). So if you change from stable to beta and s9y has no or an older timestamp for beta, it will look up immediatly and show you the new version.

Otherwise, you have to wait a few hours for the new version to be shown.

Regards
Mario

If you feel comfortable editing the SQL database tables s9y is using, you can have a look at the s9y_config table and the last_update_check_stable row. The value of that name is the UNIX timestamp of the last check. Subtract about 90.000 (25 hours) from that number and enter that smaller number as the new value for last_update_check_stable. Now you should see an update notification.

Please only try that if you think you know what you do. :-)

Hi,

thank you both. Manually changing the timestamp in the database works like a charm :)
