OIO 2.26 (bug fix)

Cause: a 3rd party web service (used to grab the location of a user) has been inaccessible lately, causing OIO to hang when running.

Solution: upgrade to v2.26. The standard upgrade procedure is to simply upload the new files over the top of the old ones. A step-by-step upgrade tutorial is also available here.

What it does: this update will stop OIO from hanging if 3rd party web services are inaccessible. It also adds the ability to turn off geo-targeting completely.

Please report any issues in the forum. As always, a full changelog is available by clicking here.


Customised Installs: for those users who have template customisations, you shouldn’t need to over-write any of the templates. At the very least, you will need to overwrite the following files:

* the entire “admin” directory
* the entire “modules/demographics” directory
* the functions.php, install.php, upgrade.php files in the “include” directory
* all php files in the main OIO directory (eg. oiopub-direct/admin.php)

If you encounter any problems with updating the minimum number of files, you should try over-writing all files (in case you have an older install that requires a complete upgrade). You can leave the “templates” directory until last, since it is the least likely to require updating.

Considering I’ve got lots of customizations to my v2.22 installation (like templates etc), is there a certain subset of files or folders that I can just rewrite over to avoid losing my custom templates, etc?

Good question Kristina. Im interested to know as well.

Hi Kristina, Richard,

I’ve added a ‘ps’ to the blog post regarding what does and what doesn’t need updating. You can certainly leave all templates alone.

Hi Simon ..

Is there an option for the Web Installs? I usually upgrade my sites that way, because it is convenient for me. However, I too have to always go in and update the templates .. in particular, to include my logo at the top of the purchase page. It would be nice if the Web Installer installs the upgrade template folders to something like ../templates-new/

I suppose I can just copy the folders to ../templates-old/ I guess (if I remember)

Ah, very nice idea. I hadn’t thought of doing it that way.

In fact, I’ve just updated the web installer to upload templates to a “templates-new” directory when performing an upgrade (along with an explanation before the file transfer begins).

Give it a go and let me know what you think. It should be fine to use for the 2.26 upgrade:

Worked like a charm :) thanks!

The installer didn’t work for me. I wouldn’t let me specify the directory.

You don’t happen to be running your site on a Windows-based server? I am aware that the directory selection doesn’t work for everyone, but I’m not exactly sure under what circumstances it fails.

If you’re willing to send over some temporary FTP details (via the contact form), I should be able to find out why it won’t work for you.

Was just notified about your new update (V2.26) via my wordpress admin area. This was a brand new installation which I done yesterday. The version I’m using is Version 2.51 so I’m not sure why I got this notice and thought I should let you know, The notification mentions 3rd party scripts causing oio sites to hang!!!

Simon | February 4, 2012

Thanks for the heads up.

I’m not sure why it found a much older version of OIO when doing the upgrade check, but it does seem likely to just have been a one off “oddity”.
