RE: Custom Content Dashboard Widget

The resent Auto Upgrade to Version: 1.5.6 over-wrote my contents .php file

Not Cool...

    Hi twicealive,

    Ouch, sorry that your customization got overwritten. Updating via ftp should avoid any issues like that if you merely overwrite the existing folder with the new files, but I think the auto-update deletes the existing folder first.

    I'll ask the developer to have a look at this to see how that might be resolved for the future.

    Hi David,

    Actually, I forgot that the customization for this was in the plugin file until after I hit the upgrade button.

    The reason I wanted to mention the issue was first to to caution the other users, and second to raise the following question:

    If the auto-update deletes the folder before installing the new, then should there actually be an auto-update for plugins or themes that by design have folders containing customized files?

    But no complaints... The developers all do a terrific job.
