I have upgraded to J2.5 with cb 1.7 and everything seemed fine until I tried to add a new field in field management (
When I click the new button I go to a page saying "Direct Access to this location is not allowed." and url is www.mysite/administrator/index.php
Is this a known issue?
I did search and read the article you suggested but there is nothing I can say stating there are any specific known bugs.
I also read your post ( www.joomlapolis.com/forum/146-general/189374-17-to-hold-me-over#189397 ) and, possibly wrongly, took that that there were no major back end problems.
As I needed 2.5 for other things I took the plunge.
All the plugins I have worked with 1.7, and the only plugin's I have (except cb ones) are acymailing (3.5.0) & uddeim (2.6), both of which are 2.5 compatible according to their documentation.
If this is fixed in 1.8 then I can probably wait a couple of weeks, but I would stll like to know if others have the same problem with cb1.7 on J2.5.1
I was on J1.7.3 before I upgraded, I never had J1.5; the site started on J1.7?? Sorry I can't see how the quote is relevant. I'm not trying to be difficult here, but maybe I'm being unclear in my description.
To be clear I was on J1.7.3 and cb1.7 I upgraded uddeim to 2.6 (1.7 & 2.5 compatible) and checked that acymailing 3.5.0 was 2.5 compatible. Given my understanding of cb1.7's capability on J2.5, I then upgraded to J2.5.
I can't see how any plugin can not be Joomla 1.7/2.5 compatible.
