[resolved] 1.5 Upgrade destroys Google Sitemap customizations (4 posts)

    Luckily I had a restore point for my site before I did the upgrade - after the upgrade it appears as if all the customizations I made to hide posts from the Google Sitemap were destroyed.

    Is running 1.43 a security risk?

    what does you mean exactly with "destroyed"? Have you lost just some of them or the whole list of exclusions? Does the issue affect both posts and pages?
    Are there any other customisations you did and now are missing?

    Right now, I can't confirm any bug. I tested one more time the upgrade from version 1.4.3 and it succeed.

    I don't recommend running versions older than the current one in any case.

    However, your old settings haven't been lost. From now on, SiteTree makes an automatic backup copy of all your settings and back-end data before performing the upgrade.

    To be sure there isn't a bug, you could send me a copy of the data the plugin is currently working with (but via the contact form on the website). To do so:

    - Upgrade to version 1.5
    - Place the following code at the beginning of the functions.php file in your theme, just after the opening <?php tag:

    add_action( 'wp_footer', create_function( '',
        "echo @serialize( get_option( '_sitetree_backup' ) ) . "
      . "'<br><br>' . @serialize( get_option( 'sitetree' ) );"

    - Visit a web page of your site
    - Send me all the text that has been printed out in the footer of the page.

    Then, you can delete the code from the functions.php file.
