Support » Plugin: WPtouch Mobile Plugin » WPtouch stuck in version 1.9.42, won't update

  • I regularly and dutifully update plugins on my site at least biweekly. Today I noticed that WPtouch stuck in version 1.9.42 (which is 4-5 versions behind) and won’t even notify me in the admin panel that there is a new version 1.9.6 available.

    How do I update now while preserving all existing WPtouch setups? Is it safe to manually install as if it’s a “new” install rather than “update”?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can manually install it as new and your settings should be preserved.

    You’re welcome.

    Thanks, the uninstall of obsolete 1.9.42 followed by fresh install of current version 1.9.6 worked and preserved all my existing setups.

    Now, look at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wptouch/stats/ : the stats page shows that only 3.1% of the total install base have the current 1.9.6, vs. 17.6% having the obsolete 1.9.42. I *guess* other users are also stuck in version 1.9.42, because WP admin panel probably “thinks” that since 1.9.6 < 1.9.42, then 1.9.6 must be older than 1.9.42.

    Try to change the version labeling scheme: rename the current version 1.9.6 to 1.9.60. My $.02.

    Please change this to 1.9.60.

    Yeh, I’m stuck in the 40s too.

    me too

    even your web site still refers to 1.9.42 in last post.
    How are we even supposed to know?

    Now that I do I am doing the install, reinstall new method.

    LOL! Just discovered that BraveNewCode’s version-numbering approach is cyclic or spiral, rather than monotonic/linear. The changelog page wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wptouch/changelog sports two(!) releases labeled “Version 1.9.5”, and two(!) releases labeled “Version 1.9.6”.

    Offtopic:

    “Although progress is often associated with the Western notion of monotonic change in a straight, linear fashion, alternative conceptions exist, such as the cyclic theory of eternal return, or the “spiral-shaped” dialectic progress of Hegel, Marx, et al” ( wikipedia.org/wiki/Progress_(history) )
