Updating Instructions #
If you're upgrading from User 3.x on ExpressionEngine 2.x, it's recommended that you upload the new User files to your new ExpressionEngine 3.x site directory just before running the EE2 -> EE3 upgrade. Proceed with the following instructions...
- Within your sites ./system/user/addons/ directory, delete the user folder and upload the new one from the /system/user/addons/ directory in your download package.
- Within your sites ./themes/user/ directory, delete the user folder and upload the new one from the /themes/user/ directory in your download package.
- Go to the Add-On Manager area in the ExpressionEngine control panel, scroll to down to the Third Party Add-Ons section, and find User in the list, and click Update.
- If updating from User 3.x, and you were using the User Authors publish field, User 4.x will remove that field, but keep the data. You can restore use of this by creating a new custom channel field with the User fieldtype and Related Authors as the sub-fieldtype.
