Is there a way to make expired posts still viewable? I have it set that it leaves posts 30 days before pruning them, but you cannot see them. Seems kind of pointless to have screens of recently closed posts if no one can view them.
Version checker seems to work to resolve that though. On a couple boxes ownership of a file was not to the account I was on, so like 2 out of 3000 were not updated. I went to ACPs version checker and it caught it right off. Two uploads later back in the game. Granted I re-uploaded everything as root later that day when I was home to be sure, but seemed to be an option. If nothing else an upgrade tar with no init, graphics, or favicons would be nice.
With the version checker in the ACP and a simple check in SQL for build number I do not think these issues would be that big of a deal. With 6 IPS sites under this account and 5 under another upgrades are a PITA. You have to remember to strip out images, favicons, and so on, on top of checking the init file, and do so on. I hat to admit it, but I skip updates on some of the smaller sites just due to not wanting to have to deal with this when another update is probably only a week away by the time the current one is stable.
