I'm running Jevents 1.5.3 (B1629) with Joomla 1.5.23 and would like to upgrade to the latest com_jevents_155f_b1887.zip.
My concern is that I've heavily modified:
This was done so that the presence of certain keywords in an event's title would cause some events to:
- have their displayed times be changed to be a fixed number of minutes before or after sundown (rather than showing the event time as in the database, which will still control where the event appears).
- have the event's time be hidden
- have the event's position and size shifted up close to the event above it, to be in association with it.
- Insert Jewish holidays, torah readings, omer counts, weekly services schedules, candle-lighting times, havdalah times, etc. all automatically; so nobody needs to touch the calendar except for one-off special events.
What would I normally do to upgrade? Just install the new version on top of the old? Or is there usually something more?
After upgrading, if I simply overwrite the new version's files with my old hacked files, should it all work as before? Or are there some "gotchas" I should watch out for?
Thanks very much for your attention.
