Review Database Error Beta Patch

Some users are getting an error on the Review Listing page:

An error has occured. ERQD2

This is due to the MySQL Server not liking nested queries. Upgrading to a MySQL version greater than 4.1 should fix it; however some users are still reporting a problem so here is a beta patch, click Files to download.

Simple Review 2.0 Release

I have decided to bite the bullet and just release version 2.0 as is. This means that it will be stable but wont have promised features such as user reviews. I believe that all the major bugs are gone and I will spend the next couple of weeks creating a database upgrade script for 1.3.5 users.

SR 2.0 Beta 5 Released

I have sent out beta 5 to those who requested it.
I know of a few small issues but of nothing major.
I have only tested it on Joomla 1.0.13 php and mysql 4.

The final release will depend on:

  • How many bugs are found.
  • How long it takes me to finish removing old redundant code.
  • How long it takes to get a database update script complete.
  • How busy I am.

I would estimate it being about 90% complete.

New Releases

I have just released the 4th beta of Simple Review 2.0 as well as the 2.0 version of the Search Bot.
It fixes many of the bugs in the previous beta.
