How to easily update to the Nightly Branch
Joomla & WordPress
You've almost certainly seen references to the Nightly branch of Jomres in Jomres.net articles.
It's where I put changes that will eventually be added to the next release of Jomres Core. This gives you time to experiment with new features before they're added to Core, for example you may decide that you want to experiment with a new feature that has been released to see if it'll be good for you.
How do you do that?
Firstly, please don't do this on your live server. Use a Staging server .
To install the Nightly branch
- Go to Administrator > Jomres > Settings > Site Configuration.
- Go to the Debugging tab and change "Production or Development?" to Development
- Next go to Administrator > Jomres > Dashboard > Updates and click Update Jomres Now
That's it, that's all you need to do. Your installation will be running the latest version of Jomres Core.
Don't forget, afterwards, to set "Production or Development?" back to Production.
It may be that you're unable to access Jomres via the CMS's administrator menu, for some reason. If so, and if you're advised to update to the Nightly branch because there's a fix for the problem you're experiencing, you can set the CMS to debugging mode and use the Install from Web feature of the CMS. Search for Jomres, and install that way. Because the debugging mode is enabled then the Nightly version will be downloaded instead of the current release.
In Joomla set debugging on in Global Configuration. In Wordpress you'll need to edit wp_config.php to enable debugging.
