Backward Compatibility Notes

  • +* Added protected properties to class Concrete\Core\Application\UserInterface\Menu\Item\Item in order to avoid accessing undefined properties and optimize memory usage (See: https://github.com/concrete5/concrete5/issues/5307)
  • If you have done any Express Form customizations for custom rendering, you will need to update your customizations – there is a new way of performing these customizations that gives greater flexibility and reduces the need for custom templates and spaghetti code. Please check out the Express Form Documentation: Express Form Theming
  • If you have a custom form template for the “express_form” block, you will have to remove the line that looks similar to this at the top of the view template: $renderer = Core::make('Concrete\Core\Express\Form\StandardFormRenderer', ['form' => $expressForm]);
  • IMPORTANT: If you use the “Manual Approve” method of handling user activations, this option has changed to use User workflows. Add a workflow to the “Activate User” permission to the “Dashboard > System > Permissions > Users” page. This will force users to go through workflow prior to them being approved after registration. Registration has been disabled on your site! Once you’ve setup workflow, re-enable user registration from the Dashboard.
