As you might have heared, Nordmograph took over AlphaUserPoints and renamed it to AltaUserPoints.
We are using JFBConnect with AlphaUserPoints rule and we now need to upgrade to AltaUserPoints.
Can you please tell me, whether AltaUserPoints is already compatible with JFBConnect?
We heard about the change of hands recently, but haven't tested Alta User Points yet. If they didn't really change the underlying component name, then everything probably works as expected. If they changed the system named stuff to altauserpoints, then we probably need to update. That would mean every extension dev has to update, which would be a pain, but not completely unexpected.
We'll have to look into it more. Of course, if you decide to test out Alta with JFBConnect, let us know how it goes
To reply , the names indeed changed. Only the DB table names did not change,
Files got renamed, classes and functions
An easy conversion process is to replace every occurences of 'lpha' by 'lta' (lowercase)
except for db tables ...
and LPHA to LTA uppercase for language constant vars"
Do you think you could make a 'quick update' and release it?
While really do like AUP (in either name), it's not our main priority to rename everything for a change of hands. We will get that done over the next few months, but until then, I'd recommend staying on Alpha User Points if you need the social integration that JFBConnect provides.
Alternatively, you can go into the /plugins/socialprofiles/alphauserpoints directory and try to make the changes that the developer recommends to the alphauserpoints.php file. It shouldn't take long; that file is only 86 lines. The testing and verification that it all still functions properly without issue will be the more time consuming part.
