Updating Files from 1.6 to 1.8 - Nasyr - Oct 17, 2014

Since a lot of people have no idea what to do here is a simple tutorial.
I'll be doing it on Labrocca's Ficons plugin.

Locate the following file
public_html/inc/plugins/ficons.php

Note: ficons.php will be whatever file you need updated!

Edit the file and find compatibility and change it from 16* to 18*

On 1.6 (before)

On 1.8 (after)

Save the file and check in the ACP to make sure it's working.

This may not work for all the plugins, but it's likely worth a shot.

Usually it works, but in the case it doesn't edit all the files related to that plugin and add 18*.
Then it should work, I'll admit I had to do it with a few plugins.

It may work with small plugins but myawards and tabbed menu may not work. I haven't tested it myself

Labrocca said that MyAwards should work, since it isn't a core based plugin.

MyAwards does work fine when upgraded using this method.

Does this work with 'IP LOGIN History'?
I edited compatibility but I can't see it on my AdminCP

You must have made an error in placing files.
