Release Notes

In this release we have added support for running multiple DKP systems at the same time in the same Portal.

This update contains significant changes to the underlying database. You are strongly encouraged to backup your database before upgrading to this version.

A less-common feature in some DKP systems is the ability to have several systems operating within the same environment. Typically a DKP system will use this feature to separate periods of activity related to different game content. So for example, in World of Warcraft, all content that's considered new in a particular content release might be viewed as needing it's own DKP system.

In response to this trend, this module has been radically revamped to support multiple DKP systems. We do this by defining "Boards" which act as complete and separate DKP systems running within the same module space. Each module instance is able to manage the list of defined Boards for each Portal, and by changing the module's settings, a module can easily be attached and detached from a particular Board. In this way, the same module can be used to make several module instances throughout the website, with each instance attached to whatever Board the admin chooses.

For DNN hosters, Boards are isolated by PortalID, so if you are offering this module to multiple clients across multiple portals, each client will see just the Boards belonging to their Portal.

For those upgrading from a previous release, your data will be preserved, but don't tempt fate. Please backup your database. This update has a large number of database changes and I'd hate to see you lose your data. After installing the upgraded module, browse to any of your site pages containing a DKP module instance and click on the new "Boards" navigation link at the top, right of the module. After clicking you should see either a generic Board or a Board that matches up with the module settings you had previously defined. If you do not, please post on the discussion forums.

After verifying that the Board exists, go to the module's settings and associate the module instance with the Board to which it should be attached. Update the settings, and you should be returned to your Player section.

Keep in mind, any module instance can be used to manage Boards. Only authorized users will be able to manage Boards.

Note: Attendance calculation may be wonky again. Keep an eye on this and report if you see any irregularities.

Other updates:

The number of players displayed per class in the leaderboard was inceased from 5 to 10.

Settings like Realm, Region, Game, Guild, etc are now stored in the database as Board settings. All future settings will be stored in the same manner.
