Can anyone offer some step-by-step instructions on how to upgrade to SS3.0.1 from 2.4 and migrating my blog to the latest release? I'm very confused by how this is supposed to work. Specifically - how do I bring the blog up to date?

For upgrading core, simply follow the standard process -

For the blog module, same process again -
1) Backup your current 'blog' folder to your desktop / ~/,
2) Download the latest 'blog' folder - (or use git)
3) Run /dev/build

If you're using blog widgets you'll now also need the widgets module and the comments module if you need comments. Again, download the latest master of both of those from github.

If you have custom code, you will need to update that as well by working through the changes in changelog manually and working through your code.

Yes, looked like had a outage over the last day. Looks to be back now.

FYI you can read documentation offline if you need directly on github / your local version by reading the files in the 'docs' folder (

Cheers Will - perhaps including that info into a custom error page for would be useful in case it happened again?
