I’ve installed several apps using the cPanel from my hosting provider and almost gave up on b2evo because I could not figure out how to show future dates on the calendar. The the back-end said a new release was available 6.8.9. I did a clean install of 6.8.8 without the demo content and then Auto Updated to the latest version. That happened without incident. I discovered the new version has checkbox to enable future dates; wonderful news!
I cannot do some things with my smartphone easily. The Bootstrap_blog is not showing as two columns like it did in 6.8.8 (I’m assuming I did something wrong). Given all I’ve read and experienced so far this may likely become my website.
