@ushbot @tuxpiper Hi there!
This morning I have tried to apply some update to the Ushahidi Platform.
After applied the update, the site has crashed, and it started to redirect all the time to https://map.informus.us/foribbiden
any clue?
Thanks!

[Romina Suarez, Ushahidi] Hi @ArturoQuintana have you updated both the platform and the platform-client? We released a new version today that depends on both being up to date

Hi @rowasc thanks for your time!
I did not update the client because we have changed the look and feel of the client, and in the new client version, it has been changed many component names, id, and structure. Therefore, if we update the client, we will lose the applied changes.
what can we do? any suggestion?

[Carolyn Commons, Ushahidi] @ArturoQuintana Have you tried merging the new client into your customized branch?

Hi @CarolynCommons @ushbot
I have not tried.
The commands I usually use to do the update are:
1.- git pull
2.- npm install
3.- gulp build

what should I do? replace the command 1 by?:
1.- git fetch origin
2.- git merge origin/master

Our changes have been only in the CSS. That's why I have commented about the changes on components names, id, and structure.

[Carolyn Commons, Ushahidi] So you made changes in the platform-pattern-library only? or the platform-client or both?

[Carolyn Commons, Ushahidi] Did you create a new branch when you made your changes or are you working in master?

I did not create a new branch, so I must be working on master

  • master
    stable
what else should I do?

[Carolyn Commons, Ushahidi] Since I’m not sure the scope of the changes you made, you’ll probably want to git pull on master branch. This will merge all of the updates into your branch. Wherever there are conflicts, you will need to resolve those. if you realize that it is going to be too difficult to merge the updates into your codebase, you can run git reset --hard which will revert your master branch to the commit before you merged.
[Carolyn Commons, Ushahidi] I don’t know how else to figure out if the updates will break your code without trying to merge it.

Hi, I've asked this before, but I don't believe I got an answer. Is there a test data set that can be used to populate a V3 deployment rather than manually creating posts?

[David Losada, Ushahidi] does the content of the posts matter ?

Hi David, not really.
It would be great if they're somewhat intelligible, not just Lorem Ipsum, etc. But, I'm open to all options.
