Detailed version check ElkArte Package 'ourVersion' error

The Detailed version check page uses data returned from:

https://api.github.com/repos/elkarte/Elkarte/releases

The elk_AdminIndex.prototype.showCurrentVersion js function uses the tag_name property as so:

Code: [Select]
if (!previous.hasOwnProperty('major') || verCompare.compareVersions(sCurrentVersion, elem.tag_name.replace('-', '').substring(1)))

This code assumes that all tag names start with a 'v' as the first letter. The 1.1.7 tag does not have a preceding 'v' causing it to be treated incorrectly.

The easiest fix for this would be to replace the 1.1.7 tag with a proper v1.1.7 tag.

I had notice this as well ... made a change in 1.1.9 to allow for the a missing 'v' in the release name.

Not sure how to go about changing a tag name, that is beyond my git knowledge, but if someone has the proper command to use I'll run it!

You can fix this directly in github. Start at:

https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/releases/edit/1.1.7

Click on the tag, add the 'v' prefix letter, press Enter, then save the release. The release time and order shouldn't change when doing this (it didn't for me when I tested this).

You can now delete the old 1.1.7 tag, leaving only the correct v1.1.7 tag for the release, from:

https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/tags

That kind of worked ... the issue appeared to be that since another later  tag existed, when I changed the name it reset the commit point to 1.1.8

So then I did a  git tag v1.1.7 1.1.7^{} which is supposed to make an alias of an existing tag, lets hope.

Next deleted the old one git tag -d 1.1.7

Pushed that alias/tags to the repo git push ElkArte :refs/tags/1.1.7

Finally git push ElkArte --tags

I think that worked  :zipper_mouth::pray:

I didn't have those problems on the web interface, but the release json appears to be fixed at:
