Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

There was an error applying core edits.

Here I am once.. Again..!

I just installed the latest Symposium version on MyBB (1.8.22), whenever click "apply core edits" I get the error: there was an error applying core edits.

Edit: I have the same problem with Bankpipe, I think it's unnecessary to post a duplicate of this post there.

I have not yet done the PM conversion but I don't see why this would be a problem.

I have my files ch-modded to:

This is probably an issue with permissions, so I'd like to know what files I have to chmod to the proper permission so Symposium can apply the core edits.

Thanks in advance!

Solved! I chmodded some directories and eventually it worked! I am not sure what folder(s) I chmodded that allowed me to apply core edits, but it worked. Perhaps @Shade can still provide the directories and files that need to have proper chmod's in order to allow for core edits so anyone else with the problem has the solution.

if a reply is still required,
look for below code segment in the plugin file
that consists of file name to be edited
there can be multiple files to be edited & CHMOD 666 would be required
