1.3 restore process should be abe to restore 1.4 (new) resources

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Trivial
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.3
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Backup
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:
      All
    • Affected Branches:
      MOODLE_13_STABLE

      Description

      So the 1.3 process is going to be modified to support this.

      Note: this is an exception in backup & restore functionality. Although upwards compatibility of backup files is a must, backwards isn't guarantied, mainly because we can guess the future.

            Now new resources are included in backup & restore.

            1.4-->1.4 and 1.3-->1.4 conversions are working fine.

            Tomorrow I'll try the backwards conversion (1.4--->1.3).

            Done and in MOODLE_13_STABLE branch just now!!

            Now resource module backups from a 1.4 version can be restored in a 1.3.

            Only two combinations aren't 100% compatible:

            • Program resources.
            • Text without format in 1.4 is changed to type 4 (plain text) in 1.3

            So resource restore is 99% backwards compatible in 1.3

            If no problems are detected, I'll close this bug in some days...ciao

            Minor changes done in 1.3--->1.4 to set the frame option under certain conditions...
