Customized Fields 2.3.4 ~ 2.3.9 upgrade instruction

Note 1: If you are running a version that is customized by me or any other developer, please consult the originator first.

Note 2: If you do not have any company fields and you do not intend to define any in the future, you can ignore this instruction

Note 3: If you already successfully upgraded your customized fields module to 2.3.4/5, you don't need to do anything for 2.3.6 ~ 2.3.9.

activeCollab 2.3.4 ~ 2.3.9 are major upgrades from 2.3.3

Some customer reported after they upgraded their instances to 2.3.4 (or 2.3.5, 6, 7, 8, 9), the company fields stopped showing up on the edit page.

The reason is the search fix was required for company fields to show up. If you have company fields, you probably already applied the search fix.

But after the upgrade, some of the hacks from the search fix were overwritten by the new version. That is why you stop seeing the company fields on the edit page.

How to fix it?

First of all: DO NOT APPLY ANY SEARCH FIX MADE FOR A PREVIOUS VERSION. I WILL SEND YOU A NEW VERSION.

Then, I will issue an update from e-junkie. You will receive a download link for the latest version of this module. Simply extract all files to your activeCollab 2.3.4~2.3.9 instances, and company fields will come back on the edit page.

If your customized fields module was later hacked by me or anyone else, doing this upgrade will probably revert the hack.

This time the search fix is no longer required for company fields. Of course you can always apply it if you need to search.
