When will Concrete 5 make a version where I never have to upgrade it again?1 user found helpful
What if you are not a website business, like maybe a bagel shop or a convenience corner store and just need to throw a simple 3 page website up online just to have one and you never want to it to break or disappear or change it, that is not an option in concrete 5 it sounds like, right?
And thanks so much for your answer!
Of course, you can always choose to not upgrade, but that would be ill advised. Do you refuse to upgrade your O/S when patches and versions come out?
In this case, you chose to upgrade to try to solve a problem so let's see if we can solve your root problem.
If I had to guess, I'm thinking it's a 3rd party script such as a tracking script that's gone bad.
I also see tracking100.com scripts and 'addthisedge.com' scripts which are not particularly reputable and some of them are not loading properly. From how you speak about your site, it doesn't sound like you added this stuff yourself. Any idea how these scripts got into your pages?
I didn't want to upgrade to a newer version but some of my add-ons seemed to have stopped working, but the main part was that the page editing toolbar at the top was gone. So I upgraded to a newer version and still no toolbar. I don't know how tracking100.com got on there, but I also don't know how to delete it, I put the add this toolbar on there and it's never given me problems.
So here's how I fixed it...(and you were correct by the way!)
1) Access Cloudflare through my host cPanel and put CloudFlare into developer mode (running some audits in debug mode in chrome told me certain .js functions were not loading and there were a few other hints in there all related to cloud flare)
2) Disable Cloudflare through my host control panel.
3) Re-enable CloudFlare and ta-dah, it's there.
Thanks for the respnose and thanks for having my back with saying it's not a ridiculous question. I'll be responding to said person right now.
Take care and have a great weekend!
Where talking about software not a brick wall, even the last one you still need to fix .
His question his the same, like asking for a car that does not need fuel.
Updates or anything that improves an application is always welcome.
Don't touch the site, never upgrade and he will be fine.
Concrete5 is the best suited cms for non developers that I know.
Yes, of course, if you don't upgrade the core and you don't run updates on any of the add-ons - everything with your concrete5 site should remain the same. So the premise of his question is false.
Just for clarity:
NO we do not change your concrete5 site without you actively doing something. Not only do I agree that would be a bad idea, but we're actually technically incapable of doing that today - by design.
So one might even answer his original question of:
"when will concrete5 make it so I never have to update a version again?"
with.. "Yes. That's what we do today."
Personally, I would be asleep in two seconds being a developer, a visionary that starts and sell companies just fits me better). So is it really ridiculous for let's say the corner store market to want to have a single page home page website that exists cause they feel they should have one cause it's 21st century but they have no desire or need to ever upgrade it and if they did upgrade it it would take their time away from doing business development on their actual business. They don't make money from the website, all the residents surrounding this convenience store know it exists, so it may be a ridiculous question to you, but I think my track record speaks for itself that I know how to make use of my time.
Unfortunately I chose Concrete 5 which is so not user friendly. I'm a pretty smart tech savvy person and it took a really long time to learn this. It makes Drupal, Joomla, and Word Press look like you're playing legos, when Concrete 5 is trying to solve 2 rubic's cubes at the same.
**** Addendum, I shouldn't have said "unfortunately" I chose Concrete 5. Concrete 5 rules, I love it now that I know it and it is head and shoulders above all other CMS platforms. When you're not a developer though and you change one little thing and everything breaks and sometimes it's a host issue, and sometimes it could be anything, but it's just frustrating when all you really want is for something to work =).

Where did you get that from?
Just wanted to give you my perspective on something you said:
"So is it really ridiculous for let's say the corner store market to want to have a single page home page website that exists cause they feel they should have one cause it's 21st century but they have no desire or need to ever upgrade it and if they did upgrade it it would take their time away from doing business development on their actual business.

Personally I would never sell Concrete5 as a solution to this set of circumstances, if a small local business just need a 2/3 page site that says "hey, here we are come visit us in localtown!" I wouldnt give them a 3000 file CMS as its obviously way beyond what they need, in fact, it would probably be detrimental to what they are trying to achieve, I would recommend people with those needs to have a static site, plain and simple, if I want to knock in a nail I dont hire a JCB, tools fit for purpose, and the same goes with the web. A small local webshop would be able to put together a decent looking site on a small budget, thats where I would recommend your hypothetical grocers to go.
