Alright so I've noticed that things go horrible wrong when you upgrade plugins through the plugin manager in the Admin CP or even install them. When you get to the point where you activate them they either crash your forum or they are unresponsive and act sorta rogue. I've ran a few tests and broke my forum over 70 times before testing another install method.
It seems the only way to NOT break your forum in half when upgrading plugins to their current versions is to use
npm install nodebb-plugin-example from the console and installing plugins that way.
I feel great not seeing my forum break and seeing
Your version of NodeBB (v0.5.4) is only cleared to upgrade to v0.7.4 of this plugin. Please update your NodeBB if you wish to install a newer version of this plugin. pop-up every time I try to update my plugins lol.
Is this something that's being addressed in v0.6.0?
I'm running v0.5.4 by the way.
