The Great Reading Adventure version 3.0!


:books: Version 3.0 of The Great Reading Adventure has been posted! For more information, see the release notes.

If you’d like to take version 3.0 for a spin without installing anything, you can try the updated demo.

This version includes substantial changes to the patron interface of the software - hopefully the site is easier to navigate (and the responsive design should provide full functionality on mobile devices). These changes should also make it easier for a Web designer/developer to customize the site as needed.

We currently have no upgrade path for earlier versions of the GRA - please let us know on the forums here if this is a problem and we can try to help you through doing a clean install or trying to manage an upgrade.

As always, if you have any issues, please post to the Installation Issues, Help!, or Errors categories here on the forum!



Woohoo! Does this affect the server setup in any way?


The best bet for using 3.0 will be to clear out the existing database and server files and do another deployment. There were substantial changes in 3.0 which makes upgrading problematic.


I have released version 3.0.2 which fixes some issues in School/School District management. The links to download 3.0.2 are updated in the top post in this thread and upgrade instructions for going from version 3.0.0 or 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 can be found in this forum post.

Please let us know if you have any issues with this release!
