    I believe you do need to change the name of the admin folder to prevent that message from appearing, but you want to do that anyway, for security reasons. It's really pretty simple:

    Change the name of the 'admin' folder.

    Open admin/includes/configure.php and change the three (3) places where it says 'admin' to the new name of your folder.

    Save the configure.php back to admin/includes, overwriting the existing file.

    The security patch ZIP file was updated a couple times. Perhaps you got an earlier edition of the file that didn't contain the updates.
    It's easy to fix that:
    a) clear the browser's "temporary files"
    b) re-download the patch zip file
    c) unzip
    d) apply the patch as if it was the first time you were doing it.
    There's only a few files in it to deal with, so will only take a couple minutes.


    Renaming your Admin is still very important, but is unrelated to the version number message.

    Could i just install the security patch & leave the Admin Folder, or do i have to rename admin to get rid of the message "New PATCH Available: v1.3.8a - patch: [1] :: Important Security Patch "

    as DrByte mentioned. renaming your admin folder is unrelated to version / update message you get in your admin. download the patch again as this one has been updated to also deal with version message and reapply the patch .

    I installed the patch on June 22nd, renamed admin directory today (july 1) and am still getting the new patch message. Patch is current version per security thread. Do I still need to reinstall?

    Will do, thanks. But very confusing in the security thread! The file should be renamed as when I tried to re-download it said I already had it. Shouldn't there be version numbers? I got email but figured I'd already done it.

    I installed the update and have got rid of the message in the admin area.

    But in the admin area when i click on "Online Catalog" its displaying a blank page. How can i resole this.

    Iam building the site now, and i have a index.html under construction page on my main page. But in the past when iam in the admin area i can click on "Online Catalog" and it will show me the site.

    Now when i click on "Online Catalog" it just gives me a blank page, how can this be resolved, or how can i remove the security patch. So, that i can install it when i finished the site.

    I tried deleting all files from security patch, but then website dosent work, so ive re-installed the patch again.

    Please help. Thanks
