Updates to Minetest posts

     I finally got around to digging into the PHP theming on my website, and now the Minetest pages have two blocks with auto generated content. Currently I'm having problems with the more mods by this author block. For a brief moment in time it was working, and when looking at a mod you would see a list of other mods that that author had created and I had reviewed, unfortunately that is now not working, and I didn't change anything. This is a long standing problem I have had both on this site and on my ministry site. Everything is set correctly in the view options and stuff, but nope, it doesn't work. I have a related mods list as well, but I don't know how well it really matches things up. Mods should be matched based on terms that are in common, but they all have a Minetest and Mod_Review tag, and I think that messed with the matching system, both of those tags are needed because they control other things elsewhere.

     I am probably about half way through bringing over all my Minetest Mod review videos, and as I've been going I've been creating custom thumbnails for each video and updating the information on Youtube, as some of the old videos had cut the descriptions short and didn't have all the links that I felt they should have.

     I figured out what I was doing wrong, turns out that turning on the reduce duplicates filter made things go all wack, so now the videos are showing other mods that were created by the modder! In cases where multiple people are the mod authors I think it should show other mods by any of the individuals, but I haven't checked that yet, I suppose I really should.

I am in need of help getting minetest on my ubuntu 14.04 LTS computer.
I can get minetest 4.9 running but would like to get the newest minetest 4.13 working.

I am new to linyx because microsoft did an auto update and decided my windows was invaled after 2 years of use.

Okay, I'm guessing you got minetest installed from the software center, which is horribly outdated, to get the new version as they are released please do this.
Open the terminal, either using Ctrl+Alt+T or by opening the menu and launching it from there type the following line which will prompt for your password.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minetestdevs/stable
followed with
sudo apt-get update
This will add the stable build which is updated every version from the guys that make Minetest, and then the next command will update the packages your system looks for when it runs updates. It should automatically detect that there is a newer version of Minetest than what you have installed. This won't install the newer version for you, to do that you need to either run
sudo apt-get install minetest
or launch your updated manager and refresh the cache, which should bring up an update for Minetest, which you can then install and enjoy.

I want to thank you for your help. My 5 year old grandson and I are playing now he is so happy. It worked like a charm. Thank you.

Glad I could be of assistance.
