      Forum Software Upgrade

      We need to install an updated version of the forum software that SkyUser uses.

      This work will take place later on this evening, and we should only be offline for a few minutes.

      Yes - We are upgrading to the full vBulletin Publishing suite. We only had the standard version before with the blogs as an extra.

      When we did the upgrade last month, we lost the blog functionality, as vBulletin changed the licensing arrangements, and we only did the minimum version of the software.

      This new upgrade is more or less the full version, although we may not enable everything initially.

      I will post a list of the changes etc once we have carried the upgrade out. (and provided we don't have to reverse the changes once done)

      Re: Forum Software Upgrade

      It's probably easier to link to vBulletin for the full list of differences, between the old software and the new one, rather than copy and paste them all.

      https://www.vbulletin.com/index.php?do=features

      Please note, we have not enabled everything so far, whilst we get to grips with how it works etc
