      vBulletin Upgrade

      We at some point this week (possibly this evening late on) will be upgrading to the latest version of vBulletin. Our website should be offline for approximately 30 minutes, (as this is quite a complicated upgrade) and if we have any issues, we will revert back to the older version.

      The list of changes to the new version.

      Activity Stream - Up to the minute streams of the content you choose. Supports Articles, Threads, Visitor Messages, Social Groups, Albums and more. Activity Streams show as a main community wide stream that is filterable by the end user so they only see the content they want to see. Activity Streams are also available on the personal profile of users so friends can keep up with the activity of each other quickly and easily.

      Here is a quick look at this feature, although tbh I am not convinced it is 100% right for using yet. And also, I feel a little similar to FB






      Navigation Manager - Gain full control over your community's navigation bar and tabs. Use the Navigation Manager to create new tabs, links, and sub-menus for your site. This allows you to highlight the parts that are important to your community. Addon Developers can easily tie into the Navigation Manager giving you complete control over the links they provide without always resorting to plugins or editing templates.

      Various Minor Features

      Members who have Visited Today
      Cron-based Batch Email Sending
      UserCP Reputation Display
      Reputation Notification
      User Profile Reputation Display
      Who has Read a Thread
      Doublepost Prevention
      Enhanced Reputation Checks
      Reverse Proxy Support

      And of course some minor bug fixes.

      Re: vBulletin Upgrade

      As you have probably already noticed, the upgrade to the latest version of vBulletin has now taken place.

      Over the next few hours we will continue to incorporate the rest of the changes, and so things may change so to speak as you are viewing the forum. However, the most critical part has now been carried out.

      As per usual. any issues, please let us know in this thread.

      Re: vBulletin Upgrade

      Since the update the Quick links bar to the left has returned, is there a setting somewhere that I have missed to turn this off. I can get rid of it per page but then it returning when loading up another page.

      Try now Alan, I upgraded the mod as well, and obviously it defaults to forced open for everyone, rather than some usergroups can choose it to close it.

      Re: vBulletin Upgrade

      Ok thanks.
      It's probably something to do with my browser & java.
      I can usually find a workaround.

      edit: Turn off java lol

      If you reply twice within 5 mins to the same thread it will merge the posts.

      Did you just reply the once?
