    vBulletin has moved away from the 4x versions. They have introduced vBulletin 5. Is this something you guys would be interested in? This is not a simple upgrade for us, it will cost to buy the license. also, the move might not be pleasent. also, if we move to it and you are not happy it will be tough to backtrack. Take a look and let me know.

    License still only $295 for the upgrade? They should have staff that will migrate for you, and from what I've read, their utility makes it simple. You should be down for only a few hours. Not like a whole two months or anything. :jj:

    its a whole new core also. i haven't looked at it before last Friday but from the description i suspect it will invalidate all the current skins and mods; it sounds like the forum layout is dynamically built from the database at runtime which will require a formal API to expose the functions currently accessed by hooks in VB4 and below.

    It's a whole other version, I have no clue how the rep systems works yet. I have not purchased a license yet.

    If its in the budget, do it. Once they stop supporting 4, you're going to need to pay that amount to them for support to fix this one if it crashes and you can't fix it.

    you have to do that now. their support charges are not cheap. also they are not talking about dropping support for 4; they are not even dropping support for vb3.8

    a lot of things to consider.

    I coud get a license and setup a domain where we could beta test it.
