Re: Forum Upgrade to vBulletin 5?

IE10. I do have Mozillar Firefox too, but I prefer the older IE. I only use Firefox for those sites I visit that no longer seem to support IE10.

Re: Forum Upgrade to vBulletin 5?

I tried IE11, but didn't like it so went back to 10. Firefox is a bit better, but I hate all those stupid tab things they have on browsers these days.

Re: Forum Upgrade to vBulletin 5?

So... 3 1/2 years later and no visible progress. The Brexit thread was young but already in full swing when this thread was started.

Will the forum software ever be upgraded or are we stuck with the current clunky and insecure version until the end of time? Enquiring minds need to know.

Enquiring Hairy, to be honest, I am glad that people have our EF wellbeing in their kind hearts. I wouldn't panic. I did move your question to the biggest admin of ours, you can, of course, privately ask EB as well.

So - it definitely is on "to do" list, good news. When they get to it, they get to it.

Good news indeed I was under the impression that the policy was "let it wither on the vine"

Well, my GD forum tried it a few years ago with a similarly aged version of vBulletin and it was a disaster. Had to roll back to the old version again. Now moved on to Discourse.
