    Straight Dope Message Board moving from vBulletin 3.8.7 to ... Discourse?

    The Straight Dope Message Board is a "legacy forum" -- online for over 20 years, and one of the longest-established big boards. After starting off with UBB, the site switched to vBulletin a few years later. It's been running nearly stock vB 3.8.7 for close to a decade. Over the past two...

    vBulletin adoption of plugin system

    First off I have been doing this for decades (early 80s if you count BBSs). My first venture to a purely online hosted community was using UBB 5.x (UBB was the leader back then). Back then it was a flat file system, and with my site growing we pressed the envelop and developed a MySQL backend...

    Why is there so much vB hate?

    I can't help but notice how many times I've browsed this forum only to read how terrible vB software is. Let's say (hypothetically) that is it, why is it always a repeating campaign theme on this website? @TheChiro mentioned: If the majority have moved on, why do people still complain? It's...

    Seriously thinking about making the switch to Xenforo from vB4

    Over the last several months, I have been thinking about if I should upgrade my forum to vB5 or switch entirely to Xenforo2. I have over 100k registered members (10k active in the last year and over 14M posts). I also have a number of custom applications that use the login structure in order...

    VB is still a thing?

    I'm surprised Internet Brands hasn't sold VB yet. Of course they would likely have to take a loss on it at this point. VB.org and many older VB sites won't and aren't upgrading to VB5. The whole thing is a mess. I remember when new updates would come out and everyone was quick to upgrade to...

    I'm looking for anyone willing to sell me their vBulletin 4.x license(s)

    I couldn't find a way to edit the last topics title, it said "for" instead of "4" which made it look like I was trying to trade licenses, which is not the case, I'm trying to pay someone money for them. I've been looking for somewhere I can find two vBulletin 4.x without expiration for a...

    Upgrade Time....but to where?

    Since 2004 I've had a small forum that has run successfully on vBulletin 4 and, for the last few years I've been a bit of an absentee landlord. The forum has been stalled on vBulletin 4.2.2 for a number of years and, following some emails about recent issues from my users, it seems that the...

    Thinking about moving from vBulletin to Discourse

    I am thinking about moving from vBulletin to Discourse as I feel as time has changed and how forums are utilized it was time to move to something that better integrates with other media. I am not under the illusion that this will jump start my forums, but other things like the Discord channel...

    Because vBulletin5 rules the world!

    I saw this on vBorg, and just couldn't bring myself to reply there. However I really would like to read replies from folks here at TAZ. To me this is one of the silliest most ridiculous posts ever on the web, perhaps some of you won't think so. (It took me about 12 minutes to stop laughing long...

    Massive drop in Skimlinks clicks since moving to XF?

Revenue of course has also fallen. I have triple confirmed the same javascript code is on every page...

    Should we upgrade our vB 3.8.11 forum?

    Hi everyone. So glad I discovered this community. I'm one of the admins on the Rising Sun 4WD Club of Colorado forum. We stood up vBulletin in 8/2005 and it's been great for connecting with our local community of Toyota 4WD vehicle owners. Our stats: Threads: 26,276 * Posts: 312,112 *...

    vBulletin and GDPR

    I'm starting to think GDPR might be the final nail in the vb4/5 coffin. There are still a lot of forum owners running those versions. What have you been able to do to comply with GDPR other than update your policies?

    Disallow All Moderators From Deleting Calendar Events

    Anyone know how I can set vBulletin where moderators, super mods etc cannot delete an event in the calendar? Is there a setting I'm missing or is there a plugin or mod for that?

    Time to move on from vB4, but where to go?

    The writing is on the wall, and has been for some time, not least since it vBulletin 4 was declared end of life. I need to find a way going forward with my TalkClassical forum. The site is still very much alive and currently has 1.3 million posts, but I don't see any way to move forward with it...

    Get vBulletin 3.7.x Compatible with PHP 5.6?

    I have 3 vBulletin 3.7.x forums hosted on my server. None of them get sufficient traffic to justify a new forum license. This has not been a problem until today as someone is attacking my dedicated server and causing httpd to not respond to any requests. It's not even a DDoS. httpd just stops...
