    What Would You Do?

    I have been out of touch with forum software for a while now but have been toying with the idea of creating a couple of forums in different verticles. I currently own 5 vBulletin Licenses. I have 2 VB 3.x licenses with branding free and 3 VB 4.x suite licenses. I am trying to decide the best...

    Why do people still hate vBulletin 5

    I was wondering why do people hate vb5? I understand when it first came out it was slow and very buggy But in the years since then its gotten ALOT better and loads a lot faster, and most bugs have gone, It feels a lot more polished now, but people are still recommending not to upgrade to vB5..

    VB is hiring Sales Representative?

    Not trying to advertise this for them but Id be curious to see who wants to take his/her career to a new level by working as a VB5 sales representative. It will be like playing hard mode on an RPG/action game, but it may be a worthy experience for any aspiring marketing people who desire...

    vB 5 Cloud - worth it?

    I want to start a new forum. I was looking at IPS and I liked it. I came across vB 5 Cloud and the prices are affordable. Does any of you use vB 5 Cloud, what are your experiences? Is vB 5 now actually stable?

    VB4 vs VB5 for my first forum

    Ok Team, I need some advice please. I'm starting my first forum. I had to choose VBulletin because of the software that I'm bolting it onto (I run a marketplace) and the credentials get shared between the two. Long story short, I had to choose VB for simplicity. Anyway, I've purchased the...

    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...

    Found/Closed 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...
