    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...

    Viable upgrade path from vB3?

    We have a very large forum running V3. Attempts to migrate to vB4 and vB5 (at least a year ago) failed because the database was too big. VBulletin support was unable to help and suggested that neither were viable upgrade paths for us. vB3 is lacking some features that have become important (a...

    vBulletin 4 removed from marketing

    As of last week, IB have removed the the vbulletin 4 sections from the main site. This includes the vb4 trial section, so its now no longer possible to create vB4 trials. The software itself remains available of course, this is just more of their desire to promote vB5 only (download and cloud...

    VB 5.3.0 - Impartial Review

    I know, people are going to claim that a part time support contractor for VB can't be impartial. I can only say that I disagree. Over the years I have not been a fan of VB5 and those who have come to me for personal recommendations can attest, I could not not in good conscious recommend sites...

    Looks like Lowtax is currently considering moving Something Awful from a heavily hacked vB2 over to XF. Would this be the biggest vB (or anything) to XF conversion so far if it happened? https://forums.somethingawful.com/announcement.php?forumid=1

    No more vBulletin here.

    For what it's worth I finally migrated the last of my pair of 19 year old web sites away from vBulletin 4.x over the weekend. They were running UBBThreads from 2001 then vBulletin 3.x then 4.x from 2005. First as one forum, then split across two separate domains. So despite Joe and Paul's noble...

    Convert vBulletin 3.8 to what?

    So I have an old board and I really don't want to buy anything. It has 300,000 posts, but it is not active anymore. Of course, it got hit with an injection attack, and as far as I know I must pay vBulletin just to patch it? What free forum product would be easy to switch too? (btw I have 2...
