So what exactly would be lost with the transition? (what plugins here aren't available as features of 4.0)
I'm in development with vBulletin 4.0 to bring it to our forums.
It will come with no plugins that we have now, but most of the good stuff is built into the new version.
If anyone wants certain 4.0 plugins installed, please post, i'd be more than happy to install them.
Will update with progress here when I get further.
I'm actually making a check list. I'll post it when I'm done.
But things like downloads, bbcode extras, pm hacks, statistics, post hacks, profiles are overhauled and more.
live forum stats at the top
smiley box below editor
one touch ban
quote post in PM
vb ad management
vb google maps api
So the wiki doesn't matter because we have that new mediawiki as a separate install people will start using
live forum stats are the new posts and new threads, and i want that back so ill checkout the updated version of that
downloads section will stay dead, we will use the autoappmart instead
I gotta bring back the ads for non members
I gotta bring back the classifieds section
SEO is important and will need to upgrade vbseo
vb garage is definitely not supported, but i can make a plugin for you guys based on whatever specs you want to see.
project tools needs updating
We also need a 'watch this dodgy looking user' mod so mods can highlight a user they may think is a spammer but hasn't showed their hand yet.
It seems as thought the 1 touch ban dev has passed away. So its not supported in 4.0. If anyone feels like doing some research on any forums that are on 4.0 and have it, let me know, otherwise i will need to re create it.
