    New version of vBulletin, the forum software

    Vbulletin, which is the name of the software this forum runs on, recently released a brand new version of their software, 4.0. NS currently runs on 3.8.

    vBulletin is no longer supporting the 3.x series, so I will have to update the forum and the licence to be able to continue running vBulletin in the future.

    Once NS' licence expires, I will have to pay for an update to my 3.x licence, to a 4.0 licence. This will cost me some, but with your continued financial support, that will be fine

    I am going to try and get the new version of the board updated today.

    That means that the board will be closed for some periods of time while I do the upgrading, and you may stumble upon a lot of errors while I am doing the upgrading.

    Also, when the upgrade is complete, the board will look a little different than what it currently does. There will most likely be new features as well.

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you guys.

    And thank you to everyone for your continued financial support, whether it's a paid subscription, or just clicking on the ads. Every little bit helps!


    TODO LIST

    - Fix ads for paid subscription users
    - Video archive
    - TV & Radio hack
    - Fix themes
    - NS Chat

    Re: New version of vBulletin, the forum software

    The new boards are now up and running. There are some smaller kinks I have to take care of before it's working 100% like intended. For an example, ALL members are seeing Google Ads. I'm working on taking care of those quirks at the moment. Also, none of the old styles/skins/themes are working properly, so you'll have to hang in there with the default style at the moment

    All of the extra features are disabled until I can upgrade them to the latest version compatible with version 4 as well. (Example the Top 5 Stats that used to be on the top of the forums on the main page is one of those extra features that is currently disabled)

    ooh, the new forum board certainly looks VERY pretty. I still have to get used to how it all works, but it all looks awesome so far

    Will we no longer have the chat? Or the third party one that superag embedded?

    I have a feeling its just in the waiting stages until Julie gets all the new stuff to jive with the old setup. That would be my extent of computer lingo. But I have faith that she will find a way for us to communicate live again soon.

    A revamping from time to time is always nice. We'll just have to be patient until Julie gets everything up and running.

    You'll have a chat, at least the one superag supplies us with.

    It's like what the guys are saying, I just need a bit of time to get everything to work properly again Most of the extra features, like the chat, are coded for the 3.x series, and not for the 4.x, where there's been a lot of change in the code Just need to find the new updated versions of everything

    Ooooo, I like it. I'm a huge fan of the simple, clean styles of board layouts. Good luck getting it all working.

    Hehe, I understand I'm slowly working my way through all the extra features now, so I hope to find a new version of the chat, or another chat I can use
