Currently we are testing the upgrade of our site to the latest version that vBulletin is offering with 4.0 RC2 currently.

Okay, so apparantly I downloaded just the forum


When I should of downloaded the Publishing Suite


So I am going to start the test site all over again but I have to say that the test from vBulletin 3.8.4 Patch Level 1 upgrade to vBulletin 4.0 RC4 was successful. Very clean and no issues.

Some things to expect:

All your applications/modifications don't work (change to disable in plugin manager)

All your Style/Template's won't work (it will default to new vb4.0 style)

All your Style/Template modifications don't carry over (example navbar changes)

Go through Maintenance and click on each maint item once

But Social Groups carried over with permissions intact

Forums and User Groups carried over with permissions intact

Albums & Pictures carried over with Private Albums still Private

This new version is just too nice to leave on the testing bed so I upgraded the main site.

Now the downer is that I no longer have access to the Garage until they update the software, which is one of my favorite add-ons. So for those of you looking for the Garage, its coming but is now on hold until CND releases version 2.1 which will work with vBulletin 4.0

Now I am working on Classifieds which should work.

Personally, I like the change. It is very clean and I'm getting the hang of where everything is.

I miss the GARAGE and CLASSIFIEDS you had before. I hope those will come back soon.

ALSO before you could insert an image and could browse your Albums for a photo to put inline with your blog or forum post. Bring that back as well...

Great job!
