There seems to be more options in the CP like the Photo/Albums, and the Social Networking..?

But i can't seem to find the Main CP, where you can see the subscribed threads, reps etc etc...:?

Ooooh, if you're taking suggestions, I'd love if you got rid of the little blue marks that indicate rep power. I think it would be much better if it were just a number. Plus, they continue in another line for some people, which is quite annoying.

The New Version has some interestin additional features, but they seem to be abit of a hassle n distraction :hmm:

Plus, m sad th beneficial member pages have gone and been replaced by just a chat box? :omg: which will most likely become a smelly ol spam box :exhausted)

more work for the poor Mods :X (n already so many seem to be leaving :'( )

Okay, think I'll shut up now - not like I'm staying either :uhwhat

^Right, i tried just adding a tag, "Invalid link please contact Administrator" or something, but i just tried to add text, it has to be a link?

Also, i noticed the boards a lot slower...This new vBulletin heavier than the last 1?
Also, are all the previous mods you installed still compatible with this 1, as well as the themes/skins..?

Yeh tags work, i did the test...

Oh and Sajid, you know in the upgrade? It will of kept all your mods that you have made coz they have special programmes that can detect them right, so they know not to replace that bit of code in the upgrade.

But one problem you have is, it deleted all the manual code edits you did yourself. I dont know which Admin originally did it (Thank god they did) but they deleted all the Tables ( <tr> ) around the instant messaging tables in the memberprofile.php script.

So the problem that arises here, is people can enter their instant email adress, (MSN, Yahoo etc) and its viewable! Them tables are there!

you can see it in mine, (obviously i didnt enter my real one) but if you click into my profile, then into the Contact me tab, you'll see what i mean, has my fake MSN there.

Just thought id say that, you might have already realised :D

It's still there. When you click on the member's username and it takes you to their public profile, there are tabs above the visitor message text box (the tabs are: visitor messages, About Me, Statistics, Friends, Contact Info) click on the tab that says "statistics" and you should see that feature there still.

^At first bro, i thought that was harsh, now i agree.

hmmm, for other forums, i would say that the upgrade is ok, the new friends feature and stuff, but for LI, i preffer the old one, thinking about it. It felt better then.

Not just the look, but the whole feel of the board, now it feels a little more unclean, or is that just me...

Then where it says ' Last Edited by Ahlaam ' That will be a link, click that link, and you have the edit post history...

The reason why its just available with that skin, will be coz its not compatible with vb 3.7.0
