Up to beta 5, this thing really doesn't want to go final!

Re: vBulletin 3.7

Yeh I updated our forums as well.
BTW EP you need to take a look at your templates. The code for logged in members changed to allow a nice notifications menu.
Its not too bad to implement. You just need to add a line to your template. I used this below the last_visited_at phrase:
PHP:
<if condition="$show['notifications']"><br />
   <span id="notifications"><a href="usercp.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[your_notifications]:</a> <strong>$notifications_total</strong></span>
   <script type="text/javascript"> vBmenu.register("notifications"); </script>
  <else />
   <if condition="$show['pmstats']"><br /><phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[private_messages_nav]</phrase></if>
  </if>
</IF>

Re: vBulletin 3.7

I updated all templates that were out of date, which template is this specifically?

Re: vBulletin 3.7

navbar by default but it depends on your template. If you search for
PHP:
<if condition="$show['pmstats']">
it should get you in the area ;)

Also are you using batch mode for notification emails or instant?

Re: vBulletin 3.7

Why let vBulletin queue email and send it when it is meant to be forum software, not a mail server. The mail server is meant to send email, so let it do it's job!

Re: vBulletin 3.7

3.7 is final now and I am just preparing to do a neat upgrade.
Unlike the betas I will be doing this slowly to remove redundant files etc. so will take a little longer.

I don't anticipate many template changes between the final and last release candidate so the forums won't be disabled.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
