Re: vBulletin 3.8.3 upgrade complete

vBulletin 3.8.4 will be released on monday and unlike the past, I will be taking the entire site offline until the upgrade process is complete.
I would like to take this opportunity and tell you all that it has been a great couple of years with you. :p

in his own words

The upgrader is pretty clever this time around so you can give it a go, however regardless of whether you do an upgrade or a clean install you should always backup everything you think you might need.

Nah, its just now we have so many more templates modified, seems sensible to just leave it off for a short period while I get templates upgraded and modified.

Installing vbseo, it should work with what vb alredy has but may display incorrectly with some of my custom work, but I will fix it :)

Seems to be working well for the most part, news rss feed doesn't currently have the new style links and on some threads the blog links down in the bottom right don't seem to work.

I am working on fixing both (latter needs crawlabiltiy help as I have no idea whats going on!)

Re: vBulletin 3.8.3 upgrade complete

Yeah, got some help from Crawlability to fix the issue, just need to make sure our sitemaps are correct and what not and keep tabs on it. Should be able to leave it and it will do the rest.

vBulletin update is not out yet, but once it is will start the offline work and research and then begin the updating process.

Not sure if it has anything new and exciting in, but we shall see - mostly PHP update fixes, had it been security it would have been alot sooner.

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
