    Troubles with the Upgrade to vBulletin 4.1.11

    The upgrade to vBulletin 4.1.11 broke the theme we are using - ShinyBlue. Unfortunately, it broke the theme with no error or warning messages giving us any guidance on exactly what was broken or how to fix it. We have been forced to update to the latest version of ShinyBlue -- which wiped out all of our customizations.

    We're still working on this issue.

    Don't select MobileStyles>ShinyBlue in the drop down box. I got a white screen and had to delete a cookie to get rid of it.

    Sucks to be you today. Sorry to hear the things giving you fits. If it makes you feel better I'm having all sorts of tech issues this week... Though come to think of it, if it actually makes you feel better to know I'm having tech issues too youre just a sick individual.

    Twitter buys out Posterous. The blogging outfit no one knows about! hahahahahhaa.....
    And why?
    Not that they wanted a blogging service, but because they wanted the engineers!
    See, once you get big and got some bucks, you can hire all sorts of people to make sure that all the techie stuff works.

    Hi,

    Key is do what I do. Don't up grade

    If it works don't fix it.

    It's an update of the version, meaning it probably has fixes for things that weren't working correctly or fixes for security issues. That's the main reason why you should always upgrade the software you use

    Hi,

    If the upgrade cost you money or time it is not an upgrade IMO it is a down grade

    You have to upgrade, even if it takes time.
    And sometimes, one must spend money.

    Are you still on Win 3.1?

    Are you still on wordpress version 1.0?

    When the problems introduced by an upgrade are worse than the bugs that we had workarounds for before then I'd say this is a complete fail. More to the point, however, is that vB simply sucks at this point. It's behind times. Support sucks, it breaks too easily, and on top of that you have to pay for it. I can't see how this thing can have a bright future. Just my opinion though.
