    Hi everybody,

    I just upgraded the forums to the latest vBulletin version, or at least the latest version of vBulletin 4. Please let me know if you encounter any problems. :)

    Mike

    PS. I don't think there are any new features.

    Hi Nicomon and Zoé :)

    That was an easy fix. I think this was the easiest upgrade in a long time. It helps when vBulletin hardly makes any changes (or improvements).

    Thanks!

    Je suis still seeing everything in French.

    Okay, it's fixed now.

    Why not to upgrade it to vBulletin 5?

    It was a great change (full of new features) when you did so with vBulletin 4 from vB 3.

    Unfortunately, vBulletin 5 is a disaster and is not really an option for the future of this forum (or many other forums). You might notice that very few (or no?) large forums have upgraded. Many things do not work right and I still can't get emailed about announcements, despite being subscribed to the proper forum. The company behind it is in disarray, and it looks like they will never produce good forum software again. I am still trying to figure out what to do beyond vB 4, but for now, there are no really good options.

    Thanks for the answer.

    As they say, "if it works don't fix it".

    :thumbsup:

    Actually the saying is: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". :)

    Hi again,

    Recently, in the French default style, every thread in the list is following by 'started by" instead of "démarré par".

    Fixed it. Thanks Zoé :)

    Thanks Mike!
    (in fact, in French there is just the name of the thread opener without "démarré par"...)

    This is true in the English-language interface as well (just the name of the thread author without the words "started by"). It's deliberate. :)
