What are your thought about vBulletin 6? What do you think it should include?

blind-eddie 02 Jun 2015 22:33

It should include Vbulletin 3.8.8 functionality and ease of editing and creating addons and styles.

VB6?
Hopefully they concentrate on getting VB5.2 right first.

I wouldn't count on it. From what I've seen even in the other brands new releases, forum software is more like a social networking site. Some are more limited on functionality than vb5.

Developing vb5 is as useful as developing Windows 8. If something is that broken then its time to start over from scratch. But obviously that's not going to happen.

Windows 8 has a significant amount of under the hood improvements on both the server and OS level. Sadly people blew the start screen significantly out of proportion and well it ruined a great OS.

vBulletin 5 has some really great concepts, sadly they didn't execute as well as they should have and missing the ability to inject php in some way where you need it is a huge hindrance. I did my best to push addon stuff forward. But I'm not involved in that anymore.

I see you are no longer part of vb support here why

I kept (and keep) trying to get his up the priority list, Kevin did the same before he left, sadly its still not much closer to being done, which is why in 2+ years we have just 57 modification releases. I fear that by the time a hook system is implemented, there will be no one left interested in using said system.

If he said on .com site I never go over there

cellarius 03 Jun 2015 07:31

Wait... Kevin left? When did that happen?

Princeton 03 Jun 2015 14:45

I've been sticking with vbulletin but I'm now seriously looking for alternatives.

They should hurry up and make an announcement / release it / something ... vb5 is a total disaster - no one wants it.

cellarius 03 Jun 2015 15:08

Problem is: Given that there's even less developers this time, and even more know-how has left since the development of vB5, and the pressure coming from the management will probably even higher - I'm not so sure vB6 can be much of an improvement. Remember: vB5 was once supposed to be the make-good for vB4...

He got another job local to him, and left about 2/3 weeks ago.

Release what ?

There isnt any such thing as vBulletin 6, not even on a drawing board atm.

BirdOPrey5 04 Jun 2015 13:56

Hopefully IB just buys a new forum and calls it VB6.

SaN-DeeP 04 Jun 2015 21:59

Please fix vbulletin 4.x and/or enhance the same.
Vbulletin 5.x is not at all recommended as tested on some site(s)..

But 4.x plays a very important role bringing in social media support (configure accordingly) and responsive site..

TheLastSuperman 05 Jun 2015 03:03

I haven't even began suggesting vB5 to my clients, 99% are on vB4 and vB3 with the few who did make the jump to 5.x regretting it heavily.

RAWR! vB6? WHAT'S DAT? Ahhhhhh I C vB6 = Very Broken v6

I mean can we get someone to finally do something instead of telling us to vote for something that is apparently not COMMON SENSE yet should be (@management, just say HEY guys re-include the plugin/hooks system we dropped the ball by removing it, we removed the ability to customize vB which is why many were directed to our software to begin with... our bad, we didn't realize it would change things back then and make us look bad - thanks cheers etc).

If they'd re-include a hooks/plugin system like Paul mentioned it would change things, they won't though because of the p0wertards who ruined vB's name (imo) after patiently and maliciously waiting several months before launching a tard campaign to help hack or teach others how to hack over 30k vBulletin forums. I said it in the past, I'll say it now *me thinks* someone at IB simply dropped the ball by removing the plugin system in an effort to save face - case in point you never cut off your nose to spite your face.

Edit: Vote for it here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-10333
*Mumbles that this is sooooooooooo (insert expletive here) stupid we shouldn't even be required to do this (insert expletive here) (insert expletive here) (insert expletive here)... *cough *cough AS YOU WERE, NOTHING TO SEE HERE lol
