There are some mods for early versions of vBulletin (3.6, 3.7, and 3.8) that are still compatible with the latest version of VB 4.x. Some of these mods are very unique and no newer versions are available.

The purpose of this article is to document some of the most popular mods for VB 3.x that are compatible with VB 4.x directly or with minor fixes (and links to the fixes if applicable.)

This is NOT a thread to request mods be updated to VB 4.x!

I have what I believe is a pretty good list to get started. If you know of any other 3.x mods you are using on VB 4.x please post a link to them here and I will periodically add then to this post.

Without further ado...

Note- As VB 3.6 and 3.7 mods were "Archived" their attachments were no longer accessible so any mods mentioned above for VB 3.6 and VB 3.7 I have moved to the VB 3.8 Add-Ons forum so they can continue to be downloaded and useful for 3.x and 4.x license holders alike.

Just to add a couple things, in some of these modifications, you may need to edit the product .xml so it will import/be compatible with vBulletin 4. To do this, open the product .xml and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And change that to:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Also, the fixes for a few of these to work in vBulletin 4 are posted within the modification thread. Remember, search is your friend
