its just the look lol, the style section here should be smf 4.0 styles. actually all the styles look worse than smf default. every time vbulletin upgraded i felt behind, this time wow, sticking with 3.8 makes me feel like im actually using a vbulletin board. when i made an update on my forum about the 4.0 look, i think my members just passed out from the uglyness. it would be just embarrassing to use and please no offense to those that think it looks good. i know its in beta stage and maybe be really good to use but for gods sake, why does it look like smf cross phpbb with a finish touch of IP.boards. you know years ago when people mention vbulletin i picture how good it looked, and was like yeah wow i'd love to own a vbulletin board, just the default its self was enough to impress me and others. people would say join his new site its a vbulletin, and strait away they were members.
some of those people has stood by me all these years have said to me "do not use 4.0" lol, now thats saying something.
vbulletin 3.0 to vbulletin 3.8 put the wow in the meaning vbulletin.
now when i see the 4.0 look, its like a fat boy fell in the mud and never got back up if 4.0 is going to keep that look then god help us all. if i never knew about vbulletin and say found it on google, i'd take one look and run, lets not forget the price, like omg. for 4.0 at least have the vbulletin look a tiny bit, not a copy of smf default, god ip.board and all the well known free boards must be laughing. sorry again to those whom like it. also my last sook about the look of 4.0, i'll try to tell my brain theres no such thing.

edit: i must say the CMS look amazing.
Sorry Guys, just a little busy lately.

Hate it. For me its a SMF ripoff. I look also around on the official vbulletin website. It looks ugly and i know for sure, when i am going to upgrade, i will lose a lot of members. Thats why i staying for a long time with 3.8.x. This board gives you a real vbulletin feeling, looks good. But the new one. Brrrrr. Maybe it will be better in the future, but there is a lot of work to do with it before i will upgrade my forum.

I have installed a fresh VB40 beta board to play around with and test it and show it off to my staff ..

I think it has some great new features and i Like how the cms and blog tie into the board.. I as other are very worried about my styles and mods when I upgrade to 4.0 gold ..

I know most of my mods will be upgrading to support VB40 but a few ones I really enjoy I am unsure about but have hope that the dev's will upgrade them.

I just have to keep saying beta beta ... as I play around and very unstable beta i should say !!!

But for someone like me and my group who are not types and GFX people I have found out that changing some things on that side of the house a little easier to do

I had some trouble with my 3.7.3 site and opened the v4 Beta test site for the time being. There are things that are really cool. There is a bit of a learning curve but the response from the few folks that stopped by was positive.

In its current state, I'm not happy with it at all. There's a lot of weird overlapping going on with the navbar that I can't figure out, which is causing avatars to not show up and preventing the display of the quick reply box on some pages. I installed a test forum for my mods and I to tinker with and I'm embarrassed to admit to them that I don't know wtf is going on.

Same here. I was in the process of changing name/address and expanding the sites direction. So this is a perfect time to just go balls deep with vb4 and the mods I already have purchased will catch up with time and I'll roll them in as returning/additional features when the time comes.

I and my users are very happy with it so far, even in it's beta state as now the blog and cms are truly integrated which is the main reason why I bought 4.0 in the first place.
