Thumbs up vBulletin 5 Connect Finally Ready.....

New vBulletin 5 Connect





Hi everyone, I saw many changes on vBulletin.com today. The first news it that the whole style has changed, and no more login with your Customer ID, and now you can login with your email adress! Now also members area have got a new look. I guess the look of the Member Area is from the new vBulletin 5 connect. Yet not sure! After I logged in I saw a whole new style! And honestly I liked it. Its much more simple!

The other news is that the new vBulletin 5 Connect is finally ready! But there are more changes! The Check out www.vBulletin.com for more! I also wanted to give my feedback and say that I did not find any DEMO PAGE or a page where we can try it! But I think if you take a visit and try and see for yourself, then I am sure you will get a picture of how it will look like! Tho there are a few images of the new vBulletin 5 Connetc. This will be one of the best versions ever built, and the most expensive as well! The Price is for New License: USD$249.00 and Upgrade: USD$209.00!

I cant wait to hear more about it befor I purchase the version! I think I am stucked with vB3.8! Hopefully I am hoping for there will be an upgrade to vB5 from vB3.8! I will wait a bit more befor purchasing to make sure I dont lost my forum and database! So, What you guys think? Please comment below with your opinions and suggestions, and make sure to visit the page and check out the new style, by loging in to your account! Good luck !

Finally a Demo Page was Posted by
KATIE HUNTER: Demo https://www.vbulletin.com/vb5demo/

Unless there has been a major overhaul to the search functionality (for numerous reasons) & other back end functionality to improve performance, waste of money.

It is so so slow. I was looking forward to this and was very excited. But this is so slow that I cannot express my disappointment.

The title of this thread is a little misleading... I wouldn't call it ready...

Please remember it is only in Beta and you should not expect it will work perfectly. I would still recommend VB4 (which you still get with your VB5 license) for the time being for live sites.

At present, not for me I'm afraid. Doesn't look or feel right and as other have mentioned it is slow, hopefully as development progresses things will improve but just now in its present incarnation doubt I will be purchasing a license.

But I'll keep an eye on its development

I'm going to be 100% honest: the product at it's current state (Beta 10) is almost unusable: bugs everywhere and painfully slow. So if you ask me about my first impression I'll say: SUCKS.

I think that in the current state this should be Alpha and not beta. I am not impressed by the looks either. Looks very dull. I hope that the slow speed and and other issues will be resolved soon.

I did not like the default theme too. It looked much better in the screenshots but when I saw it live at the vb demo link I was a little disappointed. It was like a stripped off retro theme.

Well the demo for beta 10 hasn't impressed me any.

I am very thankful they are releasing a general beta. This allows me to develop some kind of road-map for the future. At lest I can get a glimpse of the new engine and their new code structure. At least they are being upfront and saying it is not ready. I appreciate honesty. This is a better start then with vbulletin4. I personally think they are still rushing the release, but the developers were probably given a dead-line. Everyone has a boss.

I'll ask here since Zachery doesn't know what I'm talking about: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...Facebook-Theme

I want to make a Facebook theme. Will this theme show up in Facebook or is the Facebook Connect aspect of vB5 only restricted to one skin?

I'll post some vB5 skins after someone lets me use their vb5 installation to make skins. Gonna post it on your site after I'm done.
