Upgrade from vB 4.2.5 to vB 5.6.7 questions

What hacks from vB 4.2.5 are standard inclusion for vB 5.6.7?

Our tech says the all vB 4.2.5 hacks/mods will be gone permanently once upgrade to vB 5.6.7 is done.

Here is a list of hacks/mods we have currently....

- check remember me and rules box
- custom copyright
- advanced post thanks/likes
- iTrader
- iTrader tab
- members who have posted
- miserable users
- prevent certain time zones from registering
- quote improvements
- remove quoted images and videos
- image resizer
- thread reader enhancements
- Vsa bump threads
- Vsa advanced forum statistics
- Vsa advanced forum registration
- Vsa visitors in last X hours
- separate sticky threads

Are any of the above hacks/mods standard in vB 5.6.7?

None of the vb 4 plugins work in vb5.
Before moving to vb5, remove all plugins that use vb4.
In vb4, shift the files in the topics to the database from admincp.
Completely delete the vb4 files found in ftp.
Upload vb5 files to ftp.
It asks for database information during installation, enter the database information of vb4, after entering it, the update will start.
Important: take a backup beforehand to restore vb4 on any error.
Donations always appreciated.

I understand that the mods from vB4 will not work in vB 5. My question is that when vB5 came out there were some added function to the software that were mods in vB 4.
I'm trying to find out what the added functions were/are.

Nothing from vb4 will work with vb5, and vb5 has a minimal number of addons and pretty much a dead addon community, so if you are looking to upgrade to modern forum software, you should probably explore the other platforms at this point, XenForo has pretty much all of what you are looking for or compatible mods with importers and a very active mod community, IPB probably has the same.
Better search

Donīt do it unless you have a rock solid reason. If your board works, stick with it.
