Post Release: here another revenue plugin integrated in the core... Why? Who really wants it? How it is possible that VB guys continue to introduce revenue plugins by default? It seems they want to gain more money from referrals than from sells of VB.

I really hope to see more other popular plugins introduced in the next subversion (don't want to wait a 4.3). It's so simple, they just can look at vbulletin.org and see what is there. Or they just can look at other boards.. A lack that I really want to see is the integration of Gravatar system, it's free and worldwide used and also already integrated in many other boards but VB.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
Hi,

Paul's 'Member Visit Tracking' mod was used (on my board) prior to vB4.2 upgrade. After the upgrade the 'Members who have Visited' mod is disabled by vB4.2. Does the mod need to be enabled again?

Thank you

No don't turn on the old mod, use the new vB Visiting Members settings in ACP->Settings->Options->Visiting Members

IE7 is also unsupported. They didn't go out of the way to break things on ie6/7 but they won't fix issues that only happen in ie 6 or 7.

You seem to have answered your own question. Don't forget vBulletin is a business, any way to make additional profit without upsetting customers too much will no doubt be considered.

I say this as an individual with experience in business, my position with vb support does not make me privy to ANY official VB business deals.

Thank you, nhawk.

I did enable the mod on test on forum. Is this potentially a problem?

I honestly don't know. But the new feature in vB is the same as the mod, so I'd just leave it turned off. Perhaps even uninstall it because it's a built in feature now.

I'd try uninstalling on a test site first. I don't think it will cause a problem, but I'd do it that way just to be safe.

You can safely uninstall any of Paul's add-on mods that are now built into vb.

I would much appreciate it if instruction on how to integrate addons with the activity stream would be posted. Several addon developers are looking for this information, so they can update their addons to vb4.2 and get content from their addon into the activity stream.

Weren't there a handful of hacky things to fix issues on IE6/7 for earlier versions actually causing issues on IE8/9 though? I can imagine any of those will be removed if they already haven't been.

There isn't a datamanager class for this?
