Absolutely. I wanted to get a couple quick fixes in for 3.8 since there's still a good amount of people using it.

Status/progress will be posted on Twitter (@OneCoolMofo) and my web site.

On a side note, thank you for your service LCN. :)

Deviation, are there instructions on how to upgrade from the 3.7 version?

SouthEastSxS 08 Jul 2010 03:48

Hi, any news on getting this ported to v4.0.4u1. This is exactly what I am looking for unless you can tell me how to do it another way.

Many Thanks.

I have this on 3.8 and its a large part of my business income. I'm desperately waiting for a 4.0 version before I can upgrade.

stemmy 19 Jul 2010 12:22

There aren't too many updates from that version. There are no database changes. You should be able to update your board to 3.8.x and then apply the updates for vB.Sponsors. The link.php has changed so be sure to replace that as well. As always, backup your data first. ;)

Well if you can get me more hours in the day, perhaps. ;)

It is being worked on. I don't have an ETA as of yet though. As always, you can keep up with me on Twitter (@OneCoolMofo) or my website (http://digitaldeviation.com).

Cant get it to work

Hi. Looks like a great mod but I cant get it to work for me.

I am on 3.8.2 and I am also not sure how to install it.

What do you do with vbulletin style.xml. Just upload it as a product? And what about .txt files?

Can someone please help with this?

Thanks.

Fabian
