I really hate the new updates every two months. That means I'll have to do a ton of work, templates edits, ect. (because I have a custom style).

Just trying to get more people renew the members area license and earn more money! Very disappointing.

readjono, it said I was still running 3.7.0 -- I just left it a few minutes, refreshed the page and it changed the version number.

Nobody is forcing you to install the 2-monthly updates.

But you should always run the latest version anyway. What if one is a security patch? I'll have no choice to upgrade. Failed attempt IMO.

If a security issue is discovered, then it will be released with an PL version, not during a scheduled bi-monthly update. All explained in the first post.

I have my opinion, and I'm sticking to it. I've seen a lot of unhappy people on vbulletin.com, too. Not only that, but here at vbulletin.org. Threads just get closed, so there is no point discussing...

Maybe if you had an opinion that wasn't already addressed in the announcement?

Stating that you don't want to install a new version every 2 month, has been replied to. You keep trying to make your point by introducing security updates into the debat, which already is covered in the announcement.

You are free to give normal constructive feedback and opinions, but if you just ignore the announcement and continue on the rant you have started, then i don't see how i can give a more accurate answer then what is already posted.

Everybody is allowed to have an opinion, you're even allowed to post it on a site as part of the discussion, providing constructive feedback with arguments. As with every situation you can't always please everybody. In this case you can't seem to be pleased. Thank you for expressing yourself I think everybody by now knows what you had to say. Leave some space for others to reply to this thread too dude.

Eh? I only mentioned it once, and it was an opinion. How have I ignored the announcement? I read the announcement and fully understand it. I just wanted to give my opinion in this thread, I thought that is what it is for? Is it not?

Floris, I know that everyone cannot be pleased, I was merely expressing my opinion. I am leaving space for others to reply, I'm not stopping them, am I? I don't want to get into argument how about this, but when someone replies to one of my certain posts, then I have to reply and give my thoughts again. Sorry, I guess.....

You make a good point. If someone replies to you, you can't just leave them hanging. Your a coder and you are use to replying to every little post no matter how small the problem. You have expectations and I can see you are above them. I do agree with your points. All though I will always be renewing because I love updates I do have to say I hate the updates that cause me to revert my templates. This is an issue with me considering I have a highly customized template. Of course ever since VBulletin 3.7 hit most plugins are all plugin and no template edits so it isn't as bad as it use to be.

Hi,

I updated to 3.7.1, but in the admincp, it remains as 3.7.0. Is this normal?

This upgrade screwed with my custom skins royally. Even after reverting affected templates, it totally ruined the whole forum. LOL.

Luckilly I had a backup.

Looks like I will be staying with 3.7.0 for a while. Come on vBulletin-- make upgrades easier already would you??

If you're using a custom skin, then reverting the templates, obviously it is going to mess your skin up. This is because it is reverting to the default vBulletin code, and your style maybe coded slightly different. You will need to compare, then do the updates yourself. Sorry.
