The update was so major it should've been called 4.2 series due to the extremely significant change.
I don't think many of us were as prepared for 4.1.4 as we should've been. That's my point.

EDIT: Even if it is our fault for eating too many cheeseburgers.
Thanks for understanding but my site's arteries are more clogged than most forum owners.

I have almost 40 different forum skins.

I try to set them as child styles as much as I can to reduce the headache though.

Hey Paul are you reading that? That's why I'm complaining. So don't pay me any mind dude.

I have a lot of skins so when one thing breaks it's like times 3 cause of the amount of skins I have.

I love vbulletin. I work hard as hell on my site since I first started. I'm allowed a lil moaning.

I do think that its time for vBS to start caring about mods. There are too many mods abandoned because coders no longer have a license and therefore no permissions on vb.org and no current vb installation to create updates for their mods. This hurts vb.org and therefore decreases the value of vbulletin itself.
Oh wow really? I thought the license was lifetime for the series you bought.

With that said, I'll keep you as an admin. You can experiment with the latest versions anytime you want.

My members LOVE your all topics mod. It's really relieved a problem I've had since I became a webmaster.

Oh okay. I'll figure out how to create a test site then. Thanks for the good advice.

If I understood it correctly his account was linked to his former employers license. When the employment ended, his account no longer was licensed.

I don't know the specifics. But, if his email was still associated with a customer account, whether vB3 or vB4, then he would still be able to download here and get PMs.

I have Photopost installed on my site and it works fine.

Not the Photopost Gallery though but the standalone.

Joe, the revised vB versioning system was debated for quite a bit, all for naught (may have been during your big sleep if you missed it). The current mentality that (paraphrasing) 'version numbers are meaningless' is one that a lot of people disagreed with it, with a lot of feedback from coders, but it did no good. Personally I suspect that even if some of the current IB team agrees that the versioning scheme should go back to the way it was that IB will just continue as-is for the forseeable future.

I was awake for the "why is this called 4.1.0?" questions and I know the official position is that the numbers are meaningless now... still doesn't mean I won't point out this was a bad decision that could have been fixed with calling this 4.2.0. Plus it would make the stoners happy.

At this point though throwing stones at their bad decisions won't make any difference since they aren't going to change the versioning system they currently have in place.
