Any chances that support for vBulletin 3.8.x might be forthcoming? A large number of boards, especially Big Boards, are still relying on vB 3.8.x given its general stability over vB 4.

Mostly. I recently switched over to storing stylesheets as files and found that unless I turn this mod off while I'm saving those changes, it'll say that it can't write to the stylesheet directories. Ownership and permissions are fine and it saves the stylesheets as it should when this mod is disabled.

It is pretty annoying to have to remember to shut this off every time I touch something else that will force a stylesheet save. Anyone else have this issue?

This looks really interesting..

I have a custom made CMS of my own, and I might see if I can integrate it with vB.

I guess you have no documentation on how we can integrate out own scripts with VBSSO and vBulletin?

Eg. my own CMS integrated with vB

If that's your own CMS and you would like to integrate it with vBulletin through vBSSO, I would be able to send you a brief API list and let your developers to work on this. If you are interested in this, just send me your contacts to PM.

Confirmed, unfortunately we had to uninstall the mod because of it.

Not really, vBSSO makes vBulletin registered members registered members on wordpress.

I have sent you a simular message via your site. Would like to start a conversation to see if this is something you would be willing to explore and do either through here or as a paid project. I am not sure the vbnetwork modification is being supported anymore and or I would like some additional functionality but what "it" does is along the lines of what I am hoping for.

Thanx for the quick reply
