Crazy Downgrade Question...

ok...I know this may sound totally insane, but is there a way, to go from 4.1.5 to say....3.6.12? Without losing the members and the posts ect?

I know it's crazy/

....but aren't we all just a little crazy?

Well...4 is really growing on me. It is actually quite powerful once you get into it.

I have 2 boards. My main board will never leave the 3 series. My second board is on 4 .1.5, about to be updated to 4.1.6.

I just wanna see if there is actually a way to downgrade without losing the posts/threads/members/etc...

I've seen the short answer: yes, but it's really difficult to do, there is no "uninstall" or "revert" in the software. And as far as I know, no one's really developed a set procedure.
I am yet to see any compelling reason to want 4, but seen alot of reason to stay far away from it. I'm a 4 hater, I distribute the haterade and the hater tots for it.

That's funny right there!!

I wonder if I delete the extra "4" files...overwrite the regular files with the series 3 version files, make the correct changes to the config.php...that might work....

...maybe.....

Thank you for the info.

From what I read, you lose all your attachments.

Now, luckily this isn't my main board, it's more of a playground for some of us from my main board...it's all private....

BUT...

The attachments are the best part...lol...if you know what I mean....

(No perverts, it's not a porn forum....lol...jeez)

But there are some attachments that are kind of important...

idk...I'll run this my the members and see what they say...

Thanks again, and if any more info pops up, I'm sub'd to this thread...lemme know!!
