If I revert all templates, I bet the style and some of the mods will stop working right? Is it better for me to change styles (a 3.8.0 made style) when upgrading?

Sorry for the many questions but I hope someone can give me some clearity.

Thank you in advance.
Would all you quit whining, moaning, defending and hating this adsense crap and answer BozzaJos question...quoted above...
Agreed - one of the MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS in this entire thread (hell, one of the only questions, for that matter) and everyone's too busy whining about something that is so minuscule and isn't going to be changed in this discussion. Atleast they didn't roll out a new security token feature... my site still doesn't work right because of that horrible idea.

Is anyone willing to comment on the template changes yet? For those of us with customized styles and modifications, are we basically starting from scratch with this new version?

It was commented already. 3.8 is a major upgrade... you have to rever your entire site...

the best thing to do is to export your actual style, and compare it to the default style... you will then see what's different between versions.

This is basic to all major upgrades, and you are informed of that in the announcement. If you do not want to revert your templates, you live with it.

You always have to update your templates whenever you do an upgrade. It's on a case by case basis.

Technically, this isn't a support thread and we were instructed in the first post not to use it as such, but to ask those kinds of questions on vB.com.

I updated today, interestingly even though it says I have 5 templates that need to be reverted I have so far not found any issues in the forum. So far so good then

Upgraded the demo board and it seems to have some interesting new features. I like the new view in the ACP for viewing old a new templates. In some ways, it's easier to read.

You still have complete control over your own Google Account and you can Opt-Out at any time.

By choosing to associate your account, data is only shared based on what Google provides under their privacy policy. Which is agreed to when someone signs up for that program. You can re-read it here:
http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html

Google still controls all the data about your account. If you Opt-in then you agree to share it.

You make it sound like you can't even use vBulletin 3.8.0 unless we get your publisher ID. Even if you gave it, you still have control over it and it isn't associated until you give vBulletin.com access through your Adsense account manager.
Once you set it up, you can "grant" or "deny" access at any moment in your Setting.

I do have a quick question as well...

Several of my members who use the Social Groups function are a bit disappointed with the new look as it makes it difficult to tell where new activity happened in the Social Groups.

I don't know quite what they are talking about because I barely touch them, but some that are complaining are on the mod staff so there are people that do that can effect changes.

Anyway, is there something, a way to inform them or a way to change its appearance so they can see new activity?

--------------- Added 14 Jan 2009 at 02:51 ---------------

Question resolved. I figured out that what they wanted was the "View All Groups" to be easy to access and I added it to the Community dropdown menu...

I am new to this and just updated to 3.8. The heading colors are similar to here, but on the old version it actually faded from one blue color to another. I can't find where to change the header colors and what color option would that be?

I can certainly see why this would be an advantageous feature & relationship for you. And I love the idea that you can sign up from this site and that Jelsoft gets a finders fee. However, you really should provide a local way to do this. In this day and age, not providing the option makes you reek of big brother and it seems strange that you wouldn't expect a backlash. This private information really has no business being in your databases/logs.

I'm not upset as I won't likely ever use the feature. However, so very rarely do you guys do something that wouldn't make me proud of your product, I thought it worthy of a reply.

The more I use 3.8.0... the more I think that the guys at Jelsoft are off their rocker...

1. The new pictures & album section is prone to users gaming the "update" system; as well as the valid updates only reading permissions from the primary usergroup, instead of the total permissions of a user (so if only secondary usergroups can upload images, then you will NEVER have updated albums)...

2. The new social groups section is constructed poorly. The code for this page is different from all other pages; I was having style incompatibilty problems with this page that I never had on any other pages.

3. Not to mention, there whole idea of a Category Cloud in the social groups is just assanine. Only certain groups should be put specific categories; because you may want to hold those categories as "prestigious". But you know what? With the cloud system, these prestigious categories are so small that you can barely even read them. Wouldn't you want the prestigious categories to STAND OUT?!

4. Let me also not forget that the social group discussions are BACKWARDS (just like the picture album comments).

5. Having to signup for google adsense on vbulletin.com BEFORE you upgrade. Now this is just stupid. I just upgraded, made all my edits... then I find out that it has Google Adsense support... but I need to upgrade again?!
