I don't mean to be a suck up or anything, but I agree with both sides of view.

I mean, I love the updates, and it will surely help out and will benefits tons of users.

At the same time, i'm with jase2, I may not have a "custom" skin, but every two months is a pain in the rear end, I mean, I love to my forum to the latest version, just makes me feel safer, happier, and please.

Again, love the updates keep them coming, but perhaps these updates should only come when a security thread has occurred. This will eliminate any chances of vb.com updates creating a security breach. This way whenever an update is available it's meant to fix the security problem + add extra features.

I know the paragraph above is hard to understand, but some might get it.

It totally screwed with mine. Also, ibproarcade stopped working as well.

3.7.0 will have to do for now.

I agree with Jase2 too. I understand that updates are important, but update the whole files and templates by overwriting them is a real pain in the ***. A patch would be great and much less painful. Not disagreeing with the necessity of updating, but you would be very costumer-friendly if you could update by patch. Somehow! For now i'll stick with 3.7.0 too. Just had too much hard work from updating 3.6.8 to 3.7.0!

The bi-monthly upgrade release schedule is in direct response to alot of people asking for a tentative schedule at vb.com, so they can plan accordingly. It was asked for. The people who don't need it or want it of course are going to gripe about it.

I'm betting that if the devs don't feel that an upgrade is warranted, there won't be one. It's just a guideline. If people plan for one, and it isn't needed, there's a pleasant surprise.

Ohiosweetheart, it was asked by the 'regulars' on vbulletin.com. There are plenty of people and big companies who run a vBulletin forum and haven't participated on the vB forums -- so how is it asked for by the majority? Just the regulars on vB.com. I just think that it's the small minority who are very loud. The majority don't visit the vB forums, let alone vote for new features ect.

Baldilocks, I explained why it messed your style up in post #45.

Like I say, it's an opinion LOL.

All I'm saying is if patches for the fixes were given too, that way, anyone running custom skins, which is a large majority, can upgrade with ease. I know there's no pleasing everyone, that's why you should see both sides of the story....

Lets just move on.......... huh?

What kind of "patches" are you talking about?

Bug fixes or security updates. Also this wouldn't make any difference regarding styles: Either an update does require (mandatory) template changes or not. How it is distributed (patch/2-monthly update/security release) does not change if a template must be updated or not.

Thumbs down problems

Hi support team,

After last night upgrade I face some problems with some custom functions which work with 3.7.0 and dont with 3.7.1

See details

I have defined function -> xbt_postbit_attachment
in file xbt_functions.php


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I call this function via plugin and hook -> postbit_attachment


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

But not works anymore (not shows result in postbit)

Maybe some hooks or classes are changed?

Advise please!

thx

Jase I just re-read my post, and invite you to do the same. Nowhere in my post did I say that the schedule was asked for my any majority. I said "alot of people". And if you read the posts over there, you'll find 'em. Many of them are business people who want, and appreciate, a schedule so that they can plan accordingly. Also you should be aware, if you aren't already, that the vB staff does get requests and suggestions at other than the vb.com forums.

I know that, what do you think this is for: http://www.vbulletin.com/testimonial_form.php -- , but you or me, or anyone else for that matter will not know how many people use it, exception being the vB staff.

At the end of the day, I've said my opinion, and after some thought, I'm split about the decision. Lets just leave it as it is, for now.
