    Default A step back to VB4

    Hi Guys,

    As you would've already noticed, we've moved back to the older version of xBhp, i.e., vbulletin4. We had moved to the VB5 with lots of hopes and enthusiasm. Apparently, the happiness was short-lived as we ran into many issues, which included bugs as well as lack of features, and that included some very critical issues like unavailability of some of the older very important threads.

    We could work on some of these issues, but some required intervention at the VB5 coding level which is something we didn't' want to go into. But those glitches hampered the functionality of the forum to a great extent. So, with a heavy heart, we've shifted back to the older working theme until we resolve the bugs/errors to a satisfactory level and sometimes you have to take a step back to jump over a big obstacle.

    Now, you'll notice that some of your threads/posts that were created while we were on Vb5 are missing. That data is there with us and we'll try to restore that as soon as possible. The vb5 forum is accessible only to the admins/mods right now.


    Sincere apologies for all the inconvenience that you had to go through!

    Mods are working on those. And even we don't get those post nevermind. We need a working set of features and stability. Good decision mods to roll back.

    I came here only for this

    As much as I can say I'm relieved.. I also think it may not be possible to restore back posts from vb5 to vb4. Faced similar issues between vb3 and vb4 migration on another forum and had to loose all the new posts :/

    Yeah! this one has more functionality but v5 looked better, too bad we can't have best of both worlds.

    Thanks so much for this! I was going insane trying to work with that temperamental vb5.

    I guess most people were having serious issues and the activity on the forum had started decreasing.
    Goes to show "If it aint broke, dont fix it!!"

    Please try to get the posts from the two weeks back.

    Sure, a step forward to improvement and growth is difficult, but what shows even more might and strength is a step back after realizing what is truely important. I think VB4 or VB5 , its secondary. But what truely matters is the fellowship and passion the members have for XBHP.

    I just want to say 'its Okay' to the moderators. Dont get heavy hearted and try again #LOVE XBHP

    P.s. I love This set up more than the VB5, nothing has to change :P its perfect.

    Ohh. Thank god. I thought, I was the only one, who liked the old one better. Though the new version looks much better, I feel, this version is more practical.
