  • vBulletin 3 Classic Style

    READ FIRST!: This style was not developed, nor made for vBulletin 3.5.x and should not be used in said enviroment.

    vBulletin 3 Classic:
    As of late I have noticed a demand for the same modifications, mostly a more vB2 styled look to the vBulletin 3. What I have done is taken the original vBulletin 2 style that was provided for vBulletin 3, by the Devs and have modified it to look and act a lot more like vBulletin 2.

    To get the full effect you must enable legacy postbit, or copy the postbit_legacy template into the postbit template

    Most noticeable Differences:
    Old Styled Forumhome
    -Last post on the far right
    -Tables are not separated at all

    Header / Navbar
    -Header contains the old vB2 buttons for links instead of the navbar, however they still use JS.
    -Old logo with background
    -Stripped down navbar

    -Thread Starter has its own column again
    -Last post is again on the far right

    -Different things moved around into their old positions
    -Ability to add more buttons below the post (like vB2)
    -All posts are connected instead of having a space between them

    -Newthread button returns (top and bottom)

    Development - If there is enough response
    -Old vB2 profile
