    Been rewriting entire templates, too. Keeping the PHP files intact, though, as always.

    This is why I prefer vBulletin version 2.0.x to 3.0.x / 3.5.x

    So I'm not a huge fan a AJAX either...
    *cough*
    Disable ajax
    Disable all the "bells and whistles".

    Filburt did it, and he gained all the new backend functionaility

    As filburt1 said, some people don't like it because it can be unpredictable in some browsers.

    I don't like it because it relies entirely on Javascript, which not everybody has enabled (by choice, quite often) and has wildly different implementations for each browser. Also, for those used to using the web, they expect that interacting with a component on a web page navigates to a new page and could be confused when seemingly nothing changes.

    In principal, it's good, but with the reality of browsing and web users, I don't like it.

    Apparently because it makes bookmarks and the Back button useless... but I'm almost certain this can be fixed with some form of url manipulation....

    MGM out

    Perhaps they don't like how it creates less work.
