    No, but you could not do that while going from one stable version of vB2 to another either. The whole reason versions are updated is because they changed the code, so you need to upload new files.

    You can always re-apply the hacks, but since it is beta, there may be a bug that causes the code to change greatly, making the hack not work with the new version.

    Yes I have used Beyond Compare, but think about it you are still re-applying hacks to the new files before uploading.

    So whatever way you look at it you are still re-applying the hacks.

    The same happens with vB2.

    Actually, it's vB. The abbreviation must be bolded, and the "B" must always be a larger font size than the "v." The "v" must be coloured purple, and the "B" has to be yellow. Any other combination of colours probably represents a different definition. Also, you have to type the "v" with your pinky to denote that it does not stand for anything in particular, and the "B" must be struck with your middle finger to emphasize the aggressiveness of this particular bulletin board. Finally, always shout the abbreviation at the top of your lungs as you are typing it. Following these guidelines will not only show how much you respect the vBulletin software, but it will also fill all those around you with extasy and joy!
    LOL!!! That's great!!!

    I love vB!

    My opinion too. Hes obviously starting out, so there is no benifit in learning vB2 when he is just going to switch to vB3 in a matter of time. I consider vB3 stable enough for production environment...

    Just a little pointer, it's vB, not VB.

    vB=vBulletin, VB= Visual Basic.

    Thanks guys. The general consensus is stick to VB2 and then upgrade when RC comes out. Sounds good to me.

    Thanks again
