    That's the error. Apparently I didn't have the usercss table. So I already had a test board with 4.0 on it so I could have a skin ready when I I just copied over the table and I still get this error. What is wrong???

    According to your error, your database is a 3.8.2 database, yet you say you are running on 4.0? You need to run the upgrade.php script in order to upgrade your database to run with the vB4 files.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      You misread. I'm running a test conversion. I already had another test board running 4.0 so I could have my designer/coder create a new skin before I actually do the upgrade on my live site. So with this error you see, I'm trying to do a test conversion on a copy of my live sites db that was running 3.8.2. I've updated the live site to 3.8.4pl2 to see if it created the usercss, but it didn't.

      I hope that makes more sense for you.

        Try reuploading the vB4 files again and rerun that step - the column should be added earlier in the process so sounds like something hasn't gone right before then...
