  • [Forum] How to convert mods from vB3 to vB4

    Couldn't find anything on this so I thought I would ask. How big a deal is it to take a vB3 mod and update it to a vB4 mod? I'm looking for a guide etc so I can upgrade some mods that are still made for vB3.

    Any help would be great.

    Depending on the modification, easy to fairly significant.

    Anything that uses custom templates would have to be recoded to use the new system, for starters.

    Best place to ask this would be at
    My Live vB5 Site -
    vBulletin Hosting | vBulletin Services - Need hosting for your vB? Need it installed? Something else? Let me take that hassle off your hands.

      And actually, take a look at the articles tab > vB4 Articles first over on because I think there may be some articles in there to help you out.

      Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
