    I hesitated for two years and upgraded two months ago. There are some bugs but for my needs I feel 5 is very good. There is a lot of people talking down vB5 but I think trying it and evaluating it is the right way to go.

    The question to ask is:

    Why do you want to upgrade?

    If the answer is "because there are features in vB5 that I want, that aren't in vB4", then upgrde.
    If the answer is "because I like to be on the latest version", then don't.

    vB5 is significant change from how vB4 works, and upgrade decisions should not be taken lightly.

    As someone who has both vB4.2.3 and vB5.2.0 versions of the same site I can honestly say I can't answer this.

    There are things I like and dislike about each version. It really depends on your site.

    I'd suggest making a test site and upgrading that before you decide on your live site.

    That question is hard to answer, because it totally depends on your needs and expectations.

    not to dig this thread back up...but is the general consensus still that vb5 isn't a good thing to upgrade to?

    Same here. Much happier, significantly better software, they are very open about where the next version is going.

    Count me in for a big NO vote, unless the upgrade is to different software.

    www.thesaucyvegan.com
    Mark, you did not disclose the whole story.

    I don't know about thesaucyvegan but hdherd is a prime example why the OP should not upgrade as of yet. It is well documented in TAZ that hdherd was a total fiasco and only after heavy personal involvement by yourself that the site is now - to use your own wording - has "excellent results".

    My recommendation, same with others - as of currently; do not upgrade.

    My forum upgraded from 3.8 and we are now on 5.05 and testing on 5.1. Everything went well. I also am testing on a new server and so far so good. I have a small forum without any big modifications done to it. I can say we are happy with the way it works and look forward to the next update.

    No don't upgrade.
    We did.. and after a few days of missery we went back to vb4.

    Today we said goodbye to VB and did convert to IP-Board... our test convert went verry well..so after 9 years of vbulletin we decided to say goodbye to VB and welcome IPB.
    It is actualy sick to see that converting to IPB went much better as upgrade to VB5.

    No!! Dont upgrade.
    I have done it and it is it is horrible.
    Most of the hacks don't work.
    For me this new version is the reason I moved to IPB.
    So if anyone have intrest, he can buy my license
