  • ahh I figured out the issue. New Topics under the filter in my blog was off. I don't even remember selecting that, so it would have to be the default view which I find it odd that it would be that way. I also find it odd that the setting would be there at all.

    • Honestly I'm getting used to it a bit and I see the potential for it to actually be solid once out of Beta. That being said with the amount of customization and size of my current site I just don't see the point in updating right now as I've finally gotten Vb4 they way I want it after 2 years. Could see myself upgrading my other license though for a new project once everything gets smoothed out in the next month or so.

          That looks fantastic!

          Is there a statistics option available for the bottom of the front page that shows users online etc as it is in VB4?

          • There are a couple of online user modules that can be used. Online Users and Top Active Online Users. There is a Today's Birthday's module. There isn't a specific statistics module at this time. I guess that is another JIRA I need to write this weekend.

            Here is the top active user's module:

            • What is confusing to me is that the Home tab is the what should be called Forums. The Home tab should present a home page.

                Probably will be when the CMS contenttypes and additional modules required for them are added back in. It is just a label though. Easy enough to change in a few clicks. Currently that is the root page of the software installation. This is usually refered to as Home but you can call it whatever you want. You can change the modules around to make it behave differently.

                  I know as an admin it's easy to change the tabs and their function. Don't you think it would make the demo easier to use if you changed Home to Forums?

                  • We have a new demo staged and ready to be installed over the next few days. Not sure if it will go up this weekend or if they are waiting for the beta 11 build. Either way, it will show off the forums and other features. I don't really see a problem with the tab name. The new demo makes it very clear where the forum list is located.

I still get random more http errors when I move around pages. It still loads, then shows, then hides, then shows different stuff. Blogs are still rather ugly.

                      Honestly, most of the differences I see is in the header, footer and some more content. If I'm missing some miraculous other improvements, please guide me on where to find them. As so far, I can barely get enough enthusiasm to browse vB5, let alone take the time to register.
                      To be honest I don't think there were changes made to any code, I figure I was simply over the shock of the all new feel going down, I found vB4 just as much of a shock to the system to be honest, I've been a user on vBulletin sites for a considerable time, vB3 was a shock to the system to me to be honest, I was so used to vB2 back then. It's only my own view but I can see myself being very happy with vB5, my members are already sending in contributions to help with paying for the upgrade, so that's a good sign straight off the bat. I feel my initial response was a little childish and fool hardy of me, I am not ashamed to admit that, now I have taken the time to take vB5 on board with a level head I find it very exciting and look forward to being able to use on my own site immensely.

                      • The next beta release will likely determine if I get the upgrade for VB5 or not so I can still get in on the early promo. If it makes things worse or doesn't start to change my mind I'll likely sit VB5 out.

                        However what is bugging me is that the whole thing almost seems amateurish and basic. If not rushed to market. Especially compared to other forum software. I really wonder how users (not admins or owners), but the people that visit the new VB 5 forum will react. Truth be told this is a bit jarring. Its not gonna be a smooth or even semi-smooth transition it seems. Some things lost. Some things gained. A whole new look, feel, and layout.

                        Is the potential there? Yes. But that still doesn't mean much.

                        While it may not seem as bloated in features, it sure seems bloated in coding, ajax, and other 'techie' things. It almost seems like VB wants to be Facebook while being VB or something. I dunno. The direction almost seems confusing or lost.

                        We'll see what happens. But right now, on first impression, it's not looking good.

                            Views are not present in vB5.

                              • What's the point of the nested comments? I understand, you can comment a post. But why does it makes any sense?
                                Given we have a thread with 100 posts on 10 pages, some members are writing nested comments. I've read all posts but I have to read the whole thread again and again because it could be there are new nested comments. In my eyes it's like the quote function, so we have now two ways to comment a post.
