    It is available. However we can't officially recommend a Beta for a live site. We can't stop you either.

    Im starting a new website this week.
    I expect it will grow to a decent number in a matter of a few months. 200 or so active users at most all times.

    I may as well learn the vb5 now? It is available to use on a new live website that plans to build its way up?

    Being a first time person with VB I've found it rather difficult - even the purchasing process was a pain.

    However, two days in I'm finally starting to understand it. I program for a game - the forums which I'm creating will hopefully be used. The game I work for is develop games for mobile devices- and the mobile version of VB5 is amazing.

    I think it's good- a few errors here and there, but nothing enough for me to install VB4.

    Agreed... For us, the software isn't even "evaluatable" without infractions and paid subscriptions, as I suspect will be the case for the majority of anything medium sized or larger.

    Not even sure how they are going to manage this site when it upgrades and they lose the infraction system.

    There aren't many sites that'll convert, at least until an infraction system is in place.

    Most won't be able to do that either, since clone/test sites have to be non-public under the license agreement.

    The only "big boards" I've seen on vb5 are clones just to test the upgrade and performance.
    I've yet to see a big board live with vb5 and I wouldn't suggest it for some time still.

    It's going to be a while before any site of substance is comfortable with making the transition to vBulletin 5, largely because all of the modifications and template edits done in vB4 either won't work or won't be available for some time. People tend to become attached to their bells and whistles.

    I would always say to any big site......take upgrades slowly. Don't feel pushed to rush in.

    If You Were Building your First Site Right Now, Would You Use vB4 or vB5?
    by Rivka
    Ok I am just now learning and building a site. I have been reading and learning my install of vb4 for the last 2 months, i have a lot of learning to go. I currently do not know when My site will go live,...
    vb4 - Stick with what's already released & works
    66.67%
    26
    Both - set them up side by side, if the vB5 is gold by the time you want to go life, great, otherwise fall back to vB4
    10.26%
    4
    vB5 - Might as well put the time and effort into setting it all up once
    23.08%

    How do I know when it's smart to DL vB5?

    So I noticed the new version is out. I just got new forum license set up with a vB4 about a month ago. Since I have added mods to it and just kind of gotten all set up the way I want it for the most part...

    Yeah, this is just such a huge departure from the very nice publishing suite that we have. It would probably be easier to swallow if it weren't such a drastic departure - all at once. You have completely...

    vb5 Feedback
    by tonmo
    I'm a vb forum owner since 2002. vb3 was great, but lacked a CMS and so I relied on vbadvanced for years, plus some good ol' hand-coding. Eventually that got old so was excited about vb4. vb4 was rough...
