  • Last call for 1.1.2 beta...and update on the free version

    I have uploaded a fresh version tonight that includes all the know bug fixes. Existing 1.1.2 users should just upload the files on top. Previous versions should follow the instructions in the members area.

    You should also check that you have the latest versions of the following templates if you upgraded to 1.1.2 previously:

    loggedinusers activateemail activateemailsubject error_registeremail getinfo newthread

    Most of these are minor and not essential. activateemail is probably the most important change.

    This message is basically a last call for any problems with 1.1.2 . It has been on beta for a week now, so I would like to declare it fit and stable tomorrow evening.

    Lastly, I am happy to announce that the free version will be available very soon. The aim of this script is to check that your server can run vBulletin before buying. I am hoping that it will be available in beta tomorrow evening, UK time.

    Thanks!

    one thing...

    it says on my boards "HTML code is OFF. Smilies are ON. vB code is ON. [IMG] code is OFF." even if I selected all as on.


    See thread http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...p?threadid=800

    I just uploaded the newest zip, and still see it

        About free edition...

        I think it would be better if you could make free edition work for only, say, 15 days but have all features. That way a user can
        a) check if the full version can run on his server
        b) explore the features
        c) get to know full version's coding.
        You can probably put some code that would check for how long the script was used already....

        Just a suggestion

          since it's not compiled code, there is no way to put an effective expiry on it. anyone worth their salt could easily fond and remove and expiry script from open source software like this.

            Given that it uses mysql, the software could be forced to grab parts of the templates or other stuff from vBulletin's servers. Lots of fun ways to implement security when you're not based around a flat file implementation.

                    I hope that John is putting his existing customers who have trouble before with their setups ahead of this freebie which isn't directly going to earn him any money. Some of us seem to have some real problems, and no fix in sight Reading these forums at least 2 or 3 times a day, it occurs to me that support is not what it should be at present, and I feel it important that as much energy as possible is directed to this area of concern.

                      Yes it appears having one person (John) running support is not working out to well and it is going to turn off many customers if it is not resolved rather quickly.

                        The freebie is on hold while I continue trying to sort out issues with 1.1.2. I will let you know when it is ready.

                        Craig - I'm trying to figure out what is happening at the moment.

                          Well, i'm pretty sure it's possible to put expiration check on vB...

                            I'd love to be able to try out the demo version on my laptop, hope one is available soon... or could I test out the beta (I know that's normally just for customers.. but I thought I would ask). I agree with Ilya's suggestion about a timeout full-featured demo, since I am currently using UBB but would like to do a side-by-side comparison of speed and features before I decide to jump to using different fourm software.

                            Thanks,
                            -Chris
