    Oops... I forgot to mention the new Silver Control Panel style...

    To access it, click the [Options] button when you go to log into the Admin Control Panel and select 'vBulletin 3 Silver' from the list of available control panel styles.

    vBulletin 3.0.0 Beta 4

    Two weeks after the release of vBulletin 3 Beta 3, we can now present Beta 4 for download.

    A whole host of improvements and tweaks have been made in response to customer feedback, along side all the usual bug fixes.

    Some of the new features include:
    • Ability for administrators to choose their own style for the control panels, overriding the default style choice made in the options editor
    • Improved style editor including color preview swatches (which support background images) and a fully functional popup color picker system
    • Improved admin control panel navigation frame, allowing groups of links to be expanded and collapsed, along with the ability to save your expanded groups preferences so that you can have 'favorite' groups open whenever you load up the control panel
    • Option to disable control panel session timeout
    • Option to add manual entries to the paid subscriptions system, as well as options to edit existing entries
    • Permissions editor colors now held in CSS for constant colors between different interfaces
    • Javascript phrase parsing rewritten for compatability with Macintosh browsers
    • URL length of links on the user-side of vBulletin shortened and optimized for better spidering by search engines

    New to Beta 4, when running install and upgrade scripts, you will now be asked to enter your customer number to access the scripts, rather than log in as an administrator. Your customer number is that which you use to log in to the vBulletin Members' Area. Upgrade/Install scripts are watermarked with your customer number when you download the zip file, so your board will not attempt to contact a remote server to verify your customer number.

    Upgrade Instructions

    To upgrade your board, upload all files from the 'upload' folder in the zip file with the exception of install/install.php, then point your browser at install/upgrade.php. You should be automatically redirected to the appropriate upgrade script (upgrade1.php for people upgrading from vBulletin 2, and upgrade2.php for people upgrading from vBulletin 3 Beta 3).

    Installation Instructions

    To install vBulletin 3.0.0 Beta 4, follow the instructions in the readme.html file in the zip file from the members' area.
