  • Porting vB2 skins to vb3


    I have some paid skins I got during the whole vBulletin version 2 thing and now that I've upgraded to vB3, I want to port them over rather then having to buy new templates that I don't even like as much. Can someone point me to a tutorial or script that converts vb2 skins to vb3 skins? I'm using vBulleting 3 Gamma if you need to know such. Thanks in advance!

    Sorry, I accidently put this in the wrong forum. If you could, please move this to vBulleting 3 "How Do I...?" forum.

      There is no algorithm to convert vB2 skins to vB3 since the two style systems are so different. The conversion would need to be done "manually." You might try asking the person who made the skins if there are vB3 versions.

        I've already asked. I might as well do it myself. What exactly must I do?

            What you exactly must do is redo all your customizations manually in the new templates.

            Every template has changed in vBulletin 3 Gamma and they are not backwards compatible with vBulletin 2.X. You will have to review each HTML change made in your vBulletin 2.X style and manually apply it to the new templates.

              The problem is that i'm not familiar with the vbulletin templates, and this is a skin of ravio. Probally i will remain with vbulleti 2.X and i will upgrade in future, consider that this will be the forum of my biz and i want a cool template.

                Yeah, I'm just going to stay with vbulletin 2 until 3 is stable and has more hacks and templates for it. I look forward to the stable release of 3! Nice work guys!
