  • Upgrading versus own template modifications

    Hi vBulletin users,

    I am pretty new here and do not know too much about vBulletin yet. My question is: when I have modified the look of vBulletin by creating my own theme, can I later upgrade to another version of vBulletin without having to do all the work again?

    I know that this was a huge problem with Invision Board a few years ago. I had re-designed the board completely and then a security issue came up and I had to upgrade to another version, which was completely not compatible with the older skin system.

    Is this the same with vBulletin?

    And does anyone know when a stable 3.5 version of vBulletin will be released?

    Thanks for your help.

    Generally you won't have to redo your templates.
    There is always a post in the announcements about new versions that state which templates changed. If one of these require a revert, you'll most likely have to reapply the changes to that template, as you could be missing out on bugfixes otherwise.
    Best Regards

    Please don't contact me per PM.

      Ah, okay, thank you.
      That's very positive.
