  • Question Upgrade from 3.5 to 3.6.4

    Hi, I'm currently have 3.5X but planning to upgrade to 3.6X. Is there going to be any problem if I use 3rd party skin template? How about many plugin and module I have intalled is that going to be effect?

    Upgrading will always overwrite any hacks or changes you made to the vB files. However upgrading will not overwrite any add-ons through Plugins, although it is possible that those plugins may need to be upgraded for the new version.

    Also upgrading will not overwrite custom templates. Nonetheless you should seriously consider reverting any updated templates to get the full advantage of all bug fixes and improvements. You can redo your changes after reverting.

          I'm running 3.5.4 right now..my only "hack" is the hide hack from Vision Scripts which has the plug in...and then I installed a vBulletin Style (which can also be called template? that confuses me)..i forget from which template site...I'm wanting to upgrade to 3.6.4 now but afraid I'll mess something up.

          I guess its just a matter of redoing all the code mods for the custom style and hide hack?

          Just didn't know what YOU mean by saying "Nonetheless you should seriously consider reverting any updated templates to get the full advantage of all bug fixes and improvements."
