  • Version Changes & Plugins / Mods

    I am planning to buy myself a vBulletion which is currently (stable) the 3.7.x if I am correct. I checked a little bit around Mods etc. and do I understand that right if I do now install a couple of them, latest with the 3.8 that all is for nothing and I have to reinstall them again ? In case the mods do actually work with the new Version.

    Its already a pain .... to do version changes & mods on other Forums, but i donĀ“t usually have to make all new. How is that here with vB ?

    If i'm reading this correctly, you're concerned with doing updates for mods and having to re-install them with each new version?

    Plugin based mods usually won't be affected by an upgrade, but if they are, the author of the mod 90% of the time releases an updated version for the new version of vBulletin.

    The only mods you'd always have to do over are those with heavy template or file edits.

      but remember this, installing a plugin or hook in vbulletin is always a piece of cake. any n00b can do them, so you need not worry. this is my biggest relief after switching to vb, I do not think I ever had to touch one php file for editing anything in the forum unlike what I had to do everytime I installed a modification in IPB. so upgrading your hooks or plugins if they dont work on your next upgrade is not a headache at all, it takes you less than a minute to complete most of the mod installations...
