It's perfectly workable software from a human user standpoint.
    I reported the w3c validation bug here.
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/proje...?issueid=34292

    I hope they fixed it. Some of my customers are very strict on this w3c validation.

    Final product without a valid xhtml transtional is not good. phpbb3 has strict xhtml, you can see spiders came in like hell. So even we vbulletin have loose xhtml but we dont valid.

        I searched for "server optimization" - it took 28 seconds. That's the real user experience.

        The new skin is a div soup instead of a table soup. What gives? And it doesn't follow any of the standards or widely followed guidelines, like real buttons for forms, links for links, and so on. There's no typography. You have no idea what's clickable and what not. Is the username a link? You actually need to click on it to find out.

        I don't see any new features. It seriously looks like vB 3 with a new skin. SEO? Anyone who cares (not me anyway) will have used vBSEO. Asset Manager? vB isn't a social network or a file upload software.

        And I bet the PHP code is still the mess it was before.

        I'm very curious what gets released today. It took two years to get here?

          4.0 is the first step on the reworking of the entire vB codebase. Yes, a CMS has been added and this is being done after years of people screaming for it.

            I think the only people can give judge about vb4 is developers , because they know what are the major bugs well ? so I believe that if they are going to release vb4 gold today it will work very well .

              But what if they are under orders from IB? They are not going to risk their jobs by telling t=us they are being forced to release a product that they think is not ready.

                    I have been running the beta and release candidate versions, with my first time using vBulletin (ever, but with multiple free forum experience), and have come up with this: http://www.npac.ca/2010

                    I think it is ready, as it serves my purposes and anything I see that needs changing, it's usually a layout issue or something easily changed with easy to locate code.

                    It is a forum-based CMS that acts as a platform for the inevitable flood of mods. It already revolutionized the way an organization operates before it was even released.

                      edit: Damn it! Somehow it erased my answer to you, so I repeat it:

                      Something in your website is broken, I don't know if it's your custom design or a bug in the CMS itself - when I go to this page for instance:

                      http://npac.ca/2010/content.php/118-...o-Fashion-Week

                      And I click on "2 comments", it only sends me to the bottom of the page and doesn't show any comments. If you want I can take a screenshot.

                      I noticed the url changed to http://npac.ca/2010/content.php/118-...-Week#comments , but it doesn't show any. This is under Opera browser.

                      Also, is there supposed to be more than one picture? I only see the one.

                      Well, this is worrying... But I guess it doesn't matter, today's the day, I can't wait to see the list of bugs, if enough have been fixed (specially my super annoying Opera bug that I've reported since RC1 ) I'll go ahead and install it =)

                        very nice design, however you are producing a database error.

                        • Thanks for the feedback on bugs, keep in mind the software used is still RC4, so I expect some of the bugs to be fixed upon Gold release. I am hoping the database error when clicking the What's New? tab as a Guest will be solved with the final version.

                          There were some permissions variables I have now tweaked, allowing guests greater access to view the site. Still trying to find out why Guests can't view comments, they appear for members. Yes, there is only one picture even though it says is a gallery - it's actually just placeholder content.

                          Essentially the pre-release software is what you see and are using here. It's just a matter of making it into your own. All you need is Firebug and Search in Templates.

                          • imo, no!
                            Before IB bought jelsoft, devs didnt really give a release date on gold version and instead they are jusst releasing when they think its stable. What i think it was bad move by IB was that they gave a release date for the gold versionb because theres no gurantee that script will be bugfree or less buggy since new bugs surface everyday. If we see for today, a bug report might surfacce and is a huge one that requires alteration on several scripts which can take hours or days. So giving a release date and got tons of bug report at once will just stress the programmers to keep it in schedule and could do a sloppy work? and if you delay the release date you could piss some customers off like you see with sony ericsson. You could lose some credibility there

                            So what if devs fixed xxx bugs does it really justify to skip over thje next phase(rc2 -->rc4) based on numbers of bugs youve fixed. Maybe you should focus on making the script generate less bugs before going to the next phase?

                            • I guess it wasn't ready n_n

                              I've ran across like 10 bad bugs in just a few hours of installation, they're mostly in the CMS and not deal-breakers, but it's very unpolished. Still, it's interesting to play with. =)

                              If you have time please support this one because it's the one that annoys me the most, and it's in the forum and I've reported it for ages: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/proje...?issueid=33421

                              • Great i've just put in for a professional installation of vb4 gold and there's bugs!!

                                How are these bugs fixed? Are they fixible from vb's end? Or do we as site owners need to fix them ourselves by installing patches?
