  • Is it possible for 3.8.3 chinese version to update to 5.0 with moblie suite?


    Now I have the vbulletin3.8.3 in chinese. I would like to ask if I buy the vbulletin 5 connect with mobile suite, is the update version is enough?
    Or it's better to buy a new licience and transfer all content from 3.8.3 to avoid some characters compabilities' problems?

    I look foward to your reply.

    It is possible to do so. However be aware that you will not be able to search. The searching in the Chinese release was an addition added to that version specifically. It was never moved to the main code by the developers at that time. vBulletin 5 doesn't have comparable code at this time but it is planned for the future. I don't have a date though.

    I also don't see a Chinese Language Pack for Mobile.

This may change if customer demand for additional language packs increases. At this time, you would have to translate the system into Chinese or wait for a community contribution to support the language.
