  • Which Vbulletin version to choose for a new site

    Hello,

    I need some advice on selecting the right version for my new website. There are three version of Vbulletin which are actively used. They are 3.x, 4.x and 5.x. For a new site I want to know which is the best and stable. I am going to use a few plugins in future. Those will be related to social networking, youtube channel, user account integration, commenting system, etc.

    And also what is forumrunner.

    So please suggest me which one will be the best here. Thanks in advance.

    IMO I would use v4.2.2 or v4.2.3. Should you choose later to update to vB5 you can. I would not go with vB5 at this time as there is very few mods for it.
    My Mods also available at OzzModz.com

      By seeing the mods you are looking at, I would try both 4x and 5 in a test environment. VB5 connect has the mods you are looking at built in and may suit your needs. Before taking the site live, determine the route you want to take. VB4 can be upgraded, but VB5 cannot be downgraded. The choice is yours.
