IT'S HERE! New Vbulletin finally is out! CP upgrade process starting!

Ok so VB5 is FINALLY here and at a point that I can start the laborious upgrade process. I am copying the DB over right now so we'll have something to play with. Ok, so here is how this should play out...

#1 copy db(as of today, right now, don't worry this is just for testing) and install the base VB5 code
#2 setup entirely new templates and try to make it look somewhat like the current site (this part is going to be a bitch and take forever).. drink lots of beer
#3 let everybody go play with the test site and give feedback
#4 ignore feedback and give excuses why none of your cool ideas can be done... drink more beer
#5 shut down the board overnight one night and make the real switch.

Just to be clear, none of this should impact the board except for an occasional slowdown or hiccup while I am doing DB intense stuff.. like right now with the massive DB copy.

As DaFace stated below "YIKES!" This hasn't been easy, as a matter of fact I am at a point where I am seriously looking at different platforms entirely. VB5 is not even CLOSE to being ready for prime time. They just released an update yesterday so I'll have to take a look. The problem isn't the massive changes it's that nothing is documented worth a damn and the developer community has dried up almost completely as a resource. Creating a stock version of VB5 with some ChiefsPlanet theme over the top isn't a big deal.. but getting it to act anything CLOSE to what we have now is next to impossible with the version I have.

I'll keep you guys posted once I have had time to dive into the latest update and see if they bothered to fix the documentation.

Haven't worked on it much lately because the version I had was crap but I'm going to try the newest one that came out last week and see if it is worth it.

Well, if that was truly the case, would love to know what I could have possibly done to get on that list.

Yeah, I don't think its that either. I can get to each page fairly quick but the update to place me on the most recent post is taking over 2 minutes sometimes. I have to manually go find the new posts right now as it is quicker.

What benefits do you hope to achieve with this new software?

I mean besides the obvious ones with aids trees, antifreeze and reputation.
