Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.8.0

We have uploaded new versions of our styles for vBulletin 3.8.0.

Customers can find the new files in the customers area. All vBulletin users are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible.

Bugs/Issues

We encourage all our skin users to submit bug reports via our bug tracker. If you have further problems, not relating to bugs etc you can open a support thread for assistance.

Manual Changes

Due to the amount of template changes required (over 300 in total for all our skins) it wasn't viable for us to document the changes between version.


If you would like us to assist in upgrading your forum wether you are a vBulletin Skin Zone customer or not please contact us for further details.

Re: Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.8.0

MaestroX - I have made 100s of small modifications to Red Carbon.

While I totally understand your viewpoint in not documenting the changes, is there an easy way to compare two versions of a theme that you are aware? I made changes as I went along, and know I'll miss some..

Re: Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.8.0

Hey stubbedtoe,

There is a way to compare the current version of your templates with the new 3.8 version, when the "out of date templates" messages comes on your admincp, click it to get the list of out of date templates. The use the "View History" function to compare.

Its best to use the "View side by side" function to see changes.

Hope that helps

Re: Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.8.0

Thanks for the new release! Btw MaestroX - this issue still wasn't fixed -

It was still apparent in the last release aswell I think but I had to use the fix you told me about-

Thanks for reporting this. I've fixed it for future versions and the manual fix is simple. In the "register_rules" template find:

Quote:
class="page"
and remove.
The problem is here again in the 3.8 skin (fresh vb installation etc.) - just letting you know.
