    That's NOT what I see in IE 8.0 in Win7.
    Or FF, which I use 99.9999% of the time.

    Let's put this to rest. The previous version of vBulletin was obsolete--by over a year. We will not be returning to it. There is no availability in vBulletin to "switch themes". Some elements of user generated pages can be customized--but on the overall site that is not the case. vBulletin is not phpBB.

    There is no theme offered by vBulletin that resembles the old v3.x one. There are no third party themes available either. The current theme is being customized slightly to meet the general needs--but the basics must remain standardized so that the overall site can easily accept regular security and functionality updates.

    So no, the old theme nor its lack of functionality will be returning. We are running the current version of vBulletin, and an industry standard for large boards. Time marches on.

    So the old one quit working??? Did it's lack of functionality stop working as well?

    What are all these new features that are apparently needed, would things cease to function without them?
    I don't see any... That work anyways...

    I fail to see what was wrong with things the way they were... It wasn't broken... sure is now though...

    Will this new software balance my checkbook, tune my car up for me, add wattage to my radio... what?

    Don't take me the wrong way here... I'm all for upgrades.... As long as what they are replacing is actually better.... I do like this place and the knowledge that this forum contains... But when there are changes made there are BOUND to be people that don't want them or like them...


    It sure would've been nice to have a CHOICE in the matter... I never had a single issue or problem with the old version, worked flawlessly... Everything I ever clicked on worked... and worked well... Easy to find things, easy to read... Just plain easier...

    It's about many things. As a supposed IT man you should know that.

    It's here, it's staying. Subject closed.
