    Try it now...there were some weird issues I saw in 4.2.2, 4.2.3 has seemingly resolved a few of the issues that I noticed over time.

    I pulled the trigger and purchased VBulletin connect 5. It's been 6 years since we did an upgrade, so I think it's right time we did so.

    What I hope to achieve is to get a lot of data I know we have, and make it usable again;
    -Shadow Shacks Articles
    -User written beginner bikes articles
    -Whizbangs spinning wheels articles
    -Gear articles

    All this stuff has been written, but vb4 was kind of convoluted. In the version 3 of vbulletin, I had vBCMS which was a content manager that let me use articles in our database in a manner that made sense. So the data is there! I just want to make it usable again.

    Sounds good!

    And testing... Looks fixed.

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

    An upgrade is a big thing, glad to help.

    Re the location of the TINY box, which is at the very, very bottom of the page.... what if you put it above the quick reply box, or on the home forum page, just above "what's going on". Either place, it would be seen more.

    Also, my form colors are blueish/gray. Your 'donate' image is similar, and it blends in, not noticed. Perhaps recolor it to get some ZING in it?

    Good luck, thanks for the upgrade.

    Well...I may have screwed up. I bought VB connect 5...and had a support case open because the test DB that I took was failing to upgrade properly. Well, now, vbulletin.com was hacked...and who knows how long they will be out of commission. Crap.

    Oooookay. Just how is that your fault?

    1. The database upgrade not working is their problem.

    2. THEY were hacked. Also their problem.

    All these things do for the forum is delay the upgrade not prevent it.

    Best laid plans and all....

    "Majorly hacked" is a relative thing. I did support for phpBB for several years, and the biggest problem was people putting extensions in that didn't take into account proper checks for SQL injections. Let the wrong thing through, and your entire database could be dumped to an attacker, after which they have plenty of time to do dictionary attacks against your passwords.

    It's also possible through simple SQL commands to make a site appear to be totally hacked, without doing much real damage, since these sites are all driven by their database.
