    This is a topic where everyone can report bugs, and comment about our new operating version of vBulletin, version 5.
    We have come a long since implementing the newer version but may still find issues or concerns
    as each new update continues to fix problems, and fine tune this new version.
    And like any new software, the developers may also appreciate our feedback for future improvements.

    One request of mine is for the return of our Post Templates.
    Love to have the ability to create and save templates again.
    And another beauty would be the ability to shoot new members a welcome template like we use to have..

      Thanks for the topic we needed this.

      Well about the the Post Templates i miss that option to and i am searching high and low to code this myself without success but i will not give up lol.
      I have the most of them saved and i can post them in the Staff forum if you like so you can copy/paste them for now until i fid a fix.

      The second request will be a hard cookie but i am learning how to code the CSS templates maybe some day i can fix that to.

      The Avatars i have fixed by size but still no solution for the animated ones...i noticed also if i make the avatars bigger everything gets blurred even the badges in the postbit,
      Still playing with the avatar dimensions to get the correct size in the postbit part.

      There is still a lot of things i want back like the animated online/offline member status in the postbit and the country flags and many more stuff lol....anyway i am testing those on my test server and i am getting close with some of them.

        Thanks for the feedback again George.. John will have to chime in on that one but for me I would like to stay where were at as it appears at some point the older versions would eventually loose out and stop being updated. Kind of like each Windows version has a time limit eventually.

        Yeah that's true vB4 will have one or 2 more updates and then it's finished with that version.
        And if vB doesn't support that version anymore then it will die because forum software needs to be updated because of all changes browsers make etc...

      I am testing the old vB 4 version on the new server with the latest vB4 update and the attachments problem still remains George.

        I just switched my Avatar for something more Halloween, and guess what? The animation is working..
        Not sure if you did something, or it was just the image I used this time..

        This image size was 130x121 which I have never used before.. Guess I could resize some others and do more testing..

        PS, Like the country flags that are flying again, cool move boss..

          I have changed/adjusted the code yesterday but it appears that larger images 200x200 still don't work atm but smaller does sometime and not all off them...just test some Jack and keep me informed.
          Btw glad you like the flags brother thanks.

            Nothing so far John.
            I tried resizing 2 others to other sizes smaller than 200x200 going all the way down to 130x130 and none worked. Only this one Halloween image that was already at the smaller size is showing the animation.. So far not making any sense???

            PS, we are both missing one of our badges. At least one badge is showing a broken icon image?

            I don't get it....on my test server the animated avatars work but not here?...need to dig much deeper to solve this.
            And which badges do you mean Jack?

            John, I believe I/we finally have all the old HIDE REPLY tags removed from all of our themes for both Win 7, and Win8..
            That's themes only now.. Still have a ton of other customizations that probably still have the old tags..

            And now I have a couple of new requests since all my navigating thru the forums..
            1) May we have a new sub forum setup just for Hell-X Win 7 themes? We have many of them but they are all in the section for other designers.
            2) And may we have a new sub forum setup just for Win8 themes by lamia?

            And..
            On yet another note. May we increase the height dimensions for .jpg and .png images up to around 3500 - 4000?
            Some of the designers have made their preview screens by adding 3 or 4 screenshots into one single 1920x4000 preview shot..

            Pees and Franks..

              Thank you very much for removing those tags Jack...i am glad they are gone lol.
              About your requests...i will look into it,i guess the sub forums will be no problem but increasing the images can be a problem...i need to test this first to see if it doesn't strain the server to much.

                Ya, I was thinking the image sizes could be an issue but if we have a size limit of 125mb for the compressed attachments, what difference would larger images make?

                The setup would be no problem but showing or opening so big size images on the forum would strain the server especially when 10 or more members open the image at the same time.

              Is this where you add a new sub forum?

                Yes...but you need to take a look at another subforum how it is setup!
                You can create a subforum based upon an existing subforum so it will have the same forum/member permissions...this way you only need to add the display order.
                With this option you can choose where the subforum will be displayed on the forum main page first,last or somewhere in between in that category.

                  Just thought of another question John. Where in the world do we see how many members we have? Used to see statistics on the home page.

                    If you scroll down to the bottom of the main page is a statistic block with posts,topics and members statistics.
