    Hello dear MT'ers,

    I have to make a decision regarding the upload/image problems we encounter the last 2 months!

    I need feedback from all of you and my questions is:

    Should MT upgrade to vBulletin 5 or should we switch to another forum software,like Xenforo?

    The problem with this vB 4 version we use now is the lack on support and regular updates/fixes
    and the updates and support for this version will stop maybe next year!

    Anyway if we decide to switch we will lose a lot of money because the paid/pro addons and forum skins are not compatible with vB 5 or Xenforo!

    In fact we will have to purchase/buy everything new again or update the paid addons!
    The forum skins we will lose because the designer of those skins is like the vB guys he never updates his skins lol!

    So help me out here guys and gals i have pulled my hair out and tried everyday to find a solution/fix with no results so far!

    I will add a poll so you all can vote but please leave some feedback to!
    Thanks!

    Yes i am also impressed especially for that price lol!

    Well John. I just went surfing and guess what I just came across?
    When you get time, you gotta check out these skins for VB5..
    The link is here -> http://www.sultantheme.com/vb5connec.../social-groups
    And it is a test forum setup just to view skins. As normal, you can go down to the bottom left and see/select all the skins. Then load them to view. And of course they are all for sale..
    Let me know your thoughts please. I gotta do something about this white skin before I go nucking futs, lol...

    To late now i have installed vB 5 but your feedback is welcome buddy thanks!
