    Good points/questions. I'd love to hear stroppy's (and other members) opinions pro and con.

    Unfortunately it looks like there are quite a few documented vulnerabilities in this version of vBulletin, attachment uploads included.

    https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerabi...Vbulletin.html

    I know this is bad news, RF, but you may really want to consider upgrading to the latest version of vBulletin.

    There is already a plan in place to upgrade the site. Unfortunately its not a simple 'flick the switch' and requires careful planning and documentation of the steps to ensure no element of the site is lost or broken. I have already put considerable time and effort into this task and its still nowhere near the level I need it to be before I can recommend it to be done to Jerome.

    I would definitely hold off on this till the upgrade is complete.

    Hopefully I didn’t come across the wrong way. I know how much planning and precision is required for a system upgrade, especially for a site with this much content and traffic. When I saw the list of exploits for this version, I thought it would be best to at least mention it.

    As long as the upgrade doesn't expose all of the sheep on sheep porn I have in the gallery I'm ok with it.

    FYI: something’s up with the site on mobile Safari.

    I’d post a screenshot but it seems Tapatalk is also acting up today. Can’t scroll past a certain point when writing a post nor can I upload images.

    At this time we are not running vBulletin software that is http(S) .
    The site is "secure" so you have to accept the warning and come to the site.


    FYI, many of the major companies that experienced security breaches have a HTTPS URL . Hackers gained confidential info in other ways.

    I have been tweaking the GrayFolio - Black Style. Im trying to fix some of the long standing issues on this particular skin. No other skin should be affected.

    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Actually Black Stealth can go for all I care - It's GRAYFOLIO BLACK that I'm working on

    In all honesty there are really only 2 themes that are used by 99% of the members. Take 5 and GrayFolio Black. Take 5 is by far and away the most robust theme as it scales well across all devices (including mobile) and has had the most attention paid to it. GrayFolio Black is preferred by everyone else as it is considerably less garish 'bright' but it has some issues, some of which I have been attempting to fix (as it's my theme of choice). Going forward, I think I will change the plan and try to create an alternative theme to Take 5 but BASED on it. This should (in theory) mean that RF only needs to make a change in T5 for things like announcements or Donation widgets and it will automatically appear in the other theme. A positive way forward for all.

    To this end I will create a new theme and try a few things out. If you notice it, I would advise not using it as it will most likely be broken for a lot of the time. At least this way I can experiment and not affect others. If I can get this right, we should be able to reduce the options to just these 2 themes and still leave everyone happy.
