    Default Forum was down & is back again

    Hi everybody,

    as you maybe have noticed the forum was down during the last 10 days.

    The reason is that I spent 200 USD for an upgrade of the forum software (upgrade from Vbulletin 4.2.2. to latest version 5) and found a lot of problems installing it.

    The support with the tickets at www.Vbulletin.com and also the answers in their forum from the administrators were not helpful and took to many time.

    So I decided know to downgrade again to the old version....

    I think it is better to use older, but more stable software then a Swiss-Cheese Software for 200 USD with a very lousy support, called VBULLETIN.

    I guess I will ask to pay them back my money and to find another software.

    In the past Vbulletin was great something changed there....I am not a software specialist, but in the past all problems were resolved very quickly with the support of Vbulletin...I am not really sure if they still even have something I would call "support".

    OK, guys: If you ever plan to setup a forum: Consider to use other software then VBULLETIN!

    BTW: I recovered the database from 20th of May 2015....

    Sorry for the downtime and a happy weekend from Barcelona
    Saludos

    I thought we may have lost the forum for a bit - the upgrade was totally unworkable and very un-user friendly. I am glad you have down graded and I hope they do the right thing and reimburse your money.

    Viva the old forum!d

    Well that sucks. I hope you get your money back. A new forum would have been a nice change though.

    Any chance you could put the "recent/latest posts" back into the left hand side bar?

    Cheers
