    An optimist side of the v5, the moderation is super easy, especially editing and such common sense stuff...

        Xenforo moderation of spam is easier in the long run. Taptalk is a big issue, so I'll likely do the new Xenforo.

          yay as you know tom I have lots of plans, ideas and can now put them into action.

          My main reason for xenforo is bugs and compatability with third party stuff such as Tapatalk.

              How about a favicon ? Simple capital B. Could be red on white or white on blue, etc.

                Thanks webskipper.

                Already sorted one (not active) but will change it to match the new logo when we decide on the final logo.

                reminder for the graphic designers, do you have a logo idea?

                  The email goes to the Recipient via the Host. Therefore, apps like Spam Assassin found on the Host site can be turned up or require the Sender to be logged in.

                  Is spam control any better if Bulletin hosts the site and auto updates it? Our Club found it was cheaper with everyone's busy schedule to let vBulletin host and maintain it.

                    we use services such as Akismet and a few others, but they only reconise 90% of spam and or know spammers. New spammers that have not been reported still cause problems.

                    Its very handy if vbulletin hosts a site as you mentioned however it limits everything. Basically a site owner can only change what bulletin allows, No ftp etc.

                    For example a fully customised plant database is not possible along with any 3rd party plugins, it allows a site to run default, even themes are limited.

                    its a shame vb5 has so many bugs! Bring on xenforo

                      Have any updates been implemented? Consolidating the forums would make navigation so much easier and easier on the eyes.

                          Hi Im new & wondering if the search function could be expanded to search entire site or forum index's instead of how it appears now to be limited to the thread which you are viewing?
                          Thnx
                          plz ignore/delete...due to handicap of visual field(65% of normal)

                            When are you going to be switching to XenForo? Here is a theme I found that looks like vb5 https://xenforo.com/community/resour...exit-com.1461/
