Forum Social Groups and Email Subscriptions

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

It's been bugging me for some time that you cannot subscribe to a social group and receive email messages when new topics are posted. This is particularly bad for the invite-only social groups that have few, but important posts.

It has come to my attention that this feature existed in vBulletin 3.8.0 but was broken. It was removed in vBulletin 3.8.1 (which we have now) and readded (and fixed) in vBulletin 3.8.2.

Can we get a vBulletin upgrade to a later release? I think 3.8.5 is the latest 3.8 version, released in March. vBulletin 4.0.3 is also out, but may have breaking changes with OCR's backend.

There's already a plan in place to upgrade to 4.0.3. :)

I guess I should have asked if you guys had any timeframe in mind.

It also concerns me that there was at least one major security fix to VBulletin that I emailed DJP directly about since I started this board, and the board seems to still be running the old version.

Must be a really long term plan, since that post was 17 months ago and we're still on 3.8.1.
