A couple of questions:

1) In UBBClassic, users could see all forums on the main forum index, even if they didn't have permission to view/access them. We really miss that feature in UBBThreads 6. Is that available in version 7?

2) Have the stylesheets in version 7 all changed as radically as this UBB.Threads community forum has? To be honest, I don't like the new look and I'm pretty sure that my bosses won't either. I don't want to upgrade if it's going to radically change the basic look and feel of the forums.

3) How long does an upgrade typically take?

Thanks so much,
Tracy Friesen

I don't want to upgrade if it's going to radically change the basic look and feel of the forums. The Side boxes can be turned off via the Control Panel. You can stick with a strictly message board with the header and footer.

3) How long does an upgrade typically take? That depends on the number of members and posts that your forums have

Thanks so much,

I liked #1, a lot... Gave some users something to look forward to (for VIP forums, Paid Forums, etc).

Style has changed a lot, but thanks to the private beta group's sugguestions there is an easy to use editor in 7.

Upgrade varies, on my forum at no load it took 6 hours; when it was b0ged and laggy it took 2 days (though this was an extreme case for us, server issues). It all honestly varies.
