The upgrade has enabled collapsing the non-English forums on the home page (as expected).

One thing I did notice: The forums favicon is now the VBulletin logo instead of the usual Geeko
Seems to be fixed now
Oops I think my browser had the Geeko logo cached so I renamed my .mozilla directory and got the VBulletin favicon again
I have not problems. I like it!!!
You must have caught it before I re-uploaded the new favicon:
If you still see the vBulletin favicon, clear your browser cookes and try again.
Yep I cleared my cookies and it has gone back to the Gecko again
I keep getting a page not found if I am browsing a thread and then login.
Looks like the login re-direct can’t find the referring URL.
That problem existed before the upgrade. See the Home forum page’s right-hand column under “Most Viewed” threads.
I’ve never experienced it before today.
I guessed as much. Just wanted you to be aware of the history, for info if needed.
Dunno how I missed that thread !!!
If it’d been a brick on a shelf I’d a been konked:-)
vB is crapware, always has been and no matter how much you hack it still is!
Just noticed something, if you enter a wrong login and password it will redirect you again to login page but won’t give any error/ notification of authentication failed or incorrect login & password.
Yes I have noticed that too.
Well, it’s not too difficult to notice. When the redirect returns one to a login page with blank input fields for login name and password, that must be a BIG clue that either the login name or password were entered incorrectly or are invalid, and require you to try again.
