I know they updated VBulletin yesterday, but is anyone else having trouble with the Quick Reply box at the bottom?

Whenever I try to use it it says... "Please click on the Quick Reply icons in the posts above to activate Quick Reply"

Where is this at? :lol:

Uh, just out of curiosity, how many times have you tried it?

Vegas has the over/under at 25.

I'm having the same problems.

This (and the avatar problem) issue is due to code changes in the upgraded version of vB. To make a long story short, the "styles" (ie RedsZone, Black RedsZone, Reds Away) are incompatible with the new version of vB. I'll fix these problems ASAP.

See this thread (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=156137) for a more thorough explanation of the problem and what the fix will entail from my end.

Until I can make all the necessary fixes to the regular style, if you go into your user control panel and switch the board skin/style to "Default", this should fix any javascript/avatar/quick reply issues. Please note that the skin will be a true vBulletin default, i.e. while everything will be functional and compatible with vB 3.5 (the latest version), it will not have a Reds theme. That's what I have to work on.

I changed to default, and I still can't seem to use quick reply.

Try it now (this will only work with "Default" set as the style).

I tried the default setting, but it was so ugly, that I couldn't handle it. I have no problem being patient until everything gets worked out, even if that's not until opening day 2006. :)

Now I can "quick reply"...but it appears that everybody's reputation scores have vanished. Is that supposed to happen?

Yes, that doesn't appear by default.

Yes, that doesn't appear by default.Boss: just for clarification, does that mean that these reputation points will now no longer be viewable?

They will be viewable once I make the necessary modifications so that the old Reds skin is compatible with vB 3.5.

You people are lucky you aren't depending on me to fix this thing....

You'd all be in withdrawal because there would be no forum! :lol:

I kind of like the default blue.

The old one reminded me too much of the Reds ;)

That's all I'm sayin' here. I figure that it's kind of like when my kids hang around while I'm doing some household repair and pepper me with questions about it. ;)

The changes are done and everything should work as designed with the default style.

One drawback is that because the code changed so much between the version we were running until yesterday (3.0.8) and the current version, (3.5) none of the custom add-ons I had installed will work with the 3.5 code. The good news is that these add-ons will eventually be "released" with code compatible with 3.5, but that usually takes a bit of time, until the people coding the add-ons have a good grasp on the stock vBulletin code they're modifying/adding on to. Here is a list of those custom addons we've (at least temporarily) lost:

I spoke with Boss about the quick reply when I saw a pre-release of this version. The quick reply will make for very fast game threads. I almost cant wait for the season just to use the quick reply. :lol:
