I, would of thought 2.5 would have "sub-boards" so i assume YaBB 3.0 will then ?


just been reading ya fixes and new features looks good but no sub-board listed?


is it complicated to add it in YaBB ??

(because sub boards should of been in YaBB years ago right?)

Upgrading to 2.5 for bug fixes is a huge benefit though. Plus it makes the transition to 2.6 easier with less of a jump between versions.

Not sure what the problem with sourceforge is at the moment. Until the mirrors are up and running again, you can grab a copy of the new release from Jet Li's website:

YaBB_2_5_AE-upgrade.zip (703 kb)
YaBB_2_5_AE-full_install.zip (1,61 MB)

Thnx Michael. I have updated the Full Package. Because Syntax Highlight code was not in LWS Theme (default.html).

I used the "2.5 upgrade all" to upgrade from 2.4 to 2.5. I noticed after the ugprade my main board index looked nothing like the one here. When I compared the upgrade package to the full version, there were some template files that aren't in the upgrade package. For example, the new boards.gif. Using the upgrade package still gives me the 2.4 blue folders and the basic look of 2.4. Did I miss some instructions somewhere?
