The download is here:

Functionally 2.5.2 is an update release of 2.5. If by settings, you mean what's in your, you can use your 2.5 in place of the 2.5.2 version. If you're referring to mods - Sorry but those will need to be reinstalled.

If you have a very large forum, it might be easier to simply replace the contents of './Admin', './Languages', and './Sources'. with the 2.5.2 versions.

Needless to say, always make a full backup of your forum and download it to a safe place before making any modifications of this type.

If you still need an 'auto' IP blocker - check out Derek Barnstorm's StopForumSpam mod at:

A list of mods that work with 2.5.2 is here:

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Hi guys, it is Dave 1 here under a different name. I have been unable to log into my account here , again and had to create a new account. I am glad I did becuase You brought up some interesting things that I need to know about and i hope you are still following this  post....

it does seem I dont have the latest version of Yabb and the websites I found with the allow deny IP's create them with illegal formats and they dont work very well but do  bit.  so my questions to you know are as follows.....

  • Where and How do I download the updated version of Yabb
    • How do I place it on my website WITHOUT changing any of the settings.... gong through all the settings again will take a along time, and I dont have time Smiley
      • Can you tell me more about the mods? just in case i am unable to upgrade to the new version because I would have to redo all my settings

        Thank you so much
