This is a discussion on vBulletin 3.6.1 Released within the General Discussion forums, part of the vBSEO SEO Plugin category; vBulletin 3.6.1 Released - vBulletin Community Forum...
A ton of template mods
Has anyone with vbSEO successfully upgraded? I made a test board, but vbSEO didn't seem to work... If I clicked on a rewritten URL, I got a page not found error.
Running 3.6.1 and vBSEO RC4 fine here. Everything seems in order so far.
Oooh, some changes!
Changes of Note Since vBulletin 3.6.0
* Admin CP News System - additional information beyond the latest version can now be delivered to you when you visit your admin control panel. We will be using this system to make you aware of product updates and other important company information. Once you have read a piece of news, you can "dismiss" it so it won't appear again.
* Infraction System: Infraction Extension - when the same type of infraction is received twice, the second offense can now be tacked on to the first one, extending the length it's valid for. For example, a user is given an infraction for spamming posts that expires in 1 day. An hour later this user is given another spamming posts infraction. Since the user already had an active spamming posts infraction, this new infraction's expiration time is added to the end time of the previous infraction. Effectively, this new infraction will now end 1 day and 23 hours later instead of the default of 1 day.
* Infraction System: Automatic Bans - users can now be moved to banned usergroups. A stepped system can be implemented such that increasing number of points or infractions results in lengthening ban perioids.
* RSS Import Improvement - the RSS import system now handles several common but invalid RSS formats. Compatibility with character sets is also improved.
* CAPTCHA for Guest Searches - you may now optionally force guests to prove they are human before searching
* Podcast Improvements - several podcast options can now be set per thread rather than just per forum
* "Search This Thread" Improvements - additional options are now available for when using "Advanced Search" from "Search This Thread"

bah, I just finnished upgrading to 3.6.0 yesterday :(
I just ran through the upgrade and it was much less painful than I was thinking it would be. No problems with vbSEO at all as far as I can tell.
The templating history system worked wonders for me, but I did notice two or three individual template changes that didn't make it up on the vBulletin.com announcement thread. I've been heavily modding templates, so I was VERY concerned, but as it turns out, only 6 of the newly modified templates were in my customized list.
