vBulletin 3.8.2

vBulletin 3.8.2 is a maintenance release for the vBulletin 3.8 series, which addresses various issues found since 3.8.1 was releases. Maintenance releases follow our scheduled release policy.

Some of the issues fixed include:

  • Social group dicussion email notifications don't always work
  • Access masks not reset properly with paid subscriptions
  • Friend requests received by users that are in "Tachy Goes to Coventry"
  • Profile field category privacy ignored in "About Me" tab
  • BB code case maintained when not parsed
  • External.php feeds don't handle thread]/post BB code properly
  • Avatars show up in social groups/visitor messages when users don't have permission

Social Group Subscriptions Improved

In 3.8.1, social group subscriptions were disabled because of confusion over the functionality they provided. In 3.8.2, they have been improved and re-enabled. When subscribing to a group, you can now choose to receive a daily or weekly digest of the discussions that happen within that group. You can still choose to not receive any email notifications when subscribing to a group.

Group subscriptions which were created before 3.8.2 will not automatically send email notifications. These users can modify their existing subscriptions or resubscribe to enable email notification.
