Legacy themes removed
Just to let everyone know I've removed the original legacy themes for chronicles.
I had originally thought there would be no harm in keeping them running.
However, an inevitable point that arises is that everytime vbulletin released an update for the forum software, every single theme would need its templates updating.
The vbulletin templating system is not simple - there is somewhere around a 100 template sections that need to be kept up to date, and while only a minority of these would need actually editing each software update, it was still more maintenance than I was happy to do.
And because of the recent security situation, having old forum styles that run old legacy code not only means they may not work properly, but also that they may become a security risk.
Therefore I've taken the decision to delete the legacy themes and keep with the current one.
However, am expecting to update this one soon as part of a general site redesign that was already commissioned before the recent security scare. No major changes expected, but will mean there will only be the one theme to keep updated.
