It is possible, but not only downgrading is not supported, 1.6 also reached its EOL and is also not supported anymore.

As for the initial question:
MyTabs: http://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=456
Ajax PM Notification is kind of covered by MyAlerts, but I'm also writing a similar plugin that works without it.

Most of the rest is more or less easily doable with pure HTML/CSS/JS as I mentioned in my 1st post in this thread and there are tutorials for several.

I really miss the trash can plugin, though. 

Because of the page numbering.  You know, the soft-deleted stuff remains there like posts in queue for moderation, we don't see the pages the way others do.

Is there a way we could convert it for 1.8 use?

Two years later, the work needed to adapt a established forum with 30 smoothly running plugins and a heavy customised layout, still helps tip the balance when the administration ponders deciding whether to move to 1.8 or not.

If one is starting a new project, there's no discussion, 1.8 must be your starting point.

If you have an up-to-date forum based on 1.6 that has undergone lots of customisation work and has been working like a charm and passed all tests, do not fix what's not broken.

Greetings to all forum users.

Since the thread has become a basic survival guide, I've updated the title accordingly:

A MyBB plugin compatibility guide upon upgrading from 1.6 to 1.8
(former thread title: Advantages and Disadvantages of upgrading from 1.6 to 1.8)

If you have any news about the plugins covered by this topic, especially those still marked in red, feel free to update and ameliorate the list.

Best regards.
