Is this the end of VLDpersonals?

Hi guys,
i´m wondering what happens, when our providers will switch to PHP 7 versions. Will there be an update of VLDpersonals? Or is there an other method to keep the scripts alive?
Any idea?
This is what VLDpersonals tells customers in their "Presale-Section":
Will I have access to vldPersonals source code?
Yes. We designed vldPersonals to be easy to customize and we believe this is one of its main advantages. When you purchase a license you will have complete access to the source code with an exception of 5 non-essential files that are encoded for security purposes and to prevent piracy. They will in no way affect your ability to customize the software and template files.

In this blog page I want to speak about CUPIDON. Do you know who is Cupidon? What about www.cupidon.ro ?
As I updated my website to the new technologies, I still hesitate what dating script to use on my matrimonial website here in Romania. The domain name cupidon.ro was registered long time ago in 1996.
For now I use Dating Script I am 90% satisfied, but as i found out that VLDPersonals it is a good dating script too, better for SEO maybe but do not contains responsive templates.
What other dating scripts, sure other then our preferred DS nd VLD, are you suing for your dating websites?

Native iOS/Android Applications

Has anyone pursued getting native Apple or Android products developed for their VLDPersonals based dating site?
I've seen a lot of apps that encapsulate the mobile web version of VLDPersonals within a webpage in the phone/tablet app itself, but have found them to be not as snappy/responsive as would be a natively developed app.

Hot Or Not Edit Filters

Am customising my hot or not, I don't want the filters to show different countries, as my site is restricted to one country only, so I want it to filter by city instead.
I've looked in lib.hotornot,php and hotornot.tpl in my templates but can't find where it's telling the filter to display by country so I can change that code to show cities instead.
Any help would be appreciated!

Browser caching

does anyone set cache headers for static content and if yes, how?
I think this can significantly improve loading and Google SERPs of any VLD website.
Thanks, Betty

Link directly to a search result!

Dear Community!
I have another problem on my site! I tried to search for this problem via google and I also found a few topics and they describe exactly what I need but it is not working!
Maybe someone here can help me out!
I included a custom drop down menu on my VLD page! At the drop down menu I want to give my users the possibility to choose "Country" and a drop-down menu with a few countries appears!
Now I want to link every country to a specific search result!
For example: When a user clicks on "Austria" he should be directed to the search results where he can see all users who live in Austria. I do not know why this is so hard to implement. Here is waht I´ve tried so far:
My link looks like this:
I always get a "No profiles were found" when I click on this link at my site but that is not possible because I have a few members within this country. The ID for the profile field in my database is 20 so I think I made everything correct.
Can someone please tell me what the link should look like so that the link is working?
Is that direct linking even possible with vldpersonals?
Please let me know!

Change Profile View - help needed!

Hey Guys!
Everyone knows the current view of the profile page right now!
You have tabs on the top where you can switch through the different custom fields you have created.
Well I would like that everything will be shown on the first page when you visit someone`s profile! I do not want to have the tabs at the top.
I already found the file and line of code but I have no idea how to change this.
The file is: member_profile.tpl
The code should start here:
<!-- BEGIN profile_groups -->
<li><a href="javascript:void(0)" id="profile_data_{rowcnt}_tab" onclick="switch_tabs('profile_data', {rowcnt}, 0, 1)">{group_name}</a></li>
<!-- END profile_groups -->

Can someone help me out and let me know what the code of the member_profile.tpl should look like so that I have my personal view from the profile page?
