  • vB5 How To: Add a signature divider

    vB5 How To: Add a signature divider

    AS OF 5.1.3 THIS IS NO LONGER REQUIRED, SIGS HAVE A DIVIDING LINE BY DEFAULT

    By default, vB5's signatures do not have a dividing line to separate them from the post they are under.

    On longer posts this can make it difficult for users to distinguish where the post ends and the signature starts.

    To add a dividing line that matches the general styling, add this to the template css_additional.css:
    :
    .post-signature {
        border-top: 1px dotted {vb:stylevar

  • vB5 How To: Add forum names into Today's Posts / New Topics

    vB5 How To: Add forum names into Today's Posts / New Topics

    One major thing that has been missing in vB5, has been the name of the forum in the Today's Posts / New Posts results. You are told the name of the topic, who started it, when it was started, who made the most recent post, etc...but you are not told what forum it's in.

    For many, this is essential, as they only want to read threads in forums they are interested in.

    Well, here's how to add this back in.

    First, add this to the template css_additional.css

  • Creating a Redirect Channel
    by Wayne Luke

    In older versions of vBulletin, you could specify a URL to redirect a forum to another location. This could be on your site or elsewhere. With the release of vBulletin 5, this functionality was removed. You can recreate this functionality using Template Hooks. I will outline the steps to create a channel redirect here.

    Note: This functionality is not available on vBulletin Cloud at this time.
    This tutorial involves changing options, creating custom templates and building a temple hook. Allowi...

    by Wayne Luke
    Introduction to Site Builder Site Builder is the newest innovation in vBulletin’s line of site management products. It allows an administrator user, with the correct permissions, to change and edit the content and look of their site without logging in to the AdminCP. Where Site Builder deals with the outward facing portion of a site, the AdminCP controls the nuts and bolts of the system.

  • vBulletin 5 Database Tools
    by Wayne Luke
    The vBulletin Database Tools are a series of command line scripts that allow you to quickly make modifications to your database in order to provide performance fixes and update them to UTF8 standards. IMPORTANT- These files must be run via the command line, either if you have local access to the server or ssh access. If you are on shared hosting your access may be limited. You may ask your host for ssh access. If they say it is not available ask if they will run the commands for you. These scri...

    by Wayne Luke
    The database is the heart and soul of your vBulletin site. All content and user information is stored in the database. Protect the database and you protect your site. This document will go over the creation and usage of a MySQL database for the use of vBulletin 5 Connect. If you have shared hosting and are provided a web-based control panel like cPanel, you will need to access your hosting provider's documentation on how to carry out these operations. This document assumes a general familiarity with the command line operations of your Operating System. All commands listed assume that you are accessing your server via SSH. ...

  • vBulletin Password Handling
    by Wayne Luke
    Note: vBulletin Cloud sites cannot use custom password schemes at this time. The core security of your site is the User Password and how it is stored. In the beginning, vBulletin used a simple MD5 hash to represent the password. However as Floating Point Processors (i.e. GPU and ASICs) have become more powerful, this method proved to be risky and reduced security. If we significantly changed the password scheme, then users wouldn't be able to login and would need to change their passwords fir...
