  • vBulletin 3 to vBulletin 4 Style Conversion Tool

    vBulletin 3 to vBulletin 4 Style Conversion Tool

    As vBulletin 3 approaches EOL (end of life) when it will no longer be actively developed, we have developed a style conversion tool to facilitate converting vBulletin 3 styles to be compatible with vBulletin 4.

    We are planning to release this tool as part of vBulletin 4.1.3. Note that this tool is currently being tested, so the functionality when you see it may differ from what is described in this blog post, based on feedback from QA and other testers.

  • Widgets


    vBulletin's CMS allows you to create smaller applications that fill in the Layout content. Where the Layout used organizes the Widgets and orders how they appear, it’s the individual Widgets that define what sorts of data are displayed. Widgets can be added, deleted, and edited through the Widget Manager in AdminCP.

    Creating a New Grid To create a new layout, you first need to create a Grid - if you don't already have a Grid you wish to use. A Grid controls th...

  • 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...
