  • Getting Started with CMS Documentation Files (PDF)

    To help accelerate learning and mastering the CMS features in the vBulletin 4.0 Publishing Suite (beta 3) product, we put together an updated set of "Getting Started with CMS" documentations.

    There are 5 PDF documents and I think this might be the right order to read them:
    1. CMS_Sections.pdf (spilt into 2 pdf files)
    2. CMS_Permissions.pdf
    3. CMS_Articles.pdf (spilt into 2 pdf files)
    4. CMS_Widgets.pdf
    5. CMS_Grids_&_Layouts

    And if you missed my past blog post on "Skinning your vB4 Forum in 10 Easy Steps", you can go here and download the PDF and example style:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/entry...-10-Easy-Steps


    These are still working drafts and we will be continue to update them, but in the meanwhile I am hoping this will help everyone get to speed faster.

    Thank you for all your help and support.

      Don,Is there anyway to have it so that the section title header shows up on the front page and beneath that are all the articles that belong to that section? Like the following:FRONT PAGE
      • Section 1
        • Article 1
        • Article 2
      • Section 2
        • Article 1

  • Promoting Articles from the Forums
    by Don Kuramura
    One of the innovative new features on vBulletin 4.0 Publishing Suite is the cross-publishing "Promote to Article" functionality. In the spirit of promoting content discovery, we wanted to create features that will allow content to flow between Forums, Blogs, and Articles. For example, there might be a really popular post in the forums, but unfortunately it is buried inside page 13 of a thread. We will now have an option (if you have permissions) to “promote” a forum (or blog) post as a new artic...

  • Recovering a hacked vBulletin Site

    Symptoms

    Having your site hacked is something no owner wants to experience due to the fact it takes quite a bit of effort to fix, often times requiring payment to a experienced third-party when a owner feels inundated by the sheer amount of work required to troubleshoot and remedy the situation.
    • Site has been defaced - This is the most blatant form of hacking where your sites pages have been replaced with a very disruptive and sometimes rude message from the hacker themselves.
