PostRelease for vBulletin Installation Guide


  • PostRelease for vBulletin Installation Guide

    PostRelease is a content marketing platform allows brands to broadcast their content into as sponsored posts on relevant websites, forums and blogs. PostRelease allows your forum to generate revenue from major brands that are looking to engage readers with quality content rather than interrupt them with ads. Thousands of forums are already a part of the network and generating revenue with PostRelease.

    The PostRelease system for vBulletin is a vBulletin-approved plugin that manages the placement of the posts on your forum.

    These posts are clearly labeled as sponsored with the advertiser listed as the author. The posts are inserted as a new thread in the threadlist view of categories that are contextual relevant to the branded content. They are positioned as the first post just underneath any sticky posts in the category.

    Every sponsored post thread is closed so there are no community responses to review or manage.
    When a user clicks on a sponsored post, the user it taken to the post detail page on your site- the user does not leave your forum to read the post. You can choose to only show sponsored posts to your guest (not logged-in) users.

    The PostRelease plugin is designed to be easy to install and manage; you’ll have access to a dashboard that will let you control where posts can be placed and whom they are shown to. There is no commitment- you can uninstall the plugin at any time.

      agree, vbulletin needs to make things that enhance our community and forums. Better search, Contextual Search would be cool, review section and keyword ads would be more what I am looking for.

      Indeed, I've found adsense makes similar errors in misunderstanding the context of my sites. In one case, I had a website for a friend's Turkey holiday-home in a town called 'Milkum'. I was confronted daily by advertisements for milk-products and various turkey dishes.
      In another case, a site I run promoted equal rights for men - yet insisted on putting feminist adverts on the page regardless that feminism promotes inequality for men (by practise, not claim).
      I wouldn't be surprised if similar misunderstandings will happen here too.

  • 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...

    by TheLastSuperman

    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.
