  • What’s new with Reputation?

    What’s new with Reputation?

    We’ve added a few things to vBulletin 4.2.0 to give you greater management control over reputations. You can now have users give a reason for raising or lowering another user’s reputations. These comments can then be displayed on a user’s profile in a separate tab to make them distinct from visitor messages and user activities. Not only that, but you can also set notifications for when a user gets reputation comments.

    As always, all of this can be managed from your AdminCP.

  • How do I change the Activity Stream refresh rate?

    How do I change the Activity Stream refresh rate?

    By default, the Activity Stream checks for new content and refreshes every minute. If a user remains on the same page and has been inactive for 5 or more minutes, vBulletin automatically stops checking for new content. You can change how often the Activity Stream checks for new content by logging in to the AdminCP.



    Once there, click on the ‘Settings’ header, followed by the ‘Options’ link.

  • How do I change how many days of activity the Activity Stream displays?

    How do I change how many days of activity the Activity Stream displays?

    The Activity Stream stores your users activities for a set amount of time in days. You can change the length in which this the history is stored (up to 180 days). By default, you vBulletin stores 30 days worth of activities. Anything older than 30 days is removed from the stream. If you have an active site, you might want to reduce the amount of time it stores to reduce the strain on your server.


    To do this, login to the AdminCP. Once there, click on the ‘Settings’ header, followed...

  • How do I filter my Activity Stream?

    How do I filter my Activity Stream?

    The filter in the front end allows your users a certain degree of control over what appears in their activity stream. Please note that this feature does not override the admin settings you implement in the AdminCP. Using the filter is simple. First, login to the site and click the ‘What’s New?’ tab of the site. By default the Activity Stream will be the first option that displays in the submenu. A list of your user’s most recent activities will display on this page.

    What is Activity Stream?

    The Activity Stream is one of the newest and most visible features we’ve added to the vBulletin 4.2.0 release. It’s included in all core installs and is accessible in the “What’s New?” tab.

  • vB 4.0: Template Merging and 3-Way Comparison

    vB 4.0: Template Merging and 3-Way Comparison

    One of the most common complaints about vBulletin's upgrade process is applying the template changes. While the template history feature helped a little bit, it didn't go far enough. vBulletin 4.0 will introduce a feature to make applying template changes much easier: automatic merging and 3-way comparison. Whenever you upgrade, we will automatically look for templates that have changed and see if you customized those templates. If you have, we will automatically try to merge the changes in. If this...

  • Creating A Test Site (Updated)

    Creating A Test Site (Updated)

    When a new version of vBulletin comes out, there's always a clamour for people to be one of the first up and running with the latest version. While in the case of bug fixes, the need to upgrade quickly is understandable, too often on the forums we see people that haven't considered what effect an upgrade will have on their site. On a personal level, I never upgrade without testing first - this goes for major version changes (i.e. 3.x to 4.x), point releases (e.g. 4.1 to 4.2) or maintenance releases...

    Navigation Manager FAQ

    I can't find the item I created in the Navigation Manager, where is it?

    If you don’t immediately see the item you created in the Navigation Manager, try clicking on the name of the tab that you put it under. The Navigation Manager, by default, only displays the names of the tabs and hides the links and menus in the individual tabs.

    My Item is not displaying on the front page, where is it?

    If a newly created tab, link, or menu isn’t displaying on your front page, the first thing...

    How to Delete a Navigation Item


    It’s as simple to remove a Navigation Item as it is to add it. Go to the “Edit” dropdown menu to the right of the item you want to delete and select the “Delete” option. This open a confirmation.

    Clicking “Yes” will remove the item and all items nested beneath it. That means if you have a tab with multiple links and menus, all the links and menus will be removed along with the tab. Likewise, if you’re deleting a menu with multiple links, all the links will be remov...

  • 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
    by TheLastSuperman
    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.
