  • How to Move a Navigation Item

    How to Move a Navigation Item


    Unlike changing the Display Order of an item, moving an item changes its parent. So, if you want to move a link from one tab to another, or a menu to another tab, or even a link in a menu to a tab, this is the article for you. First, find the item you want to move. Then click on the “Edit” dropdown menu to the right of the item and select the “Move” option. The page will automatically reload with the move form:

    Using the ‘Parent” menu, you can now move the item to wh...

    How to Change the Display Order of Your Navigation Bar


    In addition to adding tabs, links and menus to the Navigation Bar, you can also change the order in which these items appears on your front page. To do this, you simply have to change the number in the Display Order to reflect the order in which you want the items to show up. For example, an item labelled 1 will display farther left than an item labelled 2 and so on and so forth. When you're done, click save and the form will reload with your new display order....

    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 Widget

    To create a new Widget, go to AdminCP > vBulletin CMS > Widgets:

    Grid & Layout Manager

    The vBulletin CMS allows you to customise your layouts to suit your needs. These layouts can then be used in different Sections of your CMS to give each Section it's own look - couple this with it's own style (see this article on how to change these in your Sections) and you can really start to give your CMS a sense of individuality.

  • 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...
