    Creating a Redirect Channel

    In older versions of vBulletin, you could specify a URL to redirect a forum to another location. This could be on your site or elsewhere. With the release of vBulletin 5, this functionality was removed. You can recreate this functionality using Template Hooks. I will outline the steps to create a channel redirect here.

  • vBulletin Password Handling

    vBulletin Password Handling

    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...

    The Basic Anatomy of a vBulletin Page

    vBulletin 5's user output is created using a system of pages that are customizable by the site administrator. This system is called Site Builder. By breaking the system down into pages, a lot of control is given to the system administrator. By using Site Builder, you can create a unique site without any knowledge of HTML or CSS.

    vBulletin's pages are created using layers built upon a grid layout. Each page starts with a layout which defines the content areas of the page. Layouts define...

    Enabling Two-Factor Authentication

    vBulletin 5.3.0 and higher will allow site owners to enable Two-Factor Authentication for Administrator and Moderator functionality. This is an extra layer of security provided to make sure your user data remains as safe as possible.

The security token is created using industry standard algorithms and a unique string...

  • How to moderate the posts of new users only

    How to moderate the posts of new users only

    To help combat spam, many users opt to have new user’s posts moderated until they’ve made a specific number of posts. This allows the Admin/Moderator team to keep potentially malicious posts out of the public eye until a user has effectively passed a ‘probationary period’ as a member of the site.

    In order to do this, you will need to create a custom usergroup and a promotion.

    Creating a Custom Usergroup
    First, you need to setup the usergroup for your non-Moderated...
