  • vbulletin for 2 different sites

    I know vbulletin support co-branding, but how do I place the link from my other site?

    e.g
    main site for vbulletin = http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/index.php

    my second site but using the same board with different look. What's the link?


    Is the creating of co-branding done in template?

    When you create new styles, they get their own style number. So you could have:

    www.yourboard.com/forum/index.php?styleid=1 (default one)
    www.yourboard.com/forum/index.php?styleid=2 etc.

        I can't get it to work.

        I have created

        2 templates
        2 styles
        2 Replacement variables.

        How do I check which is which styles id?

          To find the styleid, go into your Admin CP -> Styles -> Modify

          Now place your cursor over the 'properties' link for each style. You'll see the styleid in the URL locator box.

                Yes it just won't work. Probably it's just my lack of knowledge in using vB.

                Ok this is what happen.
                1. Created a new templates.
                2. Created a new Replacement variables.
                3. Created a new styles and associate them with the two new templates and replacement variables.
                4. Save the new header, footer and color schema for the new styles.
                5. check for the new styles id. (assuming it's 20)
                6. Test run in browse http://www.yourboard.com/forum/index.php?styleid=20
                7. Still looks the same as my default styles.
                8. Please HELP ME.

                  Is the style in question 'user selectable'? This needs to be set to yes.

                  Admin CP -> Styles -> Modify -> Properties -> User selectable? -> Yes

                    Ok, when I enable that option I get this problem.

                    Tried my newly created styles
                    www.yourboard.com/forum/index.php?styleid=2

                    Now when ever I launch the default styles
                    www.yourboard.com/forum/index.php

                    it keeps going to the new styles??

                        Do you have a test account on your board so I can check it out?

                          I have deleted the newly created styles. Should I created it again?

                            Yeah - otherwise it would be kind of hard to troubleshoot the problem!
