    Customizing vBulletin
    Welcome to the world of vBulletin Customizations. We want your vBulletin installation to be as unique as you want it to be. In order to help you acheive this we have provided this group of forums to you. I would like to take the time to discuss how they work and how you can find what you need easily.

    vBulletin Hacks
    In these forums you can find help on modifying the vBulletin code to add new features or change how features work.

    vBulletin Hacking Rules:
    Hacks are not template changes. Hacks are not questions on how to use a feature. Hacks are PHP code changes, nothing more and nothing less. If it can be done from the control panel it is not a hack.
    1. vBulletin Lite hacks cannot be distributed.
    2. Place all Hack Requests in the "Requests" forum. This will make it easy for hack writers to see what you want.
    3. Before requesting a new hack or add-on be sure to search the forums to see if it has been done already.
    4. Make sure to specify whether you want a Hack for 1.1.X or 2.0 when making your request. The code is not interchangeable.
    5. When Releasing Hacks put them in the appropriate forum.
    6. Complete files from vB must not be posted. You may only post instructions for the user to change the file themselves.

    • Requests
      If you don't know how to do something and would like to ask someone else to do so, then you can make a request here. Please make sure your request is as thorough as possible and include sample code or screenshots where necessary. If a vBulletin Hacker has the time, they can volunteer to do build it for you. Not all requests will be honored though as they are done on a volunteer basis.
    • Releases: Version 2.X
      This is where completed hacks are released. These hacks are not tested or supported by Jelsoft or the vBulletin developers. They are provided as-is as a public service to the community. Often times the author of the hack will provide minimal support through the forums. The hacks in this forum are supposed to work on vBulletin 2.0.0 or higher.
    • Releases: Version 1.1.X
      This where hacks for versions before 2.0.0 are released. There is no official support for any version of vBulletin prior to 2.0.0.

    vBulletin Templates
    This is where you talk about changing your templates. Look for template suggestions, how to access new features just by changing the templates and more. Individual modifications of templates should be posted here. Any new features that do not require changes to the PHP code should be posted here.

    vBulletin Graphics and Styles
    Talk about everything about the look and feel of your site. This includes graphics, colors and overall layout or site integration. Looking for feedback on your new forums? Post a review request in here. Share your graphics or ask for new ones.
