  • vBulletin Book

    http://www.packtpub.com/vbulletin/book

    Is it worth it for someone who has been using vBulletin for 2 years?

    Not really.... It is geared as a beginner's book. The edition I have doesn't have much more information than the online documentation.

      Is there any books out there aimed at the customization of vBulletin? (I doubt it xD)

        Read the articles section on vbulletin.org and you shouldn't look elsewhere.
        You're spending millions of dollars on a website?!

          I really wish there was a vBulletin book worth the buy. Or heck, even maybe a book about discussion forums in general (monetization, management, how to setup etc.) but I have yet to find anything. Just hundreds of SEO books

                Thanks for the info, Wayne. I saw the school library had 'Community Building on the Web : Secret Strategies for Successful Online Communities'. Despite being a bit old, it seemed like a good read - especially for $0.

                The other one that looked interesting was 'Managing Online Forums: Everything You Need to Know to Create and Run Successful Community Discussion Boards'. According to the publishing date, it's supposed to be published in 3 days! For only $17, it might be worth a shot. I'm debating back and forth on whether it'll be worth a read or not. Probably couldn't hurt.

                  I went to my local bookstore and they actually had 'Managing Online Forums: Everything You Need to Know to Create and Run Successful Community Discussion Boards'. For those who are looking for ideas/a overview of how to run a community, I was pleasantly surprised about how good the book is. Even after the first 3 chapters of the book, I already have a number of new ideas for my community - I think it's certainly worth the $20.

                    Is it me, or are book titles longer and longer each year?

                    I remember the good old days where my Stephen King book would just be called Carrie

                      "Managing Online Forums" is actually the title; the rest is the subtitle and they made it very keyword rich! hehe.

                      Thanks for the mentions, Wayne (been a long time, hope you're doing well) and MidnightPyro. I'm glad that you've enjoyed the book so far.

                      Thanks,

                      Patrick

                        That's SEO.
                        That's the end of that!
