    Dont worry about being new to vbulletin, just ask your question. We were all new at one time or another.

    Any hosting company that has the free time to do this .. isn't a good hosting company.

    Time to change your passwords and move on.

    there is a difference between being hosted and give your license information to anybody... if the guy install your site, you also have to give him your member infos to access the install process... opening the door to any piracy.

    it's not a day to day situation, but it can happen. if you have a host at 5$/month and he say he would install everything you need, i would suspect seriously his talent but also his will to charge you only 5$/m...

Twice now I've scrolled-up thinking were did he post that in this thread that you've quoted.
    Bit off topic, but ok. First time ive ever heard about that, perhaps you could have PMed me.

    Quite a lot of people have post quotes in their signatures, i dont see how it can be a problem.

    As for where it was quoted, it was from some post about an admin needing help. cant remember exactly where it is.

    What could he do with that copy? Sell it ? There are nulled versions of vB 3.8.4 on the market,freely available.

    Thanks all, I actually am hosting it with a company that will instal it for free and even added the blog free of charge (I had to show proof of purchase of course)

    all other mods, templates or fixes can be done for a small fee. I'm very happy with them. I can focus on HTML design and content.

    When you start with vBulletin, the http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html DOCS are a good place where to start. you can also request a professional installation to make sure your site is well installed. Once that is done, you can play with the machine and learn how to handle things one by one..

    I agree, maybe VB can disable quotes in sigs.... I'm not sure why he would want this to begin with also....

    Still learning the ins and outs but you can simply ask on the support forums and generally you'll get a speedy answer to your question.

    vBulletin is very hard to begin with, took me 2 weeks to learn how to do everything i do.

    Most of the mods and extensions will come with an installation script which automatically integrates within your forum, others will install but you have to manually add the links to access it.

    But as stated in the above post, your best bet is to setup a test forum and just play around with everything until you are happy with the results you get.

    VB can be very overwhelming to start. My best advise would be to set up a test forum and then sytematically go through all the options in the admincp. Takes a while, but this gave me a good understanding of the program and it's default features.

    Once I got a grasp of the above, I moved to vb.org and started playing with adding mods/other features. Once I installed a mod in my test forum and liked it, I installed it on my live forum.

    I'm still learning with VB, but it has been an interesting journey and fun along the way. Frustrating at times, but still fun
