  • [Suite] A couple of questions

    Greetings,

    If anyone knows, could you please point me to the right direction?

    I am interested in:

    - A way to replace the built in search of vBulletin - short of hacking all the areas that reference it. The question could be is there a way to switch the search off?

    - A way to remove the RSS icons and ability from individual forums? We serve our RSS as a single feed for the whole forum and it comes from feedburner.com to take advantage of ads.

    - On the Friendly URLs I have selected the mod_rewrite option and have used the supplied .htaccess file in the do_not_upload/rewrite folder from the distribution. I noticed that there is no mod_rewrite for blogs by default. Is there a way to enable it in that area too?

    - Finally is there a way to not allow a block on the sidebar to be collapsible? We have ads on the right hand side and do not want the users to 'hide' them.

    Thank you for any pointers/solutions you might provide.

    I've seen some users replace the default search with a Google search. You can edit the relevant templates to replace the vB Search box with the Google one.

    Depending on the size of your site, you could also use the Sphinx option that is in Beta at the moment.

    Again, if you edit the forumhome_forumbit templates, you can remove references to this here.

    The file provided is more if a starter/sample file than a definitive file due to differences in how it will work on different servers. If the other options in that file are working for you, you can add similar lines to make this work for the Blogs also.

    Edit FORUMHOME and comment out/remove this code:

    Code:
            <a id="sidebar_button_link" href="#">
                <vb:if condition="$show['sidebarposition'] == 'left'">
                <img id="sidebar_button" src="{vb:stylevar imgdir_misc}/tab-collapsed-left.png" alt="" />
                <vb:else />
                <img id="sidebar_button" src="{vb:stylevar imgdir_misc}/tab-collapsed.png" alt="" />
                </vb:if>
            </a>
