  • [CMS] Link to the vBulletin 4.0 forums/CMS documentation?

    I'm looking for the link to the full documentation for 4.0. The page at http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/ appears to only have the docs for 3.8.5.

    Can someone point me to the correct location for the full documentation? Trying to learn about the new features such as Categories vs. Sections, etc. in the CMS.

    (I assume that this documentation does exist somewhere, since the product has been gold for quite a while now...)

    No answer? That's not good. No documentation, apparently. Keep that in mind if you're planning to buy a license.

      Asking people to link you to something that doesn't exist is often going to have this result.

      There is piecemeal documentation here: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/content.php but what you asked for was "the full documentation". It does not yet exist.

        Yes, I realized.

        For a product that was released to paying customers months ago, shouldn't there be documentation? Between this and the lack of any working impex support (tickets go unanswered for weeks and then aren't resolved), I'm starting to regret having purchased a VB license.

        The focus is clearly on their Forums product and they're pretty much completely ignoring the CMS product that I paid a $100 premium for...

          Have you not had the need to get support for Impex in the past?

          I was always of the impression that Impex Support was a best-efforts basis (it's just Jerry doing it). Had a look, but can't find it expressly mentioned as being Supported anywhere.

            Yes, it's supported right here. http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-Import-System

            They have a whole dedicated support forum for it and accept support tickets from licensed users. That means it's officially supported.

              Sorry, but that's terrible logic.
              http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-Import-System - "Post here to ask questions about or get help with vB's Impex import system to import data from other forum software."

              http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...roubleshooting - "Use this forum to ask questions about how to do things in vBulletin 2 and how to troubleshoot specific problems."

              The presence of a Forum for something does not imply Support for it.

                Ok, how about here then: http://www.vbulletin.com/index.php?do=features

                Look under 'Import Facility'.

                Also, this post from a VB dev: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...mp-CMS-Support
                As of 1.94 ImpEx now supports vB4 and development has begun for CMS importers, Drupal 6 currently being available.
                My current (one month old) open support ticket deals with the failure of Drupal 6 stories to import. The support was announced in December (four months ago).

                Also, the vBulletin 2 support forums exist because at one time that product was officially supported. It's now obsolete. VB4 with CMS is the current supported version.

                  According to the Announcement Boards, they finally released (some) 4.0 documentation today: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...-Documentation

                  There's still no CMS documentation though, that's still a "work in progress". A cursory glance through the "new" documentation indicates that it's basically a cut-and-paste of the 3.0 docs with minimal changes (I found pages that still refer to things like vb3 database tables, here's an example: http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m..._repair_tables )

                  Basic CMS Documentation. Will be continually expanded.
                  If you take a look (and do a search for 'CMS'), you'll see just how "basic" it is (just a few tiny references).

                  Hopefully we'll have some real docs soon, since the product has been gold for months now. Please?
