    Like in previous versions of vBulletin, the AdminCP has privileged access to a lot of things. The demo mode we had functional in vB3/4 for our own uses isn't fleshed out, its not a high usage feature as you can imagine.

        Like all previous versions of vBulletin, the AdminCP has some serious power, and anyone who you cannot trust with a gun to your head, should not be given access to the AdminCP. There are lots of things you can do as an admin with admin access that you wouldn't want someone to do.

        This is true of any version of vbulletin from vb1 to vb5.

        Us not giving out admin demo access is because our demo mode system was not seen as a high priority, it has increased security and locks demo users out of some features which could be abused by random third parties. This demo mode has been used since we've had a vBulletin 3 admin demo.

        I can say this with some truth, you're wrong on this subject.

            While it's probably not worth the time and resources at this point, wouldn't a full fledged simulator of the admin panel be interesting? You could go through all the pages, view all the options, see how it responds... but without the downsides of actually granting people access to the admin CP...

              yes like how it was on the vb4 admin demo and it would be interesting to see what its like

              i still think vb4 should be finished before even thinking about vb5 though

                        Not a lot of change in the AdminCP at this time... Style Change and a new Search.

                        The Site Builder is the new big administration tool that lets you build pages, create styles and so forth. It is located within the front-end of the site and accessible to Administrators with the proper permissions. You can use it to build custom pages, place widgets, configure advertising, change the layout of all your forums, some of them or make each one unique. You can quickly add new forums to the mix, delete blogs from users, delete social groups and more.

                        I added a blog about it earlier. It is linked in my signature.

                          Hey Wayne with the changing of layouts are we still using grids or can you adjust the layout without creating or adding a grid. Also is there a limit on modules you will be able to add.

                            Grids of sorts.
                            No limit on the modules that can be added to a page.
