    The only reason you would need to call those variables is with custom pages. In the past, you would need PHP coding to do this. We did not support this though it was widely used.

    In vBulletin 5, we added the Site Builder which allows you to add a custom page by clicking on a link named "New Page". You can put anything on these pages using the modules available. Can even use PHP and Static HTML. Each new page automatically includes the header, navigation and footer without the use of any PHP variables.

    The variables $header, $footer, and $navbar no longer exist. You can use a {vb:template templatename} to include a template within another though. However the supported way of creating custom pages is using Site Builder and then placing modules on the new page created. Whether those modules are created by us or third-party programmers.

    Any further questions about directly accessing structures in the software for modifications should be directed to vBulletin.org.

    Actually, in custom pages you would have needed to eval those templates as well normally. We've never supported custom coding. vBulletin.org is where you can get help.

    Are you serious here? I am not asking you something that was never a part of your code which is why I asked it here since vbulletin.org is worthless to ask vb5 questions at. I am not asking you about a hack but about your actual code. I am not asking you to create some hack here.

    $header $navbar and $footer always globally returned the full header navbar and footer of vbulletin in every single vb3 and vb4 version of your software. The output of those 3 variables was what was printed on every single vb page. Now in vbulletin 5 I know there is only header and footer but there does appear to be a way to globally call the vb header and footer like there was in every single supported vbulletin in the last 10 years.

    It was a simple question and something the lead tech support guy should be able to answer.

    What you are asking about is not something we support or have supported in the past. Addon authors have developed their own methods for doing this.

    Has been asked there but where is the documenation on what you are talking about?

    More of a discussion for vBulletin.org...

    However I would recommend building modules that pull your external information and then place those modules on custom pages.

    Header Footers Styles

    I have been looking into the code base some. vBulletin has one of the biggest mod hack communities out there which also makes it one of the most popular community products out there. Now with the introduction of vb5 connect it appears to me that where before you where able to call the vb header footer and style with relative easy. This allowed mod developers the ability to include the vb header footer style around external applications and users to have a uniform site.

    Basically you include the global file and $header $footer $headinclude and everything would work fine.

    Is there a simple way to call the header footer in version 5?

    Is it the plan that you no longer are going to allow such a thing and if so do you not think your kind of setting yourself up to fail with this release. If you take away the ability of mod developers the create mods and the flexibility your product has always had that will have a serious outcome on your company I would think. I looked at vbulletin.org which is ran by your company and there is little if any talk in the vb5 development section.
