    Are you looking forward to have multiple vbulletin forums *using multiple licensces* ?

    or you want to have different forums for your vbulletin board to be accessed by multiple sub-domains ?

      the second one
      I have multiple licenses
      but its one license multiple forums
      the key thing is to stay loged into all boards by registering into only one
      I know im not the only one that has asked this just looking for a quick reply

        well never really worked with this from so far what i have read on

        Setup as follows:
        1. create multiple sub-domains for your sub-forums

        2. re-direct this sub-domains to appropriate sub-forums from your control panel software.

        3. you can setup multiple skins to be used for this sub-domains.

        Caution - Since your sub-forums will still be accessible from main forums, you will have to note that there will be lot of duplicate content generated !
        Tip - you can try out a feature in vbulletin to hide your forums from getting listed in forums list, but can be accessbile if URL is known., available in forums manager.
