  • Making the forum homepage appear differently

    Aplogies if this is a very basic question, but I dont have a clue where to search for the answer. I recently purchase the full licensed version of vBullitin for my new website launching next week. Im running vBullitin 3.7.3 Patch Level 1.

    I basically would like to have my forum appear like they have implemented here:

    www.boards.ie

    So basically the table they have in the center of the screen listing the latest posts in the various forums and subforums etc.

    The current landing page when I click on our forum is like this:

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/


    Any advice appreciated...

    This is not possible by default. They use custom script that hooks into vBulletin and displays content the way they want to.

      ^^ thank you. Another quick question, not sure how to describe it properly, basically when you make a post, you name, avatar etc appear on the left hand side and not above the post like they do on my forum and on this forum. Example of what i mean:
      http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2055405999

      Any way to alter that in the admin area?

        This is an option in the Admin CP:

        Admin CP -> vBulletion Options -> Style & Language Settings -> Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template -> Yes
