    Nope, seeing as anyone can modify the templates, it's pretty easy.

    That's just the forumhome template

    It just has to be reset.

        Sorry about that. One of the disadvantages of having an actual live demonstration of the Admin CP is that any idiot can come in and ruin it for everyone else. We have the demo set to automatically reset itself several times a day because of this, but there's no easy way to make this demo easily accessible to everyone yet keep out the idiots.

        And this is hot 'hacking'. Because this is a live admin demo, anyone can go in and change it. It doesn't take any hacking or skill at all.

        The funny thing is that there are better 'free' bb systems available than vB Lite ever was. This 'person' is definitely not playing with a full deck.

          Well I didn't know users were able to skin it themselves, hence I thought it was hacked

          And vB lite was not as great as this person makes it out to be, there are, as you said, "full version" board softwares which are very powerful. This guy needs to get out more

                    /reset.php resets it.

                    Try it yourself

                        Yes, the demo resets on a regular schedule. I'm not sure how frequently though.

                          why don't you remove the 'submit' button on the templates, and styles so that they can view all of it, but they can't change it

                          just an idea

                            Your signature is BIG(ger then allowed), you can put [size=1] ..signature.. [/size] around it to keep it like it is i guess.

                              Then they'd think that the template engine wasn't working.

                              I had an idea of each user gets their own implementation of the demo based on sessions and once a session expires (10 minutes or so) then that instance of the demo kills itself.
