  • Database available to query from outside VB?


    I'm interested in doing a SQL query of the thread titles from outside vBulletin, and placing the results at the bottom of a related content (non-vB) page as hyperlinks to the correct thread. This would be a lot like the "similar threads" at the end of a vB thread, but placeable in any dynamically generated page.

    Is this easily achievable with vB?
    Can someone point me to documentation of the database structure?

      Can I please have some more information? I searched around and they have very high security there that keeps any non-owner from seeing any solutions. Strange... So, I was unable to get much info...

      Can someone please show me the database structure? Or is there a trial version that I could download, so I could see for myself?

        We really don't provide the db structure to unlicensed users. However doing something like this is very straight-forward (depending of course on your search criteria) and you should have no problem writing a suitable query.
