  • Is it easy to get out stuff from the DB with Vbulletin?

    I'm currently looking for something like this http://wiki.phpbb.com/Practical.Disp...external_pages

    It takes stuff out from the Database, like a portal. I can use my own template/layout with it.
    I was wondering if there is something like this for Vbulletin? I'm not looking for a portal.

    Thanks.

    vBulletin has an RSS external output you can use:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/v...group_external

    Otherwise, yes you can write your own code. Your best bet is to find existing modifications at vBulletin.org that do something similar and then tweak them to your needs, or just modify external.php.

      It's pretty simple to do. We managed to write our own script for Wordpress that shows the latest points. It basically queries the database and sorts it out for us. If you have a knowledge of MySQL it's super simple as you'd expect. No hidden secrets.

        It all depends on how much you understand that sort of thing, if you understand how it works, yes it should be easy.

        However, if you are say a beginner with no/little experience with MYSQL databases then it may prove to be a challenge.
        Jut a random internet person.

          Also, check my blog in a couple days. I've got a couple people testing a (unsupported) php content type to do stuff like this.
          Please- I'm not tech support. Don't send your problem reports to me unless I've asked you to.

            I don't see any script/code there. :S

            Well, I have basic knowledge of MySQL. I believe its more than that.. getting the posts out with the bbcode.

            Could you give me a link please?

            Thanks for the replies. One more thing the function I'm looking for have to take out the post infos with the BBcode.
            What I'm looking for example:
            Hello, this is the external page.


            and what not.. without the star of course:
            [*b]Hello, this is the external page[/b]

            And please delete the spammers post.
            Thanks =)

              If you followed my link, at the bottom was another link Implementing the External Data Provider.

              Again, this is NOT MySQL/PHP code to make your own output, this is using the built-in vBulletin RSS feed.


              And to answer your other question:

              This is bold text.

              [b]This is bold text.[/b]

              [noparse][b]This is bold text.[/b][/noparse]

                  It's easy enough to write your own code by querying the database directly and using included functions / classes to get things such as BBCode filtered out. That is beyond the scope of reply permitted within this forum, but can be provided over at vBulletin.org after the purchase of a license.

                    I do not want the BBcode to be filtered out, I want it to work.
                    I'm asking if there IS a premade script for it, Like the PhpBB one.

                    I really want to buy a vBulletin, but the function I need is very important.
