  • Ill buy if you can explain how to install exactly and if it has the following feature

    Bold

    Italicsize

    Word Hyperlink (make any string of letters like "abc" link to any site, instead of just having "http://www.abc.com" link to "http://www.abc.com" I can have the string of letters "abc" or "xyz" link to "http://www.abc.com" or any other site)

    Size variation of characters to be bigger AND smaller than default

    over 9,000 characters per post ( lol but seriously at least over 800 )

    Dark theme available that's easy on the eyes

    Ability to edit posts

    Honestly, I can already see all these features in typing this message.

    So I guess my only question left is from buying this .zip package, as I understand it, how do I then install it?

    And how am i supposed to figure out this information in a way other than bothering the community?

    Check out the vBulletin Manual for installation instructions.
    If you read it online, it must be true.

      It is so simple to install, even when I was a beginner and brand new to this stuff it really was simple. However I have not idea what your skill level is like, but if you do have problems following the above manual and the install instructions that come with it, then you may need to purchase the installation package, however give it a go yourself, it really is not that hard.

          vBulletin has a Variable Replacements feature that allows you to automatically replace certain things people type with something else. You can use this. There are also add-ons at vBulletin.org for more control over this.

          It's easy to change the font sizes.

          This limit is configurable in the Administrator control panel.

          vBulletin 4 themes are few and far between right now. But look at the dark themes here on vBulletin.com. Scroll down and open the popup Style menu on the bottom left.

          Not only can you edit the posts of users, and not only can users edit their own posts, but vBulletin can be configured to maintain an audit trail of past edits and the original post.

          vBulletin is pretty easy to use.

          You'll need to unzip the 1,000 such files to your computer and then use an FTP client (like FileZilla) to upload them to your web site. Then you'll need to create a MySQL database and tell vBulletin where to find it. This is detailed further in the instruction manual.

          You can check the user manual, and you can also check out the Admin Demo where you get to try out a test vBulletin forum for 24 hours. This is NOT something you download, but a test you can run here at vBulletin.com.

            When will a "tip" function be enabled to give people like you, being so helpful, a tip?

            Nothing big, just like 2-20 cents your way whenever you make a helpful or entertaining post.

            How cool would that be?

            Like a integrated link to a paypal account.

            No, seriously, is this on the agenda?

            and if you guys want my spare change, just tell me your paypal email

              no and i doubt there ever will be, however you can set up paypal on your site for this if you wanted too.

                  If you get stuck you can always come here and get help. The majority of those that respond when they put their fingers to keyboard, you're going to learn something.
                  Only advice I can give you is to shop carefully for a good host. Pay mind to the versions of MySQL and PHP your host is running.
