  • Top 10 best tips / mods when setting up a new vBulletin v4.x Publ./Mob. suite?

    Hi All :-)
    I'm a newbie vB here but not to forums. Have runned several forums over the years on different software (like phpBB etc). But this time I think I'm going to buy, today actually, the vBulletin 4.x + Publishing + Mobile suite, since I think it's the most suited and has the most updated functionality (mobile access is a must for one) for my current and upcoming needs. I'm going to set this up on a Mac OSX Server w Lion (OSX 10.7.1) on our webhotel.

    Some Q:s;
    - Latest version?
    - Any in-built update features or is it manually every time?
    - Top 10 tips / mods or "must have's"?
    - Setting up vB to charge members for payment / month or /year?
    - Creating an private access forum w sub forums and private blogs, articles, pages etc? (Setting up a private developers forum)
    - Any e-commerse available (even from 3rd party)?
    - Best practice w connecting vBulletin w Facebook, Twitter & YouTube?

    Happy for any tips, pointers, links, experiences that you wanna share to help me set this up quickly this week - THANKS!

      Thank's Trevor,
      1) But this is not an support issue (not yet anyway ;-)) and I'm mostly looking for tips from experienced vB 4.x forum admins.

      2) The answers I'll get here will also deeply impact on my decision to go forward with my purchase of vB 4 Pupl.+Mob. Suite, hence the post here in Pre-Sales Questions...
