    Customizing your Profile

    We have created this document to help you understand how the new user profile customization variables work. We walk through the six groups of variables and show by screen shots how the various elements on the page are affected. In the screen shots below, everything except the settings group being demonstrated is set to “gray”. Also the colors used are selected to be very different. This is of course unlike any real page you will ever see, but makes it easier see what's happening. You might want to put on your sunglasses before proceeding.


    To get started, click on the "Customize Your Profile" button in the top right corner of your profile. This will open an overlay that provides the tools you need.

    How to Setup Your Forum

    Introduction
    Congratulations, you’ve just successfully installed the vBulletin suite! But what do you do next? Like most of us, you just want to set up your forum and start getting users in to make posts and start discussions. It’s easy to do and we’ll show you how!

    Step 1: Create a Category The first step is to set up a category. A category is like a folder where you put your forums. It shows up as a header on your forum display page. Users can not post in a category. You start by logging in to the Admin Control Panel with the username and password you created on installation. Click on the link in the menu to the left beneath the vBulletin “Forums & Moderators” In the form that opens in the frame to the right, fill out the title you w...

  • A Quick Guide to Moderating Your Forum

    A Quick Guide to Moderating Your Forum

    Introduction
    So, you’ve suddenly (or not so suddenly) found yourself in the position to moderate a forum and you’re not sure what to do. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what to do or when to do it, that’s something you’ll have to figure out on your own or with your admin. But! I can and will tell you how to do it.

    Moderating a forum isn’t hard, especially with vBulletin’s conveniently located Moderation Tools menu. The forum you’re moderating should look something like this



    If it doesn’t, contact your admin and have them double-check to make sure you have the right permissions.

    The Moderation Tool Menu and How to Use it
    Like the steps to a dance, the basic actions for moderating your forum are the same. It’s all the variations that are different and allow you to do different things. That said, let’s give you the basics so you can be on your way.

    The Moderation Tool menu is located at the bottom of both the thread list and post displays. It houses everything you need to moderate your forum from the options to close a thread to retrieving a deleted thread. What you want to do is select the thread you want to act on by clicking the checkbox to the side of it.

    For posts, this checkbox can usually be found in the top right h...
