  • The Basic Anatomy of a vBulletin Page
    Wayne Luke
    vBulletin 5's user output is created using a system of pages that are customizable by the site administrator. This system is called Site Builder.

This allows the Admin/Moderator team to keep potentially malicious posts out of the public eye until a user has effectively passed a ‘probationary period’ as a member of the site.
