  • What’s new with Reputation?

    What’s new with Reputation?

    We’ve added a few things to vBulletin 4.2.0 to give you greater management control over reputations. You can now have users give a reason for raising or lowering another user’s reputations. These comments can then be displayed on a user’s profile in a separate tab to make them distinct from visitor messages and user activities. Not only that, but you can also set notifications for when a user gets reputation comments.

    As always, all of this can be managed from your AdminCP.

  • The Basic Anatomy of a vBulletin Page
    Wayne Luke

  • How to moderate the posts of new users only
    Wayne Luke
    To help combat spam, many users opt to have new user’s posts moderated until they’ve made a specific number of posts. 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.

    In order to do this, you will need to create a custom usergroup and a promotion.

    Creating a Custom Usergroup
    First, you need to setup the usergroup for your non-Moderated...
