  • How do I give a user permission to see the Who Read a Thread feature?

    As we've mentioned in other articles, turning on the 'Who Read a Thread' feature does not guarantee that a user will have the permissions to view this feature. The user must be in a usergroup that has the permissions to see the feature. You can give a usergroup these permissions by logging in to the AdminCP.

    When you've done this, click on the 'Usegroup Manager' beneath the 'Usegroups' header. This will open a new form to the right with a list of your usergroups.

    Select the usegroup you want to modify and click on the 'Go' button to the right of the dropdown list.

    The page will reload again. Find the section titled 'Forum Viewing Permissions' and select the 'Yes' radio button to the right of the 'Can View Who Read a Thread' header. Finally, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the 'Save' button.

    This will update your site with the changes you've made to the usergroup's permissions.

  • Promoting Articles from the Forums
    by Don Kuramura
    One of the innovative new features on vBulletin 4.0 Publishing Suite is the cross-publishing "Promote to Article" functionality. In the spirit of promoting content discovery, we wanted to create features that will allow content to flow between Forums, Blogs, and Articles. For example, there might be a really popular post in the forums, but unfortunately it is buried inside page 13 of a thread.
