    vBulletin Blog 1.0.2 Released

    vBulletin Blog 1.0.2 is a maintenance release to our second vBulletin add-on. It contains a number of bug fixes since the release of 1.0.1.

    Some of the bugs fixed include:
    • 23307 - People on a user's ignore list may still view their blog when blocked.
    • 23274 - Default permissions & privacy options not being applied properly.
    • 23323 - Featured entry ignores the viewing user's profile picture permissions, allowing it to always be seen.
    • 23335 - Search results counter is wrong.
    • 23306 - Cron system is accessing database tables that do not exist.
    See a full list of bugs fixed between Blog 1.0.1 and 1.0.2

    Upgrading/Installing the Blog

    Upgrades and new installations of the Blog follow the same process: upload the files and import the XML. After this, you will see a message that your upgrade or install was successful. For full instructions on how to upgrade or install, please see this manual entry.

    About the Blog

    vBulletin Blog is a fully featured blogging add-on that enables community members to create their very own online blogs within vBulletin. Giving members a place to post thoughts, ideas and musings will keep users returning to the community again and again, and advanced administration features allow forum owners and moderators to keep control and integrate Blog into vBulletin’s existing look and feel.

    vBulletin Blog makes it simple for community members to create their own space within the community. Getting started is as simple as posting the first message (using the same familiar vBulletin editor). There is no lengthy setup process - blog owners are free to personalise their blog at any time by defining a title and a description that will appear at the top of every blog post.Note that to install the Blog, you must be running vBulletin 3.6.8 or newer!

    Pricing and Ordering

    The Blog is priced at $50, which includes one year of software updates. The renewal fee for an additional year of updates is $20. Existing customers with active vBulletin licenses can purchase the Blog immediately via the members' area.

    vBulletin 3.6.8 or newer is required to install the Blog.

    Templates with Mandatory Changes Since Blog 1.0.1

    A mandatory change indicates that functionality will be explicitly broken if you do not apply this template change. This could be as small as a broken image or as significant as data loss. Always make sure these changes are applied as soon as possible.

    Remember, you only need to manually apply changes to templates that you have explicitly customized. Use the "Find Updated Templates" option and cross reference with this list (if you are upgrading from Blog 1.0.1). We recommend reverting your customized templates and recustomizing them to guarantee you have all the necessary changes.


    Templates with Non-Mandatory Changes Since Blog 1.0.1

    Your Blog installation will not be broken if you don't apply these changes, but small bugs may be fixed and new functionality may be available by applying these changes. We recommend you apply these changes in the same way that you apply mandatory changes.
