  • vBulletin 5.3.3 Release Candidate is now available.

    vBulletin 5.3.3 Release Candidate is now available to all licensed customers. This is a pre-release or testing version of the software. We encourage you to install this software on your Test Servers. Pre-release versions of the software are not recommended for Production Servers.

    New Modules
    Trending Topics Module
    We've added a new module that shows trending topics. Trending topics are the topics receiving activity on your site. These topics have replies created over the last 96 hours (configurable) and are at least 4 hours old (configurable). Based on vBulletin 5's standard search module, this module can provide an easy way to provide your users with a look at your active content and encourage participation.

    Friend's Activity Module
    Another new module is the friend's activity module. Showing people what their friends are up to will encourage participation on the site. This is a great module to add to a custom page or to replace the Latest Topics module.

    Share to Social Networks
    In vBulletin 5.3.3, users can easily share content to Facebook and Twitter. Each Article, Topic, Blog Entry and Group Discussion can be shared to Facebook and Twitter through a simple click or tap while being viewed. This will allow your end users to share your content and encourage others to visit. Want to share to other social networks? The system is easily expandable to include more options using the vBulletin 5 Template Hook system.

    Push Notification Enhancements
    We have enhanced the Push Notification API to handle subscriptions, topic replies and reported posts. These will be added to an upcoming version of the Mobile Suite.
