    Q2. I'm trying to add a second administrator and they donít see all the options?

    Edit Picture Uploading Permissions settings

    Q10. How can I setup how many days / posts a user must have before they can get an avatar / profile picture / Personal Messages / be able to download attachments

    A10. This is now accomplished by usergroup promotion and primary / secondary usergroups. AdminCP > Usergroups > Promotions

    Q11. How Can I change my postbit to look like vBulletin 2

    A11. ACP > vBulletin Options > Style & Language Settings * > Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template > YES
    *(RC2 and lower, it is in Thread Display Options (showthread) )

    Q12. How can I store CSS as files?

    A12. AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Style & Language Settings
    Store CSS Stylesheets as Files?
    Set to yes, make sure to chmod the clientscript/vbulletin_css folder to 777 before saving this option.

    Q13. Help! I canít login to the ACP and I canít see the link to it any more either!

    A13. Steps to recover

    1. You need to go into phpmyadmin and change your usergroup id to 6

    2. In config.php find

    $superadministrators = '';

    You need to add your userid to this value so it looks like this

    $superadministrators = '1';

    If you installed the board from scratch your userid 1.

    Save your config.php

    3. Point your browser to mysite.com/forum/admincp/adminpermissions.php?do=modify

    Click on all yes and hit save

    Hopefully this will help some of the common questions from continuing to appear!

    Users not getting confirmation email

    We've had several people sign up, but none has confirmed.

    So I assume none are getting the confirmation email. How can I be sure VB is sending it?

    There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

    1. http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/main/forums_intro

    2. Yes, too many forums can affect performance. How many do you plan to have?

    3. The postbit template is the template that contains the posts (for instance this post.) Here's a pic:

    I suggest starting with the Online Documentation.

    Sorry if these questions are elementary but I've tried to purchase a 'VBulletin for Dummies' or equivalent, some easy, step by step guide, without success...

    1) What is a 'category' as opposed to a 'forum' and what is its chief plus points, ie.what is it mainly used for?

    2) Does adding many forums (or possibly categories) significantly affect site performance, or is that mainly down to number of posts and members going online?

    3) I've seen the 'postbit' mentioned and it seems to be important but have no idea what this means. Can anyone tell me? (Is there a simply worded glossary of terms somewhere?)

    I have my site up and running but really WOULD like to get more proficient in VBulletin to constantly improve it. Are there any helpful "dummies"-style books out there AT ALL? (My local major bookshop could find not a SINGLE reference to Vbulletin on their computer. (Waterstones here in the UK.)

    Anyone...? Thank you.

    Gender Markers

    Sorry if this has already been asked but is it possible to place M or F gender markers somewhere around the avatar and making it a mandatory selection in the profiles? If so how??

    Thx
