  • I am considering moving my UBB board

    I am considering moving my UBB board to vBulletin as we have apparently outgrown UBB's capabilities and I am seriously tired of losing good threads simply because UBB can not handle a large number of posts in any one forum.

    My question is this: We have a membership based system that allows users to have avatars and as custom status (contributor, etc) ONLY if they are a paid member.

    The UBB hack for this was Jimbo's Custom Rank / Status Hack that allowed me to update the status of each individual user thru the CP on a single form that you enter their user number and their 'status' (which included a URL link / HTML to their avatar icon).

    Is there anything like this available for vBulletin?

    Having this one feature available (as a built in or as a hack) is what is going to make or break my decision to migrate to vBulletin.

    Hello,

    Yes there is a built in usergroup setting "Can Upload Custom Avatars" which can be disabled for any usergroups you do not wish to be able to have avatars. Purchasing a subscription can automatically move users to a usergroup with permission to upload an avatar. You can also move them manually if you choose.
