  • Widgets


    vBulletin's CMS allows you to create smaller applications that fill in the Layout content. Where the Layout used organizes the Widgets and orders how they appear, it’s the individual Widgets that define what sorts of data are displayed. Widgets can be added, deleted, and edited through the Widget Manager in AdminCP.

    Creating A New Widget

    To create a new Widget, go to AdminCP > vBulletin CMS > Widgets:

    Clicking on Create New Widget will open the following page allowing you to choose from a pre-defined list of Widgets or to create your own (please see attached PDF file for a description of each of these widgets):

    From this screen, select one of the Widget Types then give your Widge...

  • Grid & Layout Manager

    Grid & Layout Manager

    The vBulletin CMS allows you to customise your layouts to suit your needs. These layouts can then be used in different Sections of your CMS to give each Section it's own look - couple this with it's own style (see this article on how to change these in your Sections) and you can really start to give your CMS a sense of individuality.

    Creating a New Grid

    To create a new layout, you first need to create a Grid - if you don't already have a Grid you wish to use. A Grid controls the general layout of the contents in a section using elements such as columns, sidebars, headers and footers. Once a Grid has been created, you can then customise what is shown within the Grid using the Layout Manager.

    Firstly, to create your new Grid go to:

    AdminCP > vBulletin CMS > Grid Manager > [Add New Grid]

  • Editing Sections

    Editing Sections

    There are a number of different elements of a Section in the CMS that you can edit, including (but not exclusively):

    - renaming
    - setting a specific style
    - changing the layout
    - changing what's viewed in a Section

    As opposed to creating a Section, these changes are made via the user visible, or 'front end', side of the CMS. For all of the following, you need to go to the Section page you wish to edit and click on the pencil icon beside the Section name:

    To rename a Section, simply remove the contents of the 'Name' field and enter the new title you wish to give it. Then, change the SEO URL Alias value to match the Section name and edit the Metadata Information box to reflect the changes also:

    Once you've updated these details, simply press the 'Save' button and your changes will be applied:

    When making changes to the CMS Sections, it's always advisable to Clear the CMS Cache and this should be done after each of the actions in this article. To do this, access AdminCP > vBulletin CMS and press the Clear CMS Cache Option:

    Each Section can have a different layout as defined in the CMS Layout Manager in AdminCP. To change the Layout, simply click on the 'Layout' dropdown on the Section Edit page:

    Each Section within the vBulletin CMS can have it's own style defined to it and the articles within that Section. Once you've created a style you wish to use for a specific Section, you need to assign that style to the Section itself. From the Section edit screen, simply change the dropdown to the style you wish to use for that section:

    After making either of these changes to the Section, click on 'Save' then clear the CMS Cache in AdminCP.

    Each Section can

  • Best Upgrade Procedure

    Best Upgrade Procedure

    The main purpose of this guide is to help seamlessly transition your community to a new system without it resulting in anger, confusion, and stress for both you and your users.

  • How to create a Fixed Style Template

    How to create a Fixed Style Template

    I wanted to do a short video tutorial on how to resize the general width of your vBulletin 4 Forum. Many vbulletin 4 themes that have come out are only available in “fluid style,” meaning it takes up the whole computer screen. I want to show you how to quickly make it a “fixed style” that can be resized to your needs. To get started, log in to your admin cp and click on “Styles and Templates" > "Style Manager"> and choose the style you want to edit. On the drop down field choose StyleVars. In the search field, just type in “doc.” Afterwards you should see doc_maxwidth under the “Common” category. Click on it. After cli...
