vBulletin 5.2.2 Alpha 4 is now available.

We're pleased to announce the release of vBulletin 5.2.2 Alpha 4. Altogether over 150 issues have been resolved in vBulletin 5.2.2 Alpha 4. This is a maintenance release with numerous bug fixes and enhancements.

Minimum PHP Version: 5.4.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5

Recommended PHP Version: 5.6.0 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.6.0 or higher

[warning]It is recommended that this version of vBulletin should not be deployed on Production Servers at this time. Do so at your own risk.[/warning]

[h2]Email Language[/h2]
An issue where the email can be sent in the master language (English) or the language of the content creator has been resolved. This will allow you to customize your emails to fit your community within the Phrase Manager of the AdminCP. Users should now receive emails in their selected language or the language set as the site default depending on their personal settings.

[h2]ckEditor Update[/h2]
Significant work has been made to update ckEditor in the system to the latest series. Within this work, it is currently available to iOS devices. We would like to request that people with iOS devices test the ckEditor and rich text formatting so we can determine whether to go forward with this functionality or turn it off for iOS once again.

Editor Autogrow
We use functionality to autogrow the editor as you type. Currently this can cause the editor's toolbar to scroll off the screen. We have made changes to the functionality to keep the toolbar on the screen as much as possible. As you type, the editor will grow to the bottom of the screen and stop. If you scroll down, it will grow until it fills the screen. If you resize the screen, the editor will readjust to fit. If you would like an editor area larger than your screen, you can adjust the size manually but clicking on the triangle in the lower right corner and dragging it.

[h2]Button Updates[/h2]
As part of our ongoing Responsive work, we have refactored the display of buttons throughout the vBulletin system. The CSS has been converted to the BEM style of CSS used elsewhere in vBulletin. In addition to this, backgrounds of the buttons now use CSS Gradients for better control over colors. Button display should be consistent throughout the software now. The primary action button will always display as the right most button and have the appropriated highlighted background. In addition to this buttons are now easier to use on mobile devices where necessary they now appear larger and the same consistency is applied. On small screen devices like phones, the primary action button should be the top button in the display.

[h2]Database Cleanup[/h2]
If you upgraded from an older version of vBulletin, there are a number of tables that are considered deprecated and are no longer used in vBulletin 5 Connect. These tables may contain a considerable amount of data and increase the size of your database storage. In order to streamline this, we are working to remove these unused tables. The tables removed in this version are:
  • post
  • posthash
  • postlog
  • postparsed
  • postrelease
  • thread
  • threadrate
  • threadread
  • threadredirect
  • threadviews
  • skimlinks
Once these tables are deleted, the information will be gone forever. We suggest you make a backup of them if you feel you might need the data in the future for some other application.

PHP 5.4 Support

As of September 3rd, 2015, PHP 5.4.X was marked end of life by the PHP Group. The last version in the PHP 5.4 series is 5.4.45. Since this series is marked as End of Life it is no longer being developed, receiving bug fixes, or security patches. Due to this, we suggest that you upgrade to a minimum version of PHP 5.5.9. Using PHP 5.6.X is recommended for performance and security improvements.

At this time, we are not increasing the minimum required version of PHP. This will remain at PHP 5.4.0 for now. However, we may be required to change this requirement in the future.

vBulletin 5.2.1 Connect is available for download.

We're pleased to announce the release of vBulletin 5.2.1 Connect. All together over 190 issues have been resolved in vBulletin 5.2.1 Connect. There are some pretty significant changes with this release.

Minimum PHP Version: 5.4.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5

Recommended PHP Version: 5.6.0 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.6.0 or higher

[h2]PHP 7 Support[/h2]
vBulletin 5.2.1 has been updated to work with PHP 7. PHP 7 brings significant performance and other enhancements to the PHP platform.

Known Issue:
When running Apache 2.4.X and PHP 7.0.X under the Windows Family of OSes, the system can crash when processing templates with a large number of variables. An example of this would be the css_global.css template. Until we resolve this issue, it is not recommended to run 5.2.1 under PHP 7.0.X if you use Apache under Windows.

[h2]jQuery Update[/h2]
vBulletin 5.2.1 includes jQuery 2.1.4. This brings a number of enhancements to the jQuery library including performance enhancements. Due to this change, we are no longer able to support IE8. If you're on a version of Windows that cannot upgrade to IE10 or IE11, we suggest that you switch to Firefox, Chrome, or Opera. If you are using a modern browser and experience any JavaScript compatibility errors or general bugs, please post them in Jira.

Please note, this change may cause problems with any third-party or custom modifications that you have made, including Ad Modules. As such, please review all aftermarket JavaScript to make sure that it continues working or is appropriately updated.

[h2]Log in via Email[/h2]
We're happy to introduce the ability to log in via email address. This optional feature will allow your users to log in with their email address. This provides a small amount of security for your vBulletin site and end users as their log in credentials would never be shown on the screen. You can turn this feature on in the Admin Control Panel (AdminCP) under Settings -> Options -> General Settings.

There are three options in this setting:
  • Log in via Username Only
  • Log in via Email Only
  • Log in via Username or Email
Phrases on the log in screens and within error messages will adjust to reflect your setting.

What if I allow multiple users with the same email address?
Unfortunately, the system will not allow email log in if there are multiple users with the same email address. vBulletin wouldn't know which user to validate against. If you have multiple users with the same email address, an error message will display stating there are multiple users with the same email address. In order to enable this functionality, those users would need unique email addresses.

You can see a list of all emails with multiple users by clicking the link in the error message or going to Users -> Search For Users -> Look For Duplicate Emails. This will list the emails and how many users are sharing it. You can click on the links to drill down. Those users would need to update their email address.

You can turn off the ability for users to share an email in the AdminCP under Settings -> Options -> User Registration Options. Set the option 'Require Unique Email Addresses' to Yes. This is enabled by default so if you haven't changed the setting, you're good to go.

Creating Users in the AdminCP
Prior to the 5.2.1 beta, you could create new users in the AdminCP and not enter an email address. This functionality has been updated to require an email address.

[h2]Password Resets[/h2]
The password reset functionality has been streamlined. This will allow a better user experience and reduce the amount of emails sent by the system. In the new system, only a single email will be sent on an email change request. This will contain an embedded password. When the user clicks the link, they will just have to enter and confirm their new password. In order to prevent passwords from being guessed by unsavory users, new random passwords will be generated that are more secure. This will protect the customer. There is also brute force prevention on the request. A user can only request a limited number of resets before they are locked out for a short period of time.

[h2]Random Number Generation[/h2]
We are now relying on a cryptographically secure number generator where appropriate. One example would be the password reset above. This functionality is built into PHP7. If you are using a version of PHP before 7.0, then this will require that your server have a library installed to handle this. If there is no support for at least one of the libraries below, you will not be able to install or upgrade to vBulletin 5.2.1 until one is made available.
  • libsodium
  • /dev/urandom
  • mcrypt
  • windows system call using the PHP COM extension
  • openssl

[h2]Database Cleanup[/h2]
If you upgraded from an older version of vBulletin, there are a number of tables that are considered deprecated and are no longer used in vBulletin 5 Connect. These tables may contain a considerable amount of data and increase the size of your database storage. In order to streamline this, we are working to remove these unused tables. The tables removed in this version are:
  • pm
  • pmreceipt
  • pmtext
  • pmthrottle
  • nodevote
  • searchcore
  • searchcore_text
  • searchgroup
  • searchgroup_text
  • visitormessage
  • visitormessage_hash
Once these tables are deleted, the information will be gone forever. We suggest you make a backup of them if you feel you might need the data in the future for some other application.

vBulletin Cloud is switching to SSL



We are pleased to provide this advance notice that in the weeks ahead all vB Cloud forum sites will be migrated to SSL (Secure Sockets Layer/TLS 1.2).

This will help ensure the privacy of your site's users and prevent hackers from stealing user credentials such as passwords and authentication cookies. Your site's pages will now be served via HTTPS. This prevents so-called "man-in-the-middle" attacks, and is particularly valuable for users accessing your site via Wi-Fi. Your users will see the green padlock indicator in their browser, assuring them of the security of your site.

From your perspective another important benefit is that Google is now making an HTTPS connection a ranking signal; sites without a secure connection will rank lower in search results. vBulletin is handling the SSL certificate for your site and nothing is required from your side.

This upgrade is optional; if you wish to opt out of SSL for you site simply contact vBulletin's customer support anytime in the next couple weeks to opt out. Since the URLs of your site will change to include the "https" we will give you advance notice of the deployment of this upgrade several days ahead of time. If you have any questions on this, please contact us at 877-326-6444 or support@vbulletin.com.
