vBulletin 5.2.6 Alpha 5 is now available.

vBulletin 5.2.6 Alpha is now available to all vBulletin 5 Download customers with an active license. This version contains fixes and updates to over 180 issues in the software.

Events
The Event Content type has been added to the vBulletin system. You can create events in any channel and control where they are created using the new "Can create event" permission. Events are the successor to the vBulletin 4.X Calendar feature. 5.2.6 includes our first iteration of Events so we are looking forward to your feedback.

Users would create a new event just like any other content. Clicking the New Topic button allows you to create the event. Simply click on the Event icon in the list. You will be asked for a title, some text about the event, start time, end time and location. Once an event is created users will be able to reply and comment on it, subscribe to the event and so forth. Events are automatically searchable as they are part of vBulletin 5's standard content system.

As the Site Administrator, you can place the Upcoming Events module on any page to allow users to find events from your site.

New Permission
"Can Create Events" is new permission has been added to the system. This can be configured in the Usergroup Manager and under Channel Permissions. This will allow Administrators to control who can create events and where they can be created. You can disable Event creation completely by setting this to No for all usergroups.

More information on Events is coming soon.

New Modules
Two new modules have been added in 5.2.6.
Channel Description Module - Previous versions allowed you to show the forum description on a page. This has been implemented in vBulletin 5 as the Channel Description Module. Placing this module on any channel page will show the description at the module's location.
Upcoming Events Module - This is a new type of search module to show your upcoming events. It is designed with infinite scrolling and will automatically load more events as you scroll to the bottom of the module. This can be placed on any page where you want to show your events.

RTL Support
A majority of outstanding RTL issues have been resolved throughout the software. We would like to extend special thanks to our beta testers for their help with this. These fixes enable us to provide better support as we continue to work towards full UTF-8 compliance throughout vBulletin. If you use an RTL language and continue to have problems, please make sure that you are using one of the provided styles without template or CSS edits while testing.

Options
Several obsolete options have been removed from the AdminCP. Either the functionality controlled by these options no longer exists or there better ways to control them. These are:"Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template"

vBulletin 5.2.5 Connect is now available.

vBulletin 5.2.5 Connect is now available to all vBulletin 5 Download customers with an active license. This version contains fixes and updates to over 130 issues in the software.

System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.5.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5

Recommended PHP Version: 7.0.9 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher
Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+

Page Manager
A Page Manager has been added to SiteBuilder. This first iteration is pretty basic. It lists all custom pages and channels and links to them for editing or deletion. This will be handy if you forget the route to a page or simply want to see what you or other administrators have created. Please give your feedback on this new feature so we can make it more robust in the future. This tool can be accessed by choosing the "Pages" option in SiteBuilder.

SiteBuilder Menu
Along with adding the Page Manager, a few other changes have been made to the SiteBuilder Menu. The Channel Manager link has been shortened to Channels. The Styles tool has been moved to the left most position for better flow in the menu.

vBulletin Messenger
Enhancements have been made to the AJAX polling in vBulletin Messenger to reduce server load. Along with this, there is a new option to allow Administrators to control how many Messenger chats appear on the Messages Dropdown menu. Messenger menus have also been refactored to use the vBulletin Responsive Menu component introduced in vBulletin 5.2.4.

Image Uploads
In order to handle an increasing number of metadata tags added to images by smartphones and cameras, image handling has been reworked. Most images that fail our internet security checks will be rewritten before storage. These images will have the majority of their metadata stripped upon saving. This allows us to prevent executable code from being embedded in images will providing support for a larger number of devices.

CaveatsIf your site needs support for Animated GIF images that are uploaded, you must use the ImageMagick library under Settings -> Options -> Image Settings. This will require that the ImageMagick executable is installed on your server and the exec() function is not blocked in your PHP settings. Contact your host if you need help setting up ImageMagick.
JPEG is a "Lossy" format. Converting JPEG images will result in a slight quality loss. This is currently unavoidable.

UTF-8 Support
New installations will use UTF8 character sets in the database when supported. If for some reason you cannot use UTF-8 in your database you can set the character set explicitly in /core/includes/config.php with this line:



Note: Code Cannot Be Viewed on the Portal



This allows us to move forwards on supporting UTF-8 on all vBulletin installations. We're working behind the scenes to make this possible given the wide range of character sets in use today. You should make sure that you have both the mbstring and iconv libraries installed in PHP if you need to support non-Latin languages.

Code Cleanup
A number of obsolete functions have been removed from the system. These are mainly in functions.php:

split_string
to_ascii
fetch_soft_break_string
construct_window_page_nav
fetch_lastposter_userinfo
vbmail
fetch_profilefield_display
vbheaders_sent
exec_switch_bg
fetch_start_end_total_array
print_standard_error
add_query
convert_int_to_utf8
convert_unicode_char_to_charset

We have also removed the classes associated with Legacy User handling. Javascript and CSS have also been updated to remove obsolete code and class references.

If you have third-party add-ons that use any obsolete code, you will need to contact the developers of those products for updates.
