I tried to search the forum to see if nobody else has posted this.

The reason for me basically wanting this on this forum is so I can click install so it will be in my "Show installed Hacks" list (if I ever upgrade or things like that I have a nice list of what I need to reinstall, or else I might forget).

All credits Steve Machol from vBulletin.com since he gave me the answer on the following question:

Hello vBulletin Support.

Am I allowed to remove the vBulletin version on the bottom of my page?

I wish to do this in an attempt to maybe shake off people who are out to exploit forums, if they might not see my forum version they might not even bother trying.

Sincerely
Fred
Steve Machol answered:

Yes, you can remove the version number. To do this, edit the 'powered_by_vbulletin' phrase and replace this:

Powered by: vBulletin Version {1}<br />Copyright &copy;2000 - {2}, Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd.

With this:

Powered by: vBulletin <br />Copyright &copy;2000 - {2}, Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd.

Note: To edit a phrase, place the new phrase in the available language text boxes.

Also please see this thread on how to make your vBulletin more secure:

All the best,

You should also remember to do this to the version in the meta data as well, you know, the meta generator tag thing.
