***Attention: This product is currently UNSUPPORTED***

We would like to release an Alpha version of the vBulletin4 Cerberus product. This product allows you to create one vBulletin4 installation which can power unlimited number of domains and sub-domains; while allowing to customize each domain differently to make it look like different sites or sections. Domains will have one universal admincp and user login information.

***Example***
www.supercoolautoforum.com - main site, all forums
ferarri.supercoolautoforum.com - custom style and forums, same login
bmw.supercoolautoforum.com- custom style and forums, same login
honda.supercoolautoforum.com - custom style and forums, same login
supercoolmotorcycleforum.com - custom style and forums, same login

*** Why are you releasing this, I want more features?! ***

This is a very simple product; we believe that the basic functionality provided in this product will satisfy a lot of communities - and since the product is simple - it will be easy to extend it and modify it to work for your custom community requirements.

Overview of Current Features:
  • One shared installation of vBulletin 4
  • One shared user account on all domains
  • Custom Style for each domain
  • Custom Forum listing for each domain
Known Issues:
  • CMS and Blogs are currently not configured to have special domain-specific categories and sections. CMS is shared across all sites although the appearance will be different for each domain.

This will work with vBSEO - but requires an individual vbseo license per each custom domain to be legal and function correctly.

nice addon!

/me tags it



About the vbseo, can it be enabled or disabled on the forums?
Say I have one site with vbseo, I sync a new forum up that doesn't have vbseo, will the product still work?


thx

Will it be configured eventually so domains can have their own CMS page? Can posts from either domain be promoted to the CMS?

If I have for example Car Make A on one forum and Car Make B on the other is there anything I can do to have the CMS setup to show either A or B but not both, or at least let the user choose at this time?

Also, just want to make sure, there are shared forums across domains as well, correct?

I'm a bit of a novice, which is probably why I can't get this to work. But do the different sites need to use the same config file? Is it possible to get some documention?

See hacks like this would be awesome, but it is beyond stupid to have a valid vbulletin license for each subdomain like sub.maindomain.com. It is still on the maindomain.com domain, so there should be no need for licenses for each subdomain.
