The instructions say to change the paths to complete paths. Try changing the paths to that. *crosses fingers*

I wish it were that simple.... I tried that already first off and had the same problem. Somehow, just on certain blocks and the news is where it's doubling the url's. Did ya go to my site and have a look at exactly what I mean?

Ok, I have it fixed or well on the way. In my post icons image paths I had the full path. When I changed them to simply /images/icons/yadayada.gif then all works fine......

This thread is the main place for support. Core Forums was used to provide additional support, but due to a decrease in the amount of time I have to dedicate to this I've redirected all support back here to vBulletin.org.

Yes and no. I have worked out a way to integrate the normal home page into the vBIndex portal, but when I do it stops the news function from working.

Everything else works OK, just there is no news. So I have drawn a blank for the moment. If anyone else has tried this and got it working your assistance would be most appreciated.

Sorry chet.

Newbie here with a silly question

I can see the option for adding a custom block. Could some one point me in the right direction of where i would go to add my content to the custom block.

Thanks in advance.

I just upgraded my site from vB2.3.2/vBindex 2.1/shout to vB3.0.3/vbindex 3.0RC5 while moving to a new dedicated server. Everything seems to work except I don't see a shout box. I'm I suppose to load shout separate?

Can someone tell me how to get my logo centered on the vbindex page...? It is centered on my forum page but not the vBi page.

TIA

(I searched thru the thread and saw this question asked, but not answered... sorry if I missed the answers... 132 pages LOL)

And thanks for a great hack!

AH.... disregard my question... found the answer!
