vBulletin 5.3.4 Connect is now available.

vBulletin 5.3.4 Connect packs a lot of changes in a smaller package. In addition to resolving many issues reported by customers, the following enhancements have been added to the software.

A Smaller Download Package
A number of unused font files have been removed from the download package. This change removes approximately 10 Megabytes from the size of the download package. This will save time in uploading the new version as well as storage space on the server if you delete the unused files. The easiest way to delete the unused font files is to delete the [dfn='This is the directory where you installed vBulletin. Example: /public_html/forums']vbulletin_root[/dfn]/fonts directory on your server before uploading the new version.

Site BuilderThe Site Builder menu has been reworked and separated from the User Menu. Now it will appear on top of the entire page. This will allow the menu to be used at more resolutions without wrapping. When one of the Site Builder panels is active on the screen, the User Menu will no longer be shown on the screen.
[ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"center","data-size":"custom","height":"44","title&quot ;:"sitebuilder.png","width":"1045","data-attachmentid":4381353}[/ATTACH]

dministrators can now set permissions to restrict the viewing of modules to specific usergroups. This is handled in the configuration of individual modules. [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"center","data-size":"full","title":"module_permissions.png" ,"data-attachmentid":4381354}[/ATTACH]



EventsGoogle Map for event locations. When entering a landmark name or address as the event location the system will give the option to embed a Google Map for users. Maps can be previewed before saving the event. This feature requires an API Key from Google. (https://developers.google.com/maps/d...pt/get-api-key)

[ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"center","data-size":"full","title":"Screenshot_3.png",&quot ;data-attachmentid":4381356}[/ATTACH]Events that span the end of the month will properly appear in the Calendar module.
ResponsiveThe Subscription Page has been updated so that it works properly in Responsive.
Sorting on the Member's List is now easier to use within Responsive.
PerformanceUpdated the handling of the searchlog table in order to control its size. This will help prevent performance issues with building pages and creating new content.
Added an external file that allows the running of Scheduled Tasks via the server's cron/scheduled task system. This will allow separation of these tasks from the web server.
SearchSearch has been refactored so that results will reflect recent activity more accurately.
The name of the channel that contains the search result has been added to search result pages.
SphinxSearch -Due to field changes, 5.3.4 will require that sphinx users update their sphinx config and rebuild their indexes.

PHP Compatibility
The software has been updated to be compatible with PHP 7.2.0. If you are planning on using the PHP 7.2.X branch, you must use PHP 7.2.0 RC5 or higher to mitigate a bug with PHP's opcache library.

Mobile Suite
vBulletin can now send Event Lists and Calendar information to the Mobile Apps. Mobile Apps will support this in the next version of the Mobile Suite.

Security
We've added several lines to the .htaccess file to prevent specific types of files from being accessed directly. This is based on file name matching and includes .bak, .zip, .sql, .gz, .tar and others. If you have modified your .htaccess file, you can compare your file with the new file to add the changes manually. Please note, this doesn't affect attachments stored in the file system. We access these files through the vBulletin system and they are not accessed directly. If your Attachment directory is within your web_root directory, then you should block web access via the server.

OtherOpen Graph meta tags have been added.
Resolved an issue that prevented moving posts to an existing topic.
Resolved an issue that prevented access to the install/upgrade system if the database credentials were incorrect.
Debug information viewed by guest users will no longer be cached.
Several obsolete settings have been removed from the AdminCP.
Updated RSS Imports in order to provide better support of some URL formats.
The dimensions for uploading images have been updated in the /core/includes/config.php file.
Merging users with votes on polls will retain the destination user's votes.

vBulletin 5.3.3 Connect is now available!

vBulletin 5.3.3 Connect is now available to all licensed customers. It is encouraged that all customers upgrade as soon as possible.

New Search Modules
We've added two new search modules to help provide you with the ways to make content easier to find. Additionally, all search modules can be found in the new Content category while editing pages within Site Builder.

Trending Topics Module
The first module will show Trending Topics. Trending topics are the topics receiving activity on your site. These topics have replies created over the last 96 hours (configurable) and are at least 4 hours old (configurable). Based on vBulletin 5's standard search module, this module can provide an easy way to provide your users with a look at your active content and encourage participation.

Visit your AdminCP to change the lookback and time delay settings for Trending Topics. Go to Settings -> Options -> Message Searching Options. The new options will be at the bottom of the page. For other settings, edit the module where it is located on the page. Once you have changed this, you will need to until the Scheduled Tasks system rebuilds the Trending Topics index. This will happen once per hour on active sites. If you want to update them immediately, you can manually run the Scheduled Task in the Task Manager.

You can view the output of this module here: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/trending

Friend's Activity Module
The second search module is the Friend's Activity module. Showing users what their friends are up to will encourage participation on the site. This is a great module to add to a custom page or to replace the Latest Topics module. Users can increase their friend's list by visiting the profiles of their favorite people and subscribing to them.

Share to Social Networks
In vBulletin 5.3.3, users can easily share content to Facebook and Twitter. Each Article, Topic, Blog Entry and Group Discussion can be shared to Facebook and Twitter through a simple click or tap while being viewed. This will allow your end users to share your content and encourage others to visit. Want to share to other social networks? The system is easily expandable to include more options using the vBulletin 5 Template Hook system.

Push Notification Enhancements
We have enhanced the Push Notification API to handle subscriptions, topic replies and reported posts. These will be added to an upcoming version of the Mobile Suite.

Sphinx Search
Due to new search fields, you must rebuild your Sphinx Search index. To do this:Delete your current index
Replace the sphinx files with those in the vBulletin 5.3.3 package
Rebuild your index following the instructions for your OS in the do_not_upload folder of your vBulletin package.

Other IssuesMember's List has been updated to work better with Responsive.
The default filter of a module can be set to events.
Menus now behave properly on iOS.
Edited posts are now properly checked against anti-spam tools.
Site Builder should work on Touch-Enabled Devices such as Tablets.
Error Handling has been improved in several areas of the application.
