vBulletin Connect 5.6.9 Beta 1 Available for Download.

A preview release of vBulletin 5.6.9 is now available for download.


Front End Changes


Copy and Paste Image Uploads


Users can now use Copy and Paste to upload images into their posts. Users should be warned that image sizes may not be what they expected on paste. They can control the image size by hovering over an image and using the drag tool in the lower right corner. Users can also double-click (double-tap on a touch device) an image to bring up the properties window to change the size.


Note: Firefox does not allow pasting multiple images at one time. Firefox also does not support the copy and paste of WebP images.

WebP Image Support


Users will be able to upload images in the WebP format. These images are typically smaller than their PNG and JPEG counterparts. WebP images can also support background transparency. You can read about WebP on Google's Developer Site.


Additional Issues

Added an option to filter for topics flagged as Answered on the Advanced Search page.
Removed the See More link on Article previews. This link was causing an issue when the end-user had permission to view the Article Preview but did not have permission to view the Article.
Name Cards have been updated to remove hover effects on the buttons. The change allows them to work better with touch devices that do not support hover.
Hashtags will not be parsed in text posted between [code]...[/code] tags.
New lines will be maintained in text pasted between [code]...[/code] tags.
The Content Slider module will now use the thumbnails from link/video content as the background.

Back End / AdminCP Changes


HTML Support for Outgoing Emails.


vBulletin now uses HTML formatting for Outgoing Emails. All Email Body Text phrases have been updated and will appear the same after the change. However, if you have custom translations for these phrases, you will need to update them manually. Otherwise, your outgoing emails will lose their formatting. W3Schools has a free HTML course so that you can learn basic HTML if you need to. Do not include doctype, html, or body tags in your outgoing emails.


Contact Us Email Address Updated


The Contact Us form no longer uses the end-user's email address for the sender field. It will use the Webmaster Email stated within your site's options.


Email Diagnostic Updated


The Email Diagnostic tool was updated to show the complete SMTP Error message if it occurs. This will make diagnosing outgoing email issues easier.


Additional AdminCP Issues

Combined the Image Settings and Message Attachment Options setting groups into a group called Attachment Options.
Added column headers to the Style Manager.
Hidden Themes shown in Debug Mode can no longer be set as Active in the Style Manager.
Settings can be backed up and restored outside of Debug Mode.
A quick search for Recently Banned Users has been added to the User Manager.

vBulletin Connect 5.6.8 is now available for download.

vBulletin Connect 5.6.8 is now available for download customers. vBulletin Cloud customers will be automatically upgraded soon.

Front End Changes


Embedded Media


vBulletin now recognizes audio and video media files that have been attached to a post. Videos can be inserted inline after uploading using the [video] bbcode. Audio attachments will display audio controls within the Attached Files box at the bottom of the post. End users will be able to use standard playback controls to view videos and listen to uploaded audio.


Additional Issues

Improved parsing on URLs embedded within the editor. This will prevent more instances of automatic parsing within other BBCodes.
Video thumbnails will now show at the same size as the video. This prevents the "resizing" of videos when played.
Resolved an issue where the Breadcrumb wrapper may render at an improper width.

Back End / AdminCP Changes


Handling Media File Types


Media files will be large so you will need to configure your site to accept them. They will range in size from a few megabytes to multiple gigabytes depending on the content. It is recommended that attachments are stored in the file system and not the database.


Media files come in several different formats. The base format that the end-user sees is called a container. Within this container, there will be multiple files/streams of audio and/or video. Whether individual streams can be played on the end-user's computer will depend on the Audio and Video codecs they have installed and the browser they are using.


The most commonly accepted containers are MP3 for Audio and MP4 for Video. These may not be the most efficient file types for this content though. These links provide more information about media file formats: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...ats/Containers


Media Formats For vBulletin


Audio and Video formats are not defined in a default installation. If you wish to use these file types, you will need to configure them in the AdminCP under Attachments -> Attachment Storage Types.


While there are many different audio and video formats, these formats are recommended for the widest acceptance across devices.


ExtensionTypeContent Header.mp3AudioContent-type: audio/mpeg.mp4VideoContent-type: video/mp4.webmVideoContent-type: video/webmHowever, vBulletin will automatically detect if an attachment is audio or video automatically based on the content-type header that you assign.


If you need to convert a video from one format to another, it is recommended that you use the open-source tool Handbrake. This software is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.


Updated Database Tools


The utf8convert.phar script has been updated to handle multibyte character sets (e.g. Arabic) better. The varbinary fields used to convert the data have been made larger to account for larger character sizes being stored.


Additional Issues

Continued code cleanup for newer versions of PHP and removing obsolete code.
Added permission to allow Guest Users to see "Who Liked" a post.
When parsing text on saving, mbstring functions now have priority over iconv functions. This prevents an issue that can cause slow processing on new posts.
Resolved an issue that could cause a fatal error when creating a new channel with a custom style assigned.
Removed the obsolete node library function fetchAttachInfo
Fixed mbstring charset issues with cp1256
Added PHP Hooks for posting comments.
