vBulletin 5.3.3 Alpha is now available.

vBulletin 5.3.3 Alpha is now available to all licensed customers. This is a pre-release or testing version of the software. We encourage you to install this software on your Test Servers. Pre-release versions of the software are not recommended for Production Servers.

New Modules
Trending Topics Module
We've added a new module that shows 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.

Friend's Activity Module
Another new module is the friend's activity module. Showing people 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.

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.

Patch Released for vBulletin 5.3.0, 5.3.1, and 5.3.2

An issue has been found in the Site Builder functionality of vBulletin 5.3.0 and higher. On a few occasions, this issue has caused the system to delete the modules off every page for your installation. Proper access to Site Builder is required to trigger the issue so there are no security concerns with this issue. We are releasing this patch to prevent the issue from happening in the future.

It is recommended that you apply this patch as soon as possible. To do so, download the patch for your version from and upload the files to your server. Overwrite the existing files with the new ones. If you have not upgraded to 5.3.2 yet, it is recommended that you do a full upgrade to vBulletin 5.3.2 Patch Level 1.

Patches Released:
vBulletin 5.3.2 Patch Level 1
vBulletin 5.3.1 Patch Level 1
vBulletin 5.3.0 Patch Level 1

If you are using an older version of vBulletin, you should upgrade to vBulletin 5.3.2 Patch Level 1 as soon as possible.

vBulletin 5.3.2 Connect is now available.

vBulletin 5.3.2 is now available to all licensed customers. It is recommended that all customers upgrade as soon as possible.

Inline Log In
Imagine that you've logged in but forgot to check the Remember Me button. You find an interesting topic and type a long reply. When you're finished, you submit the post and get an error that says you don't have permission to perform that action. What happened is your session timed out while typing. To resolve this, we have added Inline Log In. Now instead of receiving a confusing message, you will receive a dialog box asking for your password in order to properly process the new post.

Push Notification Framework
We have added the framework for push notifications to vBulletin 5. This framework will currently support Private Message notifications being pushed to the Mobile Suite. As demand warrants, we will add different types of content notifications. In order to use Push Notifications, you will need to register your site with Google's Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) system. Site Administrators can register their sites here:

More information on Push Notifications will be released simultaneously with the next version of the Mobile Suite.

User Tokens
Once the Mobile Suite is updated to support Push Notifications, your users will need to update the App and allow it to receive notifications via the system settings. This will create a token to allow them push notifications. The token will remain valid as long as they remain logged into the App. If the user is inactive for more than 7 days, the system will stop sending them push notifications.

Other EnhancementsOrphaned Page Templates can be deleted from within the Page Manager in Site Builder.
Calendars should respect the start of the week option from user profiles.
The Date and Time selection widget should reflect the options specified in the Language settings.
Avatar upload from mobile devices should respect image orientation properly.
Most search modules support the display of the originating channel.
Administrators can disable the automatic sending of birthday emails.
The initial load of the Admin Control Panel should be faster when you have "Control Panel Quick Statistics" turned on.

Is your site using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
Is your site running on SSL, also referred to as HTTPS? The Secure Socket Layer provides a security standard that creates an encrypted link between your site and the user's browser making sure everything transmitted remains private and is not changed midstream. This is the preferred method of accessing a website in 2017 and initially provides a small boost to search engine rankings. vBulletin 5 Connect has full support for SSL. If you are not using SSL at this time check out our article on converting your site to use HTTPS:

All vBulletin Cloud sites are configured to use SSL as a free add-on feature.

System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.5.0

Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher
Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+

Current Version Support Schedule:Active Version - 5.3.1
Security Patch - 5.3.0
Security Patch - 5.2.6
No Patch Release - 5.2.5 or earlier.
