Everything you need in vBulletin 4
Lets be honest. Not everyone wants to migrate their large forums over to vBulletin 5. There are too many uncertainties.Will my SEO ranking stay the same? Are the same plugins available. What about all my custom configurations and themes? Not only that, there is so many plugins in vBulletin 4 that allow me to virtually create anything at the moment, why does it make sense to move to vBulletin 5. And thus, this plugin was born, essentially creating a modern vBulletin 4 platform on top of the existing infrastructure.

Faster page loading for vBulletin 4
With a new vBulletin “ForumHome” remastered, the pages render faster, and allow for a more pleasant browsing experience for everyone.

Ajax Loading for vBulletin 4
No more clicking to navigate to view more content. vBSocial Modern Forums loads new content on the fly without having to navigate across boards.

Drag and Drop Image Uploading for vBulletin 4
Easily drag multiple images onto our new editor so your users can add attachments faster, the modern way.

Better content sorting for vBulletin 4
Because the data is now sorted in a tabular format, you can sort all your threads by popularity, rating, views, activity and much more with a simple click.

Works with existing installations of vBulletin 4
It takes 2 minutes to install this plugin, and 2 minutes to quickly transform to your new modern forum. Not everyone wants to move to vBulletin 5.

More interactive and social
Content gets buried on your vBulletin 4 site. With the new system, there are many new ways of discovering new and old content.

Works perfectly with vBSocial Social Network/Notifications
Our plugin has been tested to work with our main plugin vBSocial Social Network.

Create Threads from anywhere!
You can now create threads from the forum home page, as well as the category pages. This allows for more content creation, as content is king.

Color coding of categories
Easily configure your forum categories to look a certain color. By default, we automatically color code them for you based on your themes colors.

The future of forums is here.

Cool, I see them now, is everything listed in the first post in the Lite version? If so what benefits are in the PRO?

This is very interesting. A couple of questions:

- Does it include any of your other products (like the notifications)?
- Will existing mods like Dragonbyte mentions and notifications and stuff still work?
- More importantly - how does infinite scrolling affect page views, ad revenue, and SEO? Wouldn't that reduce page views and ad revenue?
- How does deployment per style work? You say it works for light and dark styles.
- Is there a way to keep the old system as default and run this as an option for selected users/admins to try it out?
- Does it have any enhanced social media integration?
- Are new replies AJAX like Facebook?

I'm sure more questions will occur, but it's interestin for sure!

1. It is tied together with all our VIP or single purchase. I can't discuss premium or pricing here.
2. Untested
3. It decreases "page clicks" when users need to find a new post, but increases activity as this makes it easier to find and navigate the site.
4. Its' different per style. Its' coded to work with stylevars, so it adapts to each and every style. At the moment, you can keep the default for guests, and modern forums for regular members. Also regular members can turn it off from usercp.
5. Our other stuff does this
6. We did not modify new replies. We added a new thread creator. Which can popup from forumhome/forum categories etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions :)

I am intrigued, for sure. It's such a big change, though, that I really feel I need to be able to control it by user group, starting with just the admins and then some select members before opening it to everyone.

This plugin is very new, and there is still alot insights to learn from it. We see it being useful for many sorts of different types of websites, that are focused on driving more activity, and visibility to all the content on their forums.

Yes, I understand your goal with it. As I mentioned, my concern is user reaction to big changes, and having the ability to test it with select user groups, and then roll it out more slowly would be very attractive.

Have you any stats to show that it does drive more activity? Are your own forums busier post-upgrade to this?

Your forum http://vbsocial.com/forum/ doesn't load on a kindle fire (firefox).
