Product Development Skeleton

This is a "My Threads" module. Using the SiteBuilder, it is dragged down on the page just like any other module. It simply displays a list of links to all the threads the logged in user has started. There is no date options or other criteria to limit it, so it can be quite long if it's an active user. It's actually meant to be a vb5 development learning tool. It's more or less a skeleton of what makes up a vb5 extension. You can examine the xml file to see what's involved on the product side. I included a very simple php function to show how to access the database and poll info hence the "My Threads" functionality.

I hope this will be of some use for anyone who is struggling to learn how to build an extension for vb5. Maybe I'll build a tutorial to go along with it if there is enough interest.:up:

Nice. Just install our first vbulletin implementation (v5.2.2) and this will certainly give us a good leg up on learning mod development.

Thanks for your input buddy.

Would it be possible to use this to replicate the Articles module(or page) and use it for frontpage news?

This display only the posts from the current User. You better use a search widget to display something at front/index as an information widget. --> like Latest Topics

Steps to create this product from Vbulletin adminCP

Could you please provide us the steps to create this skeleton product from vBulletin admin panel like what code goes into plugins and what goes into template to build this product?

I have exported the xml file into my site and it's showing the link but I believe you have got this XML file by exporting the product from your site. So I wanted to understand how you have created the plugins and template in your site in order to build this skeleton product.
