Remove AJAX functions

What is this mod all about?
One of the things that bugs me a bit about vBulletin 5 is that our ad revenue dropped heavily due to pages refreshing with AJAX. Next to that, a lot of users reported to us that the AJAX functions cause a lot of different issues on the user-end. We decided to write a simple plugin to control AJAX functionality.


We're currently looking into more options as vBulletin is filled with AJAX requests. We'll update this plugin with any additional options when we find one. Please feel free to do a request by PM here on vBulletin.org.

About Duckways
We're a company with a team of developers who have been working a lot on a vBulletin 4 system for two of our customers. The largest one with over 200,000 users and 4 million posts.
This one migrated to vBulletin 5 recently and we've faced quite some issues in vBulletin 5 which we'll fix by writing custom modifications. Some of those, which are worth sharing, will be added here on vBulletin.org. If you're missing a feature or add-on, please feel free to contact us.

How to install:

- Download the XML file below
- AdminCP-> Product Management-> Add/Import product: Import the XML file.
- Go to settings and disable functions based on your preference
