This does not work with this modification:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=118551

It tries to put the "Forum Rules" link inside the User CP dropdown menu.
I've looked but I can't see any way to change this behaviour.

You tried to put:
"http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?do=cfrules"
or just:
"index.php?do=cfrules"
?

Try to play with this.

Um, neither ?

I haven't put anything into the navbar template - I just installed the Product as per the instructions.
I could put that link in to get the link on the navbar, but that would still give me the problem of having a link to it stuck inside the User CP dropdown menu.

Lost_Prophet,
I'm not sure I understand you fully. Send me a temp Admin account login info via PMs so I can check it, if you wish.

XtAzY,
vB Options are not part of ModCP so there is no way that SM can add/change the rules.
