Introducing Forum Runner for the iPhone/iPad/Android vBulletin!

Forum Runner now supports ANDROID Devices!!!

Forum Runner now supports vBulletin 4.0/4.1 CMS!!

http://www.forumrunner.com

What is Forum Runner?

Forum Runner is a vBulletin mod that allows your users to browse your forum using a native Android/iPhone/iPad client. This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

Forum Runner now supports the iPad natively! Download the Forum Runner app once and support both iPhone and iPad versions in one universal app!

iOS 4 multitasking on the iPhone is fully supported by Forum Runner.

Forum Runner is FREE for forum owners to install, and takes less than 5 minutes. The client for the iPhone/iPad/Android costs 1.99$ which is LESS THAN THE COMPETITORS, and has more features. Please see the list below for full information on Forum Runner's features.

Forum Runner inherits all the security built into vBulletin, so users running Forum Runner will only be able to see the same forums and threads as they could using a regular browser.

Forum Runner Feature List
  • Native Android/iPad/iPhone support
  • vBulletin 4.0 CMS support
  • iOS 4 multitasking support
  • Browse your favorite forums in an easy-to-use-interface with multiple notification types (private message, subscription, etc)
  • Fully customizable home screen with your favorite forums
  • FREE PUSH NOTIFICATION SUPPORT : Get private message and subscribed thread updates from your favorite forums in the background!
  • Poll updates (private messages/subscriptions) from favorites on home screen - shows you a summary of which forums you have new messages or subscriptions on!
  • Graphical display of polls - view results and vote on polls
  • Moderation tools for your moderators/admins (close/open thread, stick/unstick thread, move thread, delete posts, etc)
  • Image attachment thumbnail and full size viewing from threads
  • View a thread's image attachments in one convenient screen (much like the native iPhone "Photo" app)
  • Save thread images to your iPhone/iPod touch library
  • Fully searchable forums!
  • Multi-quote support
  • View embedded links without leaving the app, including YouTube videos
  • Supports portrait AND landscape mode
  • Full posting options (quote posts, start new thread, etc)
  • Attach unlimited photos from your library (or take a photo from the camera and attach it)
  • Full support for private messages and private message folders
  • Full support for thread subscriptions - track your favorite threads and be updated via push when they have new posts!
Forum Runner currently supports vBulletin 3.6.x, 3.7.x, 3.8.x and 4.0.x. We are adding support for other mobile phones as well as forum software.

There is a Free version available in the iTunes App Store and Google Market as well which allows your users to try out Forum Runner before making a decision to buy it. It has all the features of the full version except that it does not have the ability to post threads and a few other differences which are outlined on http://www.forumrunner.com.

Some screen shots of Forum Runner running on various devices:

How do I get the Forum Runner vBulletin Add-On?

You can download the latest version from vBulletin.org below. However if you download this version, you still need to register your forum on our directory list so it shows up in the iPhone/Android client. Please note that if you download the addon from vBulletin.org, you will need to download the unique sitekey.php file from http://www.forumrunner.com after you register your forum.

To register your forum, simply head over to http://www.forumrunner.com/?p=register. Full instructions to register your forum in the Forum Runner database are there. Once you register your forum, you can download the sitekey there. Simply place this file in the "forumrunner" directory that is created when you unarchive the add-on.

Also, there is a support forum located at: http://www.forumrunner.com/forum Please post up your ideas or any issues you have with the App there.

If you are using the latest vBulletin, (4.1.12+), then when you upgrade the forum software, you will get the forum runner updates.

However, since the release cycles don't sync up, there may be a lag between the two.

If you want to force upgrade Forum Runner to the latest version and you are on 4.1.12+, log into the Forum Manager at forumrunner.com, choose 4.1.1-4.1.11 and download the add-on and fully install it (overwrite the forumrunner directory). This should work fine since they are basically the same code base. This may change in the future, but for now, it should work. Just be sure to do the full install (import the XML file, etc).

Here are a couple additions for the product..

What this does is fixes the WHO'S ONLINE PAGE so that it whill show that a user is using Forum Runner and give them a link to the developer website so they can get the app!

Also note, I did not phrase this as you need to add phrases to the product to do it but below is info on doing that if you wish. This requires two new plugins as follow:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

ADMINCP >> PLUGIN & PRODUCTS >> ADD NEW PLUGIN

Product - Forum Runner
Hook Location - online_location_process
Title - Forum Runner - WOL Online Location
Execution Order - 5

Plugin PHP Code

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Plugin Active - YES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ADMINCP >> PLUGIN & PRODUCTS >> ADD NEW PLUGIN

Product - Forum Runner
Hook Location - online_location_unknown
Title - Forum Runner - WOL Online Location Unknown
Execution Order - 5

Plugin PHP Code

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Plugin Active - YES

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, if these were phrased the code above could have been like this...


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Perhaps these two plugins and phrase can be added (Add phrase as Who's Online Phrase)
