vBonjour

Easy Customizable Portal System

Brought to you by www.peterska2.co.uk

Welcome to the launch of vBonjour. This is the base package which is required for all installations of this system.

What is vBonjour?
vBonjour is an alternative to vBAdvanced. It is an easy to install, modular portal system designed as a gateway to your site.

Why vBonjour?
This is pretty simple really. As the front page is the first thing that your visitors see, it is a welcome page. The first few names that were thought of were either very boring, or far too long winded and not at all catchy.

This is a base package. What is included?
The base package includes a news feature from up to two forums. The news from the first forum will be displayed first, followed by the news from the second forum. It also includes the left and right columns which can be activated or deactivated via some simple settings in the ACP. These columns can be customised without using any of the Add On Modules, or Add On Modules can be installed to expand on the functionality.

Why is it so modular?
vBonjour is extremely modular to allow for maximum customization of the page. The idea is to make it as easy as possible to install the items that you want to have included, and not have anything which you would be simply turning off. By using a modular method it means that every site can easily achieve their own custom portal without having to know any coding.

I want to add something that isn't already included. How do I go about this?
vBonjour makes use of the plugin system and includes it's own hooks. This allows easy devlopment of additional Add Ons and maximum flexability.

What about the ACP? Is it really complicated?
Unlike other systems, almost all the settings for vBonjour are collected in one setting group in the vBOptions. Because you only install what you want to use, you don't need to have lots of settings. Anything which does not use settings in the Portal settings group is highlighted in the documentation for that Add On.

Ok, so where are the screen shots?
Why have screen shots when you can have a live demo?
The demo is available at www.peterska2.co.uk

What versions of vBulletin does vBonjour work with?
vBonjour will work with vBulletin 3.6.0 and above. Support for sites running versions earlier than 3.6.0 will not be given.

Installed, AGAIN. This is pretty cool, did you do this at the same time or over a period of time and then release it at once?

It's completely modular and so you don't have all the hassle with complicated settings and trying to figure out what you want to use because you just install the add ons that you want and not the ones that you don't.

Just a minor typing one in some comments. It doesn't actually affect anything.

I've been working on it for a few months but it was just a static package with no flexability at all. I thought about it on Friday and decided that it could be done as a modular system, so I've spent most of the weekend and all day today coding it.

Can you make vBonjour be part of vB pages (or vB part of vBonjour)?

Ah, cool. Well, I installed it, but in the modules it says:

In your portal_left_column or portal_right_column template add $stats where
you wish to have your Statistics blocks appear. Unfortunatley these cannot be
separated in this release.
However, I cannot find the vBOptions -> Portal Settings page. Do you mean under Style Manager -> SKIN -> Portal Templates?

I have absolutely no idea what vB Pages is, but I'll look into it later in the week and see what I can come up with.

It's one of the setting groups in the main settings area. It should be right at the bottom of the list (or close to it).

To make the change identified though, you need the style manager.
