Yes I have tried experimenting with that but I don't know where to put the <br>'s in each template, can you help me please?

Edit: I just had a crazy idea, is it possible for 2 vBindex's to be installed on one server? If so, here is my idea:

I have a clan that I run and I am considering making a seperate vBindex for my clan's forum and page, but my site is hosted on my forum's site, so my forums is mysite.com/forums and my current vbindex is located at mysite.com/index.php but my clan's site is going to be mysite.com/clan/ and so I was wondering how to get the vBindex working since my clan's site is not in the forums directory, and it's not in the home directory, but it's in it's own directory. Oh and my forums for it wouldn't even be /forums the main forum for my site would be somthing like mysite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?forumid=9

This might sound kind of confusing but see if you can get what I am saying. I like vBIndex a lot and I want it to be my home page for my clan site and it's forum. Thanks.

Yes, this can be done easily, take a loom through the thread, two or three people have done this already.

As for the news you'll need to re-do the entire table structure so that each news item is in its own table seperated with a <br />

Loom through the thread? It is 103 pages long, but I'll do my best. I am pretty busy lately. Thanks for the answer.

Edit: Oh and I forgot to mention, I do believe it is a violation of your code to remove the copywrite text from the footer of your hack. Well I have come across a lot of sites that have, and I'm sure there is plenty out there. I think that is a discrace and you busted your balls to make this hack. If you need to find some, just type in vBindex in a google search and check out all the sites and look at there footer. One I happened to note was this one:

http://www.dfrsquad.com/forums/vbindex.php

Copywrite text is clearly removed from the footer of that page, and yes it is powered by vbindex. Just thought you should know because I greatly respect your work.

Edit2: Also now that I look, I don't think you exactly understand what I'm saying here. I do not want another page for vbindex, I want a SEPERATE vbindex. The seperate one pointing to a different news forum and different settings and different templates, not just a page you click from a link and it opens up a new page in vbindex that you customize. I mean an ENTIRELY different vbindex, please read my post again to see what I'm saying, and if you DO understand what I'm saying I'm sorry for doubting you, just making sure.

There is no requirement to keep the copyright text (Other than the standard vBulletin text) for this hack as the majority would re-move it regardless, however I have reported that site for the lack of vBulletin copyright both on the site and forums.

To have two version of vBindex running, you would firstly need to rename all the templates to newtitle_X from home_X and add them in the ACP for the styles required and then make a few modifications so that the news forum can be different for each one. See back a few pages for the variables you'll want to change.

If you go back several pages to areas where NTLDR and I were discussing some hacks to the hack, you'll find how to do what you want in explicit detail. If you look at my site, I have many vBindex's. I actually made a single vBindex home page and I dynamically feed it a variable to completely change the page, the news, etc. Even though I have many of the vBindex blocks turned off, it's still basically what you want I think. If you go my site and click on the different phones, you'll be taken to the different pages. And, even though YOU are busy, YOU do need to read back through the thread to find what YOU need. I did it when I came here, and it took me quite a while, but it was worth it. You'll find that people are more happy to answer your questions when you've put in a little homework before hand. This is an awesome script, and very simple and easy to twist into what you want it to do. NTLDR did an a great job.

Talking vBindex 3.0.0 Beta Update

For those of you interested in vBindex for vB3 I hoping to have the first beta ready in the next few days. All the existing features (excluding the poll) have been re-done and many more new ones added It uses 15 queries with all the current options switched on and does alot more then 2.1.

This will be an Addon to vB3 Beta 7 and requires no hacking of origional vB files to work correctly

I'll be releasing a public beta very soon, as I think its pretty much bug free and could be a while before I can vB3 hacking is allowed rather than the private selected beta I had previously planned

vBindex v3.0.0 Beta 1 - Public Beta Released

I happy to announce the first release of vBindex for vBulletin 3. This is the first beta so it may still have some bugs left in it, however after testing both here and at hellsatans site most of the obvious bugs have been resolved. The templates remain largely un-phrased untill vBulletin have added all a majority of the phrases into the language system. Due to the restrictions on discussing vB3 hacks and Addons here at vB.org, vBindex 3.0.0 Support will only be given over at Core Forums when you have PM'ed either myself or hellsatan your Core Forums username to us via the vB.org PM System. vBindex 2.x support will remain in this thread.
