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.

Easier to turn things OFF than install loads and loads of products !?

If you don't want to show WOL, then you don't have to try and find a setting or 6 buried deep somewhere, you just don't install that bit.

This easy install the bits you want and not the bits you don't makes it a simple to use system and highly customizable for each individual site.

The only default installation is the basic news module. After that everything else is at the discretion of the site admin and what is best suited for their site as well as displayed exactly how you want it.
Ok. Does this allow creation of custom modules?

That be a matter of preference.

Yes, it allows easy creation of custom modules as it uses the Plugin and Product system.

Very nice. If I didn't have my own already, I'd install this in a heartbeat. This is easily the best portal I've seen. I like simple and to the point; this meets that critique.

This allows BB Codes.

The items on the live portal all include BB Code in one form or another. HTML Username Markup is also fully operational, although this is not included on the demo version.

My one question..

Does it allow for more then one page with each page using different news forums?

That's the big bonus of vbadvanced to me, and if your product could do similiar I would definately give it a go

At the moment it doesn't, but this is something that I am looking into.
