This is a small hack that it will allow you to turn off the public display of the version number of your vBulletin forum. You can enable and disable it at the Acp-Options-Forums Home Page Options.

I know that it can be easily done by changing the language phrase but this way is handier in my opinion.

Updated: With hiding the version in the templates automatically with thanks to Boofo.

Update again. Now it hides the version at the archives as well and therefore the version is hidden everywhere.

This modification doesn't hide that part there.
If the admin of www.yoursiteurl.com know their stuff then the only thing that appears there is a small popup where you have to enter the user and password from the htaccess protection

You need a .htpasswd and a .htaccess file.
Check if you can store the .htpasswd file outside the www root folder if possible. This depends on your host.

More information here: http://www.htaccesstools.com/articles/htpasswd/
Or just google for "htpasswd protection"

Setup a different user/password combination than your forum user.

so e.g. your vb admin user is
user: admin
password: vbulletin123
then choose this for your htpasswd protection:
user: techguru
password: methinks
Don't use the same login because then it is useless!


The .htaccess file goes into the /admincp folder (note the leading '.' which is important to hide the file)
The .htpasswd file goes in the best case outside of the folder that is accessible from outside. But you can also store it in the /admincp folder. (also note the leading '.')


Why doing this? If someone gets hold of your admin login then they still cannot login into your admincp!
You can / should do the same with the /modcp folder. But setup a different user / password combination there.

I'm on 4.1.10 and it works for me too.

I did have it installed ages ago though but it's stayed working through upgrades of VB.
