Well for someone who's got a huge, fast web server, queries aren't a problem. Would anyone be interested in coding this for me? :alien:

Also, it seems my members see ", ," for invisible users on the "Who was online today" bit. Any ideas on how to fix that?

I have no problem wit hthe copyright. It's just where it is that's the problem. (Notice the MOVE not REMOVE) I have tables surrounding the entire vbulletin software and the copyright just hangs at the end, messing up the tables and basically the entire layout.

Is there any way to move it or no?

When you can click "next" it's already done.

The dots don't have to move. It's done is a second.

Trouble with styles

I'm having trouble using new styles with vbindex - if I change the style from default, vbindex.php doesn't show up. It's blank.

Instead of reading 1800 post with the chance that its allready been asked. I'll ask it again.

The portal page vbindex.php is not the page I get when I type my domain, There is no index.* so I guess I need some sort of redirect?

I just renamed that file from vbindex.php to index.php and it works fine for me.

Re-run the installer and it should re-add all the vBindex templates into all your parent styles.

From memory find in vbindex.php:


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

Under it add:


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

That should do the trick, just uncomment the HTML you previously posted and it should show the correct stats.
