I just upgraded to vBulletin 3.0.3 and updated all my styles to work like the vbulletins when it comes to <if> and $parameter etc.
I also copied all of the edited styles to my vbindex styles.

Since i run my vbindex at another directory (www) and forum in (forum) i have added all bburl to all the proper places and it works almoust perfect.

In the navbar there is a "Private Messages: 0 Unread, Total 134." text where you can click on the "Private Messages" to get to your inbox. It seams like vBulletin has moved the URL (before it was private.php) to some other place and i cant find it.

So the link doesnt work at the moment from vbindex, does anybody know how to solve it?

*EDIT* Found it in phrase "private_messages_nav"

Is it possible to use the same forum but have a separate Portal home page... i.e. my site is mainly for Civil War reenactors but would like to have an entry point just for researchers and professional historians.

Possible to have two distinctly different vbindex index pages from the same forum?

If you mean have multiple different vBindex's, then no, not at present at least.

Should be compatible with Future Versions of vBull barring Any major Code Changes or Changes in Funtions.

Anyone?

For some reason it is trying to pull the wrong URL for the smilies.

It is trying to pull from http://www.everydayjones.com/images/smilies/smile.gif rather than http://www.everydayjones.com/msgboar...lies/smile.gif

How do I fix this?

You need to set your smilie image paths correctly via the Smilie Manager. See the vBulletin Manual for full details of editing and adding smilies.

May I ask how you got your sweet template working? Currently, my template isnt being read correctly. I tried editing the template.xml page but that didnt seem to effect it. Do I need to reinstall after editing the forum template?

Thx for the help!

NTLDR-

I know how to create a Navigation Box as per the Custom Box, but what code should I use so I can have links that call upon certain forums?

ex. I have:

Bio
Music
Lyrics
Photos

as forums. I want to be able to put links in a navigation box (custom box) that will show the contents of those forums in vbindex. Kind of using the same idea of how you can get the News Forum to show up when you put in an ID # in the options.
