NTLDR i got a small request, Can you post an add on to show the shoutbox on the forum index page? Either as a side column or vertical? I know this steers away from the Portal aspect of it, but it would be nice to have it there aswell

There is no need to post the same question every other post. You'll find the answer over at Core Forums, the offical place for vBindex 3.

The first post has been updated with vBindex RC2, the one I was planning on releasing for vB3 RC1 had it been released on Monday

RC2 contains the new templates that have the expaning/contracting blocks and a few other new features, which are listed in the first post.

If you thought installing Pre-RC2 was easy, wait untill you see this! Although there are no big changes for those of you upgrading, fresh installs are alot easier and the installer guides you through each step of the process and automates as much as it posibly can
