Willing To Share MY Custom CMS

I have a custom CMS that is totally vbulletin compliant and uses vbulletin templates.

I paid heavly to have this developed for 3.0.7, then an upgrade to 3.5.* and I upgraded it myself to 3.6.4. It works with a custom template but could easluy be modified to work with any template that can be placed in the template system

I am willing to share this with the vbulletin community. With improvements, it could be expanded

My home page is sportsrant.com

If anyone is interested in using this system or helping me increase the CMS in anyway, I will give you the engine to work on free of charge

Thanks,
Mike
Sportsrant.com

Here are some of the features:

-CMS compatibility and features:
-Works with VBSEO
-Can create external pages based on forums and Forum id's
. http://www.sportsrant.com/blame-players-a37638.html is the same as

-Has full printable version

-Works with vbulletin Poll System

-Random Article

-Has own archive system > http://www.sportsrant.com/archive

-Modified vbgallery/photopost gallery (must have license)

-Search uses vbulletin search which returns forum results

-Login is vbulletin login

-Uses vbulletin phrases and <if></if> statments

-uses Mod_Rewrite

-Can Submit news which truncates post in "news forum" for SEO purposes

-Modified to work with all vbulletin hacks

-has link addition areas

-admincp control area

Brilliant!
I actually use VBSEO.

Couple questions:
  • Is the Navigation included?
  • Will you provide support if i need it?
  • What was your method for featuring "Rant Girls of the Month?
    (I edited the inc_features.php file and had it only display images from a category i've made called featured images)

I would love to be the first one.

webmaster@ny-dev.com

Thank you!

1) yes I will include the navigation but it would need to be adapted to your style

2) I will provide as much as I can

3) My vbgallery is hacked to the hilt, hope that makes sense! I can try and answer that better than that if that does not make sense

What I did was have a template made and then the orignal developer modified the CMS to work around that

So an example of how to implement this CMS would be:

1) someone purchases a skin from template monster and then we modify the CSS and vb_news (template name for this system) so it works with your skin/template

Make sense?

Well I had my "theme" for my home page designed, a custom template. The example I am trying to provide is showing you is one way to implement this. It is not an "out of the box" CMS > like vbadvanced!

What I am saying is that You can create this cms to work around a template or theme you already have

Does that make sense? Sorry if I am making you confused ( i do this to myself all the time)

Not sure I really know how to go about getting this started, lol

Maybe someone could help me package this into some type of installer? Maybe that is what I need to do!

Ideas?

I will create a zip file with all the important files, templates and etc...

I will need a few days to accomplish this!


I am also looking for any coders/developers that maybe interested in taking this over as a project to add/change/improve this. If done correctly, i believe that it could be quite amazing for vbulletin in general

Listen I need some help with this.

I need someone that is familiar with vb to help me create an install package of export all the correct templates and hooks!

I can get all the necessary files for this and am willing to let someone in to my admin area to help me get this done so I can test this on a new/test install of vb!!

Anyone willing to help me get this done, please email or PM me!

Thanks,
Mike

Unless I get a developer to help me create some sort of install package with an XML product, I am not sure how I can get all the correct templates and edits

I know that I can get the actual scripts, that is easy, but I will need some help before I can continue

Sorry for any trouble this may cuase

Also quite willing to do the beta test thing

From the looks of this if it's done right it'll solve a lot of people's problems.

Give me a yell.
