***Attention: This product is currently UNSUPPORTED***

We would like to release an Alpha version of the vBulletin4 Cerberus product. This product allows you to create one vBulletin4 installation which can power unlimited number of domains and sub-domains; while allowing to customize each domain differently to make it look like different sites or sections. Domains will have one universal admincp and user login information.

***Example***
www.supercoolautoforum.com - main site, all forums
ferarri.supercoolautoforum.com - custom style and forums, same login
bmw.supercoolautoforum.com- custom style and forums, same login
honda.supercoolautoforum.com - custom style and forums, same login
supercoolmotorcycleforum.com - custom style and forums, same login

*** Why are you releasing this, I want more features?! ***

This is a very simple product; we believe that the basic functionality provided in this product will satisfy a lot of communities - and since the product is simple - it will be easy to extend it and modify it to work for your custom community requirements.

Overview of Current Features:
  • One shared installation of vBulletin 4
  • One shared user account on all domains
  • Custom Style for each domain
  • Custom Forum listing for each domain
Known Issues:
  • CMS and Blogs are currently not configured to have special domain-specific categories and sections. CMS is shared across all sites although the appearance will be different for each domain.

Great job
I had that same problem in the original as well.

SocialNetworkBuzz, did you work on this originally or are you just here answering the prayers of us that have been begging for an update? Please let me know when and where I can download and where I can send a donation to.

I am using the "Re-usable Code" to update this to work with 4.1.11. I was not involved in this script originally, I used it and as like every one else, it broke upgrading to 4.1.11. So for a few weeks now I been modifying it to get it all working again. Search is the next thing on my list and then both vB cms and vBadvanced support and blogs.

You can send donations to [email protected]
That sounds well and good but I would caution anyone from sending a donation before you have released anything.

A lot of coders with the best of intentions have had nearly complete mods and for whatever reason they don't come through.

And you have never released a mod here before- you're going to start with CERBERUS?

I hope you do release it and it's awesome, but...

This is a theme that has repeated on vBulletin.org many times.

Hi Joe, I posted my paypal as he asked. Also I have released on vB before but I can't remember what e-mail I used for my old account - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=232748 I wish I could get what e-mail address I used to get that account working again as I have releases with over 20+ downloads on it.

Unfortunately as a mod I don't have access to account email addresses. You could try contacting one of the Admins like Lynne or Paul.

Been following this concept for years...

The effort has to come from multiple developers working on a single project for this.. no other way.. every time vBulletin is updated its going to break the code again and again unless it is coded properly. It is one thing to say you will make it work for the latest version of vBulletin, but it barely worked when it was released. This mod needs serious, permanent support from coders that have already done it to create their own forum networks. It would be a major benefit to the entire community, and would encourage partnerships between sites like never before.

It is truly a disaster to see this mod sitting here in limbo, for ages, without improvement.

For this project to ever work, one thing is certain:
  • No modifications should be required to the core vBulletin files.
  • Modifications should be in their own files.
  • Plugins should be encompassed in a product that can survive simple version updates from vBulletin.
  • The project will need to be taken seriously like VBSEO or vBadvanced in terms of longevity and useability or it will just die again.

These are my thoughts - since this has gone nowhere, to my knowledge. It is unfortunate. vBulletin should have made this a core feature that was supported, but even for them it complicates things. If developers remain unwilling to do anything with the code publicly, it will never, ever go anywhere.

I for one use this, but am stuck with an out of date version of vb because to update vb, will break cerberus!

I would be more than happy to help donate towards this as I'm sure a lot of others would, if it was to go forward. Hell I'd be happy to offer free hosting to a team who was willing to work on it. We have what seems like a group of people all working on forks or fixes, yet no releases. I honestly feel that somebody needs to step forward, take ownership and set up a project for this, get other coders on board and work together to keep this alive.

I agree these features should be part of the core vb code. I mean Cerberus was one of the main reasons I switched to vb, beforehand I had been using a mass of installs and database hacks to get a 4 phpbb forum installs to work together. I thought a single install with Cerberus allowing me subdomains for separate setups would be best. And it has been! But without updates its proving to be almost more hastle than its worth.

Is anybody willing to step up seeing as the original dev has gone awol?

I'm really amazed that vbulletin does not release a working version of this as a paid addon, instead of creating addons that no one asked for.
I'm sure many would by a paid & supported version of cerberus.

Just a quick aside, anybody know off hand how to set 1 subdomain to go straight to forum and skip the cms?

Unsupported modifications that do not function with the current version of vBulletin and further come with the bonus of breaking forums should probably be sent to the Modification Graveyard. If it's a modification or the latest software version / security patch it isn't an either / or choice. Fortunately this mod is nothing more than an out of date XML file which easily uninstalls. That was the only option.

The only reason this one isn't in the graveyard is because it was released by vBulletin in hopes that the community could get it working and even add features. It would have taken too much time away from regular development. It was better for them to release it as it was then to simply discard the code and not let anyone know they had tried the idea.
