vBadvanced Homepage v1.1 Released! (01.27.04)

vBadvanced Homepage is an advanced homepage / portal that will allow you to include different options from your vBulletin message board on your site's homepage. It also allows you to easily create and manage new pages which are completely powered by vBulletin and vBadvanced. There are over 40 options where you can enable/disable the features, plus everything is template based so it is very easy to customize and change everything through your Admin CP.



Features:
  • Login box for members to log in to your site on the homepage.
  • Post News in a forum you specify and have it appear on your homepage.
  • Create new pages in which the content will replace the news section of your homepage.
  • Show the latest threads started in your forum on your homepage.
  • Show a poll and allow users to vote and see the results on your homepage.
  • Shows users avatar, new private messages, and buddy list for members who are logged in.
  • Shows a list of active users.
  • Shows statistics such as total members, threads, posts, top poster, newest member, and today's birthday's.
  • Shows a mini calendar with links to days with scheduled events, and a box with today's scheduled events.
  • Search box to allow users to quickly search your forums.
  • Set and change all options via the Admin CP.
  • Ability to easily switch on/off the polls, users avatar, buddy list, online users, search box, calendar, custom templates, news icons, news comments, smilies, set the maximum number of news posts, and many other options via the Admin CP.
  • Everything is completely template based so it is very easy to customize.
  • Install file that will make all database queries and templates for you in seconds.
  • Uninstalls in seconds.
  • Tested and stable with vBulletin 3.0 RC.
  • 100% validated XHTML 1.0 compliance
A nice feature of vBadvanced Homepage is that it is optimized and designed for large web sites. vBadvanced Homepage performs only 5 queries with all the options turned off. Some options will cause the script to perform extra queries, but even with all the options turned on it still performs only 17 queries at max.

Here is a list of each extra function that will cause extra queries:
  • News - 1 query
  • Latest Threads - 1 query
  • Poll - 1 query (2 if the user has voted)
  • User's Avatar - 1 query
  • Buddy List and/or Online Users - 1 query
  • Mini Calendar - 3 queries (none for the simple calendar)
  • Stats - 2 queries
  • New Posts - 1 query

I have vbadvanced working now after getting it to stop showing me that blasted blank page but now my error is that clicking on anything doesn't take me to forums/etc... ... instead of linking to the forums it goes to .com/showthread... etc... I think you get the point. Basically its not linking correctly. I tried going through as many pages as I could of this to prevent double posts of the same question but I couldn't find one with similar probs. Any help?

It sounds like you may have your path set wrong at the beginning of adv_index.php.

I don't believe I have... otherwise it wouldn't come up at all and give me those errors? Right?

Let me explain, I just converted from phpbb to vbulletin. Now, when you first log into the site through the vbadvanced index page, it says you have to change your password because its old. ETC ... so when you click from there, it doesn't take you to /forums/ and then the link... it instead takes you .com/link ...

hmmm and my smilies are not showing up on the front page right... :ninja:

Am I making sense?

Just tested!!

When you set your board to OFFLINE in admincp, portal is NOT viewable.

getting:

Sorry, the board is unavailable at the moment while we are testing some functionality.

We will be back soon...
