  2. vBulletin 5.3.0 is now available. Customers with valid licenses are encouraged to use this version of the software. Two-Factor Authentication We are proud to introduce Two-Factor Authentication for control panel sessions. Two-factor Authentication provides additional security using your smartphone. You would enable this feature in your configuration files. Then each user can generate their own secret token from their user settings panel. Once enabled, the user will retrieve their login token from the app they choose to use. We recommend using Google Authenticator on most platforms. Once the user has created a security key it will be required on appropriate logins. Currently, this functionality covers the AdminCP, ModCP, Inline Moderation, and Site Builder. These are locations controlled by the cpsession system of the software. Read more about Two-Factor Authentication in this article (https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/arti...authentication). Calendar Following the implementation of events, we have added a Calendar Page, and corresponding modules, to the system. This allows you to present your upcoming events in a traditional calendar format. This should allow your users to discover events easily. The calendar can be accessed from any Upcoming Events module. It will inherit any search parameters of that module. It can also be accessed by adding /calendar to your site address. New modules Calendar - This is the calendar module used for the new page. You can also place this module on any page where you might want to display this information. Tab Container - This new module can contain other modules. This will allow you to create a custom tabbed page on your site. We use it on the Calendar page as an example. There the tab container module holds two modules: the calendar module, and the upcoming events module. System Requirements Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.0 Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5 Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+ Current Version Support Schedule: Active Version - 5.3.0 Security Patch - 5.2.6 Security Patch - 5.2.5 No Patch Release - 5.2.4 or earlier.

It is designed with infinite scrolling and will automatically load more events as you scroll to the bottom of the module. This can be placed on any page where you want to show your events. RTL Support A majority of outstanding RTL issues have been resolved throughout the software. We would like to extend special thanks to our beta testers for their help with this. These fixes enable us to provide better support as we continue to work towards full UTF-8 compliance throughout vBulletin. If you use an RTL language and continue to have problems, please make sure that you are using one of the provided styles without template or CSS edits while testing. Options Several obsolete options have been removed from the AdminCP. Either the functionality controlled by these options no longer exists or there better ways to control them. These are: "Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template" "Friends Per Page on Full Friends List" "Show Last Post on Profile Page" "Avatars Per-Page" "Show Forum Descriptions in Forum Listings" "Last Thread Title Maximum Displayed Characters" "Show Moderator Column" "Check Topic Subscription" "Throttle Check Period (minutes)" "Enabled User Profile Features" "Queue Search Updates" System Requirements Minimum PHP Version: 5.5.0 Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5 Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+ PHP 5.5.0 Deprecation PHP 5.5.X has reached its end of life and is no longer supported by the PHP Group.

  12. vBulletin 5.2.5 Connect is now available to all vBulletin 5 Download customers with an active license. This version contains fixes and updates to over 130 issues in the software. System Requirements Minimum PHP Version: 5.5.0 Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5 Recommended PHP Version: 7.0.9 or higher Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+ Page Manager A Page Manager has been added to SiteBuilder. This first iteration is pretty basic. It lists all custom pages and channels and links to them for editing or deletion. This will be handy if you forget the route to a page or simply want to see what you or other administrators have created. Please give your feedback on this new feature so we can make it more robust in the future. This tool can be accessed by choosing the "Pages" option in SiteBuilder. SiteBuilder Menu Along with adding the Page Manager, a few other changes have been made to the SiteBuilder Menu. The Channel Manager link has been shortened to Channels. The Styles tool has been moved to the left most position for better flow in the menu. vBulletin Messenger Enhancements have been made to the AJAX polling in vBulletin Messenger to reduce server load. Along with this, there is a new option to allow Administrators to control how many Messenger chats appear on the Messages Dropdown menu. Messenger menus have also been refactored to use the vBulletin Responsive Menu component introduced in vBulletin 5.2.4. Image Uploads In order to handle an increasing number of metadata tags added to images by smartphones and cameras, image handling has been reworked. Most images that fail our internet security checks will be rewritten before storage. These images will have the majority of their metadata stripped upon saving. This allows us to prevent executable code from being embedded in images will providing support for a larger number of devices. Caveats If your site needs support for Animated GIF images that are uploaded, you must use the ImageMagick library under Settings -> Options -> Image Settings. This will require that the ImageMagick executable is installed on your server and the exec() function is not blocked in your PHP settings. Contact your host if you need help setting up ImageMagick. JPEG is a "Lossy" format. Converting JPEG images will result in a slight quality loss. This is currently unavoidable. UTF-8 Support New installations will use UTF8 character sets in the database when supported. If for some reason you cannot use UTF-8 in your database you can set the character set explicitly in /core/includes/config.php with this line: Code: $config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'utf8'; This allows us to move forwards on supporting UTF-8 on all vBulletin installations. We're working behind the scenes to make this possible given the wide range of character sets in use today. You should make sure that you have both the mbstring and iconv libraries installed in PHP if you need to support non-Latin languages. Code Cleanup A number of obsolete functions have been removed from the system. These are mainly in functions.php: split_string to_ascii fetch_soft_break_string construct_window_page_nav fetch_lastposter_userinfo vbmail fetch_profilefield_display vbheaders_sent exec_switch_bg fetch_start_end_total_array print_standard_error add_query convert_int_to_utf8 convert_unicode_char_to_charset We have also removed the classes associated with Legacy User handling. Javascript and CSS have also been updated to remove obsolete code and class references. If you have third-party add-ons that use any obsolete code, you will need to contact the developers of those products for updates.

  17. vBulletin 5.2.4 is now available to all customers. This version contains fixes and updates to over 125 issues in the software. System Requirements Minimum PHP Version: 5.5.0 Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5 Recommended PHP Version: 7.0.0 or higher Recommended MySQL Version: 5.6.0 or higher New Feature: Custom Image Resizing When images are uploaded to the server, vBulletin will resize them to predetermined sizes set under Settings -> Options -> Message Attachment Options. While there are five different sizes (icon, thumbnail, small, medium, and large), this may not fit all content. In 5.2.4, the editor has been updated to allow custom resizing of images. When you're editing content with an embedded image, you will notice a handle that allows the image to be resized in the lower right corner after selecting it. You can resize the image to fit your needs and vBulletin will use the closest image size to keep bandwidth low. Fine-tuning of the image display will be handled by the CSS assigned to the image. The values for this change are stored as JSON within the BBCode for the image itself. The end user should not have to modify this JSON at any time. New Feature: Avatars shown in @mentions A new option has been added to show the user's avatar before their name when a @mention or [user] bbcode is placed in any content. This option is enabled by default. If desired, you can disable this at Settings -> Options -> BB Code Settings. Display Avatars Next to User Mentions If set to "Yes", user avatars will be displayed next to User mentions or instances of the [USER] bbcode in posts. Updated Feature: reCAPTCHA v2 reCAPTCHA version 2 has been added to vBulletin. If you use reCAPTCHA, it is recommended that you upgrade to this version as soon as possible. It provides a better user experience. reCAPTCHA version 1 will be removed from vBulletin 5 in the 5.2.6 release and is considered deprecated at this time. If you don't have a reCAPTCHA key, you can obtain one here: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/index.html vBulletin Messenger Response to this feature has been overwhelmingly positive. We've added enhancements to the functionality. The Messages menu in the header of every page will allow you to start a new message. In addition, we have created two new options to handle the flow of replies to Messenger chats. You can find these under Settings -> Options -> Private Messaging Options. The first option will allow you to change the flood check value for creating private messages, which Messenger is based on. When upgrading, this will be set to the current Flood Check value (default: 30 seconds) You can lower or increase this to fit your needs. The second option allows you to exempt private message replies from the flood check. This will allow smoother chatting amongst multiple recipients. Minimum Time Between Private Messages You may prevent your users from flooding your private message center by activating this feature. By enabling floodcheck, you disallow users from making another private message within a given time span of their last message. In other words, if you set a floodcheck time span of 30 seconds, a user may not create a private message topic or reply within 30 seconds of making his last message. Administrators and moderators are exempt from floodcheck. Recommended: 30 seconds. Type the number of seconds only. Enter 0 to disable this function. Skip floodcheck for PM Replies If enabled, the floodcheck is only applied to creating new private message threads. Replying to existing private message topics will be exempt from the floodcheck. This improves the user experience of vB Messenger as users will be able to create replies to each other very quickly in an existing private message thread. Cookie Updates A number of cookie related issues have been fixed: All session cookies have been updated to follow session only rules. The expiry of "Remember Me" has been increased to 365 days. This excludes Facebook which is still 30 days. Updated HTTPonly cookies to work more consistently. ForumRunner will now properly delete cookies when the user logs out. "Remember Me" cookies will no longer be overwritten by session timeouts. Responsive Improvements New dropdown menu components are now used throughout the system to bring consistency and increase usability in responsive modes. In addition to this, some buttons were not applying the proper CSS. These have been updated. Finally, when viewing an article section, the layout of articles should adapt to the screen size better. On devices with small screens, they will show as one column regardless of the display columns setting. This improves the usability of the article channels in vBulletin 5. Topics The "Mark Channels Read" link has been removed from the Forum sub-navigation on new installs. This link has proved problematic and hasn't worked consistently. A new "Mark Channels Read" link has been added to the bottom of the Forum List on the Forum page. Individual forums have their own link at the bottom of the page. The original sub-navigation link will remain on upgraded sites. Topic Preview has been updated. This is to prevent a double-click requirement that some individuals experienced. Entering topics should only require a single click of the mouse. PHP 5.4.X Support As announced with the release of 5.2.3, PHP 5.4.0 support is now deprecated. Database Cleanup If you upgraded from an older version of vBulletin, there are a number of tables that are considered deprecated and are no longer used in vBulletin 5 Connect. These tables may contain a considerable amount of data and increase the size of your database storage. In order to streamline the database, we are working to remove these unused tables. The tables removed in this version are: forum forumread groupmessage groupmessage_hash groupread navigation plugin route socialgroup socialgroupcategory socialgroupicon socialgroupmember subscribeforum subscribethread subscribegroup Once these tables are deleted, the information will be gone forever. We suggest that you make a backup of them if you feel you might need the data in the future for some other application.

This option is enabled by default. If desired, you can disable this at Settings -> Options -> BB Code Settings. Display Avatars Next to @User Mentions If set to "Yes", user avatars will be displayed next to @user mentions or instances of the [USER] bbcode in posts. vBulletin Messenger Response to this feature has been overwhelmingly positive. We've added enhancements to the functionality. The Messages menu in the header of every page will allow you to start a new message. In addition, we have created two new options to handle the flow of replies to Messenger chats. You can find these under Settings -> Options -> Private Messaging Options. The first option will allow you to change the flood check value for creating private messages, which Messenger is based on. When upgrading, this will be set to the current Flood Check value (default: 30 seconds) You can lower or increase this to fit your needs. The second option allows you to exempt private message replies from the flood check. This will allow smoother chatting amongst multiple recipients. Minimum Time Between Private Messages You may prevent your users from flooding your private message center by activating this feature. By enabling floodcheck, you disallow users from making another private message within a given time span of their last message. In other words, if you set a floodcheck time span of 30 seconds, a user may not create a private message topic or reply within 30 seconds of making his last message. Administrators and moderators are exempt from floodcheck. Recommended: 30 seconds. Type the number of seconds only. Enter 0 to disable this function. Skip floodcheck for PM Replies If enabled, the floodcheck is only applied to creating new private message threads. Replying to existing private message topics will be exempt from the floodcheck. This improves the user experience of vB Messenger as users will be able to create replies to each other very quickly in an existing private message thread. Responsive Improvements New dropdown menu components are now used throughout the system to bring consistency and increase usability in responsive modes. In addition to this some buttons were not applying the proper CSS. These have been updated. Finally, when viewing an article section, the layout of articles should adapt to the screen size better. One devices with small screens, they will show as one column regardless of the display columns setting. This improves the usability of the article channels in vBulletin 5. PHP 5.4.X Support As announced with the release of 5.2.3, PHP 5.4.0 support is now deprecated. Database Cleanup If you upgraded from an older version of vBulletin, there are a number of tables that are considered deprecated and are no longer used in vBulletin 5 Connect. These tables may contain a considerable amount of data and increase the size of your database storage. In order to streamline the database, we are working to remove these unused tables. The tables removed in this version are:forum forumread groupmessage groupmessage_hash groupread navigation plugin route socialgroup socialgroupcategory socialgroupicon socialgroupmember subscribeforum subscribethread subscribegroup Once these tables are deleted, the information will be gone forever. We suggest that you make a backup of them if you feel you might need the data in the future for some other application. Warning: It is recommended that this version of vBulletin should not be deployed on Production Servers at this time. Do so at your own risk.
