    vBulletin Suite 4.2.3 PL1 with WinxPortal / JemPortal Customizations

    Title: vBulletin 4.2.3 Patch Level 1 Suite including Keygen (WinxPortal / JemPortal Editions)

    Q: What is This?

    A: This is a re-mastered version of vBulletin Suite 4.2.3 with Patch Level 1 (PL1) included.

    Q: Why Would I want this?

    A: If you're on one of several of the sites owned and operated by my company, this is our spin on vBulletin.

    Q: What's been Modified?

    A: Most of the modifications are asthetic in nature here's a quick list of them:

    --- Modified the copyright footers to WinxPortal/JemPortal version 9.5i/11.0 codename Onyrix/Synergy
    --- Modified log in / log out to sign on and sign off
    --- Modified "remember me?" to "stay signed on?"
    --- Modified the admin/mod panel credits and signature bars
    --- Modified the default forum rules
    --- included replacements for default user and default group icons
    --- included the config.php builder by BOPS
    --- renamed keygen.php to ilicense.php
    --- Modified the default logos for the admin and mod control panels and the front end
    --- Changed the names of all the items by default on the navigation bar on the front end
    --- Modified a few instances of "vBulletin Blog" and "vBulletin CMS" to the appropriate app name with the registered trademark symbol
    --- Modified "vBulletin Options" to WinxPortal/JemPortal Options (depending on which version)

    Q: Do I need to modify anything after installation?

    A: Yes, if you want to get the links for the terms of service working (if you've specified an external terms of service in your vBulletin Options)
    you'll need to modify the phrases "read_agree_abide_by_rules" and "registration_rules_description" with your appropriate URLs but that's about it. (just do a search in the phrases for "your_rules_URL" and you'll find it)

    Q: Does this include any of the modifications like the chat, @mentions, thumbs up/down, etc. of the company websites?

    A: No, at least not baked in to the default installation. If you'd like to install these on your own you can use the files in "additional.ZIP" to custom tailor the software to your needs.

    Q: Do you claim ownership to vbulletin?

    A: No, we just made branding modifications and the like. Writing a big app like vBulletin from the ground up we could never do. Our Admin credits are modified to be consistent with custom branding, but we really don't own it.

    ====

    Q: What's New in v2?
    A: We've implemented the following changes:
    --- better organized the additional.zip file with a structure to better help users find the functionalities they need to more closely mirror our sites
    --- included more modifications in additional.zip to better match features in WinxPortal and JemPortal
    --- modified the JemPortal contributors block,
    --- changed more phrases for the blog system.
    --- given a description of the contents of additional.zip in this thread and more.

    ===

    Q: What's new in v3?
    A: v3 is a minor fix to v2 where more phrases are modified to the appropriate custom branding. No additional mods have been added to additional.ZIP in this release. and the version number of the file has been changed for JemPortal from 11.0 to 11.0J.

    Q: Is it really worth a v3?
    A: In my opinion, yes that way it's easier for me to keep track of my revisions even for bugfix releases. If I really wanted to be technical about it I guess this is more of a v2.1.0 but this is the third time overall I've had to re-upload these files so here they are.

    Q: Why are the version numbers of the files lesser than those displayed on the footers?
    A: Because the file versions are counting only public releases and NOT counting the internal releases that have been floating around my job for the last about 3 years.

    1. Installation Instructions


    To Install this on your server, it's a pretty standard vBulletin installation, but I've made things easier for you. Please take the following steps.

    1. download your selected version
    2. extract the ZIP
    3. upload the files in the /upload folder
    4. point your browser at install.php and fill it out with the information for your database, table prefix, and optionally the names of your admincp directory and/or modcp directory
    4.1 if you specified a different name for your admincp directory you're going to have to physically rename that on the server since the install.php won't do it)
    5. check your entries and if all looks good, click the button at the bottom.
    6. once the config generates STOP and proceed to step 7 in a new tab.
    7. open a new tab and point your browser to ilicense.php and if all looks correct choose the yellow link and wait for the customer number to generate.
    7.1 once it generates COPY IT AND SAVE IT IN A NOTEPAD or WRITE IT DOWN IN A SAFE PLACE in case you need it in very rare circumstances as once you close the keygen there's no getting it back.
    8. on the config.php builder tab, click the link labeled "link" and when the install loads up paste the customer number and do a standard vBulletin install
    9. once it's all done, remove ilicense.php AND the /install directory and enjoy

    Q: What Additional Functionality is included in Additional.ZIP
    A: Additional.ZIP includes a set of add-ons and products that are commonly deployed with WinxPortal and/or JemPortal to give it that extra flare. They are classified into a folder structure to allow a user to replicate the exact feature set of both applications but because these are add-ons you can mix and match these along with the base WinxPortal and JemPortal apps to custom tailor the solution to your needs.

    • The /Common folder contains add-ons that are common across both WinxPortal and JemPortal sites to give them the recognized feature set.
    • The /JemPortal folder contains those add-ons which are only deployed with a new JemPortal Installation and are never deployed with WinxPortal
    • the Optional folder contains add-ons which are deployed on either platform.


    Note that our specifications are just how we deploy these features but you can choose some, all, or none of them to deploy with your site but here's the list of the mods to make the exact clone of our sites.

    JemPortal is a superset of the features in WinxPortal so that's why the folder is called "common" rather than "WinxPortal"


    [List of Common Addons]

    • AJAX Live Search 4.0.6
    • DBTech Default Staff Signature 1.0.2
    • DBTech Follow User 1.5.0
    • DBTech Advanced User Tagging 3.2.5 PL2 (PRO*)
    • DBTech Cookie Control 1.0.0 PL1 (PRO*)
    • DBTech vBShout v6.2.17 (PRO*)
    • DBTech Redirect Banned Users 1.1.0 (PRO*)
    • Global Threads VB4 - BOP5-v202
    • Quick Account Switch 2.0.11
    • User Self-Delete
    • DBTech Advanced Post Thanks/Likes 3.4.1 (PRO)
    • VSa - Login To User Account v3.0.6
    • Ultimate Usergroup Markup
    • Registration Rules timer
    • auto-check remember me checkbox
    • Calendar Attendees system


    * the BF key for the PRO DBTech Addons is vbwarez.net

    [JemPortal Addons]

    • DBTech vBAnswers 2.0 (PRO*)
    • DBTech User Spotlight 1.6.6
    • DBTech Forum Live Feed & User Wall v1.2.6pl1 (PRO*)


    * the BF key for the PRO DBTech Addons is vbwarez.net

    [Optional Features]

    • DBTech Thread/Post Bookmarking 1.1.3
    • DBTech User Status & Moods 1.3.6pl2
    • DBTech Threadmins and Group Moderators v2.0.10 (PRO*)
    • DBTech vBAvatars v2.0.1 (PRO*)
    • DBTech vBQuiz v2.0.1 (PRO*)


    * the BF key for the PRO DBTech Addons is vbwarez.net

    Q: Am I Absolutely bound by your company's definitions of the features in WinxPortal and/or JemPortal?
    A: Nope! Go ahead and mix and match the edition with the features you need we don't care!

    Q: Why are you giving away the PRO versions of the mods that make up the "secret sauce" of your custom web Apps?
    A: because those were the only versions we had in the file collection at work AND to be a true clone of our corporate sites some features rely on the PRO versions. Another reason is that we wanted to stick it to vBulletin and Co. plus vbwarez is out of business anyway so who cares if we redistribute their pro content without their permission

    Q: Can I use addons for vBulletin 4.x.x with WinxPortal and/or JemPortal?
    A: Yes! All we did was just a bunch of re-branding otherwise it's just vBulletin Suite as usual.

    Q: I downloaded your original version 1 and don't have some of these things!!
    A: re-download the latest versions and re-install if you really want updated phrases. If you're just looking for the additional functionality, please just redownload additional.zip

    Q: My question/concern isn't answered here...
    A: put it in the comments below and I'l do my best to answer it.

    Great News!

    Additional.ZIP v3 is going live! Additional.ZIP v3 includes DBTech Advanced Post Thanks/Likes (PRO) as I have been forgetting to put that in the feature pack for the last 2 releases and it's one of the core features of the WinxPortal and JemPortal platforms. the files will he updated within the next 24 hours. Sorry that I left out such a core component . 1-800-MY-BAD!
