Few Questions, need quick reply!

I am launching my forum tomorrow. I need help!

I need a free plugin or something that will turn my links into stuff like this:

Instead of /member.php?u=2 it should be /member.php?u=Nath

Instead of /showthread.php?p=24 it should be /showthread.php?p=upcoming-fixtures

I want to block my members and moderators and everyone apart from my admins to be able to change their user title.

Where do i edit the allowed size for a signature image.

Is there a plugin where if some one posts a big image, it automatically gets shortened, and if you click the image, it takes you to the url of the image with the original size.

I also need a latest news plugin that only logged in members can see. Just something on the home page, underneath the menu bar, where i can write the latest news on the forum. Once again, i only want my members to see this, not guests.

Kind Regards,
Nath

Ok, about the links thing I am not sure which modification does this, I think its vB SEO, not sure..

For the user titles:
1- AdminCP > Usergroups > Usergroup manager > edit one by one setting the option "Can Use Custom Title" to NO except the admin usergroup.

right here you can also edit all the signature permissions .. just search (ctrl+F) for "Signature Permissions"

and the image resizer:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...=image+reziser

it works on vb 3.8 ..

vB SEO costs like 149 dollars, i asked for a free one.

Thanks, user titles done.

For the signature, it says this when i try and change mine - Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 9.8 KB (whichever is smaller). I need it to be like 700 x 180 How do i change this.

Thanks for resizer

Also what about "I also need a latest news plugin that only logged in members can see. Just something on the home page, underneath the menu bar, where i can write the latest news on the forum. Once again, i only want my members to see this, not guests."

go to

Admin cp> usergroups > usergroup manage: edit the usergroup (ex. admin )

press CONTROL + F and search for "Picture Uploading Permissions"

at the end of that 'category' of option you will see:
Signature Image Maximum Width (pixels)
Signature Image Maximum Height (pixels)
Signature Image Maximum Filesize (bytes)

just change the values.

here you have B - mb/kb converter:

----------------
about the news mod, you can use vBadvanced CMPS ( a portal system ) ..
you can get a free license and download it directly from here: www.vbadvanced.com

to make it only viewable by members only you should ask for support on their forum, they'll have a better answer for that.

you can see a demo of it here, on my own forum:
forum.gamezeventos.com

Thanks mate, just two things.

When i change my sig, it doesnt get updated on my older posts.

And

When deleting my sig pic on my UCP, i get this message when i click Save Sig:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /profile.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.11 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8i DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at footyfansforum.co.uk Port 80

Are you using some kind of modification such as vB Optimize? ..
if no, then try this:

go to your Admin CP > Maintenance > Update counters: I think the option for this is "Rebuild Forum Information" I'm not sure, I recommend you to wait for someone else to confirm this because as i said I'm not sure.

And about the other 2 errors I have no idea what that could be.. sounds like a server configuration error for me ..

You're welcome

vBSEO is a paid modification, no free versions of it..

you could wait for vB4, I think it will have this links thing already included and some other SEO functions ..

Might I remind you that:
/member.php?username=Nath would return the profile of the user with a name of Nath.

As for the others, you'd require mod_rewrites (.htaccess) and code editing. I wanted it myself but decided it was too much hassle with vB4 so close by.
