VaultWiki allows your existing forum users to work together on creating and managing a site's content pages, rather than competing to make popular threads. VaultWiki is a fully-featured and fully-supported wiki add-on solution for vBulletin.

Encourage Users to Work Together
VaultWiki allows your community to collaborate to create and publish content pages for your site. Multiple users can edit the same page, and your staff can moderate changes as they are made. VaultWiki maintains a detailed history of every page, making it just as easy to reverse unwanted changes.

Create All Kinds of Content
With VaultWiki, you can create general site content, user manuals for your products, wikis, eBooks, eCommerce product pages, and more. With a little imagination, VaultWiki can be purposed to do almost anything.

Seamlessly Integrates With Your Community
At its core, VaultWiki is an add-on product for your vBulletin forum platform. Its pages all meld with the forum's existing style. Users write new content with the same editor and BB-Codes they are already familiar with. The content is indexed by your forum's built-in search engine. And each user's contributions are acknowledged on his or her profile.

Attract New Membership
VaultWiki creates content and content URLs that are designed to drive new traffic to your site. With guides for search engines embedded in every page, each page preserves its value when it comes to generating traffic.

Fast, Responsive Support
Subscriptions come with free support in our forums and bug tracker system, and documentation is available online at all times. Paid installation and upgrade services can be ordered via our web site.

Active Development
The team at VaultWiki.org are actively involved in the development process. VaultWiki is constantly updated to be compatible with the newest forum software releases, to meet web standards, and to incorporate new technologies. Bugs are fixed promptly and new features come out all the time.

To check for product updates, it uses a built-in version checking function because the function vBulletin gives doesn't work for the VaultWiki version numbering system. (Some VaultWiki versions have 8 points and vBulletin's version function only supports 5 points).

The version number lookup is considered to be "external content"
This lookup does not load HTML content from any external source, it just asks for the numbers.
The lookup validates the external server against a bundled trust store, so it will never communicate with a different server for example if someone else buys the domain name in 20 years.

You cannot disable that, no. Once per 24 hours it checks if there is a newer version and shows an alert to admins if there is.

If you are really concerned about the "external content" flag, I would compare it to something else: the full version adds support for Facebook Share/Like, bookmarking, etc. These functions are also considered "external content" by how they work.

vBulletin 5 adoption rates are still very low (less than 2% of all vBulletin sites): https://tools.digitalpoint.com/cookie-search
Until this number improves, there is little incentive to invest in making a vB5-compatible release.

The most important thing to me is : does it feature a fully working mediawiki dump and images importer? Mostly pages (with their whole format, templates, pagelinks, images, galleries, etc...) and the whole categorization. And what version of mediawiki should I import from? I really need to know if I should expect a lot of formatting bugs in articles imported from mediawiki dumps.

Thank you

The full version features a working MediaWiki importer from a live installation of MediaWiki (by pointing it to the MW database and images directory path).

Everything from a stock MediaWiki installation is imported and syntax is converted. There might be some quirks here and there, but for the most part it should look fine. If not, open a ticket with support. However, anything that was added via third-party MediaWiki extensions is not handled by the importer.

The full version does not support adding categories via templates, as some MediaWiki templates might do. VaultWiki categories are stricter than that. Templated categories would only appear as links.

You can import from any version of MediaWiki since 1.5, although I recommend a later version like 1.24.

Thank you for your reply.

I have over 50,000 pages to import though so I wonder if those "quirks here and there" can not quickly escalate to something unmanageable.

I still can't make my mind about vaultwiki, the license is very cheap and it has many interesting integration features. On the other end I might run into tons of unexpected issues which I have no time to manage, and I will not benefit from future mediawiki upgrade.

Why wouldn't you sell a fully working bridge as well? I would buy the VaultWiki license twice for a working and supported bridge, because there isn't any at the moment afaik. The one product which exists is designed for deprecated php versions which are not valid for production anymore. Sounds like an opportunity for you to expand your market.
