Installation



XenvB4 installation is pretty easy if you follow the instructions below, step by step.
  1. If you've installed any version (Alpha or Beta) of ProjectvB4, uninstall it !!
  2. Unizip the file and upload all the files and folders from upload/ folder, to the directory where you've installed vBulletin. ATTENTION !!! If you've renamed your admincp/ directory, or if you've the admin files in a different directory, then you need to upload everything from admincp/ to your real admin directory.
  3. Go to your admincp and first import the new style from Styles & Templates-> Download/Upload Style-> Import Style
    1. Browse and select the style/xenvb4-style.xml from your computer
    2. Let "Create a New Style" as is
    3. Just in case, is better to set "Ignore Style Version" to YES
    4. Let other settings as is
    5. Click Import
  4. XenvB4 comes with a set of plugins and templates, so you need to import the product file. Select Plugins & Products-> Manage Products
  5. Click Add/Import Product and select product-xenvb4.xml from your computer. Is good to set "Allow Overwrite" to YES.

Configuration



If XenvB4 installation was successful is time to configure it. First of all you must complete the follow steps which are important for XenvB4 operation.
  1. XenvB4 add the default forum icon and forum cover to your existing forums, but you need to update the cache to see them working. If you don't do this, all your existing forums will not show any icon or cover. Goto Admincp-> Maintenance-> General Update Tools and Rebuild Forum Information.
  2. Now is time to set User Profile Avatar and Cover Photo. I never understood the reason why these dimensions are not Global but per Usergroup. So you must edit one by one all your Usergroups and modify Picture Uploading Permissions with the values:
    1. Can Upload Profile Pictures : YES
    2. Can Upload Animated Profile Picture : NO
    3. Profile Picture Maximum Width : 1200
    4. Profile Picture Maximum Height : 340
    5. Profile Picture Maximum File-Size : 1024000
    6. Can Upload Custom Avatars : YES
    7. Can Upload Animated Avatar : NO
    8. Custom Avatar Maximum Width : 150
    9. Custom Avatar Maximum Height : 150
    10. Custom Avatar Maximum File-Size : 200000
  3. Back to Maintenance-> General Update Tools and Rebuild Custom Avatar Thumbnails
  4. At xenvb4/images/ you can overwrite the default images. Even if it's ok to use images with different dimensions, I highly recommend to use the default dimensions:
    1. email_logo.png (119 X 46)
    2. footer_logo.png (250 X 60)
    3. noavatar.png (150 X 150)
    4. nocover.png (1200 X 340) for both forum cover and profile cover.

Core Modifications



Depending on your configuration, may there are some changes that you need to do in core files. Unfortunately vBulletin license does not allows distribution of core files, so you must modify them on your own.

1.- HTML Emails
If you want to replace Text emails with HTML emails, you must edit the file: includes/class_mail.php
Line 285
Replace:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

With:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Line 294
Replace:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

With

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

PS: If you already did these changes before when you installed ProjectvB4, the only change on this file is line 294

2.- Editor Emoticons
If you want to hide the emoticons from the right side of the editor to earn some space in mobile view (emoticon will still be available from the button menu), you must edit the file includes/functions_editor.php. Open it with a text editor (not Word and similar), and change line 551
From:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

3.- Poll icon in Forum/Thread lists
To replace the Poll icon with a FA icon, your need to edit the file includes/functions_forumlist.php line 592
From:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Each forum supports now a photo for header background and a font-icon. I've setup a default photo and a default icon, but don't know the reason, why the forum cache does not allows to show them. If you go to admincp-> Forums and just open each forum and click save, even by don't doing any change, the default icons should appear. Of course you can change them according to your needs.

Please check the page output code (right click the page-> View source code) and check it at the top it has dir="rtl". I assume that it has. Then the problem is on the additional.css or projvb/css/custom.css where most probably I'll have float: left; or text-align:left.

I'll change them at the final version. But you can try to change on your own, just to be sure that the problem is there.

As I can't understand if the forum appearance is correct, I've highlighted one. As you've RTL this highlighted forum must be the 1st on queue. Is this true, or it's the 3nd (so the 1st on queue is on the left)?

OK, i got it and I know the fix which will also fix other similar issues. It's the grid system. It start counting from left to right. But there is a special version bootstrap-arabic.min.css where the whole grid system works RTL.

Don't do anything now as you need the same version file. As you said, wait for the next release.

But it works as responsive. Right? I mean that you can see it with your mobile to be good, even if there are issues with text format.

I have already seen it and it is very convenient
I will set it as default style after the next version

I've updated Bootstrap files and added a condition to headinclude, so according to your settings it will loads Bootstrap grid system LTR or RTL.

Sure needs extra changes to custom.css and additional.css, but all these as time comes.

This is the final modal profile. It has 3 tabs for Basic Info, Visitor Msg, Send PM. If user has no permissions to post a visitor message or PM, he'll see a "No permission" message, even if it came to my mind (I admit that I'm a bit teaser ) to show the form as normal, but the message will goes to the ... universe
