An interesting concept. So I could register at one, and would I immediately be able to log into the next with those same credentials, or would I have to wait until my stuff got sent around?

Sounds complicated. I've never seen a mod that did this.

IB is running a lot of car forums these days. I wouldn't be surprised to find these are all on the same server, or use the same server for the db. And of course they have full time programmers accomplishing it.

What if you configure all forums to use exact same database, wouldn't that be what you are looking for?

As they share forums between sites, I think they are running all sites in one server or at least share the same database server. And the network forums can be done by using a global_start hook plugin (or something like that) to hide forums in $vbulletin->forumcache based on domains. Make any sense?

IBAnders released a mod for 3.8.x that was moved to modification graveyard that did this - it was moved because people couldn't read simple instructions and complained that it wasn't working - however it was they were just slow and couldn't come to grips with it.

I still have it for 3.8.x and am working on porting it over to 4.0 for my site and series of sites it will do everything you are after.

Mainly what it is - there is one forum www.foruma.com; then what this mod allows you to do is set up forumb.com; forumc.com; forumd.com dedicated certain categories to each of the sites.

So what happens you log into forumb.com - it has category 1, 2, 3 - you then go to forumc.com (which has a different style/layout) and on this site it has category 1,4,5,6 and so on.

What this means is behind the scenes (admin panel) it is just one giant forum however when going to the websites it looks like four different websites.

It allows you members to register for one and log into all (because really behind the scenes it is just one giant forum); it allows you to share an off topic/general discussion forum between all of the sites if you want; or announcement forum between all of them.

Was an awesome modification and am hopeful to have it for 4.x for my sites shortly - am just working through slowly as I am not a good coder.

By the looks of things no

As vb have done away with the licence and you now OWN your forums and only need to pay for upgrades after a year or v5

You should be able to have many forums on 1 domain as you own your forums now

This is how i see it anyway and i cant see how this is wrong but maybe ????
