vbNetwork - share forums with other boards
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by zethon (Coder) zethon is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.4 Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 71
Released: 03 May 2009 Last Update: 02 Jun 2010 Downloads: 590
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files External Content Is in Beta Stage  

vbNetwork

Summary
This add-on gives you the ability to share forums with other message boards without having to share any database information. The plugin runs through webservices and uses XML.
Release Notes
Currently the installation is easy but if you want to set up and run your own network it will help if you're familiar with XML. Joining an already existing network is fairly simple.

This plugin is developed using vBulletin 3.8.X and being tested on 3.6.X and 3.8.X. If it works on both of those, I will assume it works on 3.7.X.

If you would like my help writing versions for phpBB, IPB or other message board software, please feel free to contact me.

If you are interested you can join my existing network, but please note that it is mostly a trolling-based community of boards. Feel free to start your own network with other boards.

Product Specifications
  1. several plugins
  2. one cron job
  3. file uploads
  4. new DB tables
  5. several phrases

Installation
Approx 2-5 mins
See the included installation instructions.
Upgrading/Updating
  1. upload all files in the upload directory, overwriting any existing files
  2. re-import the XML file, setting "Overwrite" to "Yes"

Configuration
See the included documentation for details.

In version 0.9.5 it says the ability to sync network users via email was added, can anybody tell me how to run this feature as it is not in the Network Management section in the admin control panel.

Finally got the MySQL issue sorted out.

Now we have a standard issue with the scheduled task. This is the output:


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

Below is a screencast going over all of our settings and layout (so you can see we've set everything up correctly!). Note we did set the forums to the "bandaids" network in their options and their ids both to 999.

Posting to follow the progress - I really want to use this, but I'm going to need the dumbed-down version of the instructions.

(And, I guess I'll need to figure out what the hell CHmod is.)

After some playing about we got all the settings right and have tested this mod and so far so good.

If you run snooker, pool or billiards related site and want to join our network then please let me know, drop me a email via the contact us form on TheSnookerForum.com

Good mod hope to see this mod supported via other forum software soon.

As a follow-up to what my partner wrote, we don't have a huge budget but we would be willing to pay someone for their time if they can help us get this set up and working for us!

Is anyone willing/able?


Cheers,

Sharifa

Zethon, this mod looks marvelous.

So I can network with you if I want to ...?
Is there perhaps anyone else interested in networking?
I have a kinda small site with no general "agenda", so lots of small talk and sports ....

Mostly American members.

How does this modification fair with word censoring and images? Do posts that are displayed from another site on your network become censored? What happens if a user on another site abuses by posting disgusting images. Can you ban that 1 person's posts from being visible?

After creating a new network via adminCP, the message "could not find phrase vbn_created_network_successfully" appears, but it seems to create the network. Any ideas?
