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.

  1. From now on I'll follow this thread, even if still I can't understand why I'm not getting email notifications.
  2. Already started moving my different type of my work in one site. Maybe I've 50+ for vBulletin, but I also have a dozen for WHMCS, don't say the stand alone PHP scripts.
  3. The good point is that I'll be able to release some custom vB4 mods, that never released here. My client moved to XF, so I can release them to public.
  4. Even if I'll upload in my site all the old addons (except for vB3 that if @Dr.CustUmz is interest, he can get them), but I'll focus to update and recode them by adding new features to be responsive.
You can follow my at: https://www.christeris.com Even if registration works, I've scheduled to start operating it on Sep 15th (yes, this year )


Wish you all the best,
Chris
Is your new site currently down? I was going to check it out, but just get an error message.

I received some disappointed messages and I found them correct. Not so good to operate something for vBulletin in a site that works with XenForo. That's why I registered a new domain, where I installed the project and I'm waiting to finish some addition before go live (even if the site is open).

Doesn't look like this ever went live?

Just a little bit of constructive criticism.
You need to create a domain and stick with it. Over the past couple years, you've created and then turned off way too many sites. Nobody can follow anything or keep up to date where things stand. I think you've had at least 10 domains now that were launched and then without warning shut down.

Been trying to be supportive of Project V4 ever since you first released it, by purchasing the add-on and was looking forward to all the future development you mentioned (classifieds, newsletters etc.) but ever since the initial launch there hasn't been any real updates or additions and the ever changing web sites is getting frustrating.
