Okay so we all need security right?

Well if you want extra sucurity it helps to remove the vbulletin version,

vBulletin version will be removed from the following pages:

First, login to admin control panel.
Under Styles & Templates tab go Style Manager | Select skin and click Edit Templates on dropdown menu | Edit Footer template
Find:

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

Replace with:

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


The version is now removed from the footer.
Now we'll remove it from the admin/mod login.

Edit includes/adminfunctions.php

Find:

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

Replace With:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

I don't think this would be a good idea. Besides it's kinda like altering the copyright notice without purchasing the branding fee option. If vBulletin finds out about this, then I think they'll sue your ass up!

Sue him for what? How has he damaged them? At most they would revoke his license, which they will not - as Jelsoft allow version removal.

It is not a violation to remove the version. Relax. Though it is much easier to edit the phrase.

I'm sure someone would visit vbulletin.com if they really wanted to hurt a site to see which version someone is running, just type vbulletin x.x.x in google and see sites of all versions.

Just a point, but nice mod though. At least you can do it, wish I could!

for real people, calm down. Its not your liscense thats going to be revoked and thats the most jelsoft will do 9 times outta 10. Oh and if they are feeling real good, they try to get your hosting company to remove your account

But anyway, i still wonder why someone would take all those steps to remove something controled by phrases anyway, and then even remove it from the AdminCP like the public can access that :???:

Yes I'm aware of that..

And I'm doing nothing illegal here; the copyright is staying intact,
just the version is removed.

If Jelsoft has a problem with this they can remove it

Yes it is, but why do it when the point is just to remove parts viewable by members and guests?

You might want your staff to know.

Version number is also shown on "Archive" page

I just edited the phrase to remove the version number from the footer and archive page, my mod/admincp have .htaccess files to lock them down anyway.

Still need to look into the page source tho just haven't got round to it.
