vB Version: 3.8.4 Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 86

This is a small hack that it will allow you to turn off the public display of the version number of your vBulletin forum. You can enable and disable it at the Acp-Options-Forums Home Page Options.

I know that it can be easily done by changing the language phrase but this way is handier in my opinion.

Note: This mod it will hide the version at the footer only. It is meant to add some kind of security for ex, when hackers google for outdated version and hack forums at random.


To remove the version from showing when viewing the page source, do the following edits to the headinclude template

Find the following code:


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

and change it to:


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

Don't you have to keep the version number to maintain the copyright?

This hack is probably meant for vB4, since earlier versions of vBulletin are copyrighted to Jelsoft. Only vB4 and later are copyrighted to vB Solutions.

No you dont have to show the version number to maintain copyright so long as you have

Powered by vBulletin® Version *.*.* Copyright ©2000 - 2010

EDIT: I've noticed after installing this that it removes the yabbseo copyright text as well but whatever

Not true, this is the path of every vB Admin Panel, as long as it hasn't been changed: http://www.yourforumurl/admincp/index

Thats why people suggest to add a .htpasswd + .htaccess to the admin directory. Observe: http://vgchat.info/forum/admincp/

I don''t provide support through pm. Ask your question at the forums, thanks.




I didn't post this to be a smart butt, I posted it in case anybody tries to PM him with a question about the mod.
