    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/content.php/242-How-to-install-vbulletin

    vBulletin 4.0 and higher requires PHP 5.2.0 or greater and MySQL 4.1.0 or greater

    By Graphics Design, do you want us to give you a code or just design it?

    Fire away. Just note it is NOT guaranteed that we will use your theme though.


    We chose the best looking one / best fitting.

    Sure. As said, come up with some concepts.



    You will be working with word press portal.



    Forums structure:


    Wordpress (portal) -> vbulletin forum


    Portal:
    -News feed.
    -Pics, links etc.
    -Server statistics


    http://sonsofvalour.org/ (currently only a simple template is down)

    I was thinking a bit more of a simple portal like,
    Clan Banner,
    Clan video in the middle,
    Recruiting sign
    Button underneath to enter to the forums

    We all had a good chat about it last night.

    The site is going to be a bit more than just forums. We want to get the feeling so that when people come to our site they see us as the best, a fully functional and committed clan that is devoted to bringing our members and the public fair and hack free servers.

    On our front page we will have a news feed which will have the latest news on what the clan is up too, plans for the future, scrim statuses and pretty much anything else we feel everyone should know. Generally only the high council will be able to post here. The forums will be for discussion and general socialisation.

    Does that sound about right Crusader?

    We will.


    There was last time to an extent too.





    Im pretty much the #1 inquisition force to ensuring no one is abusing their powers and that things in the clan are fair. So because I am here frequently and have no exams on, you can be sure that things will be kept in check.

    I didnt really get a choice last time.


    I kept saying no because he who must not be named, wanted to move us all to his site.

    When I said his site was not ready and had not been tested, he got all of his buds to force me to say yes. (its amazing that the promises of admin powers, can give someone so much support)

    I had to give in because of the numerous support he had.




    Needless to say I imagine its still working for him as hackers seldom manage to make & command a clan.
