    I'm going to tell you about the best press release and distribution provider in the world because I just hired them for my website and got so much organic traffic from them. You can easily go to this website to see their most recent press releases and more. check this out

    I've suggasted implementing tapatalk a while ago, and members seemed to be roughly evenly split between advocating and not.

    Is it possible to have a nightmode or darkmode as a separate function. Basically an inversion of this colorscheme?

    It's industry standard and built into all modern systems, nothing personal or effortful about responsive design whatsoever. It could also significantly improve the SEO for the site -- and while the site is meant to be a community hub, it is also most assuredly a business.

    vBulletin just doesn't accommodate it by default. You'd want something like Flarum or Simple Forum. Alternatively, you could switch to a responsive VBulletin template like Quarto: https://themeforest.net/category/for...lue=responsive

    Isn't this thread meant for users to suggest forum changes and improvements? I apologize if I misunderstood its purpose.

    With that said, user-friendly UX and UI are some of the many factors that can retain a healthy user base and attract new ones, while mobile optimization and compliance with new web standards keep you in good terms with big watchdogs like Google.

    For example, imagine an ugly, poorly optimized website that's riddled with bugs, but that has a trove of valuable and rare content, do you think a new user will stick around? Doubtful.

    You shouldn't be just "thankful", you should also care a little by constantly suggesting how to improve. Otherwise being just "thankful" is akin to being indifferent. By the way, making improvements has absolutely nothing to do with making a profit in this case.

    See, I was never notified of your reply to me. This is one of the things that could be improved/fixed with zero dollars just by tweaking vBulletin settings.

    Have to echo that the forum has lost quite a bit of character from the light styling.

    You know, you really just need a competent coder off Fiverr or Upwork who knows HTML5, CSS, and perhaps a little PHP -- although this seems like a CSS issue. There is no real domain expertise for vBulletin; it's just an out-of-the-box message board solution.

    If there is anyone selling themselves as an expert in vBulletin they're probably stuck in a time warp from 2006 -- this should be an afternoon of work for most frontend devs.

    Quick question: I’m trying to finally upload awn avatar to my profile, but it doesn’t work. The picture in question is smaller than 64kb and it’s size is exactly 100 x 100 px.

    When i search for threads and posts through someone's profile everything comes up so I guess it's indeed fixed.

    I would also suggest to change the behavior of classified threads where we can't edit the title after a while if possible. It would be great to remove this restriction, people wouldn't have to constantly post new threads just for updates.

    Search is working fine now, so is the option to find previous posts made by users. Although I still prefer the old dark theme.

    Hi, all - I believe the search function is fixed - could you test? Also, we should be able to fix the navigation by the end of the week. Sorry it's been so long and thank you for bearing with us.

    You should try my friend again -- I'm sure he could sort out any issue with a vBulletin.
