What add-ons do you use with your VBulletin forums?

And where's a good place that lists the available ones?

vbulletin.org ?

vB.org being by far the best resource but the others have custom hacks not found on vB.org.

I use
Myspace style profiles (multiple hacks integrated)
Auto pinger (pings services like a blog when I post in a specific forum)

And a bunch of admin side mods to make my job easier.

Cool, I was looking at the Image Host. I was hoping to integrate wtih CopperMine but I already have that running on another domain and don't want to erase the users/pics and have to start over.

The 4 main ones I've used are:

Welcome Headers (free)
vbgeek autolinker (paid)
Photopost pro (paid)
vblogetin (paid)

I've also used a Google adsense revenue sharing hack from at vbulletin.org

Oh yeah I use GARS (paid)

There are so many free gallery plugins for VB I'd never use a paid one. But how is that vblogetin working out for you? Does it auto ping update services? Was it really easy to integrate?

Integration was easy, I am not actually using it as a blogger, so I haven't paid much attention to blogging features. But it is still in development and since it is paid I imagine they won't lapse on updates like can happen with free scripts.

My users like it.

What I'd like to see is a plugin that allows me to subscribe to certain users, and get an RSS feed from that (for new threads started by those users). It would save me alot of time. Anyone know if this exists?

A little stalker-ish, but it's pretty easy to set up shortcuts to get all post by x user.

I found a plugin called vB Ad Management (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=131150) - I actually got it working after using this adsense vbulletin integration (http://www.websitepublisher.net/forums/showthread.php?t=5846) idea from Chris.

I meant to post that I'd fixed it before.

I use:

vbseo (http://www.vbseo.com) US $149 I like it, but I can't say how much it's helped. The company behind it sure seems solid.
Geek Auto-Linker (http://www.thevbgeek.com/geekmart.php?do=displayproduct&id=2) 14.95. I love it. Really helps for a forum like mine. The developer seems nice.
Googlemaps (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123148). Free. From vbulletin.org. Fun, but it's not used much by the community.
Personal sticky (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=102535). Free. From vbulletin.org. I love this one, but it hasn't been updated for the latest version of vB.

I've got a couple more (I think), but those are the main ones.

I found a plugin called vB Ad Management (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=131150)That vB Ad Management (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=131150) looks great. Thanks!

I can't find it :( What is that VB Add-On that lets you add a question to the user registration page??


06-25-2008, 12:07 PM
not an add on, just a custom registration user profile field
