Sorry no. I deal with wordpress forum layouts and bb code. It is a Totally different animal than this forum.

I do not know vbulletin free plugins or what they have to offer for free at all.

Thanks IXL2Relax. I am posting here so I will see updates. I didn't realize at all that any of this was happening. Thanks Bert. You have a great thing here, and I have every confidence that you will work out the bugs.

Bert - Are you still working on this?

I don't know how many other forums may have previously used vPortal with vBulletin and then upgraded to a later version and lost the 'Active Threads' capability - but I have to believe we're not the only forum who experienced & noticed that loss... Some other extension of vBulletin may already provide that extended 'active threads' capability...


If all else fails with contacting vBulletin or reviewing other vBulletin extensions, please post a final request for help before giving up on the effort --- At that point, I would reluctantly try to dig deep enough into the situation to create a kludged solution outside the vBulletin software, with your help, of course...

Some times, brute force efforts can accomplish a sufficient solution where 'the developers' simply take no interest in providing what is needed...

I was not able to find a solution. This is kinda a hybrid board since the side board is vBPortal which is defunct. Only solution is to upgrade the entire forum to vBulletin Version 4. I am pondering this.

Does VB4 have a different 'Active Threads' function?

VB4 is a complete Content Management System. It is a major change.
