John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Major Site Wide Update 4/3/2018

Recommended Posts

vBulletin 5.4.1 is now available to licensed customers.

 

Third-Party Authorization

The login/authorization system has been reworked to allow third-party logins beyond Facebook. This is a modular system and can be expanded via the Package system in vBulletin. This will allow sites to create custom authentication systems that fit the needs of their users. We've included Twitter OAuth as a working example of how to use the system. Users can connect their accounts to multiple third-party sites.

 

Twitter Authentication

vBulletin can now connect to Twitter's OAuth system to allow users to login. Once configured in the AdminCP, you can allow users to login to your site using Twitter. During the first login, if the user does not have a vBulletin account, they will be directed to the registration screen to create one. After that time the user can use their Twitter credentials to log into the system regularly.

 

Quick Twitter Configuration

This is a quick setup for configuring Twitter Login within vBulletin 5.4.1

- If you do not already have a twitter account, you need to create one. https://twitter.com

- Create an app for your twitter account. https://apps.twitter.com/app/new

- Fill in the "Name", "Description", "Website", and "Callback URL" fields.

- For the "Callback URL" field, it should be {forumurl}/twitterlogin/auth_callback (e.g.

https://yourdomain.com/yourforum/twi.../auth_callback )

- Check App Settings Go to the application settings (e.g. https://apps.twitter.com/app/12345/settings where 12345 references the app created in 2)

and check "Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter"

- In your AdminCP go to Settings -> Options -> Thirdparty Login Options

- Enable Twitter Login

- Enter in your Consumer Key (API KEY) and Consumer Secret (API Secret) values obtained from Twitter.

 

See http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-18253 for more information.

 

CSS Gradient Backgrounds

Continuing our effort to allow easier style customizations, we have replaced the image based gradients in vBulletin 5 with CSS Gradients. This is controlled by existing Style Variable. Gradients are an extension of the Background Style Variables. Gradients can be combined with background colors and images to create unique effects and can be applied to any element. Users can choose the type of gradient (e.g. linear, radial), the direction of the gradient, plus two colors (start and end). More advanced gradients can be created using your style's additional CSS template. To learn about CSS Gradients please visit https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/..._CSS_gradients.

 

The new options on Background Style Variables are:

- Gradient Type: Linear, Radial, Repeating Linear Gradient, and Repeating Radial Gradient

- Gradient Direction: To Top, To Top Right, To Right, To Bottom Right, To Bottom, To Bottom Left, To Left, and To Top Left,

- Gradient Start Color: Uses the standard color palette tool. Accepts the same color values as any color field with the Style Variable system.

- Gradient End Color: Uses the standard color palette tool. Accepts the same color values as any color field with the Style Variable system.

 

Post Moderation

Post Moderation Permissions have been updated. The logic for "Require Moderation for Posts" was backward and caused issues with inheritance. This has been updated. The permission is now labeled "Skip Moderation for Posts". The value would be Yes for those who should be able to post directly and No for those you want to moderate. The duplicate permission of "Follow Channel Moderation Rules" has been removed from the system. These changes bring this permission in line with inheritance and enforce that a Yes overrides a No when a user is in multiple usergroups. If you moderate user posts, please review these permissions after the upgrade.

 

Search Results

A number of items could appear in search results that shouldn't. These include private messages and visitor messages. While users only see the items they have permission to see, this is confusing. Often these linked to the wrong location as well. This has been resolved and these items should not show up in search results. In addition, Media Albums should properly link to the user's profile instead of the /special/albums channel.

 

Removed Files

A number of unused image files have been removed from the download package. You can find the list here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-18206

 

Other Issues

- Navigation Tabs can wrap at smaller screen sizes.

- Custom Usergroup Permissions Sanitized out from AdminCP

- Responsive: Top Pagination on Search Results redirects to forum home.

- Navigation bar selected tab URL-based matching fails when using absolute URLs

Each update affects the website and its end users. For example, we are now given the option of allowing people to register and log in using Facebook or Twitter accounts. With a push of a button those accounts provide information which logs them into this site. I have decided not to implement those features at this time. Mainly because it causes quite the panic when people lose access to this site because they deactivated their Facebook or Twitter accounts.

 

The most welcome change I see in this update is a fix for the profile media albums. When people posted media in their created profile albums it would show in the latest topics but clicking or following the link would show the wrong page. This has been corrected.

 

We are experiencing several bugs which end users may not notice. For example, when using "indent" in the advanced editor spacing around the indented paragraphs disappears upon publishing. Hopefully next update will fix this. There's really too much to list, but each update corrects numerous amounts of bugs found by some but not all end users.

 

God bless,

William
