About This File

vBulletin 5 Connect provides unparalleled capabilities for building community websites. The software facilitates increased content creation, more engaging content discovery and simplified site management.


Simplified site set up and customization

The new Site Builder makes it easier than ever to build and manage a site. Customizable page templates, drag-and-drop configuration and in-line site editing simplify page layout. A variety of design themes can be easily selected.


Dynamic tools for content discovery

Customizable content modules provide enhanced content discovery, engaging users into deeper site visits. The vBulletin search has been re-architected to significantly improve the quality of its results, further facilitating content discovery.


Sleek new UI features activity stream and increased social engagement

Improved social functionality includes groups, new user profiles, comments functionality, an integrated messaging hub, social content curation, real-time updates and more.


Expanded photo and video capabilities

The new interface invites users to quickly post photos and video, expanding content on vBulletin sites. This media is then leveraged by being better integrated with the rest of a site's content. User profiles provide an engaging aggregation of all media posted by them.


Category-leading mobile optimization

The integrated mobile-optimized version ensures smartphone visitors will stay longer and return.

What's New in Version v5.7.5   See changelog



We have improved the handling of notifications. Upon deleting content, the system will automatically remove related notifications. Notifications will remain if the user has permission to view deleted content.


We have moved more inline Javascript to external files to enhance security handling. Furthermore, we have resolved several PHP syntax warnings and notices. If you encounter any issues in the AdminCP, please perform a hard refresh or clear your browser history.


In previous versions, a noindex meta tag could be placed on the rendered page when using a query string (e.g., domain.com/?post=1234). We have removed these tags from the content pages. The system will continue to add the canonical URL to prevent duplicate content warnings.

Rebuild Topic Information

The General Update tools include update to the Rebuild Topic Information tool. This tool will now update rebuild URLs based on current settings. Additionally, if a topic does not have a meta description, it will create one using the first 300 characters of the topic.

Additional Issues

  • Strip comments and whitespace from files in vb.phar
  • The RSS feed poster did not work correctly when run from vbcron.php
  • Clean up error handling in creating content
  • Email Addresses over 100 characters cause issues.
  • Header Ad Dialog is not constrained to the screen.
  • Inline mod menu does not have the shrink child class
  • An error was shown when double-clicking on a topic title
  • update vb_backup.sh
  • The Orphaned Topics tool has been removed.
  • Clean up auto post logic
  • Remove spamlog record when deleting a node
  • Adding a hashtag to a reply node results in it being stripped from the post.
  • Clean up set_time_limit
  • Move next/previous version calculation to the base class
  • vB_Utility_String fallback to iconv instead of failing when mbstring and iconv both enabled

Install / Upgrade Information

File Cleanup

With each version release, some files become obsolete. These files are mainly the Javascript Rollup files which are version stamped. However, we occasionally refactor PHP files and remove them from the distribution package. After upgrading your vBulletin system, you should delete any possible obsolete files. You can obtain more information on why this is needed and instructions on how to do this in this topic in the vBulletin 5 Installs & Upgrades forum.
