    How to install vB5 manually
    Mark.B
    These instructions show you how to manually configure the two config files that come with vBulletin 5.

    1. Download the newest vB5 release from the members' area. https://members.vbulletin.com

    2. Unzip the files and go to the "upload" folder.

    3. You need to rename this file:

    /config.php.bkp

    To:

    /config.php

    Then, you need to rename this file:

    /core/includes/config.php.new

    Add custom forum icons to vB5
    Mark.B
    Currently the forum icons on vBulletin 5 are sprites...this makes them rather tricky to change effectively.

    If you add the below code to your css_additional.css template, as long as you have your icons uploaded somewhere, you can change them.

    Taken from code posted by Glenn Vergara at www.vbulletin.com

    Code:
    /* start custom forum icons */
    /* Forums */
    .forum-list-container .forum-item .cell-forum .icon {
    background: transparent url("http://www.path/to/your/oldposticon.png")

    How to fix or add back Mark Channels Read
    Mark.B
    By default, "Mark Channels Read" is present in the navbar, but it only works on 'Forum' pages.
    As of 5.2.3 it is no longer present AT ALL in new installs.

    Here's how to make it work on any page if it does already exist. (If it doesn't exist, instructions for adding it back are at the bottom, but you still need to do this part!)

    First, go to AdminCP > Style Manager, and from your chosen style, select "Add New Template" from the dropdown.

    How to enable pinch and zoom on mobile devices
    Mark.B
    To make the vB5 default style "zoomable" on mobile devices:

    Find this in the header template:
    Code:
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1, maximum-scale=1" />
    Change the "maximum-scale" value to a higher number, such as 3:
    Code:
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1, maximum-scale=3" />

    How to add forum names to Today's Posts
    Mark.B
    One major thing that has been missing in vB5, has been the name of the forum in the Today's Posts / New Posts results. You are told the name of the topic, who started it, when it was started, who made the most recent post, etc...but you are not told what forum it's in.

    For many, this is essential, as they only want to read threads in forums they are interested in.

    Well, here's how to add this back in.

    First, add this to the template css_additional.css
