So you spent over $200 on your vBulletin license, purchased web hosting, and installed vBulletin on your server. You’ve done everything possible to make sure that your community will be a success, right? Not quite. You’re definitely on the right track, but you just have the basics down. Did you know that you can add a lot of neat and useful features to your vBulletin forum by plugging in more bits of software?
These pieces of software are called mods, and there are thousands of them out there! There are mods that allow your users to chat with each other in real-time, strengthening your forum’s sense of community. There are other mods that intelligently place advertisements between forum posts, increasing your forum’s revenue. The possibilities are endless!
Mods make a community stand out from the crowd. They set a community apart by adding more features and improving user experience. While it is possible to run a good community with a plain vBulletin installation, nearly all of the largest and most successful communities make use of vBulletin mods like these. From our experience working with hundreds of vBulletin customers, we’ve come to the conclusion that those forum owners who understand the importance of leveraging mods build stronger communities.
However, there are thousands of mods out there to choose from! Without investing a great deal of time in researching which mods will best suit your needs, it is practically impossible to select the mods most appropriate for your community. We often get questions like these from our vBulletin clients:
- Does my forum have enough mods?
- How do I know which mods work best?… they all seem to do similar things.
- I have specific needs for my community, but how can I find time to research and evaluate all of the mods out there?
- Which mods will be safe for my forum and for my server’s performance?
- New mods just keep coming out everyday… how can I keep up with them all?
