vBulletin (vB) is a proprietary Internet forum software package developed by vBulletin Solutions, Inc. It is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database server. If you got stuck in the vBulletin mode, it's probably because you clicked on D0ge's thread that consists suspicious link of an image. Here's the solution:


Open this (http://www.rtsoft.com/forums/member.php?144508-D0GE).
Scroll down and click "Full Site".
Try to clear cache and cookies, log out from forums and restart your browser.


Some forumers also put the link to their signature, for now, go to your "Settings" and go to your "General Settings" and uncheck this.

You can also disable images completely, which should hopefully fix the problem in all places, however it will make it harder to read/understand legitimate threads with images attached.


I can't see the replies in thread!
You have a choice over how you view threads. When you're in a thread, look at the top bar. On the right hand side you'll see 'Display Mode'. Click on this and it lets you change how posts are ordered.

You have three choices:

Linear Mode - posts are displayed chronologically, usually from oldest to newest. Posts are shown in a flat mode so that many posts can be viewed simultaneously. It is possible to change the ordering by changing your preferences in the User CP

Threaded Mode - a tree is shown along with every post. This shows you the relationship each post has to the others. It's easy to see who responded to whom. Only one post is shown at a time. By clicking on a single post in the post tree, the page will show that post and all posts made in response to it.

Hybrid Mode - This is a mixture of the linear and threaded modes. The post tree is displayed as in the threaded mode, but many posts are shown at the same time as in the linear modes.

If you got stuck in threaded mode, change the display to linear mode.

D0GE put that url in as an image.

I have a feeling D0GE won't be the last to do that.
Just wait until somebody puts that in their signature.

Additionally, you don't have to fill your ignore list with people who have put the 'image' in their signature; A simple solution to this is to turn signatures off completely. (Only until this annoying fad has died down, of course.)

You can find this by clicking on "Settings" and clicking "General settings".

If people make posts containing the 'image', then it's reasonable enough to ignore them.

(You can also disable images completely, which should hopefully fix the problem in all places, however it will make it harder to read/understand legitimate threads with images attached.)

This is smart. Thanks, m8!

Some people put D0GE's forum ruiner in there signature which makes the forum automatically go to VBULLETIN.
