How to get rid of “Powered by vBulletin” in the homepage title of a vBulletin forum?

by Yang Yang on October 28, 2009

By default the homepage of all freshly installed vBulletin forum will have a title trailing of “ – Powered by vBulletin”. While it’s forbidden to remove the copyright notice from the footer if you haven’t bought the anonymous license, you are allowed to wipe out this title trailing.

How does one do that?

First log into the AdminCP, of course, and then

  1. Open the Languages & Phrases submenu and click Search in Phrases.
  2. In the “Search for Text” box enter “powered by vbulletin” and click “Find”.
  3. In the searching results, you will have a variable named “x_powered_by_vbulletin”.
  4. Click “Edit” button of this variable and simply erase the “ – Powered by vBulletin” part, leaving just “{1}”.

You are done! Now there will be no trailing string of “Powered by vBulletin” in the forum title any more.

Update: now the powered by stuff is got rid of in official releases, know how to change the homepage title to accommodate more keywords, check out here.
