Bossip wanted a place for their readers to continue the discussion from their blog.
Front End Description
I had worked with this client before with their WordPress theme so when customizing their vBulletin forum, I was already familiar with their design and layout. The client wanted it to look almost exactly like their WordPress site, so I reused most of their existing elements and then customized vBulletin to make it fit in with their existing design.
Back End Description
The client wanted some additional SEO (search engine optimization) so I added in some custom plugins and tweaks.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
vBulletin is a great product to work with. Usually I work with open source bulletin boards like phpBB and bbPress – but vBulletin is also another great piece of software to consider when looking at bulletin boards.
