vBulletin JS Min

August 8th, 2007 11 comments

I realized today that vBulletin’s Javascript was just too bulky and didn’t really need to be, especially when you have no plans to customize it yourself. So I grabbed all the packages of 3.6.x and minimized all the Javascript. In most cases the Javascript files are 50% of the original, which saves bandwidth and speeds up the loading of your forum.

Install:

  • Backup all the .js files from the clientscript directory under your forum root.
  • Copy the files from zip file that matches your version of vBulletin into the clientscript directory.
  • Done!

Download:

vBulletin 3.6.0
vBulletin 3.6.1
vBulletin 3.6.2
vBulletin 3.6.3
vBulletin 3.6.4
vBulletin 3.6.5
vBulletin 3.6.6
vBulletin 3.6.7PL1
vBulletin 3.6.8

Multiple versions of IE on one PC

August 3rd, 2007 No comments

I’m always getting grief from my managers about not testing in IE6, which is hard when IE7 is installed on all machines these days. I recently found a little install tool which allows you to run multiple versions of IE on the same machine. It doesn’t fully install IE, just the dll’s and uses dll redirection to trick windows into running an older version of IE.

Although it’s not perfect, it’s a lot easier than running a virtual PC for each version.

The install can be found here: http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE
