Overview - vBulletin Show Case

Compelling content draws more guests to your site and encourages members to stay longer. DTO ShowCase frees you from keeping content fresh by empowering the site members to show off the objects of their passion.

ShowCase is permission based allowing site administrators to create ShowCase types and add components with a variety of attributes. Site members are granted permissions to use specific ShowCase types to create ShowCases featuring their pride and joys.

ShowCase creation and editing by site members is simple and easy to use. Using the User Control Panel members will find tools to create and manage their own vBulletin showcase. Image uploads are quick and intuitive using the Image Upload Wizard. bbCode support in text areas encourages member creativity and can be enabled to support YouTube videos. Members can choose to hide a ShowCase while “under construction” and can choose to accept comments from other site members

Members will find it easy to find other ShowCases by type, attribute or by a ShowCase owner’s user name. Both members and guests can browse ShowCases, sort-able by useful information such as, recent additions, last modified date, and number of views. Postbit and user profile integration insures that other site members are encouraged to create their own ShowCase or join a membership program that includes this feature.
