    DragonByte Technologies are proud to present InfoPanels v2: The most feature-packed Welcome Panel system for vBulletin, and the first Welcome Panel system for vBulletin 5!

    Why InfoPanels?

    Info Panels is another product from DragonByte Technologies, creators of vBActivity and vBShout. Info Panels allows you to display useful and interesting information in a much more user friendly way, allowing your members to access important areas of the forum, and important information, without having to go through different menu screens.

    The Welcome Panel displays all the information your users may want to see instantly when they log on, without having to go searching for it. A handy Module format means you don't have to fiddle with complex code in order to drop it on ANY page, you simply use the Site Manager natively in vBulletin 5!

    The Top X Stats portion of the software allows your users to keep track of whats going on in the forum almost in real time - perfect for boards with many forums which are hard to keep track of!

    Feature List
    Major Features
    Welcome Panel:
    A block above your normal forums, the Welcome Panel provides a range of stats important to your members such as their post count, % of total forum posts they have, new posts, new PMs etc.

    Top X Stats: This block lets you see a continuously updated feed of links to the latests posts made by your members, and many other things that users can choose between. This fits perfectly above a Shoutbox, for instance, to give people an easy view of new posts while they chat.

    vBulletin Cache Integration: Further reduce the load from the Top X Stats by integrating InfoPanels with vBulletin 5's cache, ensuring that manual refreshes don't cause additional server load.
