Easy to use Forum Rules system for vBulletin, with some nice advanced options.

- BB codes enabled
- Option to force users to accept Forum Rules before can post anything
1. Import XML file (as product): AdminCP > Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]
2. OPTIONAL (for some customized styles)
Open template "navbar" and add "$cyb_frules_link" after "vbphrase[user_cp]</a></td>"
3. OPTIONAL (to add 'reset acceptance status' to different place than default one)
Open template "MEMBERINFO" and add "$cyb_frules_force" wherever you wish. Don't forget to disable "Show Automatically "Force to Accept Again" Option in Member Profile?" in ACP.
To set options:
Go to: AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Cyb - Advanced Forum Rules
NOTE: You can check which users are (not) accepted Forum Rules by running db queries:
Run queries through: AdminCP > Execute SQL Query
List users who had accepted Rules:
SELECT * FROM `user` WHERE cfrules_read_status > 0;
List users who hadn't accepted Rules:
SELECT * FROM `user` WHERE cfrules_read_status = 0;
