Want more interesting BB code for your vBulletin forum that merely the default, including tags for things as wide ranging as definition lists, videos and fancy effects? Well you're in luck, since this mod has every single BB code I have released on vBulletin.org over all time, which should at least triple the amount of functionality members can use in their posts.
