    What software is the macrumours frontend? its vbulletin at the back of course.. but at the front? I really like how the front is integrated well between the mediawiki and the blogs on the front few pages, what did you guys use to achieve this?

    I believe it's pretty much all a custom layout.

    That's correct. MacRumors has plenty of home-grown code and home-grown designs, including the news management system, media management system, Forum Spy, MacRumorsLive, and the iPhone+blog page.

    MacRumors has tinkered with vBulletin as well.

    MacRumors runs mostly broken software, at least for the past week or so. ;)

    As stated above, the front end is custom written and integrated with forums. On days like this, it feels like it's scotch-taped together... but it holds up :)

    Hmm...I assumed the whole thing was vBulletin since it is at the bottom of every page.
