I understand where you are coming from Chuck, and my comments weren't meant to be slamming photopost, merely constructive for future versions.
The fact is, there are a whole lot of people operating vB
based forums that aren't programmers. I'm one of them. I have had engineering training in College, and have taken computer courses, but that was 20 years ago when Windows was a pipe dream and most computers looked like a text Unix interface. The long and short, what skill I have is from operating a vB
based site over the last 5 years.
This is the first experience I've had with photopost. I had tried at one time to integrate Coppermine to my forums but wasn't able to pull it off like I'd hoped. I just thought that this software would have been a little easier to integrate, and for what it's worth, it's easier than coppermine. Still, in general I thought it could have been made a little more seemless. I've been using vBAdvanced for 3 or 4 years now. Still have a forum with 1. something on it. I was impressed when I built DON these past few weeks that the 3. vB
advanced was much easier to integrate and worked a lot better.
I suppose it's kind of like buying a Kubota front end loader for my Kubota tractor v's a Bush Hog brand end loader. I'd expect the Bush Hog brand to require more drilling, welding, and adapting than the Kubota version would to install it.
