well your posting to an old thread 5.0 has been out for along time
1. the messenging system is our own and we integrate with 23 different products. It works fine but in the future we could try sending PM with vb
it all depends. Our pm system is tied in with email so you can elect to PM and email a user so I see no reason why ours would be overlooked.
2. If your using vb
there is the ability to show a photo block on the forum as that is the ONLY enhanced integration but if your using other forum products your talking about a forum mod. That is outside the supported product. We support the level of integration we state on our site.
3. This as always depends on how you have things setup right? If your classifieds in vb4 doesnt use the same style header etc of the forum you have things setup wrong. Main Index - Reeftalk Classifieds
That is a test setup and it definately is part of the vb4 forum using the header style link on navigation bar block of ads in the forum index and classifieds information in the user profile. It is as integrated as a system gets.
What I am currently working on is a plugin system for our products like vb
uses so you can plugin code define variables and make hacks without altering the actual core product. That way like vb
upgrading is easy.
