View Full Version : Questions to switch from albinator to photopost

November 2nd, 2004, 05:05 PM
Ive had many problems with my albinator software... mainly due to the lack of support on win platform so I have a few questions as Im looking for switching to your software...

a) Do you have tested photopost on win 2003 server?
b) My site is intended for people who have their own galleries, but every gallery is private (meaning there is no community area in which all can see other users' pictures), is there a way to do that in photopost?
c) My site has a Paypal option so users pay for membership, can I have that with your software?
d)Im looking forward to have a "order prints" feature, is it possible?

thanks in advance

1) I'm aware ofusers using Win2003 with no problems; we aren't OS specific in any of our calls.
2) PhotoPost is generally geared toward public galleries with support for individual private galleries; you can configure it as you want and users can simply select to make their albums private.
3) We do not have a PayPal Integration at this time.
4) We are working with a vendor on providing this options.

Thanks for the quick answer...

So on question 3, is there any way to charge for the suscription other than paypal? could you guys give me some support in order to make a hack to have paypal working with photopost?

On question 4, do you have a possible release date for this feature?

You could use vB's internal payment system to do that; but other than that you would have to contract with our developers to work on that solution. We do not support hacks/mods through our support system.

I do not have a date.

Im back here... Is there any membership-payment gateway at this time?

I looked at the registration feature in VBulletin and I want to know if I can use a different membership fee with each type of usergrupo set up in Photopost?

Thanks in advance.

There is no fee-based membership element to PhotoPost; you would still need to use vBs system which allows subscriptions which can be set to place users into specific usergroups.

one last question... will it run with IIS6? or does it only run with apache?

It will run with any of the web servers that supports PHP.
