Currently I run phpbb integrated with Photopost. I'm going to purchase V-Bulletin and they informed me that they can upgrade from my phpbb, however, I wanted to know if it's possible to get Photopost upgrade to integrate with the new bulletin board once it's updated or does something need to be re-installed?

PP does integrate with vB (of course); however, during the upgrade the quesiton is do the userids change during the conversion? If so, then you would need to run a script to update userids - assuming you are running PP 5.0 or better (pre-5.0 wont convert easily).

Chuck has a script which can be used to reset userids if its needed.

I wasn't told that they would change, so it appears that this move might be smoother than I thought.

Okay, Chuck really is the "master" of this program!
