Hi,

I am interested in buying the gallery script. It looks very nice. Just a couple of questions:

1) Right now I have my forum and main site on different site/FTP accounts, but they are both on the same dedicated server. Ex: The forum is located at http://forums.mydomain.com and the main site at http://www.mydomain.com. Is it possible for me to install the gallery on my main site? Or would I have to move the forum to a directory on the main site (/forums/) for the gallery to work? I don't want to install the gallery under http://forums.mydomain.com/

2) I am also interested in the Links script also. It would be nice if there is some sort of discount if I order both the gallery and links at the same time.

3) $19.99 renewal fee is a bit expensive I think. It would be great if you can lower it, to maybe $10.

That's all. Keep up the good work!

hmm... I can't seem to edit my above post. Is edit post disabled?

Anyway, one more question:

4) I assume the gallery script will use my forum's styles?

I think it is only available for a few minutes.

That would be correct.

1). Yes, it will work fine as long as it's installed on the same server as your forum.
That's good. I assume it's the same case for vBadvanced CMPS and the Links script?

Thanks for the reply. :)

I am not familiar with PhotoPost. What are the main differences between the two scripts and how is this gallery better?

I plan to order a gallery script within a week or two. :)

the first difference is PP is over $100.
I have an older version of PP and used both on seperate forums and I am getting gallery from here on paypay. vbgallery is easier to install/configure and the support is far better.

Don't forget total lack of any sort of real intergration :)

Ok, I have been playing with the admin panel of both for a bit. It does look like PhotoPost has more features now, but I am sure vBa Gallery will have more features in the near future. :)

Is it possible to re-order images in a gallery, just like re-ordering smilies in vB? I tried the "View Images" link in the admin panel but got a Page Not Found error.

Also, is it easy to give the gallery a different layout from the forum? I don't think I want the gallery to look exactly like my forum... probably more like the main site.

Thanks!
