View Full Version : Photopost Pro and vBGallery?

July 20th, 2006, 09:48 AM
Okay guys this is so complicated. What exactly is Photopost Pro and Photopost vBGallery? Are they different products from each other? Which of them is the best to use? And which has the most, best features ever?

And I wonder if Photopost Pro can be integrated with vBulletin 3.5.4?

Yes Photopost Pro integrates nicely with vbulletin 3.5x

vbgallery is essentially a lite Photopost Pro to coin a phrase

Here is a feature set comparison

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

I think I'll just go for Photopost Pro since it has more features and can be integrated with vB 3.5 too but the problem is it doesn't use the vB template system.

Multimedia/Video Support: vBGallery does support the uploading of videos, but the comparison page says that is does not. This is a bit misleading.

Actually the multimedia might need to be expanded into two lines. While vbgallery can allow a video upload it does not play then inline so might need two lines to represent yes and no.

vBGallery also uses vB breadcrumbs whereas PhotoPost uses its own. :)

who's aware of the most up to take hack/mod/product that allows vbgallery to support inline video? While PhotoPost Pro is an awesome product (I've purchased and am using it now) it doesn't seem that it will fill my specific websites' needs as it doesn't allow separate galleries to use separate vb templates/skins as spoken about above in this thread ^ ^ ^ -

Why do I need separate skins in each gallery? Well each gallery is meant for a different "genre" of video game, like horror, sports, shooter, rpg, etc, and each forum/gallery that I have setup right now has its own entirely separate custom skin. Either way I think I'll be buying vbgallery but first I want to know who has the best inline video hack, I saw one mentioned in this forum but it was dated from 2005 so I'm assuming something better or more updated is out now?... if someone doesn't mind letting me know I'd greatly appreciate it; I need to get this website finished before I ship out to Iraq for the U.S. Army in April. Thanks a ton! :cool: -Dave

And what does the purchase comparison page mean when it says that it has, "Individual cateogry header/headtags/footer settings" for PhotoPost Pro and not vBGallery? I understand that photopost pro only allows for one integrated vbulletin skin, BUT when photopost pro advertises itself as being able to use individual category header and footer settings does this mean I can insert my specialised css header and footer information from my different vBulletin skins? If someone could clarify what the 'individual category header and footer settings are I'd also appreciate it! If someone understands what I'm trying to do here (use a different vBulletin skin for each different gallery category), it'd be extremely helpful to get some input/insight/ideas as to what i can possibly do, use my photopost pro, or just buy vbgallery?... Thanks again -Dave

When we say that Photopost can have different header footers styles per category we are talking about the Photopost header system not when using the vbulletin header system. Therefore in vbulletin enhanced integration you are simply going to use whatever style vb displays by default for the user.

Yes Photopost Pro allows you to upload video and play it inline
