View Full Version : Newbie confused over PhotoPost/vB3?

I just purchased hours ago a license for Photopost. I went to the main sales site, and it seems they are talking about PhotoPost integrated into existing vBulletin sites.

So I bought the license, paid my host to load it, I now get into the support forums since I can seem to find a user manual as of yet like vBulletin has, and now I am trying to figure out how to have the PhotoPost stuff right in my vBulletin just like all the examples they showed.

Now I see something called vB3, and I can't tell what that is, if it just means a vBulletin with PhotoPost added, or is something entirely different.

Then I run into PhotoPost enhanced by vB3....geez, this is confusing.

I would like my new, as of yet not open vBulletin forum to look like the default look, but within the top nav bar a link to the "Gallery", and near the bottom the the random images, or whatever you define the list as.

So did I screw up and buy the wrong product or something? I do want the ability to do the video thing.

Here (http://www.scubapost.net/forums) is one example of the general idea of what I am after.

And where is a proper user manual to integrate it into a vBulletin and admin it?

http://www.photopost.com/support is the manual

Now integrating with vb is easy when you install you select the vb3enhanced integration etc now you have not shown a site link but I assume your photopost is installed correctly.

Now what else your trying to do has to do with vbulletin not photopost but there are threads to assist. You can add a link in vb by going to your styles editor and adding a link in the navbar template to the gallery. To install a photo block in vb of photos you can read this mod thread on how to tweak this

Actually the Photopost stuff doesn't show up at all on my vBulletin. I had our serving company install it, so I would have no idea if they selected a vB3 enhancement integration option within the installation file folder.

And our serving host e-mailed me and said the Photpot forum was up and running on our vBullettin

They don't seem to be integrated at all as I can't see nor find a link from the vBulletin site to the Photopost add-on.

Where does one find the vB3 enhancement integration option mentioned?

That views fine vb3enhanced means we load the vb header footer stylesheet over our program and can use the post icons etc

As noted nothing in our program is going to modify your vbulletin. You need to add a link to the gallery in the navbar of vb as I had stated above and you ca go to that one thread which explains how to show a photo block on the forum
