Hello I have a vbulletin forum and want to have a gallery for it, I was wondering if I should purchase photopost or photoplog from this site http://www.photoplog.com . Now I solely want it for my forum and don't know which one to get, I want to have it so that when users log into my forum they also log into the gallery, can photopost do this?

Lastly how long does the licensce last with photopost once you buy it? and is it hard to incorporate to your forums?

Thankyou.

IMHO, you should get photopost's vbGallery as it integrates tightly with vbulletin.

Yeah, but for an extra 30 bucks, I could get photopost pro and it will integrate good as well, what you think?

Photopost Pro is the more mature product with more features correct

Yeah, it looks very good and am not sure of which one I should purchase.

What is this "PhotoPost VB3 Enhance" ?, and how hard is it to install into my fourms, vbulletin?

vb3 enhanced means you have the option to load the vb3 headers footers and stylesheets over Photopost.

Install is pretty straight forward as in answering all the questions correctly. A little more difficult than installing vbgallery since Photopost Pro can be configured a number of ways.

If I purchase, will I get help on how to integrate photopost into my forums?

I dont think you will be able to use template conditionals in the pro version, which you can in vb gallery.

Sure you can if you write them correctly

The Pro Templates are nothing but html in php conditional clauses

I've been running both on two different forums for over a year and would choose vBGallery every time. It's a lot easier to use and all of our mods and editors prefer it to Photopost

Would this work?

<if condition="!is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 5)">

</if>

if ( $bbuserinfo['usergroupid'] != 5 )
{
something here
}

do you have to edit a .php file or is there a template editor for this?

You can place that in a template just make sure to escape your HTML with the proper echo statements

Where do you edit this template? Does PP have a template editor similar to VB?
