View Full Version : vbgallery or pro?

September 1st, 2008, 07:04 PM
I currently run vb pro on my website, though I haven't updated it in a very very long time. I think it is 4.8c, so we're talking years ago. I had the photopost script almost completely rewritten to 'bridge' it to vb, which was definately not available back then.

I am going to upgrade now, and I am curious about photopost pro vs. vbgallery.

If complete integration is my focus, is there a preference between the two?

I do not want to loose any features, and frankly the main reason to renew is to get some of the new features pro offers.

I suppose my question is:
Does photopost pro integrate as completely and seamlessly as vbgallery?

If using IE 8.0 beta 2, none of the links above my post work, like 'thread tools' etc.... Had to go into IE 7 compatibility mode to get it to give me the dropdown. Something to consider

We integrated with vb in pro 4.8 fine back then so not sure what you mean

If you have issues with some beta browser then the issues would be in that browser and something they would need to squash as far as your forum

Pro integrates with vb as we state we pull the header footer and style of the forum just like vbgallery does. Now vbgallery admin and templates are in vb admin whereas pro is as always has its own admin panel template system etc

There are some vb examples noted in our examples

thanks found the link i was looking for

was kinda hidden

I went ahead and renewed my access to the members area through paypal, though it still says not renewed. I've even cleared my browsers cache, no joy.

Am I doing something wrong?

Just trying to download the most recent vs. of pro which I own a license for.

I have the latest PhotoPost Pro installed with vBulletin. Now, I see that the forum-integration is better with vBGallery. Is it possible to show the latest pictures in the forum index page, or is this easier to accomplish with vBGallery?

If not, I'm going to convert to vBGallery.

Very easy we have a file in our main code to do that.

Here is a plugin for that file
