I like to buy vBulletinForum and intergrate it with photopost gallery. What do I have to do?
Thanks in advance

Well what exactly do you mean by that comment?
You would have to buy licenses for both products. You then install the forum then you install the gallery.

I already have photopost gallery and running, I like to add vB forum to the gallery

Maybe reading this will help

Thanks, what I mean actually, which one do I need to buy?
October 30th, 2009, 07:35 AM
What do you mean which one do you need to buy? You have stated you own a photopost license right? You would need to buy a vBulletin license if you dont own that.
Correct me if I am not following here. ;)

Do I need suite or classic to intergrate with photopost? and yes, I mean the licence

well we integrate with vb3 which is there product released right now
They are pre selling version 4 which we still have yet to see and integrate with.
I cant tell you how to order there stuff as it appears all I can order is the pre order version 4 so you might actually want to talk to them.
October 30th, 2009, 07:58 AM
talk to you later, I'm bussy at the moment. Thanks!

Okay well I beleive your questions have been answered so enjoy your weekend.

Thanks, I was at work earlier today. I'll talk to the vB-people.
enjoy your weekend as well

yeah I dont see how to order vb3 anymore so most likely you might need to hold off and order vb4 and wait for it to come out and us to support it.
October 30th, 2009, 01:18 PM
I guess so... I´ll wait and see :)
October 30th, 2009, 04:43 PM
Yeah at least thats what there site seems to suggest.
November 1st, 2009, 08:44 AM
Well what i understood, you can buy vbulletin 4.00 now, getting a discount..
you will have to wait until vb4 comes out to be able to download it though..
BUT you can immediately download 3.84 pl1
(At least that is what I understood, so better double check)

Possibly there site is a bit vague about alot of things. But yes that appears to be answer. I have a new license number for vbulletin. I did the 130.00 suite thing since I was an existing customer. I can download vbulletin 3.8.4 it appears for my new vb 4.0 license.
November 1st, 2009, 09:53 AM
same here, but I'm not 100% sure for new customers.. like Anja seems to be..
November 1st, 2009, 09:58 AM
yeah well given that I can download vbulletin 3.84 with my new license that should be the case but it is quite vague indeed over there. I just hope the wait for 4.0 is not forever. I put out the money since it was relatively cheap. I like the look of the cms so we shall see.

Vbulletin has extended the presales timeframe and has posted new FAQ conserning pricing and other stuff..
Vbulletin-New Faqs (http://www.vbulletin.com/faq.php#faq-84)
November 2nd, 2009, 04:39 AM
Yeah looks like they are trying to ramp up sales out of the flack of there new licensing policies.

What I would like to know; If I buy vBulletin forumlicence to intergrate with photopost, who will help me on this? I mean, I really have no idea how it should be done. Will photopost take care of the intergration or should vBulletin take care of it? Is it possible at all? Photopost gallery already has some registered users and quiet a few uploads.
December 4th, 2009, 01:54 PM
neither company would specifically is going to take care of importing content into the forum directly without some sort of added fee.
You can get us or vbulletin to do there install of the forum software. I can tell you we are cheaper on the install. You still need to purchase a license from them.
The photopost integrating into vb would happen if you purchase an install from us.
Now the extra twist here is there would also be a small fee to download and import user data from photopost into vbulletin with there importer script which is another external application that needs to be downloaded and installed and run.
You can inquire through the contact us link for full pricing details.

vBulletin will not install into photopost, they told me so today. So if I understand correctly; I'll buy a vBulletin forumlicence and you will install it into the photopost that I have allready running. Final question: Will the members of my photopostgallery after installing vBulletin be able to use vB the forum without a seperate registration? Do they have automaticly access to both, photopost as wel as vB forum? If you tell me 'yes, they have' I'll contact you very soon. regards...

vbulletin does not install into photopost correct
photopost integrates into the vb login
As noted you really need to use the contact us link to get pricing. The steps are this though
1. vb would have to be installed
2. the vb impex system which is a separate program would need to be installed and ran to import your photopost users into vb.
3. photopost would have to be reinstalled to integrate with vbulletin
4. There is a script here also that needs to be ran to realign userid's when you switch forum integrations.
