View Full Version : VB Gallery in SMF
October 30th, 2009, 10:01 AM
I have just changed forum software from VB to SMF and would like to retain all the images (3,500) in the old gallery, is there any way I can convert them?

vbGallery is not compatible with SMF.
Only Photopost Pro is compatible with SMF. You would need to install Photopost Pro to integrate with SMF and then you would need to use the vbGallery to Photopost Pro import script located in our photopost pro imports forum to import your old vbGallery data to Photopost Pro.

No sorry there is not. You appear to have bought vbgallery along time ago either from vbadvanced or when we initially got it and offered it for the same pricing as them years ago.
The vbgallery and Photopost Pro licenses have been merged for awhile meaning users have the choice of using one or the other if they bought a gallery license at normal price. There is only one license and thats Photopost Pro Gallery software which grants you access to either one.
Since you do not have access to PhotoPost Pro you would need to purchase a Photopost Pro license to be able to do as you wish and integrate with SMF.

Correct you bought at a substancially reduced price of $59.00 the vbGallery only license which was when we aquired the product. The licenses where merged a year later.
You do not own a PhotoPost Pro license and you have now switched to a forum software only supported by PhotoPost Pro. Remember vbGallery only works with vBulletin. To run a gallery on SMF you must have a gallery script capable of running with that forum.
We have all the tools for you to migrate vbGallery to Pro but you must own a Pro license and install it to integrate with SMF before you can transfer old vbGallery data to Pro.
