Chuck, not to be an antagonist, but -
I wonder if the PP licenses would be outselling the vbGallery licenses so much if vbGallery were to continue to improve and have more features added at the same rate PP does. Ever since vbGallery was bought out the development rate of the script has not been the same as PP - I'm assuming because All Enthusiast, Inc doesn't want it to compete with PP, the more expensive flagship product. After 2 years it doesn't even show up on the Purchasing page alongside the other PP products:
It's very unfortunate for us vb clients too because vbGallery is so much more integrated with our forum yet it probably won't end up being developed as much as it would by someone else because of a conflict with the more expensive PP product. And the product we really would like to see have more features added likely won't because of this.
Don't get me wrong, I do like how powerful PP is but I wouldn't move back due to how integrated vbGallery is with vb. It's so much easier to modify vbGallery to do things with vb that PP just can't do as easily. I just wish there was an alternative Classifieds solution similar to what vbGallery is to vb.
