I found it best to create a new DB for the classifieds, and then use your user DB for your forum software, i tried it a couple other ways and ran into all sorts of issues... when setting it up, it gives you 2 places to connect to a DB...
Is it safe to assume that support will not be given on this issue?
I just need to know if I should go ahead with my purchase of an alternate product to replace this non-working product which is nonetheless sold as an out-of-beta, stable and functioning product.
It also seems to be an unsupported product, now that I've purchased it.
Just a followup would be nice. A word or two.
I did spend a good chunk of my money on this script in good faith and can't even install the latest version of it due to what appears to me to be an acknowledged bug which is also being experienced by at least a couple of other purchasers.
I do understand the concept of being "busy", but as I said, a simple word or two indicating tacit acknowledgement of the problem and "we're working on it" -- is minimally expected by a normal purchaser of a non-functioning product.

Deltajo, Are you going to use PPC with the ubb.threads package or will it eb a standalone or use another bulletin board? It apepars this problem is due to a break in communication when trying to set it up to use the 'threads userbase instead of it's own. With the ever changing code and updates of other non photopost products, it can be difficult to tie up all the loose ends. That coupled with 'threads being out in beta form (current release is 6.5 b4) can throw a wrench into the works. I'm a beta tester for threads and I know how much changed since the last release.
I'm using my UBBThreads 6.4.1 as my database -- which has been around for many many months now, and I know PhotoPost products are fully compatible with it since I have used PhotoPost Pro with it and the support people here all have too -- they're Threads users too and are more than familiar with the products being used together.
As you said yourself, there seems to be something wrong with the script in that it fails to connect with UBBThreads installations. Note that PhotoPost Classifieds is sold as being compatible with UBBThreads 6.x. I have not attempted to install using any beta versions of anything.
I know it can be difficult in any case, and I'm very understanding and patient. All I'm asking for is the common courtesy due me as a patient understanding customer who bought a product in good faith and has been nothing less than perfectly polite in asking for help.
I will contact you privately, and thanks for your help.
