  • V-Bull

    Hello all, congrads on a great product. I keep seeing many going from phpBB to V-bull lately. I was wondering what the sudden draw is. What are the newest mods, and improvements making it more attractive recently?

    I personally believe it is that vBulletin constantly redefines and sets new standards for the Bulletin Board Community. A good example would be this vBulletin 3 theme. All the old rules were thrown out and new rules were created.

      Usergroup system that supports multiple group memberships.

      Template conditionals.

      Language and phrase systems that are independent of the templates making it easy to translate the software into different languages.

      Subscriptions. Promotions. Group join requests.

      Reputation system.

      Several queuing and caching features to reduce server load for busy forums.

      Great support.

      etc...

            vBulletin by default, is fairly optmized, there are a few things you can do outside of vB including mod_rewrite, but vB already doesnt show a session id to most any user.

              Most people who run vBulletin (e.g. me) don't install modifications so it would be the stock features drawing most of the people.

              As a matter of a fact there is. Unsupported support for fulltext searching.

                  New archive system is spiderable and when I do searches I am seeing many more results from the archive than the forums. Seems to be working great!

                    Thanks, that explains the recent migration I have seen from phpBB to V-Bull.

                            What I love best is the admin cp. Being the anal retentive idiot that I am, I've gotta have control over every bit....and that's what vB does.

                              Hi Eric

                              I ran a phpBB forum for 18 months and have recently (last week) migrated over to vB with a full customised design and unique look/feel. There are far too many features to mention here that are in vB that do not appear in phpBB... and besides, the relative support is incomparable. This was for me, one of the main reasons for moving away from phpBB... not a bad product, but the support forums are full of moderators who are 'wannabe, power crazed kids' with absolutely no knowledge of the importance of customer service whatsoever. That aside, there's a plethora of functions and features on vB that are not on phpBB.

                              All I can say to you is that I love it, my Moderators love it, and most importantly, my users totally love it. I have had no negative comments at all - despite my management team being concerned about the 'change' to a new application etc...

                              Go for it Eric, you certainly won't regret it.
