    Correct. vBa CMPS is a free product (the only requirement is that the person downloading the script is a licensed vBulletin customer) and vBa Links & vBa Gallery are commercial products.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again, it's been eons since I've used vBa, BUT from what I remember you had to manually hack files?? Sure that's not hard or anything, but it's more work than vbPortal, which requires no hacking at all, just install and away you go. Takes about 5 minutes tops. unless you want to fiddle around with the css, then sure it can take longer.
    Correct, you need to make some minor changes to a few of the files. But you don't need to mess around with your styles.

    .... as people do for other products in return.

    vba I recall taking me nearly a hour the first time, since I really didn't know a huge amount about hackign files then. might take me only 20 now?

    Each to thier own of course. I just feel I need to voice my support for vbPortal a lot.

    **edited to add**
    Also, another "I've said it before" thing, the support on vbPortal is also amazing! Folks seem to announce the support for vba as if there is no support for vbPortal. There IS amazing support for vbPortal!

    *hangs head* even when it's a dumb question! hehe right Scotsmist? (Boy does he know some of my more dumb questions. Answered every last one of them though!)

    Just an FYI.... the three vBadvanced products (CMPS, Links, & Gallery) are independent of each other so you can run Links by itself. So, in this case, yes, you can run vBa Links with vB Portal or any other portal package that you may be looking at.

    Of course I'd have to recommend vBa CMPS but it's more important that people realize that all three products can be used independently or with each other.

    Yeah, thanks. I already checked it out. It's decent, but I think the vBadvanced links dir is better. A links component is actually the priority for me right now. (Too bad InLink doesn't like vB. I prefer vBa's integration.)

    I tried vbAdvanced briefly, it seemed OK. After I uploaded vBulletin 3.03 on top of everything, I never re-installed the hacks required by vbAdvanced.

    I'm now trying to get used to vbPortal, which I like a lot. It is capable of doing more than what I wanted. What I like best: No worries when upgrading vBulletin, since vbPortal requires no code hacks of vBulletin code! I just installed 3.0.7 per vBulletin's readme, and everything continues to work as it should. So, color me happy with vBulletin and vbPortal!

    Well I use vbportal, but to comment on your site www.318ti.org, which uses vbadvanced, your left column is messed up in FireFox and messed up in a different way in IE. I dunno if thats your coding or vbadvanced.

    Also, you have 176 coding errors alone on that homepage.

    VBportal is xhtml 1.0 trans compliant. Is vbadvanced? Doesnt seem like it to me, but these should be taken into consideration if you are going to compare the two.

    I am really happy with my vbportals. I tinkered with vbadvanced a bit but it wasn't for me. Different strokes for different folks.
