    In the forum directory? ... Do you mean in its own folder?? IF so, then it IS possible. they now have it set so it will accept a subdirectory. all you have to do is let it know in one spot where the portal is.

    When I tested out the subdirectory feature it worked really well, mind that was still only /portal and forums in /forum ...

    But it should work as /forum/portal ??? *makes not to test this on test machine*

    Good point. I have used both. I probably would use vBPortal again if it could be installed in my forum directory.

    Blah blah blah, too much insecurity in this thread. Let me break it down to you.

    VBA= Free but that comes with various modifications and can be very time consuming. But hey if you are the do it yourself person and are the type of person that doesn't need much help and have the time, this is for you.

    VBP= Like any software, takes a bit getting use to (2x vs 3x= world of difference), but once you do, its great. No modifications, easy install, and extremely fast tech support 24-7 only for $20 which last an entire year, and thats the tech support for a year, you can still use the software (not a license). I waited on vbp to go gold for quite some time, once it did, the skin compatibilities were almost instant. Even one of their staff members installed the portal skin, which I had on my forums to save time.

    Oh and please quit the false accusations on the software till you've used both, heck you shouldn't even vote till you've used both.

    I have been using vbportal for 3 years and have never had any problems with it.
    I like it because it doesn't Interfere with vbb when upgrading vbb.

    vbPortal is supported very well!
    umm what hacks/mods/etc does vba have that the vbPortal doesn't have custom OR added on?

    It's been a long while since I've tried vBa, but I don't recall them having (at the time I tried it) any where NEAR what vbPortal has, stock. Plus the vbPortal does NOT require you to hack any vB files AT all! (well one, IF you want ... it's not needed. still works great without that file being changed. LOL)

    You're A Funny Guy vBa is for sure not a Portal nor a CMS!

    Btw, your sites are looking super with these home page editors

    umm how can people stuff the ballot? You can only vote once.

    And why vote for it if you haven't used it?!??!

    This is indeed a sad story. But I have seen real bashing of VB portal happening on all VB affiliated site...I have never seen this in any of thae softwares sites...I till wonder why VBPortal is being targeted probably little more systematically....it may have it bugs...and so is any software...

    I tried VBAdv, VB Index and finally settled on VB Portal. In the current market, this is the only nice portal I found @ a resonable $$ .

    I use vBadvanced and like it. There are some quirks.
    I'd try vBPortal if I can have the portal in the same directory as my forum. It doesn't so I stick with vBadvanced.

    vBadvanced is free so you can try it out. It is easy to install and uninstall.
    If you find it doesn't work for you, try vBindex or pay for vBPortal.

    I think each have good and bad points.

    vBPortal is amazing. It still need some development, but i am impressed because it isnt a hack. It doesnt modify a vBulletin file and is really easy to install.

    Best regards

    Although I really like vBadvanced since I recently took an in-depth look at it, I'm a huge supportor of software that just plugs in nicely without having to bother with a bunch of file edits (ie, vBindex and (so I read above), vBPortal). Years of developing sites on Mambo have spoiled me I guess However, although Jelsoft haven't made it easy for vBulletin add-on developers to intergrate their product easily within vBulletin without editing of the files, it can be done. We are currently developing 2 products for vBulletin, 1 of which is a seperate product but intergrates nicely with vB, and the second being a fully-fledged vB hack/mod, and yet requires no editing of vBulletin files.

    Just my opinion, but if vBadvanced (and any add-on authors for that matter) wants to progress and grow, they need to cut down file editing to zero (or at least a bare minimum).

    Which brings me back on-topic.. My vote goes for vBPortal, because it doesn't require code edits (or so I'm told)

    Thanks,
    Alan.

    (P.S: This hack is a case in point - it took me hours to install, due to the amount of file edits that needed doing. The installation file was a 56k text file - Please make it easier for developers Jelsoft! )

    I have used and still use VBPortal for a long time. I did try VBAdvance when I first started looking into upgrading to VB 3. But didn't like the feel of it as much. Of course I did almost go with it just due to how long it to the VBPortal guys to finish VBPortals for VB 3. But I'm glad I waited. I really like it.

    Still needs some tweaking and work... but hey so does everything
