    www.scotsmist.org.uk/index.php has the navbar above the columns with only two very minor template changes.
    Yes but the columns are still bunched up.

    I use vbPortal and have done for some time, now using vbPortal 3 as it installs without the need to edit "any" vBulletin files and if vBulletin is upgraded, because I did not edit any file to get the portal installed, I do not need to re-edit anything, Simpily the best

    vbPortal has been around since the early days of vb2, but has just had a total code re-write in it's newest version vbPortal 3 for vBulletin 3.

    I prefer to stick with the leading portal, not the ones that are trying to match and follow in vbPortal foot steps, if was the first and is No 1

    In reference to a comment above.....
    Should vBulletin Staff & Moderators be so judgemental on anything like this or should they rather be impartial as their positon can swing things either way, rather unfairly !!

    BTW - I have tried all the available portals & frontends for vB and have made my comments "only" after knowing how each one works.
    You got to try each one before you can pass judgement on any.... (Says an old wise man)

    And why?

    VBadvanced isn't a portal and isn't a CMS

    Come on People, there is an ocean of differences between them

    People tend to select these powered up vB Homepage Editors like vBa because they are free where support isn't that fast as with paid/supported programs.

    I also do think that it's stated several times before that vBP3 has nothing to do with phpNuke but still the same people refer to it

    When does the bashing of vBPortal stops!!?? Even moderators/staff of vBulletin sites take part in this while they somehow need to praise such software because in the end it's all for the good of vBulletin.

    I've been using the VB Portal system for years now, since the beta stages of 2.x. I just had my forums and VB Portal upgraded to version 3, and I could not be more pleased. I like the customization ability of the Portal, and how it best serves my needs. Bill (Wajones) does all of my database work, and his service is top-notch. I would not even consider anyone else, or any other system.

    My website is a full-time venture for me, so I do not take decisions on my database lightly. Although not 100% complete yet, you can have a look at my system here: http://forums.screamandfly.com

    Thank you Bill and the entire VB Portal team for a product that deserves so much more appreciation than it seems to get. VB Portal all the way for me, now and in the future.

    For years now I've been waiting for someone to offer a portal that actually makes it easy to find the forums. Every time I end up on a portal site while looking for something I always groan because usually it means I spend at least 30 seconds trying to find a link to the board. Then I just leave. All those dozens of latest topics etc. people strew on their portal homepage are only useful to existing members, not potential ones.

    I use vBadvanced. Very nice free software and much in the way of features and nice support site.
    I too would like to see a Jelsoft product with more of a content management system much the way xoops, phpnuke, etc do this.

    I would like to take this opportunity to correct some of the myths:

    vbportal 3 does not require you to hack or modify any vbulletin files.

    there is a very minor change to the database. vbportal adds 1 extra index to 2 tables. the index's added are to benefit vbportal querys.

    vbportal 3 for vbulletin 3 is not based on phpnuke or postnuke code, it is a complete rewrite.

    the number of querys in vbportal 3 is seriously reduced and compared to older versions of vbportal for vbulletin 2.x is like night and day, it leverages vbulletin's own power as much as possible.

    vbportal 3 is very simple to install

    PHP-Nuke-based portals like vBPortal tend to run a lot more queries. Just a consideration.

    Is vbindex in this game or not?

    I just installed vBadvanced Gallery, so now I'm wondering whether to yank vbindex and install vBadvanced CMPS (might as well go all the way?)

    Has anyone here done an uninstall of vbindex?

    This poll is like voting Republican or Conservative or Libertarian with the Democrats left off the ticket. That would be fine with me, but I'd like to see vBindex on this ticket.
