    Actually, OSM has officially adopted the name Joomla as of some weeks ago. The dev who coded the Mambo/VB bridge has it at version 1.1 to use with Joomla (and still for Mambo, far as I can tell). Support forum for it is at joomla.org here.

    Works great! Once I get the hang of joomla backend then I can actually make use of it my buddy is in process of converting our template to joomla right now.

    This makes me wish I hadn't purchased subdreamer a short while ago

    Many Thanks

    After using mambo and despite loving the fact it's coded so well for free, I ended up feeling that I need something simpler. The fact I love to design and redesign means that I can add immense versatility to something I always knew how to use, vbulletin!

    Tack on to the fact I have a full license, that I DEPEND on jelsoft to create timely security releases and I have a product I can trust not to be hacked to death, and I have a winner. I use add ons such as vbhome software to create a coherent for my site, but again I can redesign the template to my heart's content and change styles.

    In any case, I'm very sorry to hear that mambo's team divorced. It was a great CMS and I hope this change in hands doesn't affect it too dramatically.

    Ah, okay. I understood the leaving part somewhat, but didn't full comprehend the ground-point of the thing. Thanks.

    I don't get it... someone explain it to me in simple-form please.

    I have trouble understanding formal-like letter like that and stuff sometimes.

    I tried Mambo for a short while on a test site. It seemed a bit slow....

    I used Mambo for years on and off and think it's great and not anywhere near as bloated as PHPnuke and such like.
