  • More info on vBulletin needed

    Hi,

    I'm involved with a new site (called ITerating)- a wiki guide for all software (open source and commercial) and I'm working at "Website & Communication Applications" class. I added vBulletin in the wiki guide but this is all I added so far :

    Description: vBulletin is a powerful, scalable and fully customizable forums package for your web site. It has been written using the Web's quickest-growing scripting language; PHP, and is complemented with a highly efficient and ultra fast back-end database engine built using MySQL.

    Home page link: http://www.vbulletin.com/

    Belongs to Classes: Forums

    Project Administrator or Product Manager: Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd

    Contributors:

    User Groups:

    Licenses: GNU General Public License (Free GPL compatible)

    Operating Systems:

    Packaged In:

    Programming Languages: PHP

    Programming Interfaces (API):

    Graphical Interfaces (GUI):

    Available languages:

    Patches:

    This is all I added so far (still many gaps). Any suggestions anyone?

      FYI, it's not GNU/GPL License. It's a commercial/paid license

                3/4 of the vB reviews are completely inaccurate, I doubt one or two determined vBulletin fans would make much difference in the longrun.

                  I might add there is a degree of bias on some of the reviews.

                  For example:

                  Originally posted by Cool

                  As much as this reviewer would argue that vBulletin is server intensive, it isn't. vBulletin is pretty effective in managing and being optimized for lot of performance despite poor hardware.

                  I like it but why pay for software when you can get the same functionality and performance and a better support form an Open Source project (I'm talking about phpBB).
                  Functionality - Not Really. There's lots of missing features in a basic stock vBulletin 3.6.x that are not available in phpBB 2.x.x

                  Performance - I don't see too many 1 million threads / posts of phpBB.

                  Support - I've read a lot of disgruntled complaints about the lack of support to be all honest. Moreso also how questions go unanswered.


                  While yes everyone has a personal bias, I think the bias inputted in these reviews are unfounded and moreso, provides an inaccurate view of vBulletin.
