  • sell the older version of VB

    I was thinking maybe if vb would go with this idea...sell the older vb's like version 1.12 for like 50 bucks or so just a number...so that ppl can maybe buy that instead of use lite...? you still get money...and there is no tech support for it if you sell it...and no improvements....

        vBLite is not really supposed to be used as a functioning bulletin board - it is for that reason that fairly fundamental features like user registration are not included in vBLite.

        It's really only supposed to be a technology test for your server to make sure that it's actually capable of running the full version of vBulletin.

              vBLite tests a whole load of settings that are required for successful installation of vBulletin...

                        1.1.2 is insecure....1.1.6 is still an official supported release (IIRC). I'm confident in saying "it ain't gonna happen."

                          yeah I didnt think it would either...but I would love to see a cheaper...maybe a lower grade vb....I cant always afford vb...ever have that prob...I like to stick on bb...not go between this an phpbb which I am running my supportforums off right now...

                            If it were to happen (speculation here) it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to use 1.1.6 for it. I would think a pared down version of 2.0 would make more sense - easier to support because everyone's using the same basic product and easier to keep it secure because again, everyone's using the same basic product.
