      Well, I have the site up and running... lovin VB at this point!! :thumbs:

      So... I am now working in conjunction with a new group of people with the intent to collaborate on our websites. These guys are so stuck on "drupal"

      So far, drupal hasn't impressed me much... I realize its very flexible... but seems like a lot of extra work.

      I have to present to the head guy a comparison...

      Do you have any videos that would help me iterate the simpkicity and ease with which VB is capable as compared to drupal.... or even some really great "selling points"

      Doesn't have to be video... though i think that would be easiest for the head guy as he is basically computer illiterate.

      cheers!

        vBulletin is a forum that has a CMS/Articles system... Drupal is a full fledged CMS- they really aren't competing products so I am unaware of any direct comparisons. If this project is more CMS based than Forum Drupal may well be the better choice. If the purpose is to engage users and foster back and forth communication that a forum provides then it would seem a forum platform like VB4 is a no-brainer. Unfortunately it appears all the videos we have are for VB5 at this time.

            ok... so in deeper thinking..

            They are talking about database useage to keep membership subscription tracking and do update type stuff, update stuff like communicating as per mentioned above like VB4 or 5...

            I know vb has the"subscriptions" setup... how hard is it to extract that data from the database for usage outside VB? (like for local databases)
            FYI: I am not very familiar with database usage or implementation. My first work with databases, actually, was installing VB.

                Add this code to additional.css-

                Code:
                .formcontrols .blockrow label { color:red; }


                That will change the grey text on the registration page.


                As for extracting data from the database- as long as someone has database access they can easily pull info from the database itself, but vBulletin has no export tools to nicely print out subscription date. It will take some custom queries to extract a list of active subscriptions with subscription details and user info - it should be fairly easy for someone who knows/understands MySQL.

                  wonderful! again, I thank you! and thank you for the db advice... i will pass it along to the team.. another question... i know... it never ends... lol
                  When I type my user name and password and click Log In, in the upper right hand corner. I get this invalid link every time. I figure it is because the link is directing to http instead of https

                        In Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details there is a Redirect Domain Whitelist box. You must list every domain (http or https included) that differs from the Forum URL at the top of that settings page,

                        So if your Forum URL is http://www.domain.com then on your redirect whitelist you should have https://www.domain.com and possibly https://domain.com as well if you may use the site without the www.

                            I have a question about facebook tie-in. My concerns are, if I tie into facebook, how much access to server and VB data do they have? Can they get to data others would not normally be able to access?

                            I am considering the tie-in for publicity... but ant to insure my users data and privacy safety concerns are addressed over and above any easy advertising..

                            thanks as always

                              What specific problem are you having with the uploader?

                              Facebook would be able to track some data about your users (if they use facebook or not, which users use your site). You'd want to read their privacy policies.
