  • I donít buy VB5 - WHY

    I was waiting for VB5 - now I see it and I donít buy it. Why?

    1. First of all - I donít trust your business model.
    a/ you were selling full of bugs VB4. Every new version had more or new bugs. E.g. Ckeditor is broken since 2011 !!!
    b/ you left unfinished VB4 (with bugs) and started a new project. (VB5)
    c/ based on that - I can assume - one day again, sooner or latter - youíll leave unfinished VB5 and youíll start VB6.

    2. Price of VB5 - $249 for just a forum software. Price is to high.
    Comparing to VB4 Suite - you reduced VB5 to a simple forum software.
    Blogs in VB5 sucks and CMS will sucks.
    I can have a decent forum software for $140 or even for free.

    3.Navigation sucks.
    E.g . Iím reading post on page #20. Using back button on browser - Iím on page #1.
    Then I have to navigate to page #20 again. This is really stupid thing. Explain why this is better than normal, practical navigation system?

    4.Site Builder is very limited - this is really not a big deal.
    E.g in WordPress with 2 widgets I have better control over website.


    And BTW- Search here doesn't work - I'm getting an error - see image.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I would disagree that site builder is "very limited" - it's a powerful tool.
    Search doesn't work here at the moment but it will work on a normal vB5 site.

    But, do keep an eye on the software as the product will continue to be refined and improved. Buy it if and when it reaches a point that you feel it suits you.

            MAybe in 1 year it will be usable but what I see right now....sorry....no. I don'T understand why it was already released to the public.....also the design is pretty boring, it doesn't make fun to stay like that. I am sure it will be fine one day, but I will for sure not buy it before 2014.

                  Who's Online is not working.

                  I'm missing features like a member list in the navbar - to see other members I have to go into admin control panel. How will other members manage to engage?

                  Blogs are awful compared to the very good vBulletin 4 ones.

                  These are positive criticisms, I really hope it can be improved because I see potential, and behind the scenes (looks) it seems to be decent software.

                      First of all the quote system sucks, because it quoted a structured post into a block of text.

                      Anyway, my feedback on the feedback:

                      The price may seem high for just forum software, but it won't just be forum software will it. At some point you will get full package. Granted it should have been released as a full package, but that didn't happen, but it doesn't mean you are only getting forum software for that price.

                      You say CMS will suck - that is NOT feedback at all, that is your assumption, therefore not relevant to anything.

                      If you can have decent forum software for $140 or for free then go and use it.

                      Have you reported the navigation issue anywhere else or did you just complain about it straight off? You seem to think it was purposely designed like that, do you know if it was?
