  • Can we use PT openly now

    A client of mine has a license for PT which he uses on 1 site. He has multiple forums. Since VB has stated that PT will be open source, is it ok for him to use it on multiple forums now?

    Not completely sure but I'd say probably not just yet.

    They've said that they'll be releasing it as open source but they haven't actually done so yet.
    Epic sunburn!

        Well effectively, PT has been canned, doesn't exist any more.

          PT DOES exist. Don't know where you got your information. I just got a reply from Wayne Luke:
          Hello,

          Thank you for contacting vBulletin Support. We will be releasing a version of Project Tools compatible with vBulletin 4.0.0 in the upcoming weeks. It will be released at www.vbulletin.org.


          All the best,

            glad none of my clients use PT, they wouldn't be to happy that they can't upgrade their sites to 4.0 yet because the product they paid for isn't supported anymore

              VB 4 is an infant unfortunately and infants, as we know, slip and fall. IMO PL1 is not gold, I'd still consider it a beta. The CMS doesn't even allow me to display the articles I want on each of the sections. That is a BASIC of any CMS.

              Until they fix the problems I'll stick with 3.8.4. I use PT's extensively and will wait. Your comment "isn't supported anymore" should ben "isn't supported as of yet.". As Luke said expect a fix "in the upcoming weeks". Guess that's better than months.

                  Wayne Luke's response only pertains to the vBulletin 4 Project Tools. What about users who still want to use vBulletin 3, at least until vBulletin 4 is more stable? I could not find a way to purchase Project Tools for vB3, and there's no news about the open-source nature of that.

                    My guess would be that until PT is released into the wild at vb.org, any use of an unauthorized license would be piracy. I'm not a lawyer, but I play one on TV.
                    Anybody who says "it can't be done" will usually be interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.

                      But only licensed members can download files @ vb.org along with staff and whatever.

                        I agree, as it stands now, the license keeps us from using it more than once, regardless of what "common knowledge" is telling us...

                          I'm still waiting for project tools as I really want to include it in my forums and would be willing to pay for it. :P

                            You wouldn't need to pay as it will be free... >.<
