  • Photo gallery here off limits to guests, not good !!!

    You guys have the photo gallery only available to logged in members here, that is not good for a showcase forum and one that is a support forum for vBulletin software.

    How are you guys going to sell scripts and forum software when guests can not even view your product or try it out ??

    Not a good idea to shut it off to visitors just to save BW.

    User profiles are off-limits to guests to protect our existing customer's privacy not to save bandwidth. Once the demo has been upgraded then potential customers can use it to preview new features. Unfortunately we can't just upgrade it immediately because all running demos use the same virtualized files and there is currently no way to efficiently upgrade the average of 300 databases running at any given time.

      OK, I sort of "get it".

      But when is a photo gallery part of a members profile ??

      Is the photo gallery part of the forum or not ??

      Is the photo gallery a stock module in vBulletin 3.7.0 and will we be able to use it as is when we update our forums ??

      Can we shut it off to guests or turn it on so guests can view it when we update ??

      Is there hotlinking protection if we do turn it on to save BW ??

        vBulletin 3.7.0 includes User Albums. These are small albums where users can upload images for use in their profile and to share with other users. Each user's album(s) are accessed from their profile.

        It does not have a "Photo Gallery" and it has never been advertised as having one.

          Well, vB needs to work on a full fledged photo gallery then, I like the way this works and it could be extended to a real photo gallery module down the road.
