  • free vBulletin Lite license

    What license uses vBulletin Lite? I have it legally downloaded, but I don't remember what license it was.

    vBulletin Solutions offers no free licenses for their products.

        Maybe it would be a good idea to make a free version but with less features (lite version of the forum) allowing them to upgrade to full version?

          I think that the vB Lite should use the latest version of the vB3.x tree and the vB4.x tree, which allows a 24-hour demo to try out the software before buying. It would be locked to access, obviously and have very limited features.

          But I severely doubt it.
          That's it. If you REALLY can't say ANYTHING nice to me at all on this forum, then I am going to go insanely mad at you. I've had enough of the UNTOLD ABUSE you are all giving me and you should really be CONSIDERATE of other people.

            ... or they can just use the Admin Demo.

              We do not have any plans to reinstate a Lite version of vBulletin. The old vBulletin Lite will most likely not run on modern servers due to being programmed against PHP 2 and early versions of PHP 3. This is one reason why it was discontinued. The amount of work to keep it updated and secure was not worth the benefits it provided.

              We do provide a 24 hour demo of our latest series available at http://www.vbulletin.com/admindemo.php

                I am not talking about any new products, I am asking what is legal status of "vBulletin Lite" product from Jelsoft, wich was offered for free download long time ago.

                There are running forums on this version, as I understand the purpose of this script was TRIAL without most features and without time limit - is this correct?

                What was exact license agreement for this downloads, if any?

                    If you already have a copy and want to run the risk of using it bearing in mind that:

                    - it's hopelessly out of date
                    - may not run on modern hosting environments
                    - will be very unsecure

                    then carry on. However, you will receive no support for it. It should also be noted that it will be subject to the licensing conditions that were around when that version was released, a copy of which is normally included in amongst the files.
