  • Is it worth it?

    Hey
    I have IPB right now....n it went DOWN
    I m starting to HATE ipb...so i decided to switch to Vbulletin since i hear alot of stories abt it...well...i worked for 1 month to earn 85$...{i m a 16 yrs old student widout a job} so i did small online projects...

    Well I cant see my site like that anymore...so if i BUY the license can u pplz PLEASE convert it for me? i dont knw if i will be able to do it n i dont want to waste time so thts 1 question....
    2. The 85$ license is valid for 1 year n then i dont get support...But am i allowed to run my site after 1 year? or does it just SHUTS Down...like in IPB after 1 yr u dont have the acess to SUPPORT section but the site still runs....n its still legal...

    3. Is USHOP free? or do i have to buy all the mods 2? {i really cant do that..dont have any $}

    I think thats good for now
    Waiting for quick responses

    1. You would need to have access to the IPB database to import the data.

    2. No,, the leased license is only good for one year. When the license expires you need to either purchase another license or remove the software.

    3. I don't know if that hack is free or not. We don't provide support for hacks. The place to ask is at www.vbulletin.org. It is currently unavailable right now but should be back up later.

                And an owned vBulletin license is $160, not $185. That's the cost of IPB's perpetual license.

                  The mod community for vB is way bigger than the community for IPB. I got the leased lic last year and I'm about to buy the owned lic for my site.

                      You should do the merge on a test forum before doing it on a live site, this will help you get an idea of how things work. Honestly it is a simple process to import a forum, it may seem like an impossible task at first but once you get moving on it things will start coming togther quickly.

                            Do the import. Though from IPB is one of the really simple imports, just about all the bugs have been ironed out of that importer now, install and click.
