  • IPB > vB and other questions

    Hello, I currently host multiple IPB boards and am looking to span them to more servers and such. I currently love IPB because of the way it runs on my servers and already got it planned to cluster to web & database then web | php | database for a total of 3 servers this possible with vB?

    Also hows the attachments system, it run similar to IPB? Anyway to get it similar to IPB?

    http://compsupportforums.com/forums/...=0&#entry16083

    I need thumbnails and such, I require members to upload to the board on my forums, its helpfull I can resize the thumbnails and such easially. Well Invision has been a ***** recently and I was wondering how the grass was on the otherside

    So throw your best at me to tell me how it is and such and thanks if its better I wouldn't mind converting all my boards

    Not sure if this is what you are asking but vB does have the option to show thumbnails for attachement and you can set the thumbnail size to your specifications. (Note: This does require either having PHP with GD support or ImageMagick installed on the server.)

    If I misunderstood the question, please let me know.

        Yes, we have an importer for IPB that will import that data.

        http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex_ipb2 (IPB 2)

        Please note that since IPB passwords are encrypted, they cannot be imported. Your users will need to reset their passwords after the import. You can read more about this here:
