    Thanks alot for those posts - very helpful.


    ps wow, that 1 million link, one board has 4.4 million posts and was fast too - that in itself adds credibility to the software.

    And I visited the offtopic site, is that design change hard to do? It seems clean and crisp.

    1) Do you mean this thread? http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47430

    2) No, there's no such function, although I do believe there is a modification or two at vBorg that do this.

    3) Personally, I don't know, but I did find a couple of articles on it that may help:
    http://www.webpronews.com/expertarti.../22/asp-vs-php
    http://www.ajaxninja.com/?p=150
    http://www.phpmac.com/articles.php?view=50

    4) Yes, vBulletin is Visible Source, so you can view the entire code. However, phrases (words and such) can be changed through the ACP interface, so you don't have to touch the code at all.

    This software seems pretty good, a few questions.

    1. Do you have samples of large websites that use your software - I actually found it in the posts somewhere but can't find it again !
    Try http://www.offtopic.com.

    Or another way to do it, can the topics be closed off at a certain time without having to manually do it?
    To my knowledge, there is not. But, there is a modification available at vBulletin.org that can do this.

    Yes, this can be done simply through your ACP in the Phrases section.

    Yes, you can set a page width via percentile or pixels via the ACP.

    3. How does PHP compare to an ASP forum in terms of speed?

    Thank you in advance
