    Getting close to buying it.

    Not like someone down there that thinks its ok to steal copyrighted material. Man thats a strange one.

    Anyway, what I'm hoping is to get Vbulletin and add the thumbnail for topics mod to it. So next to the topic is a thumbnail. I can't remember where I saw that on here. Can someone point that out for me please ??.

    Next, I'm using SMF and want to try to use Implex to convert over, what I want to know, is can I try this on a dummy forum first. In other words, into a different folder on the server and away from the main forum. Once I know it will work, then do it to the full forum.

    I can setup a dummy forum using the database in another folder first to try it. Would that work ??. I can't see why it wouldn't, but I'm certainly not an expert on it or the process.

    Finally the thumbnail for topics mod, exactly what version of Vb would you suggest I get for that to work with.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Dan, I will try my best to answer your questions for you...first

    1) Not sure but you can try searching
    2&3) Yes you are allowed a test installation in the directory of "testvb" this must be guarded by .htaccess and only accessable by YOU - It must not allow registrations and not be used as a live forum, it is for TESTING purposes only, you can test impex on this though as long as it isn't used for the LIVE forum.

    I hope this helped you! just so you know, some other commonly asked questions:
    Owned license - $180 - use vB forever plus 1 yr (12 months) of upgrades.
    $40/$60 (Optional) yearly fee for another year of upgrade access.
    Leased: - $100, You may use vBulletin and have access to any upgrades, up to a year, after the year is up, you must either:
    a) Take the forum down from your server
    b) purchase another year
    c) purchase an owned license

    All add-ons you purchase are tied into your license so they are a 1 time fee as long as your license is active and not expired.

    Hope I helped you make your decision, and welcome to the family.

      Thats excellent NS and exactly what I was looking for. I know many say use the search functions, easier said than done sometimes . You could spend hours for just a simple answer.

      Hey, thanks for your time and thats brilliant. No way would a test forum go live. I would get a lifetime license anyway.

      All the best and a huge thanks.
