  • Some Questions

    I'm thinking of purchasing vB for use on a community I'm opening up. I'm also considering Blog. Is there a way to limit use of the blog by user group or subscription? Also I intend on showing ads on the forums, and to have them removed by subscription. Can subscriptions remove advertisements or how could that be achieved? Or can you assign a certain theme to a particular usergroup, etc.

    Also, if you purchase the original license (I've read this a few times but it confuses me) and then don't renew it... I understand that I can no longer update my system but can I still operate the forums? Also how would this apply to the blog system?

    You may use both of them forever,provided you did not purchase the 1 year (lease)licence.


    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

      Okay I thought so if you leased it the first time is there a discount to switch to a full license?

        "You can upgrade from a leased to an owned license for an additional $100 if you do so within 60 days of the purchase. After 60 days, it is full price."

          When you add your Ad code, you can wrap it in a template conditional to hide for certain usergroups.

          You can do that too.
