  • Questions before purchase

    I have a few questions that I would like to have answered before I buy vBulletin:

    1) Am I allowed to run a development (test run) vBulletin forum just for my testing purposes? It would not be accessible by anyone on the internet, but would greatly improve my understanding of this software before I implement it into a production environment. I usually run mock-up application environments on virtual servers before I implement anything.

    2) Is it possible to restrict users from changing certain options in the UserCP? More specifically, the option to disable instant messenger. And, if so, is this a configuration option or do I have to manually edit the php files myself?

    3) Does vBulletin support any kind of automatic (or cron) jobs so a person does not have to visit the forum in order for any scripts to be run on the database?

    That is all I can think of right now. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me answer these questions.

    1) Yes.. Our license agreement specifically allows this.

    2) You can do this with addons and template edits.

    3) There is a Scheduled Task Interface that you can expand on with custom coding.
