    vBulletin 4.0 Publishing Suite

    Is there any chance of a video tour?

    One thing ref editor if using as part of a real site and not just a forum the code needs to be good. can the editor be set to just add valid code for headings bold italic...
    that way css can control the content.

    http://community.invisionpower.com/index.php? (yes, even them)


    Even places like SMF and PHPBB slightly reach a better accessibility rate. vB4's default is much too light, lacks proper spacing, and have much too small font in various places.

    As stated, yes, not many use the default skin, but that's a good move by them. I'm strictly stating the interface design impressions of what I must work against seem to discourage my tastes.
    Can't you easily change the font and look of your site through editing the css? Why would your site look anything like the default?

    I guess I'm already used to vBulletin and I spent more time looking at the content in the screen shots than I did the overall appearance, knowing full well that I would change that before I ever made it public.

    Looks like I have LOTS of words to eat........which is good, I really prefer staying with vB

    And I don't doubt that Wayne is correct, but, if so, members.vbulletin.com doesn't know it (yet) because that's where I got the info ... it tells me "No Upgrade" and only offers me the choice to buy it for $250

    screenshot attached

    Wayne, if you are telling me that leased customers can upgrade for $130 I have no problem taking you at your word (and swallowing my words too) and I understand that maybe the website just needs fixed

    When you select the $250 option, the Discount does not appear?

    I posted a screen shot in another thread showing that... (Logged in to the customer area and I have two active, owned licenses.)

    Apparently, as I am a leased customer, I do not qualify for a upgrade. Spending $130 without seeing what I'm getting is one thing.
    Spending $250 without seeing what I'm getting is a different thing.

    Looks like I'm off to see what the competition offers.
    You qualify... You need to login first by clicking "Customer Login" in the top right corner. There should be a message on the screen stating this fact.
