  • vB4: No discount for users who purchased Blog component?

    Just saw the pre-order option for vB 4.

    They are not giving any discount to customers who had already acquired the blog component of vB 3...

    That's kind of unfair!

    Just something I wanted to say.

    Customers opting for the complete CMS edition should get a discount if they already own the Blog component in vB 3.

    No discount. Just cough up the 130$ and be happy Internet Brands didn't charge you more. No use complaining about it, trust me, the folks in charge don't care.

      I guess I would stick with the forum component for the time being. I would probably get it for free as my license is going to remain active till next year.

      My forum members are not using the blog component too much.

      I am not sure what would happen to the blogs if we do not go for the CMS option in vB4.

      I am assuming here that the blog content would become inactive if we do not get the CMS package.

        I second the question of the original poster. There has to be at least a small compensation for current blog owners. I bought the blog way back when the blog licence was not linked to a "parent" vBulletin license. Let it just be 20$ for a total of 110$ then. What do you say vBulletin?

          and a clarification is required on what happens to blog component if CMS component is not acquired!

            To the best of my knowledge, the older blog does not work with vB4 [forum].

                alright no discount. they made that clear.

                what about migration of data to the new system... where would blog data go if i do not go for the cms edition!

                update: i would go through the feature page once again to see if forum edition has a blog module. i am not sure if blog is going to be kept separate from cms... this is getting complicated.

                  I agree with this also.

                  Whilst I like the idea of the CMS and will probably use it eventually, I don't like the way its bundled with the CMS in VB Suite, especially when all I want is initially is the blog & forum components.

                  Hence I feel there should be some sweetener for blog module owners when they purchase VB Suite.
