    Brian over at vBA has announced they are in the works of making vBAdvanced to work with vB4 and as always they will support it just like they have all there other products. there current version(3.2.1) will not work with vB4, so they are making a complete recode so you will still be able to use vBA on your new vB4.

    There is prolly a way to run both, will have to wait and see.

    They are currently working on a new version to go along with vB4
    Well with that said, then why would anyone NEED suite if they have forum, 3.8 blog, and vBAdvanced CMPS and accompanying support mods?

    With that rationale, then there is no real VALUE in the price to step up to the suite when you just forked out $240.00 three weeks before the announcement, like I did, after being ushered by staff to not wait an see before buying products they knew they would not plan to honor the licensing on anyway!

    And from reading between your lines, is something that is likely to be supported continuously, unlike IB's propensity to milk a cow dry slaughter it and buy a new one!

    So am I understanding you properly?

    TSG

    P.S. STILL wondering if they will EVER give a FINAL response to my ticket though!

    I use vBadvanced CMPS as my homepage. Will the CMS that comes with the new 4.0 suite be able to replace this?

    Im a tad confused about the differences between vbadvanced and vb 4.0 CMS.

    If 4.0 CMS does not provide a 'homepage' type section like vbadvanced is it still possible to use vbadvanced.

    Thanks

    Since I have modules in a left column, I hope to continue to use vBadvanced. It serves a different purpose than the vB's CMS.

    I hope that vba CMPS will allow us to put vb4 widgets into the forum / groups / blog, etc.

    Please do not compare apples and oranges. vba is a portal, vb cms is not (cms= content management system).

    Yes, but the widgets will not work in the forum with the first version (vB 4)
    They will only be shown on the cms pages

    The vB4 CMS will not offer permanent side columns on every page with widgets etc.
    vBA is pretty customizable, and this can be configured with their script as well.

    With CMS would VBadvanced still be needed....

    for the purpose of 'home page' type portal and overall content management? Am I confused? This is all still very new to me.
