    I hope they'll consider it in the future.

    Does the CMS allow us to create static pages like the former?
    No it does not.

    Umm.. so it's not that difficult but including it in a future release is a big goal??? I'm confused... this is something I would be wanting as well.

    They will not support vBA of course, but they will support your forums, cause vBA will not mess up your forums when you use it for additional pages and a front page.

    So, the layout designer won't work at all on forum pages? That's really unfortunate, as it's jarring to have one layout for the 'landing' page and another for the content. I will absolutely require the ability to have context "sidebars"/widgets throughout the site.

    Are there plans to fix this within the early 4.x releases? The sooner the better.

    Thx!

    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

    Viewing the Features list for the CMS found here: http://www.vbulletin.com/index.php?do=features (scroll down to the CMS section) It would appear to be very powerful and quite a contender when compared with vBA. The only thing I don't see mentioned there is integration of widgets with forum only pages. Their "out of the box" or default widgets fairly well replicate what vBA has to offer. You can create your own custom widgets as you can with vBA. You can create static pages, articles, etc. Also, as pointed out by a previous poster, there will undoubtedly be many widgets/addons released for it at vb.org.

    I've no issue with vBA, I've used it for years and have been very pleased with it. From the looks of it though, you could very easily replicate a lot of what it does with the new CMS product.

    I do not see vB's version of a CMS being as powerful as vBA out of the box, maybe in future releases or with add-ons from vb.org, but first release out of the box? No.

    Maybe. I don't see why not. But then again I could substantiate my post further if IB actually had a working *cough* copy *cough*

    I figured that would be the case, and for my one license that is great cause it don't need a blog...but the other, if they depreciate and stop support on the the 3.8x compatible one, then I lose both blog AND cms, because I don't have the funds to spend more on top of the $240. already laid out a couple weeks before the announcement, and really shouldn't have to lose n that deal since it was under the staff's advisement, and stupid me thought they were reputable people that one could trust their word....sure proved me wrong!!!!

    Thanks for the speedy reply though

    TSG!
