  • same licence,same domain

    as a new comer to vbulletin can someone please help me with this ?

    what i would like to know is it possible and legal to have 3 different foums under the same licence ?
    all forums are part of the main objective of my site

    what i would like is all 3 forums to run off the same database with 1 login ,etc

    each forum would have a different style but all content would be the same apart from the wording

    so say :
    Forum 1 would have join our GOW squad
    Forum 2 would have join our COD squad
    Forum 3 would have join our HALO 3 squad

    and same for each catagory

    many thanks in advance for a reply or advice on how i can do this

    wouldn't it be better to have 1 forum with different forum categories, and then create 3 subdomains to point to each category ?

        No. That would not be possible. As per vBulletins term's, you can only have 1 installation/instance that is publically viewable.

        Therefore, you would need 3 licenses for the setup you want.

        PS: Hiding forums based on domain/subdirectory is ALSO banned by vBulletin and would still require 3 licenses.

          You can have a different style for different catagories/forums as far as I'm aware.

            Yep, you sure can, as long as all of those forums are visible at all times.

            Hiding Content PLUS individual styles = against the EULA.
