    I would imagine it would allow you to better organize and prioritze your content. It would allow for you to show off well written and popular articles easily on the frontpage (to feature them). Instead of having users to dig though the forums for posts. I would adivse you test out the demo and see if you're intrested in what the CMS has to offer. http://www.vbulletin.com/go/demo

    Yeah I did emphasize the attachments issue, and I am definitely at the point of considering host-change...but I am also interested in the actual content management aspects of the suite, and how it would work for a website such as mine. Thanks Zachery.

    Sorry, I only saw you talking about attachments, the cms uses the same attachment system as the forums.
    The CMS won't fix your 1024 limit file issue, though it would likely be useful if your members do post alot of tutorials and you'd like a better way to organize them.

    Well, I'm still VERY surprised that there's no attempt whatsoever (even by a vbulletin staff member) to justify the upgrade to the CMS.

    Try Surpass Hosting.

    anyone have any recommendations for a host that doesn't have this restriction and is as affordable as godaddy's deluxe shared hosting?

    I believe the CMS and Forum use the same attachment system. Unfortunately, that will not help resolve your issues.

    You could check into the possibility of remotely storing the attachments on a different serrver with a different host. It may add a nominal monthly charge (shared should be fine I think) it would be an intermediate solution for storing files without having to move hosts right away.

    Yes, that seems to be the sentiment...but there's a lot of overhead in changing hosts...and that doesn't answer any of the questions about how the CMS handles files anyways. I'd still like to know whether or not the CMS would be beneficial for my site.

    Find a better webhost, that is a silly restriction.

  • Growing from Attachments to Content Management...file structure issue?

    I run a mapping website that gets a LOT of "work in progress" attachments. My host has set a hard limit of no more than 1024 files in a single folder, and the forum's attachment folder structure has spread that out well, except for the fact that some of my users are approaching the 1024 attachments threshold.

    I've already modified my core to separate the attachments from the thumbnails, thus buying me more time...but I'm going to need another solution soon.

    I noticed there is a way to promote a forum post to a CMS article...Does the CMS have a separate folder structure from the attachments system? and would I then be able to prune the posts that get promoted to articles? A lot of my more prolific posters also post tutorials and things like that, which would be much better as CMS articles.

    I am running 4.0.3 PL1 of the forum currently. Any insight as to my file storage issue and whether or not the CMS suite upgrade would help me alleviate that would be VERY welcomed.
