    Hi all

    im very very new to all this

    also say i go for the $195 package can i later upgrade to the publishing suite?

    You would get updates for the 4.x series. And would not need to pay again until 5.x is released. And that's only if you want to upgrade to 5.x. You can keep running 4.x as long as you want.

    It would cost $100 to upgrade to the Suite later.

      thanks for a quick reply

      is it worth buying the suite now i mean it is a new forum or should i buy it afterwards?

      is there any indication as to when vb 5 will be released?

        I bought the suite so I think it is but there's a lot that don't feel the CMS is worth it at the moment. I had a phpbb, wordpress for cms, and wordpress mu for users integration before and it was a pain once Wordpress went to 2.8 as our bridge failed so we wanted something integrated smoothly. It depends if you want to offer your users blogs and need a cms or not.

        And I don't know when its on their calendar. Hopefully 5.x won't be released for a long time.
