  • Thinking of buying VBulletin...

    I was thinking of buy VBulletin(Once I save some money for it) to make a Pet Forum/Site for information about Pets.

    I have experience forumming on VBulletin but I've never used it. Is it easy?

    Does anyone have an sample forums/Website

    Yes, vb is easy to use. If you want, have a look at the online demo.

      The administrative back end of Vbulletin is comprehensively easy to navigate. As suggested above, there is a demo you can try before buying.

        If this is your first ever site i would suggest starting with a free product like SMF or something similar.
        Just to get your feet wet.
        Get some experience and then you can simply transfer everything to vB in the future when you decide to buy it.
        vB4 has a lot of options for you, its very through software... may be a bit overwhelming for a first timer.

          For seriously starting a community, I'd start with vbulletin. Whenever you transfer from one software to another, there are not only technical problems like importing passwords (which can be a big issue!), but also the user experience changes. And in communities, users prefer a stable environment.

            I "jumped" into vbulletin with no administration experience, just an avid regular user and lowly mod, I did just fine learning as I went.

              The back end is easy to navigate? I'd say it's powerful and very robust, but I would never call it easy to navigate or intuitive.

              However, the front end is easy to use, and the development community is pretty strong if you wanted custom styles or functionality, so I'd say go ahead if you have the money for it.

                Basically had the same experience, although I did try other forum softwares, I didn't really administrate a forum until I got vbulletin.

                  The front-end is most important for any community. vbulletin is good at that. I also like the backend, after you know where everything is placed, it is logical structured! I do not care about "javascript effects" on the backstage. The backstage is clean, very functional and I find everything fast. Everyone can try it out on the vbulletin admin demo.

                    Before using vbulletin I tried a couple free boards but nothing to my satisfaction. I google around and found out that vbulletin is basically one of the best out there. The back-end is very easy to navigate , and in no time I was able to get the hang of it.
