    Thanks very much for the info. It looks like I'll be taking the plunge and be buying two owned licenses pretty soon.

    2) is extemely simple as I think I mentioned in the thread where you asked about it, because there is already a function to exclude certain usergroups from being displayed on the Member List; it would be a matter of adding some numbers to a line in one of the files.

    3) http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ighlight=email

    Could you point me to the hack for 3) (email notification for new thread posts in subscribed forums)? I tried searching vBulletin.org, but didn't see it, maybe I wasn't searching the right terms. Also, if it's really as easy as you say to do 2), I would re-think using vB. I could probably even get along without the PM attachments hack for now if that one is a little harder to do.

    Well I guess that's strike 3 for me and my hopes to use vB to build my sites. I'm in the planning stages of doing a scholarship site and an internship site and was looking at vBulletin as a near perfect alternative to the very unimpressive classifieds scripts out there. The only half decent classifieds script I came across was e-classifieds.net, but it's cgi (resource hog and slow) and costs as much as $1,000. So, I was hoping that vBulletin might have the flexibility for me to bend it a little into a classifieds posting board, but after getting "not a feature at this time" to the 3 most important features I could think of to let me use it, I guess I will have to move on to a CMS like PostNuke for now. I also checked to see if there were hacks that addressed these issues but couldn't find any. I realize that vB is not meant to be a classifieds script, I was just hoping I could use it. Maybe in version 3.0 vBulletin will be a little more flexible in what you can set in the admin. I'll check back then. The 3 features I asked about over the last couple of weeks were:

    1. Attachments in PM's (allows a user to send a resume as a word doc directly to an employer)

    2. The ability to prevent certain usergroups from being listed in the member list. I would only want scholarship sponsors and companies listing internships to be listed and be searchable. But I also need others to be able to register so they can subcribe to and save specific posts to their CP.

    3. Email notification whenever a new scholarship or internship is posted to a specific category "forum" that a user is subscribed to.

    Anyway, thanks for the info and putting up with all my questions.

    This is not a feature at this time. If it's just a small group of users that you want to get emails then you could add their email addys manually under the forum's Moderation Options.

    E-mail notification when subcribing to a "forum"?

    I need to know if you can set vB to do email notification to users subcribed to a particular forum whenever a new thread is added to that forum. I tried subcribing to forums on this board and other vB boards and it seems that this feature does not exist. I realize that most people would never want to do this, but this feature would be necessary for my site. Thanks.
