  • Some Questions!

    I have a few questions to ask about vBulletin. I am a newb when it come to administrating vB. Answer any questions that you are able:
    I have a general forum hosted by JustHost (so hosting the license should be fine) and i'm thinking about purchasing a vBulletin license for it.

    Here are my questions:
    -phpBB mods you download from the phpbb site. What about vB?
    -Is there a mod that allows members to spend forum cash in the forums arcade? So they can spend it on bingo, poker etc.
    -When changing my forum software is it only the section placements, posts/threads and members accounts/details that are transferred over?

    Thanks a lot in advance

        The forum and usergroup permissions in vBulletin are totally different (and a lot better) than phpBB, so you'll need to redo them. It took me forever to understand phpBB's convoluted permissions system. Once you try vBulletin I think you'll really like it.
