  • Will vBulletin work for Me?

    Hi. I'm very new to web design, so please forgive me if these questions are poorly phrased or have obvious answers.

    My brother and I are about to launch a subscription-based service. A big part of our goal is establishing a website with a blog and a forum that has both a free section and a section behind a paywall. Will vBulletin be able to do that? Does/How does vBulletin manage payments/subscriptions?

    Thank you for your time, and if you have any suggestions I would be grateful to hear them.

    Yes, paid subscriptions are available in vB5 (since vB 5.0.1 I think). You can also use the permission management to let certain usergroups get access to specific content.

    I recommend you to try the official Demo Version. It gives you a good overview of the software and you can check out, if vB 5 meets your requirements.

      I believe the vb5 demo is broken!

        Oh yes, it is "currently unavailable", but I am sure it will be back online soon.
