  • CMS Only Site?

    Can the CMS be used as a stand-alone feature?

  • #2
    I have never seen anyone do that. All the thread comments are stored in a forum, so you do need to have at least one forum in order for the cms to work.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

          If all you want a CMS there are, quite honestly, far more powerful, open, extensible choices.

          People buy a vBulletin CMS because it's part of the vBulletin forum, not the other way 'round.

            Sure, I understand your point entirely. My question was more, "can it be done", rather than only ever using vB for the CMS. I was wondering if it was possible to run the CMS on its own for a while and add the other modules when ready.

            If I wanted a CMS-only option, I would probably go for Joomla, unless anyone can recommend anything better.

            Thanks for your help.

              The CMS is a "plugin" just as the blog.
              The forum acting as the base so you can plug them in.


              vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

                Concrete5 would be worth a look.
