    Always safe to double-check. You can find the requirements here: https://www.vbulletin.com/faq.php#faq-125

    By purchasing a license, could I access the administration panel from any computer with internet access?
    Yes.

    Also, does the mobile app provide only admin access, or is it for the creation of an actual user app, where users can access the forum easily?
    The Mobile App (https://www.vbulletin.com/index.php?do=mobile) is for the creation of an actual user app. However, yes, it does provide administrative tools.

    You can view examples below:
    Mobile App for iOS: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vbull...401734344?mt=8
    Mobile App for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bulletin&hl=en

    Is there another (cheaper) method to allow easy access and navigation of the forum with mobile devices?
    vBulletin (both Forum Classic and Publishing Suite) does come with a Mobile "Style" which should work on modern smart devices. vBulletin also includes Forum Runner which is an Android and iOS app for your users to use. It is similar to the Mobile Suite, with the exception that it's more of a "generic" app. It is free for license owners and your users pay a small fee to use it.

    You can read more about the Mobile Style here: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/cont...License-Owners
    You can read more about Forum Runner here: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/cont...s-Forum-Runner and here: http://forumrunner.net/

    Need Discussion Forum for Non-Profit

    I have been wanting to add a simple discussion forum to a non-profit's national website (a Fraternity) to allow members of all of our Chapters to discuss topics such as service projects, recruitment strategies, general discussion, etc. I'm fairly certain that our website can host the vBulletin forum, I'm just wondering a few things. By purchasing a license, could I access the administration panel from any computer with internet access? Also, does the mobile app provide only admin access, or is it for the creation of an actual user app, where users can access the forum easily? Is there another (cheaper) method to allow easy access and navigation of the forum with mobile devices? I just don't think the development fee and yearly fee for Apple is something we'd be interested in; since we are a non-profit, it's hard to justify that kind of yearly expense. What are my options for this? Thanks for any help.
