  • VB 5 Demo Site?

    im about to update my 4.2 Suite to VB 5 Connect. Is there a test site. It seems that this forum is running on 4.2. Why would the creators of the project run on 4.2 and not the new version?

    I really want to see what the VB5 forums look like and what default skins look like.

    Also, there is an integrated download solution? Right now I am using DownloadsII. Its not the best solution for my situation but works.

    I need something very mobile friendly, as my forum is about custom mobile development.

    Thanks for any info.

      No... The attachment system works similar to VB4 attachments. It's only photo "gallery" that has really been enhanced in that now galleries can be part of posts or threads.

        I would advise against anything in beta stage with a live site.
        Wait till it goes gold then think about it.

          I would also suggest against putting beta software on a production site.

              Yeah, this is just such a huge departure from the very nice publishing suite that we have. It would probably be easier to swallow if it weren't such a drastic departure - all at once. You have completely...

              I'm a vb forum owner since 2002. vb3 was great, but lacked a CMS and so I relied on vbadvanced for years, plus some good ol' hand-coding. Eventually that got old so was excited about vb4. vb4 was rough...
