  • Vbulletin 5 CMS in action

    Hello!
    I have vbulletin 4, and my site is strongly working with CMS, and I know at the begining V5 didn't have support for CMS.
    Does this last versio have CMS support?
    Is it possible for me to upgrade forum and cms?
    And finally, can you privede me with a link of a site that uses vbulletin 5 cms?
    Or is there a demo, or something...
    Thanks!

    It is correct that the initial versions of vB5 (5.0.0 - 5.0.5) did not have the CMS. However it has been added back in vB 5.1.0.


    Is it possible for me to upgrade forum and cms?
    Yes. Bear in mind though that vB4 plugins -- if you use any -- usually do not work in vB5 anymore since vB5 has a different code structure.


    And finally, can you privede me with a link of a site that uses vbulletin 5 cms?
    This site for example uses the CMS (as well as Blogs, which you also know from vB4). Click on the Blogs and on the Articles Link in the main navigation.


    Or is there a demo, or something...
    There is! http://www.vbulletin.com/en/vb5-trial

        I use both the CMS and the blogs with vB5.

        If you upgrade you'll have to watch out for the fact that vB5 does not have the "publish on [future date]" feature that vB4 has in the CMS and blogs. So if you upgrade all your future blogs that your users have put up to publish on a future date Tweetdeck style will immediately go live and you'll have to manually unpublish them.

            Would strongly urge you to create a copy of your database as a "test site" which is allowed by the license agreement and upgrade that to VB5 first, so you can see the results in private before you commit to upgrading your public site. You'll have a better idea what changes you may need and what changes to the software you may not have expected.

                At the moment the officially supported languages are German, French and Spanish.

                  I'm sorry there is no official Italian support. We can make the best of it with Google Translate though.
