    I imagined that would be the case. Just thought the feature might be shown, but greyed out or something.

    Looks like we'll probably go ahead and part with some cash then

    Yes - see above. It won't appear in the Demo as these have some features/options disabled for security reasons. Also, we're unable to setup Sphinx for every demo that's created.

    Digging through google it turns up a page in the documentation: https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...e_sphinx_linux

    This lists being there in vb5.0.4 but it doesn't appear on the demo site as an option. Is sphinx search still available in vb5.2.4?

    Files and instructions to install Sphinx in vB5 are available within the download package. There's also instructions within our online manual here:

    Thanks Trevor. I was a bit premature. I setup a demo and found that

    But there's one other thing I'm looking for. We use sphinx search as it's been blisteringly fast at searching and extremely good at matching TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) that are used an awful lot on our forum. I've tried searching on here and found nothing about sphinx... but if I google search it returns a link to a post on here about sphinx! http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...eparate-server

    So I'd like to know more, but can't get any results from here - so I guess you're not using sphinx

    vB5 has Akismet and Stop Forum Spam built into it.

    Well maybe if I'd fired up a demo site first I'd have found this Looks like paid subscriptions are in.

    I'll have to go check out the anti-spam stuff now.

    Paid Subscriptions and Spam

    We're a long time user of vb4 and looking to get started with vb5. Over the years the mods used have diminished somewhat but there are a few key features that we do need. One of them being paid subscriptions. When vb5 came out this wasn't possible and I can't find any reference to it still. Is this still not a feature?

    I've also taken steps to defend against spam and have been mostly successful using akismet to do so. What anti-spam features are within vb5?
