  • how to convert phpBB2 to vBulletin and other questions!!

    Hello,

    i'm planing to buy a vBulletin Board, now my questions:
    • 1.) can I "convert" my members and threads from my old phpBB 2.0.0 to the new vBulletin Board ? If yes, how ?

      2.) is there a german support resp. a german support board ??

      3.) for phpBB2 I can download design templates and language templates, it's very simple to change, is this also possible for vBB ?

      4.) are "Hacks" available and is it difficult to integrate them ?

      5.) Are Updates free of charge ? If not, how expensive are updates ?

      6.) in your opinion: what is better phpBB2 oder vBB ?


    regards,

    Schorsch

    Yes. Once you buy a license, you'll have access to the member area, and you can find convertors there

    2.) is there a german support resp. a german support board ??


    http://www.vbulletin-germany.com/

    3.) for phpBB2 I can download design templates and language templates, it's very simple to change, is this also possible for vBB ?
    Of Course!

    4.) are "Hacks" available and is it difficult to integrate them ?


    http://vbulletin.org, and it depends on the hack

    5.) Are Updates free of charge ? If not, how expensive are updates ?


    Just as long as you have an active license, you can download updates for free

      Of Course!
      Actually, vBulletin has no multi-language options....

          But you can still install different styles for different languages, for example vBulletin-Germany.com has a style file for German.

          Like Steve said, it will be much easier in vB3...

            Can we have said 1 style (in English) and another style (in Chinese) for vB3?

            If so I will be able to run bilingual version of vB on my site

              You can have an English language pack and a Chinese language pack that will translate soem vB related terminology to the appropriate language. However this is not the same as having a 'bilingual version of vB' since it will not translate the actual messages from one language to another.
