  • vBulletin = Free?

    is there a free version of vBulletin? If so can someone give me a link to it? Also does vBulletin have the sub forums option? Also is there a invision board to vBulletin convertor?

    vBulletin != Free

    You can purchase it here

    Yes, your vBulletin forums can have sub forums.

    Yes, there is an Invasionboard importer.

        Sorry Zeal, vBulletin isn't free. Its only $160.00 for an owned license (meaning for life) and you can pay 30.00 (optional) to get newer updates for a year.

        My 2 cents....its WORTH EVERY PENNY!

              Because, like me;

              1; i don't know if my site will be alive after a year
              2; not much money
              3; if i didn't like it, or found a better software later it's not as much money down the drain.

              my 2cents.
              when/if it comes to renewing it, i'll probably buy an owned one then.

                I agree, with nebby. I purchased a 1year lease, due to a few reasons.

                1)Money was the thing for me, since i had alot of other things to pay for.

                2)I didn't know how long i'd be running a site for, plus i'm not planning on running any other sites within the near future that will need a community, one is enough

                3)I can easily update, if for any reason i feel i need to update but for me, i have no Quarrels having a copyright footer. If my community grows within the year, i'd purchase the full License.


                Those are some reasons i chose the leased License.

                  I purchased a leased license when I started.

                  Starting a new site always has a risk, if it doesn't work out your going to be $75 more out of pocket.

                    Maybe I'm wrong but the owned license doesn't give you the right to take off the VBulletin Copyright footer, I have a owned license and I am pretty sure I was told it has to stay. I imagine they have some "other" fee if you want to completely remove it but I was always led to believe it has to be at the bottom.

                    Am I wrong?

                      He didn't say that he wanted to remove the copyright footer, just that he doesn't have a problem with the copyright footer.

                        Well there once was a vBulletin Lite version but it got discontinued. And vBulletin's worth the price. It's just... excellent

                          No, he didn't say that. It just looked like he was saying if he wanted to remove it and his community grows he would just buy the Owned License, and that is where I believe he is wrong about the copyright.

                          Maybe I read too far between the lines...

                          I hope one of the admins comes in to set the copyright issue straight. I'd like to know now for my own reference.

                            The copyright must remain in the footer with both the Leased and Owned versions of the software. If you wish to remove the copyright you can add a branding free option to your license for the additional cost of $120.00 (prices subject to change).
