    What happens to old vb albums if upgraded to xf w/out 'media' addon?

    Thanks for your insight, Tracy. I'm still chewing on it all and looking into various options.. I couldn't afford to buy IPS just to convert from VB5, may as well as pay someone else to convert it at that cost. I'll look at option of getting XF, losing a month's data (since I updated to vb5, thus...

    What happens to old vb albums if upgraded to xf w/out 'media' addon?

    Tracy, I completely understand your point and wouldn't expect different companies products to be identical. However, uploading images and having your own bit of space for an album is hardly ground-breaking technology... It's standard for most socially orientated sites. Likewise having an...

    What happens to old vb albums if upgraded to xf w/out 'media' addon?

    So vb5 = $250 for life of product XF with all addons (and still not as many functions as vb5) = $260 + annual renewals. Hmmm, I'm sure you can see why I'm having second thoughts...

    Is there no 'buy as a package & save x%' option?

    What happens to old vb albums if upgraded to xf w/out 'media' addon?

    well that's rather off putting... I'm not opposed to spending a few more pennies, but if every little addon that should by today's standards be defaults, is going to be charged both as a standalone product and at renewal, that's just bumping things up considerably. Add to the cost of...

    As it says on the tin, what happens to all my members' photo albums and attachments if I don't purchase the media addon?

    URLs & old VBSEO likes?

    And do you resolve URL issues as per the first post? I have to be honest, the 350 seemed rather an expense but the 170 quoted for the import alone seemed much more reasonable.

    What differentiates sibling from child node?

    Yeah, that's what I thought... I just expected sibling to visually at the same level. So in essence, it's another parent forum.

    Thanks for the prompt response... I understood everything you replied with aside form this one bit; Could you elaborate somewhat for me, please?

    What differentiates sibling from child node?

    They seem to be moreorless the same as far as I can tell from the demo you've kindly afforded potential customers?

    URLs & old VBSEO likes?

    If I purchase XF now... what about the URLs? Can they be made similar to VBSEO, VB5 or such? (vb5 has broken links from around the internet) Can old VBSEO "likes" be imported? (it would be nice for members to retain their current likes/reputation) [I have a backup of my DB from a couple of...

    Moving from VB5

    Yep, already had a look & spoke with a chap, thanks :) The import seems reasonable given there's no s/w import available from XF themselves, but I'm still chewing on things for the moment.

    Moving from VB5

    And how much would someone like @Claudio charge for a forum with about 350k posts, 2k members? I did look at the link in your sig - but it's the wrong link (it's for the monthly maintenance service) so can't really tell from here.
