Can I use this with any forum software?

Post by Giorgios » 30 Aug 2012, 16:03

If I wanted to use this for vBulletin or IPB 3.1.4, would it work?

I thought it said it could, but wanted to check.

No it would not work only phpbb.

I can build forum hosting software for any software but it would be custom development work.

It says this on The Pricing Page:

Why not GPL?

phpBB forum script uses GPL license, so, according to GPL everything that uses phpBB code must be released as GPL.

Hovewer, this forum hosting script is a standalone application. It doesn't use any phpBB code, and it doesn't require phpBB to work. phpBB hosting script is designed to work with any software.

Yeah I can use the hosting part to build for any forum software.
But it is not magic I would have to custom build parts for each forum software.

Also, if I add mods to the hosting company, could I limit a certain mod to be used by only certain forums?

Could be possible would require custom code. Like an extra field in the database to flag that this forum is allowed this feature.

When I purchase this, Could you write a feature in my copy that does so?

Also, for things I need, Could I PM you that I would need when I buy it?

It would be extra for those features and custom work at that point. But maybe something I am open to do.
