the forum is expected to go down tonight for a platform changing experience. i am tired of ipb and plan to switch to vb... hopefully this would not bother you guys. would result in a lot of dead links though. :(

Hurray! Finally! We don't mind the broken links, but seriously, all of us in here were fed up of IPB.

oh yeah i was looking for a solution for that. :D search engine friendly redirects. even if they are to the homepage of the forum. :D

you will be buying a new license again.[/b]

heh. have no option. the open source forum softwares are simply not good enough. VB comes highly recommended from a source and i expect to get some help on making the forum more seo friendly. i simply have to kick some guy's ass with this forum.

i am already using that software on tradeshade. it is fabulous i agree. but good for support based forums. also translators are disappointingly buggy. also a lot of data would be lost in shifting to that software. it simply is too bare and basic. and not even in beta. :)

i would of course keep the backup. running it on a seperate domain? umm would be tough considering the license of this forum is tied to the domain and to move that to a new place could be a bit too complicated. :confused:

would think abt it. if it's not that complicated.

i did some testing and it seems to be complicated. but my IPB license is anyways going to expire on april 15. so i have more reasons to move now than ever.
