Question List of Plugins, Extensions

Hello,

I am Close before buying vBulletin.
Was testing it the last 2 days and I like the Administration Features and the social Groups.

But 1 Thing I couldn`t find.
When buying the Software, which Extensions or Plugins are available?

For me buying the Forum Software is ok, but I wouldn`t want to pay for single Plugins.

So is there a list of available Plugins?

Can I install the Plugins via the Administrator Pannel from a list - or do I have to download each Plugin by my own and install it?

Are we talking about vBulletin 4? There are a bunch of free add-ons here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=245

You install the plugins manually: you upload files (in case you have to) and import a .xml file in the admin control panel.

But you want to use those plugins. I don't blame you. Actually this is the well known saying for plugins at all (any forum, any framework). Similar to "I'm willing to buy the house but I wouldn't want to pay for furnitures".

Really can't understand the reason. Do you think that to code a plugin or design a style, is a few hours work? Believe that some plugins that you'll find here (same in other forums, same for Wordpress, same for Joomla etc), maybe are some months work. Coding for a framework is much more difficult that coding single PHP scripts because you need to read/understand and follow some special coding rules. The same applies for designing a style comparing with simple HTML templates.

As I said before. I don't blame you. I'm blaming the "defacto" that exists for plugins.

And yes, especially for vB4 you'll find a plethora of well coded plugins and styles.

Agreed to create a style for vB 4 takes probably a total of around 20-25 hours work. I always just love those who say, "Well, why can't you do it for $50.00?". Sure I'd love to get paid $2.00 an hour thanks....

I'd stay away from vbulletin 5 for at least another year.
There are loads of free plugins for vbulletin 4 and 5 here at the org.

The section is called "Products & Hooks" in vB5.

Technically speaking VB5 does not support plugins- it supports products AKA extensions. You can still add-on to it but it's a different way. Each product will have installation instructions.

As I don't have upgraded to vB5, I was unable to check it on my own, so reading about "Plugins" I thought that the all the menus under the Menu "Products & Plugins" (in vB4), has been removed.

So, talking in general, what has been removed is only the hooks?. Not that bad for me as very rarelly I used them and only for adding some menus in usercp or an additional tab in user profile, something that can be done in addons page(s). Finally it was wise that I never used the forums/threads engine for my mods.

Who knows, maybe I'll give a try, if IB reduce the upgrade price.

Since the list of existing plugins for vB5 is rather short, what would be the point of an even shorter list?
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=258

And "the majority of gurus" have (rather wisely) decided to keep their fingers off vB5.

Thanks for clarification. Can you please elaborate a bit on this comment: " "the majority of gurus" have (rather wisely) decided to keep their fingers off vB5"


cheers

There's lots of threads about this here, no need to repeat it all. Anyway, just look at the numbers of vB3 addons and vB4 addons, then compare them to the number of vB5 addons after 3 years. It really speaks for itself.

Also, participation on this site here has all but dried out.
