Michael Morris 31 May 2007 13:14

It's something I do intend to address. It is near to the bottom of the list of things to do though.

I found my first bug :D In login.php, line 4, you still have the ./forum instead of our custom thingo

Michael Morris 31 May 2007 16:27

That will be easy to fix. I'll address it next version.

Luky 31 May 2007 17:17

I already fixed it :P

If I decide to install and run this now, how easy is it to upgrade to future versions? Will it require any "reworking" on my part?

Michael Morris 31 May 2007 19:21

Once this goes gold upgrades will be uploading the code and installing the vbulletin product-jos.xml -- the joomla installer should never need to be ran more than once.

During beta though I will make no promises about how easy or difficult an upgrade path is.

That said, I am hoping to see a final now within a couple weeks. We're getting very close to done.

This couldn't have come at a better time. I've been dying (slowly for several years) for a CMS that integrates with VB and has its own article system.

I've never used Joomla before though, so let me get this straight: all of the site content is stored in one database (the Joomla db) and all of the forum content in another (the VB db), right?

What about news? Is that stored in the Joomla db or does it pull threads from a specific forum (a la VBA style)?

From what I understand this is basically Joomla but using VB users and VB skins?

Joomla's tables are in the same database. It's content is its own in the initial release. I will be writing a component that will be able to transfer content between vbulletin and Joomla - I'm not sure whether I'm going to make that component available for free or for a nominal charge though.

Am I missing something or is that contradictory?

I guess what I'm asking is if there's a way to store all of the news/articles/comments/whatever posted in Joomla in the VB database - so I don't have to do multiple restores or worry about security issues.

And is this ^ what you'll be charging for?

Michael Morris 31 May 2007 20:13

You're confusing databases with tables. A database is a collection of tables. When Joomla and vbulletin are installed together in one database they have a total of some 149 tables (88 or so for vbulletin, the rest are Joomla's).

Most content of vbulletin is stored on it's post table. Most content in Joomla is stored on its content table. Moving content between the two tables (Between being an 'article' and being a 'post') isn't going to be in the initial release. In most installations it won't be necessary.

Mikhailtech 31 May 2007 20:18

I see. Thank you for the explanation. My reason for asking was due to the search mechanics that (I assume) are different for both vb and joomla? Or will a search in either be able to search information found in all tables?

<- not a coder

Also, I realize this is a beta version, but I need to get my site back up and running stat (message board is already active). Would you recommend waiting until the gold release comes out or is it safe (from a database information storing perspective) to go ahead and install/run it now? As you can tell I'm pretty anxious to get started.
