What happened to photopost?

Photopost hasn't been available for purchase for quite some time. It's hugely popular, but I can't find anything about why it's gone of it's coming back. Does anyone have any information about this? Any good options for a substitute? I've tried DB galleries, it's just not going to work.

I have Photopost on my forum and have set it up on 3 different client sites with in the last year. It has not been updated in a while but works fine.

You can still get it here.

Nope, tried that already. "PhotoPost Pro / vBGallery License is not orderable." when you click the buy link.

From what I've been told by clients of a certain hosting company I work for... per their ticket replies and the responses given by staff recently there will be no further updates or development to their products. I may or may not have the in-depth details correct yet so I'd rather not say for sure, this is speculation based on what I've seen copy/pasted in replies from the support they have active now however from what they have on the home page it seems like something occurred recently to warrant this, whatever that is I do not know.

If you visit their home page it specifically states this:
PhotoPost is not actively accepting new license orders or renewals. For existing customers, please contact us with any questions, or, feel free to post to the forums if you have active members area access.

So while I can appreciate Richie sharing the link to the page where you can purchase... I'd certainly contact them directly to inquire before purchasing using any of those links.

Edit: ^ I overlooked your reply, don't know how I missed it but thanks for sharing, now we know and more importantly now I do lol .

*Normally we don't discuss paid modifications on this site unless its a very general inquiry and never really pricing honestly. With that being said, every few years a particular and popular software such as vBSEO and now Photopost either end up buckling or "simmering" down for whatever reason whether it be expected or completely out of the blue then we're left with tons of vBulletin owners asking questions and just needing to know so I don't see an issue discussing this here but unless you know for sure please don't speculate and if you do speculate in the slightest do as I did above and be sure to iterate the fact that its in your opinion OR that you're not 100% sure or simply don't know for sure .

I'd like to leave this thread open for future discussion on those who happen to be curious about this but since its a third-party paid modification I'm moving it into Community Lounge and out of the vB4 forums respectively because it's borderline allowable so to me that's considered off-topic at best. Again I'm going to re-iterate that I'm only leaving this open for a positive and helpful discussion to take place if this thread becomes inundated with poorly worded or disruptive replies it will be closed immediately and thanks for your understanding on that!

Edit: For an alternative you can try DB Tech's Gallery product.

They are very rude. I used the contact us form and never heard anything back. I found my user name and password to enter the members area. They said my license expired. I tried to order a new one and bingo nothing in the shopping cart. I tried to call the sales phone number and the message said it was a blocked number. You would figure after making lots of money they would be more helpful. M2C and rant.

Eric I don't believe they're what they used to be i.e. seems like something happened that they do not wish to disclose - after all why state on the home page that you've quit selling your products unless something is "up" good/bad/ugly - what that is we may never know or perhaps will find out soon enough. So calling them rude for lack of replies when things are clearly not as they used to be is your prerogative and perception but not ours . I don't think (unsure of this) that they even have the same support staff anymore and if so it's very limited at best.

On a side note yet related: Remember everyone, any third-party modification can be susceptible to any number of scenarios including this one so assuming you'll have a modification and support "forever" despite license agreements is not a good way to think about modifications. Internet based companies have more chances for failure than most in my opinion.

Sorry but the rude is because I have a license from them that expired in 2012. I bought it and had the owner paid to install it on my site. I would change the message on the phone to "sorry we are no longer in business" or something close to that. Why continue to have a website with buy a new license and then don't let you do it. Sorry to be negative. I really liked the product and wish I had downloaded the executable so that I could install it again.

I don't believe they have been actively supporting their product in a few years now. Onto other things in life...
