I think most people would prefer a seperate section - plus, don't forget that systems like PhotoPost give you alot more flexibility you can't get with what I described.

lol it goes without say it would be a seperate directory
ie a gallery php / files / but better intergration
most major hacks have seperate directories anyway in the example of ushop

vB-powered products do not fare well in separate directories for a slew of reasons; this will definitely be in the root vB directory (but follow vBMS-style file naming...vbms.php, vbms_read.php, vbms_new.php...i.e., prefixes).

It is rediculous to expect that. If integration (or any other feater) is offered, it should work 100% out of the box or the feature shouldn't be included. You would never hear a comment like that coming from any of the vb developers. You guys should worry more about making a quality product instead of just "way ahead of any other applications".

yeh i hear that saying way ahead of others limits the potential of the product because you measure the quality of the product by how much better you are than the rest

so its good why make it better etc
but i don't think MPDEV is sitting on his laurels either

and i also agree to the comment about 100% out the box however
it has to be noted that Photopost wasn't created with just vbulletin in mind
hence why the intergration problem in the first place.
even so after lots of hacking / changes i got my photopost working to a good standard

Its a double edged sword because fair enough i would like it to be fully intergrated with vbulletin , but maybe for smaller projects i'd use an IPB or WBB
its good to know that i can use the same software on all of the forums
saves me searching i can simply buy a new licence

hmm i hear Photopost 4.8 is making good advances

Even configuring vB to your liking requires a little effort. Certainly no more effort is needed to integrate PhotoPost into your environment.

i think we need an faq for generally used intergrations on photopost like
the navbar , gallery link in postbit

because i remember on the photopost / dev site i had to search quite a bit
to get answers

thats where the real effort was , and not in the actual coding
for example if i had those instructions from the very start it wouldn't have taken half as long

for example the header intergration was relatively simple compared to some of the other stuff

also if i knew from the beginning that photopost would intergrate easier with it being in the same database i would have just done that from the beginning

There is an integration FAQ which outlines the steps in the PhotoPost forum which is stuck to the top of the Installation forum:

http://www.photopost.com/members/for...ad.php?t=97523

I think you are referring to some of the mods which were coded with same db integrations - not PhotoPost integration itself which can easily be in seperate dbs.

its not what i meant but i know what you mean
i was more towards the level of intergration that i have in terms of
postbit and profile links to gallery

ps i hope you don't take offense to this but i seem to be getting better photopost support here then i would at the official photopost site

haha - well, we're just talking here; the support staff is very capable, although not all of them have extensive vb experience. Heck, even myself only got started recently with photopostdev.com!

Ha! And exactly which applications has vb been designed to integrate with?

As developers of a gallery application, we've accepted that for now at least, we're playing catch up to forum applications, since every site had a forum before they looked at getting PhotoPost. That meant we had to offer user database integration with existing galleries, otherwise users would have to login twice. Going beyond that, we now offer extensive integration with VB3 and Threads, allowing user selectable styles in PhotoPost that draw from your forum styles, showing photos and gallery listings on your forum page, etc.

As versions progress, the integrations will get better and easier to implement.

This is VB3 integrated with PhotoPost:

why do u hate the member gallery so much?
