I have been using vBulletin on my site for three months now and am considering to drive the content of my site's home page with a vBulletin-based portal. My host provider, PowWeb, has limited the MySQL per user connections to 3,600 and queries to 36,000 per hour, so I need to be conscious of this in making my choice of hacks, and even in deciding whether to do this or not. That said, Teck's vbMicroStats hack has been helpful in monitoring the server load, and Xenon's Optimizing Forumhome has cut down on queries by caching moderators.

I have spent probably about 10-15 hours :tired: reading and researching the various threads on this site pertaining to the four different "portal" hacks out there. By reading the plethora of posts, I know I am not alone in my confusion :confused: regarding the various features, requirements and limitations.
All of these hacks are impressive, and I applaud the work of each of their developers.

I would like this thread to be a place to compare the various feature-sets, query intensity, etc.

Please, please, please - do not make this a place to rant about how difficult something was to install, or bellyache about how many problems something has caused, because of a failure to back up a board, etc. We've all made mistakes, and placing blame when a hack works for a multitude of other people just fuels the confusion. :cry:

I'm looking for positive feedback :) that highlights each hack's strengths :cool: and weaknesses :( after installation, implementation and regular use.

Thank you!

Well, that sucks. When it took me to the original poll, I forgot what the options were, so I put in placeholders and then couldn't go back and edit.

1a = vbHome (lite)
2b = vBindex
3c = mYvBindex
4d = vbPortal

I'm sorry you feel that way, Smoothie, since searching only brought up two-by-two comparisons, or a convoluted thread of ranting. Please re-read my post to understand its positive objective in context. Not all of us are "Ultimate" hackers.

Its a misleading title my friend....

Heh, some people just can't corporate :/..

Anyways... I've been using vbHome(lite) by Teck and so far so good.. I haven't done much with it. I was also wondering which one is the best, but I know this is a matter of opinion and in the end each of us will go with the one it works best for yourself. Since I don't know much about php, I'll say they are all basically the same, the only diference is that one carries more options than the other and another issue is the way it was coded. But like I said, I'm dumb as a rock when it comes to programing.. so it doesn't really matter to me. I personally like to try each one and everyone of them and the one that fits me best, thats the one I'll choose.
