vbDrupal vs. vbAdvanced vs. vbPortal vs. Joomla

I'm newbie and must decide which CMS to get if I go with vbulletin. Please tell me the pros and cons of each. I'm overwhelmed with info at the point and need advice. Thank you. What would you do?

first, you need to make a list of the features YOU need... each portal is built different and provide different results... vBadvanced is the only one to be really built from vBulletin.. the others are transitions points or bridges...

How do I compare what features each of them have? It would be great to see a list of things I might want to use so that I can make those decisions. It's tough because I have never administered a forum before.

joomla is full of security holes you should not use that unless you want your server flooded with exploiting attempts

why not try 'Subdreamer' as an option for CMS.

Hi emaij, I am quite a strong supporter of vBdrupal basically due to the Drupal platform and its ability to integrate very well with Vbulletin

there is a steep learning curve with vbdrupal however it is well worth the time invested. A little warning beforehand, the chances of wanting to give up are high and perseverance is needed.

The developers of vbdrupal do things voluntarily however most thoroughly, there is no rushed process and what they deliver is of the highest standard

the features are too numerous to mention in such a space however

Blogs
full CMS

are available

Cheers

ps.. I also use vBadvanced with my set-up, however vBadvanced is not CMS and cannot be compared to vBdrupal, there is no comparison. I use it mainly for display of vBadvanced blocks on my forums however vBdru has its own block system as well, so there is no need for me to actually use vBadvanced however I also have other hacks functioning with the forums

vjoomla will be better than vbdrupal ... as vbdrupal is quite hard to use.
vbportal is plain jane and if you should probably just use webtemplates. vbportal hasn't had any meaningful advancement for 3 years.
vbadvanced is what it is. Reasonable, but nothing great. It's much better than jelsoft's offering (nothing).
vBCMS exists, it's no better than vdadvanced, and it's in german.
Subdreamer ? No idea.

I would go with VBAdvanced, it's quite easy to customize, and robust, a short while ago version 3.0 was released, which makes customization even easier. Now you can add custom module positions anywhere you want.

i'm not sure about comparing it with other systems though, i don't have a lot of experience with them, all I can say is that I'm very satisfied with vbadvanced.
