    Default vBulletin question
    Hey everyone,

    I am looking for something that sounds pretty easy, since I've seen some awesome advanced vb'ers around here.

    Here's what I'm looking to do:

    I'm looking to remove the forums part of my vbulletin... I only want it so that people can register an account, and use the profile feature of this amazing software. So that people can have a profile to upload images to and message people. Nothing fancy, but rather simple like that...
    I can look into how to make the homepage revert to like a custom page that doesn't use the forums but allows the searching/indexing of users.

    Please can anyone help me?

    Ok i guess my question is why are you using VB if you arent planing to use forums? There are lot of other Website design platforms that would probably work way better for what you are wanting....

    I would highly suggest using something besides vB for this project.

    Yea, VB is not cheap and geared more towards forum. There are plenty of cheap or free CMS out there for you to give a try and test waters.

    I went through several CMS. http://www.opensourcecms.com/ Is a place to look at some. They even have demo pages setup for most.
