    I see CG added CrowdReport to vbsetup.
    http://www.vbulletinsetup.com
    I've knew about this product before it was a product & have always known I was going to like it.
    This will most likely be what we use to power our CMS depending on how it's released.
    I know a few people in here have or post on vbulletin forums. What are your thoughts on CrowdReport from the user & admin view?

    Ps..I

    I didn't either till andy pointed that out, but still, I think "Crowdreport" is the WP Plugin which fetches the vB threads, etc..

    It looks nice, but is it fully integrated? Or is it a bridged installed of wordpress?

    I think I'am just going to wait until the vbulletin cms gets the kinks worked out, and then I'll get it instead of the crowdreport.

    To be fair, modifying and rebranding Wordpress is perfectly within the terms of its license. And I have to say that on the sites where I've used WP and vB together it was always a very positive experience.
    So if CrowdReport takes integration a step further, I'm all for giving it a shot.

    On my biggest forum I actually moved away from WP to vBCMPS anticipating a proper CMS coming from vBulletin. Well, we all know how that turned out. So now I'm stuck with that damned portal instead of a CMS.
    Is there an ETA for CrowdReport?

    I'll send Sanjay an email and let him know I'm shooting to go public March 17th, see if we can get setup by than.
    I think it's still in BETA, but he said he would setup an install to help test some functions out.

    I don't know if I'll be able to match the wordpress style up to our new style, if I can, I may still be interested in the CR front end.

    Looks like it already has a leg up on vbcms. :B
    Can't wait to see how you implement here.

    I wish the beta was open. I would really like a preview and also to be able to have an impact on the final product as a tester.
    Is there any info on what kind of license/pricing will be used?

    lol yeah... It's true though. I despise vBCMPS. I wish I had never started using it and just stuck with Wordpress or Joomla.

    here is the reply from Sanjay

    I hope he's okay with me posting it :)

    so it looks like we'll keep waiting if we want to use this on General-Forums
