| vBadvanced Dynamics
|Designed with versatility in mind, vBadvanced Dynamics is a highly configurable, multi-purpose product that can be used to catalog and display a database of just about anything*. It creates a completely separate section from your vBulletin forums for articles, file sharing, user blogs, a simple categorized list of recipes, and/or just about everything in between. Features include an advanced module system, unlimited categories, attachment uploads, ratings, custom fields, over 50 usergroup permissions, user favorites, e-mail subscriptions, SEO friendly URLs, and much more with over 250 configuration settings. Have more than one use in mind? Our optional and unique "Multiple Instance" licensing option makes it easy to install multiple copies of the software that are completely independent from one another on the same web site.

"Multiple Instance" Licenses
Do you have more than one use in mind for vBadvanced Dynamics? No problem! We also offer an additional license option called a "Multiple Instance" License. A Multiple Instance License is an additional one time fee of $24.99, and will grant you the right to run as many instances of vBadvanced Dynamics as you would like, though they must be limited to the same web site or domain name (If you have multiple web sites that you would like to use vBa Dynamics on, a separate license is still required for each web site). Each secondary instance will have it's own templates, phrases, database tables, and etc so it will be just like running a completely separate and independent product.
