Anyone has experience with phpproads?

Hi

I have just purchased an application from phpproads. I recently engaged an IT vendor to work on SEO. However, he gave me feedback that the system is crap and not SEO friendly at all. He even offered me to develop a new platform using other application at the cost I have offered him for SEO.

Anyone here have experience using it? The same company also offered phpprobid, an auction site.

I contacted the company but no reply. Should I consider changing to a new system?

i donot have personal experience with them but
you contact them for sales and there is no reply that is initial signal of danger and sign you should not buy service for them…
I cannot say it is true in all the cases but is true in most of the cases …mostly in hosting business…

Thanks a good idea. Will try it out. Cheers

when you buy script know about how much control will you have over the system
From my experience…
for eg,script like phpcow…every thing is encrypted…you have little control over script…
you cannot sell the license…
you cannot even move your script to another subdomain of same domain…(forget another domain)
support is not good…they wont publish your testimonial if you dont praise them…

so be careful about these when you buy scripts…
plus
make sure code is oop(not mandatory but will help much in expansion and all…)…peope still are selling script that only works with global registers on :slight_smile:

i need a system that support marketplace that allows sell, buy digital products, would you recommend any script or company for this?

Try OScomerce or something similar.
They are popular and have allot of components (like an SEO one)

dont try oscommerce…from our experience we have found that it is prone to hack if not updated regularly…
plus i dont think oscommerce has any such features for digital downloads and selling…

may be for photos,videos you can use photostore…

for software there was one good now…i forgot the name…or may be you can look into magento with plugin for that feature…not bad at all…
or you can ask this question in script section of this forum …
u will get better replies…

everything that you can get like that is prone to hack if not updated regularly, the only way around it is to have your own custom solution, made by someone competent enough.
