Excuse me if I have been bit by the idiot bug, but I have searched, and the old link to a 2 week UBB demo is not functioning. Is there still such an animal?

I'm getting a 404 from this link.

Probably need to contact the vendor.
info@ubbcentral.com

That is a old page that probably is not supported anymore.

Thanks for the reply, I'll email them, but I am confused, which is easy. smirk

In a nutshell can you tell me what has changed in the last year or so? I swear that it was just in the last year or so I was able to sign up for a demo at the link I posted. Ownership or something? Sorry, I don't follow these forums or UBB very closely but a customer was in the market for forum software so I set up php for them, and wanted to let them try UBB also.

TIA

UBB Systems has owned the UBB since June 2011, since then there have been the following versions:
Version 7.5.8 (November 29, 2013)
Version 7.5.7 (December 12, 2012)

Even if the demo is still alive.
They way it did work was the vendor setup a installation on their server and gave you admin rights to it. I believe it was for something like 10 days.

The only download was a test script which I think is still there.
But it was just a php script that ran and checked if your server software was compatible with ubb.

Now if you go back to like the year 1998 there was a demo ubb classic that you could download and use.
Then there was a trial version for a short time.

Not the answer I wanted to hear, but thanks to all for replying. I understand it's all beyond your control.
