    Why doesnt the cloud have the 37 themes and 11 plugins core like the php trial?

    Theres NOTHING on cloud worth 39 a month!

    I was expecting at least a theme that was beyond 1999!!

    Any free themes/pluggins to go with the cloud?

    I've moved this to the correct section. Please check before posting. :)

    The SEPHP product is a completely different product. It is for social networking and has a lot of features, yes. It also has more server requirements as those features require more resources. 

    The SE Cloud product is a Reddit or Twitter clone which is geared towards news aggregation and quick posting. It is a much lighter product that uses less resources and does have different features than SEPHP.

    We do have improvements planned for cloud. If you find it doesn't suit you right now, you could try our SEPHP version and see if that's better for your needs.

    We also have a feature request section for both products. If you have suggestions, you could submit feature requests (one request per thread) in order to help improve it.

    Cloud version does not support plugins in a classic sense. This is the option if you need to get pinterest or reddit style community quickly and without any hosting or setup troubles.

    If you want to have the full control over the data and code and a way to make any modification you should consider SE PHP. Yesterday we have released a plugin that add SE Cloud functionality to SE PHP https://www.socialengine.com/marketplace/app/discussions

    Welcome to the community, oldmankabob!

    Cloud is a different product than SE. But the reason why you don't have the same themes, is because there's no relation to the products itself. Social Engine doesn't host their own software, which is why cloud is a paradoxal anomaly.
