    WordPress bridge for XF2?

    I know there is a popular bridge for XF1, I can't find it atm. I recently installed XF1 on a dev site to play around with it, saw that XF2 was just released, so I'm upgrading that now. But my original plan was to use a bridge for WP/XF for an existing site. Now that XF2 is out, will the WP...

    vbulletin to XF conversion questions...

    I won't have them side by side in the sense that both will exist as active forums. I will stop using vb once the XF import is finished. I will remove all vb files, directories, and its db once XF has imported all that data. I was just wondering if there would be any challenges to keeping the...

    vbulletin to XF conversion questions...

    Thanks for the replies last question... Should the XF forum be in a separate directory from the original vb forum? Does it matter? The benefit of having them in the same directory seems to be SEO, but I don't know how much of an issue that is.

    vbulletin to XF conversion questions...

    1) Will the conversion recreate the current vb forum structure? Or do I need to have those forums in place prior to the conversion? 2) Will both forums be up and running at the same time (using different directories of course) until I remove vBulletin from the site? I ask because I'd like to...

    Importing from vBulletin 4 questions

    After importing, would it be a good idea to clean up the database from vb leftovers to ensure the site is running as smoothly as possible? Also, does the import feature allow using a new prefix for the XF tables? I figured that might be a good way to be able to quickly identify the tables I no...

    Importing from vBulletin 4 questions

    I am thinking of importing my vb4 site and renewing my XF license to do so. Before I make this seemingly big jump however, I had a few questions... Intention: I plan to integrate XF and WordPress for the new site, using the old forum content from vB4. I want to create a community...
  8. Apokalupsis Gaming Social Network

    I ought to be able to tell by the theme of the site what it is about it. If it didn't explicitly say "gaming" I'd have no idea what the site is about. It's a xf forum so it's not all bad. ;) But Wing is right, it needs some style, some design to it.
  9. Apokalupsis is No Longer Worksafe.

    vb does the same thing and has been for at least a couple years now (I've been using the spam feature for quite a while on my own vb board)...2-3 clicks and all the spam from a spammer is completely gone, just as it is in XF's feature.

    Use of output on php code

    Well, for one there is no $output variable and there is no such thing as "$output variables in php." Also, the site you are linking to is down (atm anyway). Also, running that code on my test server works just fine, so I'm not really sure what the problem is.

    XF 1.1 How to mass delete or prune users?

    I have an inactive board that I used for testing purposes only a few months back. I now want to start really learning XF and possibly use it for a new community. However, over the last few months, I've received about 1,300 spam posts from about 110 spambots. So... 1) Is there a way to mass...

    vb5 beta released, and...

    But why start that way? Why not use "best practices" from the beginning? This just seems to me like saying "Let's just get it out there quickly, even if we use outdated or inferior practices, we'll worry about cleaning it up later." If you use proper coding or design technique to begin...
