    Missing: Social Groups + Group-forums

    I am (still) working on going from VB to XF ;). Gosh time flies... 2001-2018 ... 17 (!) years long I was on vBulletin... 7 years too long (XF came out in 2010). I wish to be on XF for the rest of my existence or that of my community :whistle:. VB Social groups never took off on my vB 3.x powered...

    In-Discussion Chat

    What do you mean exactly? Why would an instant chat function be that different from what we have now? (Mind you, I did not use the report function on a production site yet, but I am trying out now the XF admin demo over here). It seems we can already post back and forth (as you said) easily in...

    Indicator when an user posts his/her first message on the forum

    Coincidentally... this just popped up on my screen: The system already monitors you have posted a first message. Brilliant, I was not aware of that. (Since it was 1.822 postings ago that I would have gotten that message over here ;)). So if the system already has this information, the route...

    Indicator when an user posts his/her first message on the forum

    I think these improvements that apparently came with XF 1.5 are great: User messaging improvements and welcome contact. Any worthwhile improvement that stimulates social interaction (or at least a 'community' sense/feeling) on our XF powered communities is very welcome. I think Facebook for...

    Style issue on Quick Thread - Attach files

    Not sure if it is 'as designed' but it seems there's a style issue on Quick Thread? As posted in this discussion , this is how it looks when you attach files when creating a Quick Thread: It seems that things are not aligned correctly (?), : the button

    Rework the flow, layout and phrasing

    In the next year my intention is to upgrade from VB3.8 to XF2.0. If I want to keep our VB3.8 User Albums, I understood I need to buy the XF Media Gallery. So I am interested to see (by first trying it out on www.xenforo.com) if this product will fulfill what our user-base (who are not your daily...

    vB4 Migration

    Hello Chris, Is this a standard feature of the official XF importer? So, when we want to migrate a VB3.8 board (with User Albums) to XF2.0, will our User Albums be transported to the Media Gallery?

    XF 2.0 Import from VB3.8 to XF2.0: what are the pros/cons of Retain content IDs ?

    Thanks for all these quick replies. Listening to most of the staff, it seems there is no necessity to retain them (which -as a novice- explains to me why this option is turned off by default in the ACP). Still, it is interesting to read other's practical experiences with this.

    XF 2.0 Import from VB3.8 to XF2.0: what are the pros/cons of Retain content IDs ?

    Thanks for these tips. It is indeed important for me to be able to compare things after the import. Why exactly does retaining ID's make that simpler? Can you give a practical example? Are these prune settings part of the importscript? (I don't use XF yet so I am not aware of settings like...

    XF 2.0 Import from VB3.8 to XF2.0: what are the pros/cons of Retain content IDs ?

    I see, now I realize this is also about userID's , not only threadID's.

    XF 2.0 Import from VB3.8 to XF2.0: what are the pros/cons of Retain content IDs ?

    In the new year I have the intention to finally (after 7 years :eek:) take the plunge and upgrade/migrate transform our vBulletin 3.8 installation into XenForo2.0 Reading the import manual it says: It is the only step outlined there of which I am not sure what to do. I found a single...
