Most probably Jive.
Agreed Shadab, looks like Jive looking at the source code:
Not a software I tend to see too often... needed to look that one up.
I am trying to get someone extremely familiar with those apple support forums to try out the xf UI.
Jive is aimed towards their market. Dell moved from Jive to Telligent a while back. They refused to look at vBulletin and Invision Power Board. Not sure why, I'll see if I can find the post about it.
IIRC Jive = big bucks?
They didn't! Too much Christmas kaos, and not enough time.
There was another person I asked about 'forums' and after finding a random forum on the internet they said a forum looked sorta like google groups which they did occasionally use for work. I checked out google groups for a bit, and I'm not sure overall the quality is as high as forums are. I found a few 'google groups' that were actually old 'use group' feeds/content filled with low quality spam.
I found a post on xf.com which said it may be in the $1000 range, but no prices listed. "contact them for quote" is on the jive site.
Highly doubt it. For some reasons, solutions like XF, IPB, vB, phpBB, etc. just are rarely, if ever, used for large corporations. This isn't always the case, and don't ask me why it isn't as widely used as it perhaps should be. But you'll find things like Jive and Lithium powering some of the largest corporate boards, if they aren't alreayd using a totally customized solution, which is oftentimes the case.
The goal was not to convert Apple support forums to xf, the goal was to gather feedback about xf UI compared to the Apple support forums UI.
