Considering XenForo to replace vBulletin

    I am working with a site that has vBulletin 3.x. I am not sure of the exact version number. I'd like to convert it to something modern, supported, and well liked. XF seems to fit that mold. The sites stats are: Threads: 9,223; Posts: 87,267; Members: 2,932. That seems rather small compared to some I see in the forum here.

    There is currently some weirdness with our register.php being spammed. I imagine this has to do with the version level and vulnerabilities. Would this issue convert over to XF if we switch?

    Does XF contain built-in CAPTCHA or some other human verification? I'd like to keep spammers at bay as best as I can.

    I checked the site and all version levels are where they need to be for a XF conversion.

    Yes, there are built in captcha systems - reCaptcha and Q&A.

    As well as many other spam management tools.

    Thanks. I appreciate that info. Which section of the forum here would be best for plug-in questions and conversion questions? I feel pretty confident I will recommend going with XF.

    @tallgntlmn , post them here for now. You won't be able to access the one @Amaury mentioned until you're a customer.
