    One of the big things that I do on my forums is coding custom php pages. It's pretty easy to set these up in VB right now and have them fit right into the forum as a link from the menu on the top. How easy is it going to be to set these up within XF?

    Here's an example of a page we did in vb: http://www.shadowedsoul.net/forums/_ssdb/guildinfo_roster.php

    If you are used to vB's way, then you will find that there is a learning curve with XenForo, as it uses the Model View Controller (MVC) method of Object Orientated Programing (OOP). Once you pick it up, you will find it much easier, and quicker, to create your own pages.

    I'm very well versed with the MVC method as I use that on projects built on CakePHP and Zend so it should just be a small adjustment period. Having learned most of my coding in C++ and VB Studio I started with OOP so it's not a big jump. It will more be just a matter of picking up the XenForo API and structures. Good info :D and it makes me more confident about implementing this as a solution for our web forums.
