One of my primary sites using a pretty souped up version of vB 3.8.1 and PhotoPost 6.01.
I have over 500K posts, 17K members, 15K photos with 60K comments on photos.
From the beginning of the vB4 release I knew that wasn't it for me. No more vB, but what?
I also very much need to turn my main site from straight html to Joomla. I use Joomla for all my other websites and will not consider any other CMS option.
So, I need something will match my vB forum in stability, functionality and ease-of-use and ease-of-moderation AND includes a sophisticated gallery integration AND allows me to share login information between forum/gallery and Joomla.
Is xenForo a possibility at this point? Can I import/migrate forum data and gallery data given my configuration?
I've looked at IPB, but it looks like Joomla integration is not possible.
The Kunena forum -- native to Joomla just isn't mature enough yet and there really is no great Joomla photo gallery solution -- I've tried them all.
When it comes to Joomla integration, the real ideal is a strong integration with JomSocial, but at this point, I would settle for just user login integration.
I'm getting desperate for a solution.
Thanks for any suggestions/advice.
