What are the package features when you buy xenForo? Were getting ready to move a very popular sports forum away from vbulletin. I understand about the special addons I can choose to install or add if I want. Searching for the bare bone all ready included in xenForo.
Thanks I was thinking more in line with what may be missing in xenForo that vbulletin includes. Even with a large sports forum we never did any addons. We ran vbulletin bare out of the box and never seen the need to use any addons. We started the forum using Matt Scripts guest book and turn it into a forum way back in 1996. We move to Yabb 1999 and have used a few other forum software before we moved over to vbulletin. But unless vbulletin does a complete rewrite it's time to move on.
The only problem for some members was getting to grips with the fact that they really don't need Tapatalk any more. (Although I think you can have it on xenforo). I hate TT and couldn't wait to ditch it.
Converting CMS articles to resources (there may be an importer for that though but I wasn't aware there might be at the time)
What I did though was copy and paste the articles, but there was only a handful tor two. Those by other members I used a change author addon. Then made sure I had redirects in .htaccess
Dealing with PMs.
No problem if you don't want to limit the number, but I needed an addon that allows a conversation quota, and the only one I now of is paid for and is quite expensive if all you need it for is the inbox quota. If you can persuade your members to export and delete their PMs (in and out) before the migration it could be useful. If you do want a conversation quota, you then need another addon for exporting.
Not a big problem this, but you need to search and replace youtube embeds, there's a really good addon which will do this and you only need to run it once.
Thanks Mr Lucky! I Truly believe the one reason my forum is popular is because of all the great members and we have a clean simply forum without all the whistles. But at the same time, just by looking at my Facebook group that has over 2,000 members I'm notice a change in what are members want. And I really think xenForo give more of that look and feel to the members. Thanks to everyone with your help
