    so everytime i go to a forum and see another platform used i sigh, i feel like i am just too attached to xf to accept other platforms for now

    so i tried to search and couldnt get any solid information, how many forums using xenforo now compared to the other big two?

    We don't release sales information or other statistics but there is, as I understand, some market share information available from a couple of sources but the data isn't certain to be accurate.

    Most people refer to this page:


    There's a chart which compares the main commercial forum software vendors.

    That'll be the closest you get, really.

    holy crap XF is that popular? i thought IPB and XF will be very close and sadly VB is way ahead

    this makes me happy

    if XF is that popular why people say its a niche market for coders to spend time on

    It's no more of a niche market than vB or any other forum software.

    I'll add that no matter what the forum software is, the add-ons themselves are niche add-ons. For example, not everyone has a need for application forms or say a media gallery.
