I´m in trouble and it´s by reason of XF


Well-known member
As I told two weeks before, I have converted my Forum from SMF to XF.
Everything went good. Normaly there are 10-15 users online and the Shared Hoster works fine and costs not much money.:)
But after the Converting, my traffic rised up. At the Moment there are normaly 30-40 Users online at the same time with peaks over 50. :eek:
Also the upcoming of new Members rides to a Level, thats not normal. ;)
Since XF I have got more new members than the last year.
So I´m in troube. :D - but I like this kind of trouble, give me more.

Thanks to XF - another succsessful story.

I'm in a similar position.

When we migrated from phpBB on 29 January, we had 33,000 posts after 32 months, an average of 1,030 posts per month.

In the first 4 months since converting we had 52,250 posts, an overall average 1,450 posts per month, and an average of 4,800 per month for February to May.

So posting rate has increased almost five fold on average
Some of that is down to new members, but then those new members are due to the switch to XenForo.

Looks like I'm going to need that VPS sooner than I thought...

I like trouble. :)

I can tell you that SE spiders - particularly google and yahoo - found their way to my XF forum much, much quicker than they ever did my vB forums. And they return more often, and stay around longer. They're my friends. :p
