What do you think about that?
I think you should upgrade your Xenforo to vBulletin 5.
Nothing. This is a wait and see game... I hope not for long.
I believe everyone finds it frustrating but unfortunately we can't do anything about it.
No, that's not gonna happen.
I went from vb to ipb, from ipb to xf. Now i would just like to have a mobile skin and some advanced moderation features, nothing exciting.
As much as I want Xenforo to resume it's rightful ascent ... at this stage ... it's not worth *****ing about.
I'm glad my forum's next version doesn't look like this.
xenforo is the forum system out there that applies complete MVC practices. I doubt there will be another one within one, two years.
I thought about a mobile skin and I dislike the idea. I have a hard time styling the www frontend. Doing the same for a mobile skin is not what I want. Plus most phones tend to get bigger and bigger. Its not that people browse on their blackberry or on a symbian. What I prefer would be an optimized mobile css. One style that can be both mobile and regular.
For moderation features - I am completely with you
Does not bother me, any upgrades would not change a lot, there would maybe have been a mobile theme and bug fixes and little extras.
Nothing I cant wait for or do with add-ons.
So that wasn't a joke and you are seriously thinking to switch?
That version of vb5 looks promising, but it looks like to have been created by microsoft.
I really really hate it.
While i still like xenforo.
The only 2 things i cannot keep missing is a mobile style and some powerful moderation features.
Kier has a mobile skin almost ready, it only has to publish it. I can assure you that creating a mobile version of a website starting from the desktop one is really kid's job, especially if as in this case we start from an almost ready job.
I've created my set of websites around a forum using some MVC practices, and i really enjoyed it (example: techforum.it is the forum, while technews.it is for the news)
Please elaborate on "Powerful moderation features".
I think to be sticked @1.0, and my mods dosen't even know how to ban someone without using the Spam Cleaner features, that in that version at least is bugged.
vbulletin 5 beta = pre-alpha
I find climate change frustrating.
I find double bogeys frustrating.
I find american elections frustrating.
I find vB5 demos frustrating.
I find my 2001 car frustrating.
I find Iran frustrating.
This forum hasn't changed a bit in 2 years.
Yes it has.
What do you have as an answer? This topic is silly: the question has been asked hundreds of times and hundreds of users have already answered many times, do not bother to revive again a unproductive debate.
Of course we would all like to know that a new version will be released soon. But nobody knows if this is the case and the answer will not come by creating an umpteenth ready-to-close topic.
If you are not satisfied with XenForo, you are free to migrate to a competitor, no one will stop you.
[off.the.record]cedivad: I want some cool Xenforo updates too .... but Xenforo is fine for now... I'm saving my *****ing for the new year. [/off.the.record]
xf 1.1.3 was released 4 months ago....
