Is there a CMS in the works?

    I'm starting a website/online community that will have a lot of tutorials and articles on it from many different contributors. So the software I use needs to have some sort of CMS and forum. I really like the look of xenForo, but from what I've read there is no CMS yet.

    What would you advise?

    Asked and answered many times. :) There is no CMS in the works, however, there is a very nice portal add-on.
    You'll find it in the add-ons section.

    No announcement of an official CMS, but Jaxel has an alternative solutions in the Add-On Releases board.

    You are not really requesting a CMS ... you are requesting an Articles Addon.
    vBulletin's horrifically terrible CMS is really just a mediocre Articles Addon with poor implementation. Add a dose of bugs and sluggish performance ... and that's about it.

    A real CMS is much more than just an Articles Addon.

    A real CMS would be Joomla. There is a bridge for it.
    A real CMS would be Wordpress. There is a bridge for it.
    - good themes for Wordpress with demos.
    - and a theme that "assumes" or follows the xenforo theme you are using.

    (1) One idea would be to run a Wordpress site .... maybe with a good blog and good articles .... you would get the SEO goodness from that ..... and then just run Xenforo as the Forum Tab on your Wordpress site.
    I'm sure Wordpress has plenty of good Articles Plugins.

    (2) The [LN] Blog is multiuser ... and might work for your needs with some tweaks ?

    (3) I don't think there is a good articles addon ... yet.
    But one is probably coming relatively soon.

    Hope that helps !

    Could you elaborate? I tied the vBulletin demo and thought it seemed pretty nice. But then again, I don't really know much about forum software..

    Most of the VB user feedback is hidden in a forum available to licensed users only. You may want to look at the bug tracker or check third party sites like TheAdminZone.com for some of the issues people were experiencing with the CMS.
