Is there something better than XenPorta?

    It's a nice addon, but I feel it lacks a lot compared to vBadvanced and how simple mods are to implement on vBadvanced.

    I run a gaming community and I need something I can heavily modify, but making things simple.
    Right now the way you add Addons is not very simple, I'd like to add custom addons using html, but it appears you will have to make xml files, so I keep getting errors when I do that.

    I understand XenPorta is free, however I'd expect some type of support like vBadvanced, the support thread is okay, but a lot of those questions goes by unanswered.

    Also I checked the critique forum, but I haven't found any XenPorta pages that really caught my eyes, if you know any that are heavily customized please link them so It can help me imagining on what we can do with it.

    Brandon, I am looking for something that is done, not something that is still in development. To be frank, I am not even sure if the product will ever be finished.
    This plugin had potentials but it never took off because it was never released: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/beta-testers-for-cmf-news-portal-blogs-wiki-tags.31262/

    XenForo is a very nice forum software, but for a gaming community a nice front page system is a must (well at least for me).

    Of course for me to compare something like XenPorta to IP Content is unfair too...

    I don't think CMF will be long.

    Looking at CMF closely, it does look promising.
    BTW does anyone know what these folks are using? http://plaguefest.com/

    Probably a customized version of xenporta, easy enough 2 recent new modules maybe

    CMF is not a xenporta alternative.

    But simple portal will be one.

    This is the extent to which we got our XenPorta http://www.rpdom.com

    We are discontinuing the use of this addon later today so if you visit that link you may no longer see a portal.

    Thanks guys! At this stage I am not feeling XenPorta, I am looking at the CMF mod and their portal, theirs looks like something that is going somewhere...

    Wordpress. Some of the bridges out for WP work very well Xenforo. ;)

    Kind of curious what don't you like about XenPorta, I personally hate the default look of it however it's easily customizable.

    I'd go with XenPorta to start and then keep your eyes open for something that meets your longer term needs.
    XenPorta is relatively easy.

    Could you point me in the direction of a working one? because the one by Jamie didn't work for me. :)
