But my main reason for this post is that I like the way everything works, and like the way xenforo is laid out and the future it has. But I am a little disappointed by the amount of restrictions on the board for potential new customers. I understand that certain areas of the boards are for members only, but even a unlicensed user on vb.org can at least see the screenshots provided for add-ons. For me personally, before making a decision on switching to xenforo, I just wanted to see what kind of add-ons there was available and what kind of feedback users have left on whether the add-on were supported anymore. With almost 85% of the add-on descriptions, feedback and screenshots restricted, it almost swayed me not to do the switch to xenforo.
The demo is fine, for basic functionality. But let's be serious, almost everyone is going to use a add-on for their boards. I will be honest, on a local server in my house, I installed a nulled version just so I could test some add-ons and see what they did. Could have avoided most of this, if not all if the restrictions on just viewing add-ons screenshots and reviews were a little less restrictive.
I like the path xenforo is taking and hope to be a long time licensor for the future of my boards.
