    I currently run vb 4.1.1 , To make a long story short I would prefer to use Xenforo but have a few concerns and questions.

    How would URL redirection from vB to Xenforo be accomplished
    What can not be imported from vB 4.1.1
    Will the upgrade policy work from version to version or will users be hit with purchasing version 2

    Thanks for the helpful links, Looks like everything should be covered regarding URL's.
    The only other thing to check of the list would be BB Code, Can any one confirm that I can add the following to BB Code

    Example of new BB Code

    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    xxxxxxxxxxxx = "xxx-{param}";
    xxxxxxxxxxxx = "{option}";
    xxxxxxxxxxxx = xxx;
    xxxxxxxxxxxx = xxx;
    //-->
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript"
    src="http:// justanother domain name.com/xxxxxxxx/xxxxxxx.js">
    </script>

    User example
    [New BB="Input 1"]Input 2[/New BB]


    That would be my last concern

    I thank you greatly for your time to help me navigate the forums at this early stage.

    I must say that I am impressed with initial user view, But most importantly the XenForo forum has everything nicely laid out in one single easy to use place that seems friendly and un complicated. That in its self is no easy task and is the reason I will hopefully be making a purchase very shortly.

    I know it is only early stages but I did not see a privacy policy and terms and rules really needs to be expanded for every aspect, Any way I can discuss these things after a purchase.

    Thanks again

    You have the option in the ACP to link to your own Privacy Policy and Terms and Rules.

    Or you can edit the default terms and rules phrase to suit.

    If you want to play with an admin demo before you buy, xenfans offers free admin demos :)

    Thanks Mikey

    I don't think I will need to view the Admin, Getting my hands on the vB conversion mod before purchase would have been handy.

    I just quickly checked out your remix site and noticed that your bottom scroll bar is always displayed using Firefox

    OK so I have done the switch to XenForo and it was surprisingly easy, Still need to do some fine tuning

    The only issue I seem to have regarding the transfer is signatures that include the non valid BB Codes from vb like [sigpic][/sigpic]

    Any way to easily strip the invalid entries from the signatures
