I've bought the software, set up a test environment and have been playing with all the new bells and whistles. I'm excited to make the move ASAP.
Keeping in mind all the things I learned over the years with VB, I'm hoping to make this as easy for myself as possible. I would prefer to keep customization to a minimum, at least to start, so I want to use the standard style with my colors and only add on the things we really need.
I have two custom mods that we use. One is a countdown timer in signatures that uses our graphics with the timer displayed on top. I also have an extra tab on the user profile that displays a list of the threads they started in a specific forum (Trip Reports). Any suggestions on who would be best to contact to do this work for us?
Also, I've been looking over the list of add-ons we are currently using with Vbulletin and I'm not sure which I need to find replacements for and which are already addressed by Xenforo. Here is our list:

I'd love to hear any feedback you have about making the move and what I can ignore from this list of addons. Thanks!
