Within the next month or two, we have plans to migrate our large vBulletin 4.2.3 forum to Xenforo. Before we make the plunge, I have a few questions that I was hoping to answer.
1) We're currently using all of the included vBulletin 4 Suite features aside from the Articles feature (Blogs, Groups and Albums specifically). I know that the Xenforo Resource Manager includes Articles, Albums and Downloads, but is there an addon or customization available that will enable/allow Blogs and Groups?
2) We currently use YAAS (Yet Another Awards System). Is there a comparable mod or port for Xenforo and if the former, are you aware of an importer for the awards that we currently carry?
3) Is there a shell based importer for Xenforo? For example, you can run a script such as upgrade.php on vBulletin when upgrading versions, but I think that a shell script for importing the forum database/converting might be easier on us since I believe the page has to be kept open for the entire duration of the conversion (this is possible but we'd rather try to avoid it if possible)
That's all we have for now. Thank you very much to the developers for making such a fine software. We look forward to being a Xenforo customer in the near future!
