I've been meaning to perform an upgrade to my current site, whose forums are powered by vBulletin 3.8.x. vBulletin 4.x has never been an option; I'm a seasoned coder and vBulletin 4.x makes me nervous when I compare it to vB 3.x. vB 5.x is completely out of the question (without even having to look at the code).
I've always been a big fan of the stuff Kier has created. Thus, I am very interested in xenforo and I have been since I first heard of it, but never needed to jump ship and now is when I'm considering it.
I currently use the vB session table and cookies quite extensively across an entire site, along with many functions built-in, originally coded by many who are with xenforo today.
I essentially include global.php and use many of the vB functions and userinfo variables:
and some global templates.
When I jump off of this sinking ship, it won't be difficult to code and integrate with xenforo, but is there much documentation on xenforo's code? Is there perhaps a chart available where I can compare vB's functions to XF's functions?
I really, really want to grab myself a copy of this forum suite and start integrating it.
edit: Just to add some clarification: Switching probably wouldn't be a problem when it comes to coding, but I don't really have days to spare wading through code. TY!
