I have a smallish video game community (around 2500 page views/day) that I would like to move to XenForo, as I really like the modernized style of the forums compared to vB. Currently, we are running on phpBB, and being overrun with 20 or so new spammers per day regardless of the captcha method used. Very frustrating. The other reason I would like to move away from phpBB is the lack of SEO optimizations. That said, here are a few questions: - I have programmed in the ShoutBox chat box into the top of the page of our current phpBB forums, as well as a custom box to show current game server information. Would this be possible to do with XenForo in a smooth manner? Is it easy to create top or side boxes with additional information? What about inclusion of PHP so that the data can be "live"? - What sort of anti-spam protection does XenForo have? Does it work better than phpBB? Why? - I've noticed that some buttons on the forums are slow to respond, such as the "Insert/edit image" button. It only displays a simple dialog box, so I am wondering why it takes almost a full second to respond. Is this just the nature of the forums, since it has fancier visuals than other sites? - And of course, the infamous question... when is a phpBB converter going to be coming? I can't afford to purchase vB AND XenForo, so it is definitely the major reason I am holding off on purchasing.
