Moving to xenforo

Discussion in 'XenForo Pre-Sales Questions' started by Joshua Ƒerdinand, Dec 1, 2010.

  1. Hello, I would like to plan a complete move of our site www.Carpediem.im from vBulletin to xenforo, however I must know if it is capable of fully rebuilding the additional areas vBulletin has/can do before I can switch the software.
    This included
    Have a Media area for videos music ect.
    Have a Gallery for photos.
    Import the entire database including all posts & images.
    A contacts importer to invite contacts by email.
    SEO optimized.

    After I confirm these are available we will move over.

    There is no photo gallery yet.
     
  3. But it's able to do the rest, I hope the gallery comes along soon.

    You can embed videos and media from Facebook, Vimeo, and You Tube, at present.
    I'm not sure what you mean by a "contacts importer".
    XenForo is SEO ready right out of the box, yes.

    We most likely won't see a gallery until the stable version (or "gold") is released.

    There are no separate areas for those things in xenForo. But you can create dedicated forums for media and images and use post attachments to upload files.

    > Import the entire database including all posts & images.

    Yes, those are imported. See this post for a list of import modules.

    > A contacts importer to invite contacts by email.

    The importer preserves users' friends lists from vB. It imports them as 'followed' users like you see on the left side of Peggy's profile.

    > SEO optimized.

    Included.

    My media library has already been converted to XenForo:
    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/8wayrun-com-xenmedio-media.8092/

    However, I noticed you are using my VB4 Media Library, and you have removed the copyright brand... yet I have no record of you ever purchasing that option... Don't expect any support from me here on XenForo if you plan on cheating me again.

    xf doesn't have user's album implemented yet, so you would loss all user's album if you convert your forum now .

    You can keep the data, and if there's a plugin or addon, or future component to xenforo, you can perhaps see if an importer could still get that data.
