Hi all. I have never set up or looked to purchase a forum before, but as my company grows I am looking to build a community of users to discuss all thing related to my companies service offerings. I am wondering if there is a trial version of xenForo that I could test and play with a bit before I buy a license. Can anyone help a newbie get a better understanding of this software and what set up and management would be like.

Welcome to XenForo, Dale. Unfortunately no trial but there are videos in the Have You Seen section here They are a BIG help.
I believe you will enjoy the forum. And the forum itself is what the members will see.

Welcome :) There is no trial version, but if you're not figuring on doing a lot of customization the management end is pretty easy to figure out. And you will get help on here for anything you don't understand - the Xenforo help forums are fantastic.

There should be a live ACP demo available by the time the stable version is released I believe.
