    Hi all, seriously considering a move from VB to Xenforo but my site relies heavily on images and image sharing.

    I was wondering if there is a built in gallery / photo sharing solution in Xenforo or is it capable with of this with a modification?

    At the moment users have the options of attachments or photo uploading and can create there own gallery.

    Any information appreciated on how this can be achieved.

    Robbo is creating a premium gallery solution. Not sure when it will be finished however.
  3. This is an essential element of the forum...

    What was the last/latest update on Robbo's gallery?

    I'd be happy to throw in some money this direction.

    I am hoping this reenergizes Robbo to make it a complete and robust Gallery.

  7. It should be intrigrated into the forum system.... vbulletin 5 has it and so does earlier versions, this is essential today, people are picture whores.

    Actually I'd prefer if they created a quality alternative for Photopost, independent from the forum, but integrated with it. A Photo Gallery is too important to make it just a 'feature' of the forum.

    Ok so to clarify -

    1) There is no stock out of the box photo gallery for Xenforo?

    So I am assuming when you import VB4 > Xenforo all your attachments / photos are lost?

    Bit of a bummer if this is the case as I am therefore comitted to VB5 which I would rather not be at this point time :)!

    Wait you're confusing things now. What's a gallery have to do with attachments?

    Attachments are converted just fine as far as i know.

    Yep apologies sorry you have two things in VB which I don't understand really......

    1) Photos and gallery

    2) Attachments

    So the questions are -

    1) Does Xenforo support Photos & Galleries and if so what happens to them during import

    2) Does Xenforo support attachments and if so what happens to them during import and how does a user manage / access attachmetns?

    I guess for me from what I can see Xenforo supports file uploads (attachments) which can work fine as a gallery but can users access these files after they have upload from there user control panel?

    1) The default VB gallery is converted into user posts into a new forum.

    2) Attachments stay attached to the same posts as they were on VB.

    Users would need to go to the relevent post to manage them :)

    I want to get it done as much as everyone else. And now that the XenForo market might start to grow again I might be able to start spending a lot more time on it if my sales increase. Currently I am doing client work to pay the bills, once I have done enough I will have enough money to spend a lot of time on XenForo stuff once again. I also have been looking for help with it and now the lawsuit is over might have another interested developer.

    Okay so looks like I will more than most likely be jumping ship from VB I had always planned to go VB5 but I am really loving Xenforo!!!

    Couple of final questions from me -

    1) Is there any way to import Vbulletin Albums into XFR Albums that anyone is aware of?

    2) Is it possible to have HTML code in signatures as I have alot of users with HTML signatures?

    Thanks for all the replies it is appreciated!!!

    Hmmm interesting the more I dig on this the more it concerns me -

    1) XFR Albums whilst it works currently there is no real way to import from vbulletin to Xenforo

    2) XFR Albums hasn't been updated in a year and it would appear development is stalling

    3) We have Simply Gallery and the developer her stating its still being worked which is great but sounds like its a fair way off to full release?

    It looks like the only viable option is Xenmedio but it seems a little full one for my needs to just upload photos.

    Disappointing Xenforo doesn't have a gallery and this may hold me up :(!!
