Hey guys, to think I was going to purchase BurningBoard and then I found this software. Awesome, anyways just a few thoughts. I know this is a young project but it looks like it has a lot of promise and I'm going to be looking into purchasing it. Edit (the software not the project lol)

Just a few questions if that's okay? Are there plenty of themes to choose from that are free and also plugins particularly a Wordpress bridge and Video support for Youtube and other video sites? There two essential plugins for me. And how about if I wanted to purchase a theme is there any sites you could refer to or do you have a design store on-site that I've not discovered yet?

Thanks for answering these,

Clark.

Styles.
A popular one is Flexile.

There two essential plugins for me.
(1) a Wordpress bridge
- 2 options.
(A) Free: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/wordpress-3-bridge.5398/
(B) $39. http://xenscripts.com/xenforo-to-wordpress-bridge/
Note: both support the awesome "Style your Wordpress like Xenforo Theme - XenDynamic"

(2) Video support for Youtube and other video sites?
included by default. :)
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_sfnQDr1-o
just put the URL anywhere and xenforo will embed it.

You can add many different videos.

And how about if I wanted to purchase a theme is there any sites you could refer to or do you have a design store on-site that I've not discovered yet?
lots of cool themes around.

I have a free theme in mind and the commercial Wordpress bridge looks to fit my needs. And Youtube and Social media support in Xenforo support as standard? Wow, I'm sold. Will be buying Xenforo in a few weeks. Will have to wait a little bit to get the Wordpress bridge but on the plus side this has everything I want to make the community I want.

Thank you very much for your help Digital Doctor.

All the best,

Clark.
