2. Robbo is working on a gallery that may be of interest which your able to purchase. Jeremy is also working on a gallery and currently developing it.
3. When you purchase xenforo you get 1 year to download updates and recieve ticket support when that expires you'll have to renew (which is $40) to extend that for another year.
4. The support here is superb, questions are responded to quickly and the community will respond to any issues if they arise. Plus Jake and Brogan will rarely have a question go without a response. Judge this yourself by visiting the support areas.

So I think I am going to make the change to Xenforo and purchase it... but before I do.

1) Should I buy the advanced search add on? Who has it? and does it make a difference?
2) Can i buy it later if I want it? Or it has to be a one time purchase type thing...
3) When XF gets updated, do I have to update my themes, skins, etc also?
4) Anybody using this forum with wordpress? Would love to see how it looks
5) How many users/members can this forum software hold? Whats the biggest site that uses it
6) Any other info will be great :)
- If you do not suggest me to buy it, please send me a PM rather than posting on this thread. We do not want problems.

Thanks guys,

Joe...

I assume others are going to be answering your questions (I'm leaving for a meeting so I don't have time), but when you make the change you will be absolutely blown away at the ease of updating this software. Being used to vB you have no idea how easy updating and changing things can be. Welcome!

1. The search add-on is a official add-on built by the xenforo developers. The choice is yours as you weigh up the options whether you need it but there's plenty of discussion to see if you do require and would benefit from using it.
2. It's a separate add-on and your able to purchase it at your own discretion whenever you want.
3. it all depends if you use EXTRA.CSS and Style Properties you won't have to make any updates to the templates. The updating is painless and I myself update 4 very customised styles in less than 10 minutes. It's truly an exceptional system.
4. There's quite a few people using it i'm sure but i'll leave someone to respond to that with more experience with wordpress.
5. Check Digitalpoint.com out. :) And also the Big forum List thread.

6. Purchase now, you won't regret it.

1.) Advanced Search Add-on is designed for big boards
2.) You can add the search or RM(when it gets released) down the road when you need them
3.) XF updates for styles are a breeze if they're done right(if you continue with our conversation you'll definitely have an easy upgrade process with my style :) )
4.) I'd have to find some examples and get back to you...
5.) Check this list out, lots of big boards on it: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/the-big-forum-list.26352/

**Cmon Shelley leave the ninja posts to the mods.**

Is there a membership plugin for this forum?
Allow users to reach certain forums depending on membership they choose.
Also show under their avatar a title depending on which membership they choose.

1. I don't seem to find a good supported solution for an already funtioning Wordpress instalation with lots of user in it. So as I understand users are handle in the wordpress Xenscript Bridge by Xenforo are not synced to Wordpress. Or am I missing something here?

The thing is I have a wordpress e-commerce site using Woocommerce with a variaty of plugins on it. Can I integrate that website with Xenforo on a Single Sign On?

Awesome.. Thanks shelley.

One last question..
Is there a gallery like Vb for pictures and albums?
There isn't I'm afraid. However, Robbo is currently developing and release a gallery which from feedback is still lacking features so at this time can't really call it a fully fledged gallery and development on that is touch and go. Jeremy is working on developing a gallery which I'm sure will come to some kind of fruitation at some point.

You will need to decide whether it's worth the risk. http://xenforo.com/community/threads/media-gallery-updates.40414/
