Agreed ! The best part about xenforo is how fast it is.I will say this, though: I have converted a small, newer forum over to XF from SMF, and the overwhelming compliment we've received thus far: it's fast. Members really like it! And they are actually a lot more active now.
Indeed.I must say that with XenForo, you've "nailed it." We're all very pleased with the outcome after our conversion! I just think from a usability standpoint, the speed, and the improved "social" aspects of the system, it is a step or two ahead of all the others out there.
I remember Procomm Plus !(And I've been using forums since I was a Compuserve Sysop, using the text-based interface inside Procomm Plus!)
pbxinaflash.com would be a good project if you want to try Google Voice on a PBX at home.I'm so cheap, I can't even pay attention!
I'm looking at combining Sipdroid, Google Voice and a GV callback app on my Droid so I can get away from using my daytime minutes. I really wanted to use Gizmo5 (which was a similar service), but Google is shutting it down.
I think so. But the easiest way to determine that might be to visit the ipb/smf support forums and decide for yourself. There are a lot of factors involved.Basically, will the Xenforo speed advantage make much difference to users with slow internet connections as compared to SMF 2 and IPB 3.2 ?
Thanks for your honest input.
Both. Based on my experience, though it has been quite some time since I've looked at ipb (I do own a copy).I did and I'm getting good help there. However I have one main question that is relevant to this thread:
Are the speed avantages of XenForo something that makes a difference server-CPU wise or something that actually makes a significant impact on those with slow internet connections (like dial-up) as compared to say IPB ?
