    I currently use vBulletin (www.47r-squad.com)
    I am growing a bit tired of vBulletin, their software and products....
    I love they have vbulletin.org.
    Does XenForo have anything similiar?
    Does XenForo have an official portal system like vBulletin CMS? (Non third party)

    I've been watching xenforo for awhile and I like what I see so far.
    Lots cleaner!

    Currently there is an add-on forum where developers can release add-ons. XenForo are currently building an add-on to better handle management of add-ons instead of using a forum.

    No, but Jaxel has developed an outstanding portal called XenPorta.

    There is no separate site for add-ons, everything is on xenforo.com.
    The Resource Manager will be released in the future.

    There is no official portal, only an add-on.

    A huge number of addons are available in the addon section here.

    There is no official portal/CMS, but you can use XenPorta or xPortal (in beta stage). But if I understand Kier right there will be no CMS thing coming up for the near future.

    I see.
    Is there an SEO option like vBSEO?

    Not that I am unaware of and only because XenForo is already SEO optimized.

    You simply don't need a vBSEO-like product with xF. It's all there already (well, most of it).

    SEO is good, would be nice to change the url structure but the 401's work very well if you are switching over.

    I bet your members will like the interactive nature of xenforo.
    I tried to look on your site to see if there would be any vB mods you have running the xF might not have.
    I think XenPorta for a home page is a very stable choice.
    The addon author uses it himself, which is an important safeguard.

    Your own arguments is the sale.

    Invest in xenforo, upgrade your community.
    It's THE solution at the moment for site owners that want to take their site serious now and in the future.

    How easy is the process to convert from vBulletin to XenForo?
    Can I import everything (except custom plugins I know)

    I was thinking about converting/importing, but I think I might just go ahead and restart from scratch.
    Those portals systems you guys linked look good also.
    I went ahead and got a demo, I do like the way SEO is integrated, there is room for improvement, but I think I can manage.
    The registration process is flawless, facebook connect is quick too!
    I am about to pull the trigger on XenForo.

    I finally upgraded a small site that up until yesterday was still running an early beta version. Did it quite well and after upgrading to the latest release, all original addons still worked. Just a really solid forum software in my opinion.

    In a word, easy. I recently tried a conversion of a 160,000 post vB 3.8.4 forum and it all worked great.

    Yes, and it ACTUALLY works.

    Unlike vBSEO, where you would have to put in all the work to get the best results.

    I have been doing this for a call of duty site and it pains me that whatever I know about vBSEO in the vb3 series... Is thrown out of the door with vB4, and kills my forum in just 3 months.
