    Hi everyone i've heard lots of great things about xenforo and I was wondering what the benefits of this over other forum providers. As sometime next year id like to make a brave frontier forum. Also I'm still a little confused what the ressource manager is.

    Better security. Over the course of its existence since 2010, XenForo has only had two security issues, both of which were promptly fixed:
    https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-3-5-released-security-fix.80630/
    https://xenforo.com/community/threa...s-1-2-7-1-3-6-and-1-4-1-includes-patch.83256/

    It lists all add-ons, template modifications, etc.

    Only one. The XML one is a security bug from 2004; one they were not aware of. SWFUpload is a third-party library and hence is not a XenForo problem.

    From the purchase details page - https://xenforo.com/purchase/xenforo-details:

    It is an optional extra that can be added to your license if you wish.

    FAQ for the resource manager which you might be interested in: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/resource-manager-faq.46527/

    You'll get biased answers here. Most people here will say XenForo, because that's probably our board of choice if we're replying to you. If you go to a competitor's forums you'll hear good about them, because the members replying to you there say that's their board of choice.

    Try a demo, read the features, do some comparisons and choose the best for you. All I can say is, some competitors have good features some places, but I feel XenForo beats them all. The updates, the UI, the community, the support. It's absolutely mind blowing.

    I think XenForo is a new age of forum softwares.

    As someone already mentioned it's for add-ons etc but can be utilized for anything that benefits your community.

    We purchased it because we were converting our sites over from vBulletin and using it for Tutorials. Well worth the little extra you pay for the added benefit of outstanding organization of material.

    It alone has made the transition for my members so much easier.
