I am an Invision lover who only found out about Xen a few months ago. I started running forums about 10 years ago with PHPbb, invision free etc
I have just gotten back onto the forum ball in the last 4 months. I need to know if I should coninute making my forums with Invision or if all my future forums should be with Xenforo.
Here's the deal, I run a huge social network of several million people on Facebook. I want freedom from dependency on Facebook so I am creating my own forum for all the niches my fans love. I have several large fanpages so I need several forums to satisfy them. I love really like Invision as a techy myself but my fans find it backwards. I am thinking they will like Xenforo more but I am afraid to just to such a new technology.
I would love your advice.
The forum needs to be easy to use, easy to sign up for (even if the visitor is 60+) and easy to return to (visitors should be promoted to return).
