I see that a new version of XenForo is coming out sometime in the next few months. Hence my dilemma. I'm using vBulletin 3.8.2, and summer is my forum's slow season. For that reason, it'd be easier for me to convert to XenForo now. But I don't want to have a big job on my hands, once the new version comes out. Then again, it's not an emergency situation. Any advice on what to do? How hard would it be to upgrade?
Installing xenforo is easy, converting the data is very doable, and upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1 is as easy as installing it.
Run the board as vanilla as possible during the 1.0 period, get to know it, tweak the forum structure, usergroups and their permissions to your liking - and when 1.1 is out, the upgrade will be smooth, and you can customize it to your delight
