Considering that xenforo is built by ex vbulletin employees, I thought I would investigate further and so far I am impressed.
I have a few burning questions though, because as mentioned I am a long time vb user and I want to make sure the same functions I currently use in the form of add ons it viable in xenforo.
1. Is there a cms function for the software, or an add on that is similar to vbadvanced? Also is there an easy to use module system that displays across all pages like the vbadvanced integration system?
2. Am I able to setup an rss feed to post threads?
3. Is there an add on/bbcode or function that I can use to auto embed youtube links and make them an embedded video?
4. Is there any blog functionality?
5. As a long time tweaker of the vb template system since 3.5, how well will I adapt to xenforo?
6. How often is the software updated and do add ons manage to keep up in a timely manner? For example it took ages for vb 4 to get the same amount of add ones as vb 3 and even then there are many great add ons missing from the list.
7. Overall, is there a lot of add ons released for xenforo that would be considered heavy modifications or are most of the add ons cosmetic or limited in function? Also, how easy are they to install generally?
Thanks for you time.
