Currently I own a vB4 license that I was using for a gaming community. I have recently taken the site down and I am looking to start a new site from scratch. I'd rather not build the new site with vB4 due to it's outdated look; even with custom themes I find vB4 to be very flat looking and the design looks like something out of the 90's. I was considering purchasing a vB5 license and sticking with VB because I am familiar with it and I find it relatively easy to use and I like the fact that there is built in CMS.
Before I make a final decision though, I figured I would take a look to see what other options are out there such as Xenforo. I have played around a bit with the demo and I have a few questions that I was hoping I could get some answers to as follows:
- Does Xenforo have a PayPal donation mod? I was using Dragonbytes mod for VB4 and it worked wonderful.
- Will Xenforo work on mobile devices? If so, does it displays a full site or is there a mobile version?
- Is there a CMS for Xenforo? If not, I was considering using Joomla and perhaps looking for a way to integrate Xenforo into Joomla, can this be done?
- How good is Xenforo and stopping spam registration accounts? Are there any effective mods that can help with this?
- How secure is Xenforo compared to other popular forum software?
- Finally, how good is the support with Xenforo?
Once again thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.
