as I'm completely sick of the general update & news policy of vBulletin(4) I'm currently planning a migration from vB4.1.2 with about 250.000 posts and 9.000 members to xenForo.
While I'm sure the forum itself will be a huge step forward I have two concerns:
- I need a full-fledged news portal/cms including an article system, not just newsposts, which preferably is deeply integrated into the forum
- The portal/cms should have an api or atleast a pretty straightforward database scheme as I'm planning to migrate my >5.000 news and articles from an old old e107 database
I did a quick look on the XenPorta which seems already to do most of the stuff that my site needs but I can't really find some kind of CMS part. Also
The other option would probably be a wordpress bridge (although I'd prefer typo3) but according to the latest comments there are some serious problems.
Also if I'm correct there is no official vB4 importer just some 3rd party scripts, right? Did anyone have had any problems with those or are those safe to use? Preferably free or low at cost, don't want to spend like the same amount I'd pay for xenForo in an importer to make the system usable for me.
Sorry if there's already some other thread with similar specifications, just wanted a clean thread for my purpose.
