Hello,
I will be migrating from vB 4.2.3 soon to Xenforo of a forum of 1M+ posts.

I have a couple questons
1) The members of my forum love using the page that has all the latest posts on the forum, regardless of whether they have been read or not. We use vBA CMPS for this, since vBulletin doesn't have something equivalent. Does Xenforo have something that shows all the latest posts on a page?
2) Regarding migrating from vBulletin, how does Xenforo deal with URL changes? In the forum we have tons of links, when we migrate the forum, will all the links redirect properly or what's the solution?
3) Regarding mobile, vB is terrible with mobile. We have 2 different mobile themes, and have Tapatalk setup, but none work great. How does Xenforo perform on mobile?

Thanks.

There is this URL: https://xenforo.com/community/find-new/posts
If you want to incorporate that into a page with other content though, it would require an add-on.

There are redirection scripts available: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/redirection-scripts.2/

XF is responsive out of the box. Resize your browser to see it in action.

Also, I don't see the redirection script for vB 4.2 URLs when we migrate to Xenforo. Can you show us which script you're referring to?

I notice on my test Xenforo site that this URL doesn't work
https://www.domain.com/forum/find-new/posts?recent=1

When I click on New Posts on the forum home, it links to:
https://www.domain.com/forum/index.php?find-new/posts

I also tried this and it just redirects to the forum home:
https://www.domain.com/forum/index.php?find-new/posts?recent=1

What is the URL to return all the latest posts, read or unread, on one page? Thanks.

The URL I posted is the correct one.
You can see how the two new posts links should work on this site.

Do you have any redirects in .htaccess which are conflicting?

That worked, thanks. I'll enable friendly URLs in the future.

I don't think so, it was probably what was described above. I do have a wordpress install at domain.com and the forum is at /forum so I was thinking there may be a conflict, but gladly it doesn't seem that way. Thanks.
