So I guess some of you already are having idea what you will use xenForo for will it be that family guy forum you always wanted or maybe a plugin community for xenForo?

There's a project I've been holding onto for a year or so now. I was going to pull the trigger and use vBulletin, but after seeing the downward spiral early on I decided to hold off and have been waiting for a forum software to come along. IPB just wasn't going to cut it for me, and I was near-bent on making my own custom solution.

It is possible that XF could replace one of my 3.8.x sites that uses a few mods:
  • PhotoPost Pro - over 5k pics
  • vbCMPS - some basic side modules and a few custom pages; could accomplish some of it through some creative template code but it's easier to choose what is displayed via cmps
  • re-write eBay Links - helps pay the bills
A new project could be a possibility as well.

Version 4 to 3 downgrade without losing any data is available, going from vb3 to XF1 will not be a problem.
you gave me an interesting idea Floris ... do you think which i can do it easily? keep in mind that i've the SEO installed ... and i need to be sure which i don't lose anything ...

Once it's ready and has the features I need then I'll be upgrading my motorsport site from phpbb: http://www.cliptheapex.com/forum/index.php

The problem is at the moment live chat is heavily used during races so if I do switch to XF then I will need an alternative chat solution, possibly IRC?
An IRC Chat plugin shouldn't be too hard to make, I've made simple ones for vBulletin - so we'll see what I come up with.

I'll be grabbing a copy to use as a development site, and maybe if it allows a test site and a live site, maybe convert one of my forums over to it to see how it goes.

Thanks Mikey, that would be great.
