Out of curiosity, why do you buy one software, but want it to look and function like the other? Wouldn't it be easier to just purchase the original software?

Maybe some people might want to keep old functionality that user's liked from the previous software, or that might overall be necessary for the functioning of their site.

I can't see anything that vB has that XF doesn't (in terms of user functionality).

Some, if not all of the stuff in the first post may be available in vBulletin, but not XenForo at the moment. Specifically why there are add ons to help bring that functionality.

Simply because Xenforo is awesome and doesn't require much updates... and no. Xenforo is an easier experience and learning curve than vBulletin.

vB has plenty of stuff we need in Xenforo. Not just in terms of User Functionality but Admin-wise as well.

Advanced Navigation Menu Manager (Most Requested Feature on Xenforo.com) Exists in vBulletin 4 as Core

״Advanced Navigation Menu Manager״
- Can be done manually. And this is not a user functionality, this is why I stated User and not Admin.

All the others are exist as add-ons, or not useful among the majority of forums. So I'm not sure why you are saying they are missing. For me, exists as add-on = good as core (if not even better, since it's more flexible and features can be added faster).

I stated that I posted both user and admin functionalities needed from vB4. Did that more for everyone else than for you.
