migrates ......... I think there is enough knowledge about for how to migrates data .......
Tools designed for the job, the more focused something (and the team that builds it) is, typically the better it is............ big cons and pros are of an inhouse xenForo produced CMS compared to a bridge to Wordpress?.............
They (Kier and Mike) can focus on forum and maybe hire someone who works best with CMS and blog.Tools designed for the job, the more focused something (and the team that builds it) is, typically the better it is.
Something that tries to be all things for everyone (i.e. Drupal) is just a huge bag of compromises.
Though if you are doing one thing, then another and can switch between them (and keep your authentication and authorisation) it's ideal.
It wouldn't be an official product; I'm going to talk to a friend of mine to do it (He use to develop plugins for Wordpress, and still does IIRC).
Yes, but how can we be sure that the plugin will be supported? Will your friend maintain the product? Whats going to happen when XF2 released? Endless questions...It wouldn't be an official product; I'm going to talk to a friend of mine to do it (He use to develop plugins for Wordpress, and still does IIRC).
hehe, kind of agree if you run it just like that. In which case wordpress is pretty shoddy too.Integrating with Drupal would be a challenge as it is designed to destroy servers with SQL .........
Is it possible that the wordpress license agreement might be a problem?I don't know very much about wordpress, but my impression is they are dabbling with forum add-ons (correct me if I am mistaken). I also have the impression the number of wordpress blogs is huge.
That could be a much bigger market.
- If so, then possibly the suggestion of a XF to wordpress bridge is the wrong way round?
- Instead, have a seamless bridge from wordpress to XF, which might be a suitable clean fast forum addon for blog owners?
I don't think offering bridge functionality is the same as implementing the product itself into a commercial product. I'm not sure though, and I have minimal licensing knowledge.
