    Hi all

    What are your opinions on xenforo software?

    To convert from vbulletin to xenforo would take a little bit of work but that part i dont mind.

    My way of thinking is vbulletin 4 is becoming old and support from a lot of moderations are now zero, so as and if new versions are released the addons become buggy.

    I've had this license for a good few years when vb4 was first released.

    I have two options one stay with this software and fingers crossed or migrate to xenforo why the forum is young, making it easier and a quicker migration.

    Vb5 is an option but im not sure i like it plus its 250 uk pound unlike xenforo £120.

    Fyi xenforo is now becoming the new king of forum software because its created by the original and famous vb3 team that departed from vbulletin when it was sold on.

    Just my thoughts but i would like to hear yours

    Regards

    Sounds like its the type of question to ask on a computer type forum.

    My knowledge of Computer Programming etc I could write in a very fine sharp pin point.

    Then there is the very old saying "If it is not broke don t Fix It"
