It actually isn't that bad. Just takes some getting used to. It's incredibly easy to use.
I like how you can just highlight text and then reply to it as I did here. Anyway, this bug has been reported to the developer and he will release an update shortly.And when uploading files, the Thumbnail, Full Image button is completely unreadable unless you hover over it.
Can't say I agree at all. Tons of big boards (perhaps even a majority) are moving away from the trainwreck that is VB. With every board I switched to XF (from a variety of forum software, including VB), the users absolutely loved the changes, and as an admin, the things you can do with XF are truly astounding. Then when VB was unable to keep up with simple PHP releases and the entire software would break as as result, that was it for us. There is no way that anyone in his right mind would run EOL PHP on a public server, simply because VB doesn't support newer versions. That has changed now, of course, but was the final straw for me and VB, and it should have been for darn near everyone else out there, who actually knows even a tiny bit about server security.Bad move!
Every "struggling" forum i`ve seen switch to XenForo has lost traffic. Please rethink your strategy.
Maybe I was a bit harsh with my comment and I apologize. It`s down to personal experience with a couple of forum`s which I used to visit on regular occasions whom both did the switch to XenForo and both soon after died. A example would be http://forum.vidahost.com/index.php (forum username Spaceman).The main reason forums in general are struggling is not due to whatever software it uses, it's due to increased competition from social networks like facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat etc. I've heard from big forums who increased traffic when they moved to xenForo and so far that's also my experience with this move, but it's too early to tell. I'd be interested in what forums you talk about, so please send me a pm with some examples.
vB got a bad reputation from some early issues related to vB 5. I've also had frustrating experiences with vB so we've been discussing this for more than a year. We've already solved a lot of issues by moving to xenForo. I used to get hundreds of vBulletin database error emails every day. As a result the database had to be repaired almost daily with frequent mysql restarts and downtime. Another reason we moved is due to vBulletin morphing into a cms. xenForo is a more focused product.
Thanks man!Peo, Loving the new look my friend.
I haven't tried vB5, so I compare with vB4. At the admin side of things, xenForo is less cluttered and after a few hours of learning much easier. I like it so far.Do you like this a lot better than Vbulletin?
