What advantage do you mean?
XF 2 is available only in developer mode, with each new release basically starting with a fresh install.

Beta versions SHOULD NEVER be run in a production environment.

Thankfully, Artashes knows better than that :)

Correct, however, you would have a knowledge of the internals of xf2 and maybe even an outline/game plan of importing beforehand. Hell, were it me, that might be something on my mind, anyways :)

Absolutely, and never did I say that.
You have no idea how many times I've fully reset WHMCS testing environments when getting things perfect... Using a beta in a testing environment is probably the best approach for something like this, especially if you're going to move from something else entirely

To be honest, I am not going to be the one in charge of migration or custom modifications. I've always relied on absolutely able people, highly knowledgeable in vBulletin and/or XenForo, while I focused more on other components of website development and marketing. These resources know XF inside-out (way, way better than I will ever know), which is why I am attracting them to the job and maintenance. :thumbup:

I recommend Xenforo.
It's powerful, secured, latest technology used and using it is really fun.

Artashes 05-15-2017 02:09 PM

Today we begin building our next version of HostingDiscussion. The process will likely be long (but not too long) and tedious, but we have an experienced developer on board who works with both vBulletin and XenForo platforms to help us with the transition.

The process of migration isn't the most straightforward due to a number of add-ons and custom tools that were developed specifically for our forum. Our objective is to make this process as smooth as possible. And even if there was a change of how our backend works, we'd like to make sure that such changes are minimized as far as actual usability is concerned.

Stay tuned.

So you decided to move to Xenforo?
I felt you're convinced of IPS :)

Anyway, i felt comfortable in your forum and i'll be a long term user and i hope to see your forum updated soon.

Good luck.

I am glad you feel comfortable around here. We try to keep it chill for everyone.

Yes, XenForo is finally the choice and we have a test-server where things are being tested on. We have a few custom solutions that we coded specifically for our needs here, so some will require re-coding. I really can't wait for XF 2.0 though.

Any update on announcement in 1st post? A responsive theme would be welcome, forum is difficult to read and navigate on mobile...

Yes, if you scan through this thread, there were at least a couple of updates along the way. Look out for my posts.
