Forum Software Switch

+ posted by Pat in Site News on Dec 22, 2015 16:19

Hey folks!

As you all know, we have been using vBulletin as our forum software for several years but unfortunately it's getting outdated and we need to keep up with the new technologies. After long discussions, we decided on XenForo as our new forum software and we've been working on it for quite some time to get it ready for the switch. We're getting closer to completion and it's expected to take place soon, we hope it'll provide a better user experience for all our members, especially mobile users will like the responsive design and the modern look.

There will be some downtime while the software switch is executed. So for that and the exact time it takes place, keep yourselves tuned into our Twitter and Facebook pages for updates.

vBulletin is getting outdated? You're still running version 4.1.13 instead of 4.2.x (not to mention switching to 5.0), but sure - whatever you say ^^

Well, I can understand getting tired of it and wanting to switch, but... is there a particular reason why you're choosing xenForo?
I always thought that if I were to choose another forum software than vB, it'd be IPB. I haven't even heard of xenForo before.
Just by looking at their own forum (without requesting demo access), I can't see any perks.

Mind killing my curiosity?

vB 4 isn't mobile-friendly which is a major concern among other things, the new version vB 5 has never been an option since many people consider it a failure. IPB was one of the alternatives and is arguably more feature-rich but XF seems to be a more stable and secure platform, and a natural upgrade to vB since their developers used to work for vB.

It's a great idea, glad to see you guys have put a lot of thought into it.

On the other hand, though, I think I've seen the ¨new forum¨ already -by accident- while google searching. That is not a problem, right? Or you rather keep it super secret '-' ?

Are requests for the new forum open? :p

Spam bots found it already, so no...not really a secret. It would be kind of hard to keep all the staff informed on it's progress without them being able to see and test it themselves. So no, not really a big deal.

Not sure what you mean about "requests" though.

I see than the new forum no longer has the "thanks" option, just the "like" one.
Will it get implemented in the future, or are you sticking to just the latter? And if so, will our received/given "thanks" get converted to "likes" instead?
That is, of course, with hope that the old thanks/likes db table will get converted to work on the new forum at all. :P

XF has no "thanks", so yes, we'll stick to "likes". We're planning to convert all thanks/likes to likes on XF, since thanks/likes are mutually exclusive, it won't be a problem.

Ran into multiple software issues over the last two days, the site is still continuing to be worked on.

After you moved the new forum to the old location, you forgot to update its top menu's path to point there as well.
Just a reminder :)

*sigh* Understandable. I just hope that all the data from the old forums will safely be transferred into the new forums since I would hate to lose all that work that I posted in both of my Rokushiki Robin threads. :(
