    I would suggest you to move to XenForo. I have make the move and really happy with XF. More fast, and less resource use.

    Where did you get all those stats from. Is there some plugin for XenForo that displays some better stats then the stock tool.

    One thing that is stopping us from making the move is the blogging system that is built into Vbulletin, did you find any solution for this ?

    I think I found a good solution that xenforo has to offer, now just to track down vbseo to xenforo conversion. So glad to get rid of this POS lol.

    Yeah... it's pretty painful for me when I have to get back in vBulletin sites now. Especially if they are running 5.x. :)

    That one is BASED on the one I built... they just made it more universal (I didn't bother to do anything that was outside the scope of what I needed it for [migrating just this site]).

    So yeah... that one IS the one I made, but with some stuff added to make it easier to use.

    From the code it looks like you designed it to keep all the ID's (threads/posts/attachments) the same as vbulletin for url redirection ?

    I hope to see the same on my forum. 20 days after the conversion uniques went slightly up. We had no drop in traffic so far.
    I think everything is gonna stay the same. But of course i hope for more. :p
    I also noticed the speed increase and decrease of the used resources. :) That's cool!

    It's just become worse and worse software over the last 4 or so years.

    Sorry if I still didn't get it ;-)
    Does anybody know, if you can (with the help of available scripts, etc.) import a whole vBulletin 3.8.x based (big) forum into XenForo and then keep all vbSEO URLs?
    That would be fantastic! My boss won't like it to redirect all these thread URLs which are already indexed by google since many years. We fear that we may fall down the index when doing redirects.

    Thx in advance!
