    Die hard Vbulletin fans are still waiting for vBulletin to pull their heads out of their asses. If vBulletin folds and no longer offers software that is compatible with mobile devices and new os's then we better be ready.

    Of course i dont want to anything without a complete test and feedback from you members. Like i said we are just in the testing phase, we are not going to upgrade tonight or even next week but we need to open a discussion about it.

    That being said, dont flood this thread with nonsense or you will be removed :)

    Lets keep this thread on track and on topic.

    Now that being said, i have already pulled a poirtion of our database to a test "URL" This is only a test URL if we upgrade we will stay Dawgshed .com

    I have a template there i was working with so just ignore logos and such.

    Go test it out, the accounts is the same as it is here now. We will not be accepting any new signups so dont even waste your time :)

    It's a license you purchase for the forum layout. All the coding, etc. vBulletin owns it and will sell it to you.

    Dawg, what's a copy of vBulletin go for these days?

    The admin and mod features are lacking in Xenforo bro. No animated avatars either. Or at least its not easy to get them animated.

    $249 :jj:

    Xenforo $140 but you have to pay a yearly support fee of 50 plus pay 50 more for a search feature.

    Clean. Fast. But the title bar at the top has to go. Blocks a lot of real estate in landscape mode.

    Sounds like that's the price you pay for upgrades that vBulletin isn't offering. :)

    Don't worry about it. Bethsucks took care of it quickly.
    If you didn't read it, you should.

    You need a good laugh. :jj:

    Most of the big forums like us have already switched. when digitalpoint went i knew vBulletin was in trouble. All the big companies have made the move to Xenforo also. IGN, Sony etc...
