I've heard a lot of people tell me that XenForo is a low quality forum platform just like Simple Machines Forum. I haven't done much looking into XenForo at all so I here to get some of your opinions on the forum software. I'll be honest I'm getting tired of using MyBB and I think it's time for a change.

A while ago I made a similar thread asking about IPB and I got some pretty good responses but after doing a demo it just didn't really appeal to me.

Let me hear what you've got about XenForo!

I definitely wouldn't say it's low quality, it's not just that mainstream.
The 'fanbase' is a lot smaller so it doesn't have as many features as MyBB.

Xenforo is good for just a forum or just a content forum.

Thanks man. I'm thinking about getting an XenForo theme soon just for content ~ business related. But I'm not sure yet.

Yeah I see what you mean. I love the XenForo themes that I've checked out over the past few days. Simple, yet beautiful. But it does lack a lot of the things MyBB has.

You can always use a CMS and use mybb as a forum?
I'd be willing to help you do some things? Joomla has a bridge plugin for mybb-joomla account merging.

XenForo is ok for things like SpigotMC, yes, but I wouldn't use it for like community forums.
