Hello all, I've been a long time reader of TAZ, and this is really my first post on this board. I run a vBulletin 4.x forum (link here) and we have used it since 2011. It has served us well over the years but as you all know, vBulletin is really on its way out. I have done so much custom coding and modifications of our forum's software over the years it almost feels like a completely different product. And frankly, I am tired of writing and rewriting code to keep the software flowing with the newer web standards as well as newer software engines such as PHP 7 and NGINX, I'd rather be focused on developing applications and furthering discussions as opposed to taping together various pieces of backend code etc. I am having a rather hard time deciding on a forum engine/suite to replace vBulletin, however. There are a good number of choices out there and honestly when coming them to vBulletin, they all seem like a much better choice. The last thing I want to do is post a "which forum software is the best" thread, being an administrator for 5+ years you think I'd know better, so let me give you guys a bit of an idea on what I really am looking for, and hopefully some of you have been where I'm at and can help guide my path... What I'm looking for in a forum engine is... 1.) Excellent performance and up to date on web standards (proper css, adapting to mobile devices and such, responsive themes, etc) - this is my main primary concern... 2.) A CMS built in is preferable... 3.) Needs to support HTTPS/SSL without me having to edit 100 different .php files to make it work properly... 4.) As far as the way threads/postbits are displayed and such, I prefer it to be something like vBulletin/XenForo as opposed to like vanilla forums (it just seems way too minimal and social media-esque)... Honestly, I really like XenForo. My main concern is the timing - with the release of XenForo 2.0 on the horizon, would I be shooting myself in the foot by converting our forum over to XenForo 1.x just to have 2.0 swoop in and make our XenForo 1.x installation obsolete? I don't know enough about the difference between versions to know if 2.0 is such a paradigm shift that waiting for 2.0 is necessary. Anyway, any input you guys can give me on all of this is greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!
