    Default DBTech vBulletin and XenForo

    I have seen alot of questions and concerns about DBTech vBulletin and XenForo, I will try to put all the issues here.

    If you have a question that is not posted here ya can post it in this thread!!

    Question:
    Are you going to have mods for XenForo?


    Answer:
    Yes. We plan to have most of our bigger mods ported over the XF in 2010, and all of our mods by mid 2011


    Question:
    Are you going to still support the mods for vBulletin?


    Answer:
    We are absolutely going to be continuing to develop for vBulletin.

    Our personal opinions about the owners of vB etc will never affect the commitment we have to our customers


    Question:
    Since you are doing mods for XenForo will this affect the upgrades on the vBulletin mods I have purchased?


    Answer:
    We still very much intend to stay on the cutting edge of forum mods and software, and keep pace with the needs of our customers (including creating new products). There will be little to no difference in product creation/upgrade time with the addition of XenForo mods to our portfolio.


    Question:
    What is your current timeline for new mods?


    Answer:
    As far as a roadmap for the next 6-12 months, Things tend to change far too often in this market for us to have one of those. Products we could plan now would no longer be relevant, or things which just now are unneeded may become requested and popular.


    Question:
    Do you have a site for XenForo?


    Answer:
    Yes. http://xf.dragonbyte-tech.com/


    Question:
    Part of my issue with switching is, do I have the money (or desire to pay again) for the same mods I already have? Chances are, probably not. Which kinda sucks, but... I guess that's the way it goes.


    Answer:
    The plan at the moment is to make it easy for customers to switch (perhaps with a small fee to transfer licenses etc. Whatever we decide it certainly won't require complete repurchasing


    Question:
    Do you have any mods yet for XenForo?


    Answer:
    Yes we have two small mods as of 10/8/10 to get ourselves familiar with the XF structure.

    Question:
    Just wanted to ask if you plan to release your great shoutbox for XenForo?


    Answer:
    We're hoping to port most/all our modifications to XF vBShout being a priority due to its demand here.

    Right now we're waiting on the beta release before we can started on any of that, and with all the drama between XF/vB we can't commit to any specific deadlines.

    I don't get the hype behind XenForo.

    It's a very good system, seems more or less bug free, is cleaner than vB, is friendlier to modders (and thus us) than vB...

    Lots of reasons for the hype really =P

    It looks ugly in my opinion. And the forum descriptions are rollovers... that's strange. I don't know, everything about it looks old. Like phpBB or something.

    Hmmm, this is the first time I heard of XenForo. Just take a look at their announcement board and recognize some familar name.
    Well some tech leader of vB....

    Just register on Xenforo site and try it. It's very simple and this interface is very social (like facebook, twitter). I think is the most modern forum software from a user view (UI/UX, social features etc.).

    The Xenforo enthusiasm are ended here? Now the stable version is coming very soon, i'm ready to buy it and some dbt addons...but i don't see any update from the dbt staff and any request buy the customers that can influence the decision of the DBT Team...*sigh*

    Don't forget, DBT still has customers using vB and they need to support them as well. I'm sure that there is xF working happening, but at the same time, they can't (and I'm sure won't) abandon their vB customers, those customers who helped make DBT the success it is today.

    People like myself, I'd like to switch to xF, but there are MANY mods that need to be converted to xF before I could think about moving, many of which aren't DBT mods. So long as the bulk of the DBT customers are on vB (pure assumption on my part), I'd assume the larger part of their focus will be there. That's not to say I know anything you don't, this just makes logical sense to me.

    What Trekkan said essentially.

    We do have a number of mods being ported to XF at the moment, but it is being done between updates and new vBulletin mods.

    Our first responsibility is to our current customers - we've had very few indicate they have switched to XenForo, and we said that when we go into XF it won't cause any delays on our vb software - thats a promise we intend to keep.

    XF is still part of our long term plans, but unless a bunch of customers tell us they have switched it will be done as and when time is available, and not be our main priority.

    Hope that clears the situation up!
