Why is OCAU testing xenForo?

    We've been using vBulletin 3.x for a long time - well over a decade now. It's time we moved to something more mobile friendly and with more modern features. vBulletin 3.x has been officially unsupported for a long time now, while xenForo is a current product.

    You may be wondering why we don't migrate to vBulletin 4.x or 5.x instead of xenForo. Those two products, despite having the same name as vBulletin 3, are very different to the 3.x product and in fact are made by different people, because vBulletin has changed hands a couple of times since the 3.x days. xenForo is really the spiritual successor to vBB 3.x, having been made by the people who originally made vBB 3.x.

    So here we are. Feel free to play around and try to break stuff. This install is not running on an OCAU production server so you can't hurt the real site by doing anything here. Let me know in this thread if you see anything strange or interesting.

    Fascinating. This is a reply on mobile.

    Edit: mobile seems to work really well.. a hojillion times better than vbulletin 3 and no need for tapatalk it seems, although no app-type notifications.

    Hey Testerino - you're right. I did not get an email. It's on the to-do list now.

    edit: you are getting emails but I'm not.. have updated my settings.. still no. interesting.

    Ok now I'm actually watching this thread and have notifications set up properly. My account was weird because it was made during setup so didn't get the normal default settings yours got.

    Save draft works, but if you just close the window obviously it closes and you get nothing.

    It should auto-save drafts every 60 seconds (this is configurable).

    Andrew Wong for president, or at least for all the spurious notifications cause we know he loves that
