Guys, I've deleted several posts since this is not the place to air personal differences. If you have issues with each other, take them to PM, don't post about them so others have to listen to them.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Really? That's interesting. What your audience like about vb3 more over vb4? I've never thought users find it better as well. I'm interested to get to know what your users say.

Because the forum I've been posting on since 2001 is vb3 and most of my friends from there seem to prefer it over vb4 and xenforo. I'll either get vBSEO or just go back to xenforo after encountering this htaccess problem.

After reading your post, it's pretty clear that your users just wanted a casino. It has nothing to do with the function of Xenforo or vBulletin.

I know at least a dozen forum owners who moved from vBulletin to Xenforo and not one of them considered moving back. You're not the only one to find that Xenforo's SEO appears to be far better streamlined (no secret) and overall performance is much faster.

My advice is that anyone who puts up a forum should think about what is most important to them. If basic forum activity is most important as well as performance, I find Xenforo is the better tool and opinions might vary. If there are VB specific items like a Casino or some of the remaining supported mods that are important to your users, then there is no reason to switch away from vBulletin. Pretty simple really.

I've lost interest in running forums so I'm going to delete my new vB4 forum and redirect it to my main site.

I'll still make some vB4 skins for qapla.com though.
