In an effort to ease the transition to XenForo, I’ll be posting some instructions here for how to handle basic forum tasks. This won’t be comprehensive – for a more complete guide, check out the official XenForo instructions – but should be enough to get you comfortable with day-to-day activities. I’ll update/add to this guide as needed, and will be creating a separate guide specifically for forum moderators. Glossary XenForo uses some terms that are slightly different from vBulletin (and other forums). Here are some key ones to be aware of: Messages – These are what vBulletin calls “posts”. Your number of posts will be migrated over to become your current number of messages. Alerts – These replace vBulletin’s “notifications”. You’ll see an Alerts menu at the top right of the page when you’re signed in (next to your profile information). Here you’ll see notifications on threads and forums you’re watching, and you can manage your alert preferences from here. Conversations – These are private messages you have with other users (show in your Inbox).
