SMF | Forum Promotion – Best Webmaster, Admin and Internet Marketing Forum

I don’t see this talked about too much here, so I figured I’d go ahead and start a topic. :D

Who here has experience with SMF? Do you like it? How would you compare it to other forum software?

I’m a big fan of SMF and have been using it since I was 13. I find it’s open-source nature makes it super easy to modify every last bit of it, so long as you know what you’re doing. However, it feels a bit out-dated in some ways. Avatar uploads come to mind, things like Xenforo have very nice javascript uploaders that let you resize & crop the final upload, but SMF has nothing like this.

I’ve considered purchasing a Xenforo license to upgrade my forum to, however I’m unsure how much of my custom work there can easily be carried over.
