1) Links open in new pages 2) Easier to post pictures, can be done from phones and tablets 3) Pictures are resized on upload 4) More phone and tablet friendly due to responsive styling 5) Easy to imbed videos from YouTube, Vimeo etc. (does not need embed code, just use the video address) 6) Alerts/notifications sent to users on topic reply or PM reply 7) PM reply box is styled exactly like the topic reply box, easier to use on a phone 8) Drafts are saved every minute so you won't lose a whole post if lose your internet connection 9) Easier to admin regarding template modifications and styling 10) Separate test forum allows experimentation so the public forum has less disruption 11) Xenforo has a much better technical support forum (the software developers actually participate) 12) Xenforo has a far greater future potential than phpBB3 The styling and colours may not be to everyone's liking. I've experimented more and have found that some changes will really mess up the layout. The important thing is that the site functions OK. I will continue to make small adjustments as time goes by. Please feel free to post about any problems you have.
