I have a pretty active SMF 2.0.X Forum (150-200 concurrent users). It’s been pretty good to me, but they don’t really seem to have a truly responsive mobile solution and I have found a few things buggy and troublesome. So I have a few questions about Discourse:
a) Does it have a genuinely responsive theme? (I just noticed that it comes with a mobile app, so I guess I will ask what happens if they don’t use the app and they are on a mobile device?)
b) How easily can SMF be converted to Discourse and do you have a tool/wizard for that or how does that work? I have very few attachments; I do have POLLS (but am not terribly worried about them); and I do need PMs (Private Messages) converted if at all possible.
c) Is Discourse strictly cloud-based? Is that what the $100/month is all about? I have a dedicated, pretty beefy Windows server, but I guess I won’t need to use that for my Discourse forum if I go with a paid solution.
Looking forward to finding out more…
