    I run my own vbulletin forum, which incidentally runs the same version as this one. There are not many mobile themes for such an old version of vb (can only find two actually, and neither work/look great).

    The MR mobile is incredible....was it custom designed or is it downloadable from somewhere on the internet?

    I don't think it's built in. Otherwise we wouldn't have had to deal with the monstrosity that was the wap site. :p

    Go with xenforo :) the legal case is on the verge of being wrapped up in xenforos factor. V. Is the most unstable option right now. Even wikimedia are sueing them (Internet brands) now! :eek:

    We've been wanting Xenforo for a while now and were waiting to see where the legal case went. Only thing is our forum is extensively modified and we're not sure were ready to move over just yet just for a mobile template.

    vBulletin 3.8 is like the Windows XP of the forum world. Tried and true but it's showing its age.
