Downside on small communities is that there is a delay in update in count.

I don't have experience with Textile conversions, but it looks like Markdown-adjacent, and I've never really had concerns about the processing speed. If you have a Vanilla forum using Markdown, it's doing the HTML processing in real time at pageload. It's pretty darn fast. I don't honestly think it would have a major impact on the migration time.
I don't know enough about Drupal to offer any specifics, but if you know of a way to pre-process and store the rendered HTML on the table in Drupal, that would be a nice way to sidestep the issue regardless of what platform you head to.
The existing Drupal 7 package appears to assume discussions & comments are in rendered HTML. Vanilla does have the concept of input formats, and the migration tool does have the concept of filtering data as its being processed. So your options are:
Personally I'd go with option 3 if you're not super attached to Textile. There's already a PHP library for parsing Textile so I imagine it'd be pretty simple. I may be able to do that as well.
I use both Drupal and Vanilla and I don't think they are really comparable. Drupal is much bigger and more complex.
I'd suggest that the underlying issue perhaps is that the social media platforms have absorbed much of the demand for forums so that self-hosted forums and blogs are less common. There are still good reasons to host independently but it means reduced activity, although Vanilla has its own business model via cloud hosted forums which is a good thing from the point of view of open source users.
A lot of plugins are now included in the core software.
Never mind found out what the problem was, the "Reaction" plugin was overriding the YAGA plugin, which was crashing the software
There are plans for getting on a more consistent release cadence. I'm hoping to have an announcement on this tomorrow.
Appreciate everyone's patience!
i use Nudenet for detecting porn image or video
its python script, you need to code it yourself, scan GDN_Media if found porn, you can delete it or report to you
It is just from an earlier version
I believe bbpress uses wordpress hashes which uses a version of phppass
vanilla also uses phppass however thsi doesn't guarantee that passwords are portable it depends on what hash method is used, if blowfish is used for instance it might not be.
In Gdn_User table in the database what is HashMethod is used for these users? Does the Password fields have prefix of $P$ or $H$?
I forgot to get back about this, but posting now in case it could help someone with the same issue.
I contacted my host shortly after my last post and they quickly solved it :) It was the function PATCH not enabled on the server that caused it. After it was enabled it solved several other issues as well.
