Those of you with experience with both XenForo and vBulletin....
What are the main differences?

I need a Forum and Gallery for a scrapbooking site.

I have some experience with vB and remember you could (in Admin) edit almost every string of viewable text.
Today I tried out the demo for XF and tried looking for the same option, but never found it.

I also have experience with PhotoPost Pro Gallery.. which I thought was fantastic. (No longer for sale)
After testing the XF Gallery I wondered if I should stop looking for PhotoPost Pro License and just go for XF.

As you maybe already figured out English is not my first language, not second neither...
I don`t understand if you are required to buy updates fees every year OR can pay if you want to update.
Will XF work without updates?

Also, does anyone know if there is a demo for vB 4 or 5?
