    looking for someone to fix up a plugin

    If you don't provide any details, you likely won't get much in the way of conversations. If you provide some background as to what your requirements are, you are more likely to get a response from a developer.

    Main site content and news

    There is also a static page feature built in to XenForo. If you need content, then you can use that without needing any secondary installs or integrations. If you want to incorporate that content as part of your site navigation, then you could use the custom tabs extension. This way, you're...

    XF 1.5 Two-Step Verification and Security Improvements

    XF 1.5 Two-Step Verification and Security Improvements

    I've been using Authy now as my daily-driver for 2-factor. I previously used Google Authenticator, and whilst it did the job, I find myself swapping and factory resetting my phones frequently enough that re-provisioning my accounts has started to get annoying. I have SMS verification enabled as...

    State of XF Coders

    I'll probably be shot by a lot of people for saying this, but I'd very much prefer the VALVe approach. If it isn't ready, don't push it out the door. I'd love to see a release of XF2.0 as much as the next guy, sure, but I'd much rather wait for a better product.

    I don't have a working copy of xF1.5 to test this on yet. When I do, I'll look this over.

    how to set up XF for load balancing?

    Databases are fun. You could have an external DB server, but that will not ensure high availability, and will also increase your load times because of the connection overhead. Thankfully, there are ways to solve this! If you use something like Percona XtraDB, you can have a local read server on...
