    Looking for feedback: A new look at forum user experience

    These are interesting points, and I’ve always taken every opportunity to improve our community sense of “we are all in this together, like a big, but strange family”. I’m wondering if most forum-leaders, and I include myself here, are missing some things we could be doing to utilize what we...

    RM 2.2 Category Totals - Fix or Remove

    Okay, I'll check on that and try to figure out which one it is, I'm guessing it's one of three I can think of. Thanks!

    RM 2.2 Category Totals - Fix or Remove

    So this is a 2 part question... Part 1 I have a lot of resources that have the "Does not have a file" option set, and as such, they don't advance the count in the category listing. So, I end up with several categories with many multiple listings, and a Zero count, and so members think they are...

    I don't think we disagree on the majority of your points, unless I'm misunderstanding something about your post. My forum "IS" a register for free platform with a premium option after the fact... That doesn't change the fact that the Payment Integration is OLD, OUTDATED, and IN NEED OF UPDATE...

    Interesting how in the recent Xenforo Insights Video, Episode 5, Community management, part 2 https://xenforo.com/insights#episode5 At 54:45 you can hear Mike from Audentio praise XF for offering a Core Community Platform that let's you create a community Premium Membership Model that's your...

    Thanks for pointing that out, I think I've seen the thread before. Make me wonder why XF hasn't updated the API after all these years. That thread was started 9 / nearly 10 years ago, and they still haven't updated the API? Is there something the old API does that you can't do with the new...

    This is the best explanation of this problem I've seen yet. I frequently have trouble with members who wish to upgrade their premium membership in Xenforo, probably half a dozen times a year. It's always confusing to explain they need to cancel their premium membership first in order to...

    SEO for xenforo

    So, perhaps these are the questions we should really be asking... Does XF need further technical SEO refinements by an SEO expert? Or: Do XF owners need to do a better job maintaining their forums with an eye for SEO content, and perhaps bring on an expert SEO advisor to improve their layout...

    Ok, so this add-on has been working well for a few weeks now. Had a discussion with my staff this week, and we wanted to expand it's use, and today I discovered a possible issue, or maybe it's just me and how I did it.... It seems like Article Forums can't be setup with Slave Article...

    Interesting, at first glance, looks like a neat add-on!

    [tl] Thread Symbiotics [Paid]

    Great update, so I just have one question after starting a discussion with my staff members, do the symbiotic threads show in the "What's New" and latest threads? We are assuming they do not, or are toggleable, because only the "original thread" really needs to show in most cases. We wouldn't...

    Actually that's a simple and effective solution, I like that idea!

    While I'm at it, I should point out this particular request: I don't see this in your implementation screenshots, is there any indication for members viewing the thread, that it's shared among multiple forums?

    This looks like exactly what I had suggested a long time ago, I need to discuss this addon with my staff.... https://xenforo.com/community/threads/live-thread-redirect-in-multiple-forums.46804/
