    Is PHPStorm and MAMP Pro the best development environment on the Mac?

    I'm looking to get into Xenforo and WordPress development. Everything I have read says that PHPStorm and MAMP Pro tools are the best. Can someone either confirm or deny, please? If it is not the best environment, what should I use instead? I appreciate your help.

    Would you consider the media gallery addon as essential?

    I am starting a forum on mental health and was wondering if people thought the media gallery addon would be considered essential or not? I think it would be nice to allow people to upload images that make them feel happy and meme images for a bit of a laugh, but I'm not whether the media gallery...

    Which SMTP provider do you use to send transactional emails?

    I'm curious to hear what the best SMTP server providers are for things like forgotten password emails etc. I've used Amazon SES before, but I don't want to create an AWS account to send some emails. Are there any other SMTP server providers who are reasonably cheap and can handle increasing...

    XF 2.2 Forum URL shows /forums/forums/ instead of just /forums/

    I'm having a problem I can't seem to fix. I installed Xenforo in my WordPress development environment because I wanted to do add-on programming. Still, the URL shows /forums/forums/ instead of/forums/, and I have no idea how to fix it. I am using Apache 2 along with mod_rewrite on Ubuntu 20.04...

    XF 2.2 How can I integrate WordPress with the latest version of Xenforo 2.2?

    Thank you for your reply. That looks like an exciting addon. On the other hand, I'd like to learn to do all of this myself as I have a fair few ideas for functionality that I'd like to be completely custom on my site. I'll certainly come back and give your addon a closer look if I get stuck.

    XF 2.2 How can I integrate WordPress with the latest version of Xenforo 2.2?

    Thank you for the link, but I wondered where the documentation was for making your addons? I have a few unique ideas that I'd like to make. I've programmed in other languages before, just not PHP.

    XF 2.2 How can I integrate WordPress with the latest version of Xenforo 2.2?

    I have a couple of ideas for my website, which I am getting ready but I'd like to integrate WordPress and Xenforo so that when a post is made in WordPress, it does a few things in Xenforo. I'm just not too sure on how to go about this project. I assume this would be a WordPress addon that then...

    XF 2.2 Xenforo not showing clean URLs on Ubuntu 20.04

    Ah, I managed to fix the problem. It was split off into a different Apache 2 config file that I overlooked. Thank you.

    XF 2.2 Xenforo not showing clean URLs on Ubuntu 20.04

    I've done that with the .htaccess file already. I'm stumped. URL rewrites are certainly enabled in Apache 2.

    XF 2.2 Xenforo not showing clean URLs on Ubuntu 20.04

    I've just installed the latest version of Xenforo on a brand new Ubuntu 20.04 server, and I can't for the life of me get pretty URLs to work. I just got a 404 Not Found error. I'm not entirely sure what I am doing. Can someone offer some advice? I'm happy to provide any extra information...

    Password-less Login Using Web Authentication API (WebAuthn)

    I came here to post webauthn as a feature request. Having webauthn support would make integrating Xenforo into an existing website so much easier.

    Public service announcement: Check your MySQL backup!

    Thanks for the heads up. Just fixed this issue. I know this is off-topic but do I need to do the same thing for Wordpress and Mediawiki sites? I'm just wondering if my MySQL backups for them are affected by the same issue.
