    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    Small changes we're completed for the thread area Today. -Logo Icon was made a smaller size -Removed the "watch" icon that appeared before threads -Made the "Sticky" Icon white In the future I think making the thread title size bigger would be ideal. Forum has also started to fill up with...

    Add-on Would this add-on be Possible?

    Thank you for the reply. I had figured there must have been something. I knew vb had like an announcement feature and was unsure if xenforo had something similar. Thank you. Yes this looks feature rich, but I think I would only need a more simplified version, probably need to hire someone to...

    Beer Money Forum

    This a smart concept. Who hasn't asked at some point "How do I make money online?" Very easy draw and you have the activity to entice newcomers to stay.

    Add-on Would this add-on be Possible?

    I was hoping of adding a sort of "Featured Thread" add-on to my forum. Mods or Administrators would be able to make any thread Featured. When this happens the thread would appear above sticky threads in all categories. Would something like this be possible? I made a quick mock-up of the...

    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    Had some trouble the last couple weeks, theme had to be reset to an older build with many functions broken. Was a headache but everything has now been resolved. However we were able to make some customization to the posting area. The main goal here was to remove all the distractions away from...

    Xenforo 2.x | Xenforo 1.x | Custom Add-on Development | Custom Styling | Xenforo Migration | Technical Support & Consulting

    Hired this team again for a large custom development project. They we're able to take my design and implement it into a sleek working theme almost exactly like my mock-up. They seem to really specialize in customization. If you're looking into making regular or even highly customized changes...

    MyMilitia.com - Love Me Hate Me

    I love the way you've added the mouse hover over the user info. Looks really nice. And it solves 2 problems. Makes it so the posts are smaller while giving a cleaner look. But it also provides additional info on users if someone desires. Really good implementation here. And it just...

    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    Strange, Speed Test results are coming up decent. But if this happens frequently it might be a server problem. Unfortunately all my content had to reset when the new theme launched. When I update the header this should be addressed. I've decided to remove the ads on the homepage and...

    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    The ads are actually set up to load after the everything else, so the website is still responsive while they load. But I see your point. After turning off ad-block and looking at it myself, they're rather intrusive. Especially the ones on the homepage and the ads below the op post. Content...

    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    I agree I need to figure out a better solution for the ads. I could get rid of them altogether. Or at the very least trim them down. The ones on the homepage for example need to go. I'll be addressing this soon as I look towards making my site more mobile friendly. That being said. I'm...

    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    After much delay the redesign to NeFitter has finally gone live. Shout-out to ForumCube for helping me with many customization. The main goal was to completely revamp the homepage and change the forum tabs to give the website a bit more structure and visual appeal. The homepage now 3 sections...

    Cat breeds forum SjEd

    To build engagement I think enticing people to showcase their cats to the community is the way to go. I would probably even make it front and center of the website. When someone first visits the site, they need to see people sharing cats pics and the community commenting on them. That visual...

    Cat breeds forum SjEd

    Cool niche. I would look into optimizing and streamlining the album section to have it more front and center for the website. People showing off their cats seems like the right way to grow engagement for your forum.

    Anthem Hub

    The problem you might run into is there isn't a lot of info about the game currently. Bioware probably wont be talking much about the game until next year probably? Could be fun to speculate though. You're main competitor is probably the reddit sub. But your site could become the #1...

    Nefitter (Geek/Fitness) Can I grow a forum?

    There's a whole slew of problems with the current set-up, one of the reasons why I'm getting the whole website redesigned. I agree those ads are not ideal. I need to implement responsive ads that change size depending on the device. Will be looking into this. The Forum section tabs are...
