    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Perhaps there is a way to do it by manually editing a template to set a lower cutoff for the hamburger menu?

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Thanks @briansol. That's exactly what I was looking for. Here's what I've got right now. I've noticed that when the page width is below 650px, the tabs are replaced by a "hamburger/3drawers menu." Is there any way to turn this off? I tried changing the "medium responsive break point" but...

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    By the way, thanks, everyone, for your understanding that I want to do this strange thing and for being helpful rather than trying to convince me not to do it. :) I understand that the idea of making a web forum with only one subforum and correspondingly stripping out so much of XF's amazing...

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Hi everyone. Is there a way to make it so that when people go to my forum at https://www.mydomain.org/ they automatically see the thread listing of the only subforum. In other words, when they go to https://www.mydomain.org/, I would like them to see https://www.mydomain.org/forum/all-topics.2/...

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Here's why I like it, I think. If you go to my forum, you immediately see topics. Having run a community for a decade (about 2M pageviews a year) for a similar community, I know that that is exactly what they want. They click on the threads they want and they are done for the day. The other XF...

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Thanks folks. Those are helpful tips. I've been tinkering some more and gone super minimal, and I love it. I remember when I set up my first forum a decade ago, I wanted all of the bells and whistles. Now, I look at my super minimal version and I love it. Here's what it looks like now. There...

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Thanks, @whynot and @beerForo. I especially like the idea of prefixes. I also just discovered the public navigation settings at myforum.org/admin.php?navigation/ . I'll have to check these out, too. Is there any way to move the site logo to the left of the tabs in order to save space? (aka to...

    XF 2.2 Only only one subforum: how to simplify interface

    Hi everyone, Any ideas for how I could greatly simplify the XenForo interface if I have only one subforum? I'm new to XF2 and am setting up a new forum. Many visitors to the new forum don't understand web forums, so I want to keep the interface as simple as possible. When they arrive at the...

    I must have gotten it to work since I've been using the code for years. :)

    XF 1.5 Get post_id from thread_id (please!) in Cron Callback

    Thanks for your help! That was wonderfully simple. I was worried it might involve a XenForo_Application::get, XenForo_Model::create, a cache call or something like. I don't know how to set up a PHP debugger and wouldn't know where to look. The code is running now and works great.

    XF 1.5 Get post_id from thread_id (please!) in Cron Callback

    Hi folks, This is a bit of a newbie question, but I'd be super grateful if you could help out. Within a simple Cron Callback, if I have a thread_id, how do I get the post_id for the first post in the thread? It's is simple as that. For background, see the following: I've got the following...

    XF 1.5 Responsive BBCode with argument

    Never mind. Figured it out. Here is the HTML replacement. Pretty cool: <span> <style scoped> @media (max-width: 500px) { .on-the-fly-class-{option} { font-size: {option}%; } } </style> <span class="on-the-fly-class-{option}">{text}</span> </span>

    XF 1.5 Responsive BBCode with argument

    Okay, this is a moonshot. Is there some CSS wizardry that will allow me to do the following: I'd like to make a BBCode called mobile size that replaces the followingIntroduction with <span style=font-size:{option}%;>Introduction</span> However, it only does so when the screen size is below...

    Keyword Management (Keyword Replace) [Deleted]

    Do you ever find that you want to turn KWM off for specific posts? I do and I found a hack to make it happen. I just insert the following after "$oldmsg = $message['messageHtml']; on line 94 of /forum/library/phc/KeywordManagement/Helper/KWMHelper.php...
