I recently realized just how little spam affects my forums now, so I just wanted to say thank you to the Xenforo developers for managing to take control of and minimize a problem that had long been the bane of us admins. :)
It's great that Xenforo provides a paid membership upgrade option.
However, would it be possible to add an option for an automated email be sent to such users a week before any renewals?
Just that would make for happier members. :)
Just a heads up that some of my forum members are complaining about problems with using IE11 since we upgraded to XF 2.1.2, specifically relating to the use of bbcode:
Not knocking what's been achieved with XF in the years I've been with this platform, but loading speed is now increasingly a concern and I'd like to suggest that becomes a focus for the dev team to focus on soon.
I mean, even the XF community forums don't rate too hot according to Google...
Yeah, I'm looking at loading times now and wondering how I can improve them.
Even the main XF community site doesn't score so well: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2F
Ah, right - I found the problem. :)
In my theme, this notice - both the background and links for options - were the same colour:
We strongly recommend enabling push notifications on this device so that you can be kept up-to-date with site activity.
Ask me another time...
Ah - then it sounds like I may have a styling issue that stops the "X" being visible.
I don't suppose you can recall offhand which piece of CSS relates to the colouring of the "X" please? :)
EDIT: Is it the following at the bottom of notices.less?
If you mean links in the About pages, these use HTML rather than BBcode, so you can easily include that HTML code for nofollow in links. To edit your Terms page, go to the phrase terms_rules_text . Alternatively, if you create a custom About page, you can simply put in your text with HTML code...
Some of my members are complaining that when they opt out of receiving Push Notifications, they can't get rid of the pop-up bar at the bottom of the screen asking if they'd like to receive Push Notifications.
I think the Push Notifications are a great idea and they are working great for me -...
@Mike Creuzer - did I misunderstand, but does Xpress effectively allow you to convert all forum threads to Wordpress posts?
If you have an existing active install, do be aware that your forum URLs may change!
