I understand his suggestion wasn't to adopt IPB's method... I think Kier and Mike have their own style and way of doing things that are much better than others, so I know I don't have to worry about it being like IPB. :)
You showed a reference to IPB and I presumed you liked the way IPB did...
I wouldn't use IPB search for a reference. It's one of the areas when I used their product I found completely lacking. I often suggested tweaked and function to make it better, which was supported by others in the community, but fell on deaf ears of the developers..
I have had one coder, outside of xenforo offer to help for a price, with no results, and another coder within xenforo that has offered to help, but his schedule is pretty full I think.
If you can get this done, it would be great and I would pay you for it.
No one here has responded to that open thread, so I have gone out and hired a coder to handle this for me. He works full time and this is a side project so it might take a little longer than normal, but he is local to my area, reasonable priced and can handle the request.
I will give...
I use the Recent Activity as it's currently set as my homepage of my site.
I have a thread started asking to hire someone to tweak that page and make some changes. If and when I get that done the recent activity page will be used much more than it currently is.
Kier and Mike and Ashley could offer a discount if the owner would assign/release their old forum license to Xenforo over the years, wouldn't it be a hoot if Xenforo became the largest license holder of the other forums... lol!
No hits or suggestions/comments for this mod request?
I am willing to pay someone to get this working on my site. The price is negotiable, but I can tell you that I am willing to pay a fairly high amount as I think this is something greatly needed for me site.
If you are interested in this...
