    XF 2.2 Displaying threads started counts on hover

    A member today complained that the "threads started" count was not as accessible as it was on vBulletin 3.1. Is there any option to show thread counts when you hover over the persons name?

    XF 2.2 New questions feature - can it be reversed?

    Just had a thought on this. On my tech forums, I have members who sometimes do polls. At least they have done in the past. If I convert my forum to a Questions forum, I will lose the polls. It will also stop them from doing polls in the future. To me, it would be much better to have the option...

    XF 2.2 Search forums - single word

    I have created a search forum where I want it to display any thread that has the word Troll in it. But when I use Troll in the search box, it also shows threads which have the word controlling. How do I set it so it only finds the word Troll?

    XF 2.2 New questions feature - can it be reversed?

    Thanks Chris. The question I have to answer for myself is if I want to change all threads in that forum section to Questions. The option to set Question as the default might be something to consider as a useful maintenance release.

    No, not using that one.

    XF 2.2 New questions feature - can it be reversed?

    Having a discussion with a few regular members. I'm thinking that many members won't even notice there is a Questions tab. Is it possible to set by default which tab is enabled when you first enter that forum section? If for my technical areas I could auto-set it to Question, that would be...

    XF 2.2 Flashing alert number

    I'm not sure what that addon is. I use Latest posts live, if that is similar.

    XF 2.2 Flashing alert number

    Since upgrading to 2.2, some members are getting a flashing alert number over the bell when they refresh the page. See attached video. Any ideas why?

    XF 2.2 New questions feature - can it be reversed?

    Can a moderator just change one thread into a Question type, if it was started as a Discussion type?

    XF 2.2 New questions feature - can it be reversed?

    I'm wondering if it makes sense to convert all previous threads into Question type threads, if possible. That way you always have a similar experience for that forum section. Wonder if its possible.

    Similar Threads - does it reduce posting?

    A percentage of posts might have members linked to another post, but you still get the new content. It isn't a duplicate in that everybody asks questions in different ways. Google will munch on the new posts too. I'm wondering if there is a facility to turn off the suggested posts when someone...

    Similar Threads - does it reduce posting?

    Before upgrading to Xenforo 2.2, I had a Similar Threads add-on that would only show the similar threads when viewing a thread or after posting a new thread. The new version shows similar threads as you type. My concern is two-fold: 1. It might discourage the creation of new content since...

    Ok, that's great. Giving it a trial run now.

    That is good to hear. Do you just lose the voting and best solution data, if you reverse and reapply?

    XF 2.2 New questions feature - can it be reversed?

    I like the new Questions feature, where you select the best answer, vote up answers etc. I run a forum that is for tech, and wish to trial out this new feature in one section. My concern is that if I set it up and members don't like it, can I reverse the decision later, so that the voting and...
