    XF 2.2 PLEASE HELP ME I HAVE BEEN AWAY WITH COVID three months in hospital

    Almost A year later and all is well. I was in several hospitals including rehab and I'm just now starting to walk again. It was a wild ride because my Covid took me even after I had the shots from Moderna because of other conflicting medicines. My Xenforo board is OK now!

    XF 2.2 PLEASE HELP ME I HAVE BEEN AWAY WITH COVID three months in hospital

    I was able to get logged in by updating my software, however. I need my current password to change the existing password. Is there a link to make the change by another process? https://xenforo.com/customers/

    Google Adsense alternatives (for those of you with larger forums)

    We are all in the same boat with big tech being holier than the rest of us having no concern on their part about being helpful. Instead, they want our readers to come directly to them and they will do anything in their power to make that happen. Over a ten year period, I watched revenues decline...

    XF 2.1 Adding Text to Registration Form

    It would be nice if the powers that be would simply make the product more friendly for admins so that modifications and a dozen add-ons wouldn't be necessary. The above email and locations examples are excellent! Username, Password, and interest comments are already stock.

    Fake it till you make it – a take on fake users

    Gosh thanks! I'm a 79 year old retired communications engineer running a XenForo forum. Am I missing something here? Apparently the old dog needs to learn new tricks.

    XF 2.2 User Unable to Obtain Reasonable Forum Performance

    The Front Page loads fine. It's old html as I'm not conversant with CCS and I don't encourage its use except for newbies. Thanks for the speedtest list!

    XF 2.1 restore deleted thread

    That last method sounds good although the thread that I lost has 10 pages of posts. Is it possible to restore the post's user names after that re-entry? Otherwise, I have an entire backup restored on another domain, if there is a method of copying a thread from one domain to the other.
