    Please add support for external Database authentication

    Sadly I'm now moving to coding my own forums for my community, as this is a necessary feature that isn't in XenForo. Sadly that's $140 + add-ons that are down the drain just for the lack of one necessary feature. Hopefully, one day this will be added and I can come back to XenForo.

    How did your forum set thread delete permissions?

    No, but sadly we don't have the problem of many threads either 😂

    No, it keeps it where it is. Although Moderators go through every so often as part of their duties manually moving deleted / dead threads into a hidden 'Trash' node.

    I let my users soft-delete their own threads, in case they posted something by accident etc. But no-one (not even admins) have permissions to hard-delete.

    User Registration & Custom User DB

    Just to jump on the bandwagon with this one, this was a major feature that I've always wished XF2 had, the ability to use an external database for users. https://xenforo.com/community/threads/please-add-support-for-external-database-authentication.161321/

    Please add support for external Database authentication

    Hi there, I have an external PHP site that I would like to integrate with XenForo. It would be nice if XenForo could use the database that I already have (passwords stored with bcrypt), by being told which fields to lookup for certain functions. For example, IPB (Invision) offers this...

    Password encryption and storage

    @Tealk I had a go with that, and that plugin uses some assumptions on how the database is formatted. I recommend using https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/user_backend_sql_raw - However I didn't succeed with this one either sadly.

    XF 2.1 Content bookmarks and the return of per-post share controls

    Is there an option to enable the What's new bolt on larger displays or would that be a code edit?

    XF 2.1 Content bookmarks and the return of per-post share controls

    That new method of showing Bookmarks works a lot better imo, Nicely done :)
