    XF 1.5 Google Analytics - How To Track User Groups - Members Vs. Guests

    I've been searching for a solution for years and can't figure out a way to track specific user groups in Google Analytics. Ideally, I'd like to track all my groups, but I understand the complexity around the fact that one member can be in multiple groups. So, I'd be willing to settle on guests...

    Google PageSpeed Insights Page Speed And SEO

    So, it's very well known that Google strongly takes speed-loading into account when ranking a site (for example, see here). I just ran my 1.5 site through their page speed insight site and got 21 :( <SO SAD> I know a lot of that is due to ads on my site, etc., so I decided to come run it on...

    XF 1.2 Quick & Easy / Dirty Pages With SQL Database Query Results

    HUGE THANK YOU to @NixFifty for helping me with this!!! Change your php code to this: $myrows3 = $mydb->fetchOne(" SELECT COUNT(*) FROM `xf_user` WHERE `message_count` > 5000"); In your template use {$myrows3} or if you want thousands separation, use {xen:number $myrows3}

    XF 1.2 Quick & Easy / Dirty Pages With SQL Database Query Results

    Hmm... I still can't figure this out. :( Any ideas on how to simply call one data-point vs. a "loop"?

    XF 1.2 Quick & Easy / Dirty Pages With SQL Database Query Results

    Hey guys, I'm back with another newbie question! So far all my pages have used "loops" to display multiple rows. Well, let's say I don't want to display a bunch of rows of data... I just want to display a single DB data point? For example, here's the single data item query I want to display in...

    XF 1.5 Display "Post Number X of Y" top right of each post

    Update: So, I'm totally novice when it comes to templates, but from what I understand: The "message" template/ tab is included in the "post" template, and changing the code in the "message" template / tab seems to do the trick on it's own. If this is incorrect or might cause a problem (or...

    XF 1.5 Display "Post Number X of Y" top right of each post

    Thanks @Russ So, to clarify, I go to the "post" template, and in that, I see multiple tabs. I found "#{xen:calc '{$post.position} + 1'}" in the first "post" tab, and changed it, but it had no effect. In the "message" tab, I also saw "#{xen:calc '{$post.position} + 1'}", and I replaced that...

    XF 1.5 Display "Post Number X of Y" top right of each post

    This is a tricky phrase / item to search for and find. I've done all kinds of iterations and haven't found any hacks or addons. Hopefully someone can help me out? Basically, at the top-right of every post where the post # is displayed, I'd like to have it show the post number and total number...

    TPU: Detect and Block Spam Registrations

    Wait, what?!? This isn't ported or going to be ported to XF 2?!?! This is by far one of the most helpful addon's I've installed. I can't imagine what would happen to the spam flood gates if we didn't have this.

    SEO quality strategy for my xf board

    I'm glad I found this thread. I'm working with a well-respected (and expensive) SEO consultant company and they are strongly suggesting that we noindex (via meta, not via robots.txt ) a bunch of areas of my site to reduce thin content and drag to the search / crawl budget that they allocate to...

    noindex meta tag on tag pages

    Digging up this old thread. An SEO firm I'm contracting said: "Several /tags/ URLs are showing up in Google's Search Index causing "index bloat" All tag pages must be made "not-indexable" by way of meta robots tags. Reference: https://developers.google.com/search/reference/robots_meta_tag...
