    Importers

    I do have to say, a non-production development license would be tremendously appreciated. If that were available, it's likely there'd already be a MODX integration.

    Spam Management Question

    I'd definitely like to see Stop Forum Spam and Project Honeypot during registration with good rules to automate blocking registrations. For example, on our existing forum, 9/10 times if the IP is a spammer source and the email address is clean but at a @yahoo.com / @yahoo.co.uk we get forum...

    We're evaluating switching from SMF at MODX, but we need to dive into XenForo's authentication code. We have not bought a license yet so we can see the code, but my gut says it would work. By the same token if it doesn't, we don't want to flush money down the drain if the initial code review...

    The need for this isn't all that great if you have just a few thousand members honestly. But when you have a very large community and you're trying to engage more users/prospective users, logging in via OpenID/OAuth is a great way to convert new site visitors. The reason is they don't have to...

    That's what Engage provides: a robust OpenID/OAuth platform and quite a bit more. The win is it's a relatively straightforward API and you don't have to develop and maintain the code.

    Out of curiosity, why wouldn't you want to give forum users more options for logging in with existing accounts?

    It'd be awesome to be able to use something like JanRain Engage for authentication: http://www.janrain.com/products/engage

    [Suggestion] XenForo Connect

    There may be a lot of authentication providers, but there are many existing sites and applications with user systems that already exist that would LOVE to have a great forum to bolt on top. Offloading authentication via an API would be a killer feature that developers could use to integrate...

    [Suggestion] XenForo Connect

    Just as important as being able to use the XenForo user system for authenticating other applications, it should be possible to have XenForo use an existing authentication method from other applications (external authentication, be it OAuth, OpenID, etc.).

    Xenforo & Wordpress Bridge

    All GPL issues aside, I look forward to getting our hands on XF and taking it for a whirl very soon. :P

    Xenforo & Wordpress Bridge

    I don't really think the FSF can go after anyone on anyone's behalf since the FSF doesn't own the IP. If, however, WP invited them to do so they could but it would be in a formal legal representation: the FSF's counsel representing WP as attorneys. Utterly insane in my opinion and everyone else...

    Xenforo & Wordpress Bridge

    There's nothing inherently wrong with the GPL, but you're dead on with how Joomla and Wordpress choose to enforce it. We absolutely and specifically from day one have take a very opposite view of the GPL, and I can assure you the FSF does not have the right to enforce our IP rights as the...

    Xenforo & Wordpress Bridge

    I founded and run an Open Source PHP content managment platform which we've been developing for the last 7 years or so. We made MODx originally because creating pure HTML-CSS driven sites with zero creative limitations or making assumptions about how your content should be structured just wasn't...
