    Is there a page builder?

    Yes, this one is the perfect solution, but it is even better when combining it with an external page builder and exporting the code, pasting it into the template of that resource you shared!

    Is there a page builder?

    I recommend you to create a page and include a custom HTML page into it. If you want to hide the XF components like the footer etc you can do this with CSS! There are some great Tailwind Page builders where you can export the HTML code

    Anyone use a different term other than forums or community?

    Thank you for the invitation! I just created an account, waiting for approval. Forum looks indeed interesting, definitely going to be active there! 😄

    Sorry to hear that! I think for now the best (and free!) solution is to just reach out to bloggers that match with your niche and ask them for a kind of post exchange, as in; They write an article and mention your forum, and you also post some of their articles on your forum, or either a...

    We tried this. We used to have a landing page, but it impacted the amount of registrations quite a lot. So I removed it. Looks like straight down to business is indeed the most effective way, especially if you lock down certain features where you "force" users to create an account.

    Have you thought about looking for bloggers? This is something we are working on. Eventually I also want to check for some bloggers that I could hire for 3 articles every two weeks or so. It is quite important tho to make sure that you have some high quality articles. I have been checking some...

    Now they can move on looking for a real PR Staff that has a communications background.

    Bueno, that's true. I am not sure what the T&C says. But I do think that @Kier should stand up a bit more towards the things I have said in my previous post. He might not reply at all tho as it wouldn't make him run back to his keyboard like this thread did, but I just hope he takes some things...

    While I agree that the community forum is here to support each other, it’s also the job of the staff members to take over questions that remain unanswered, especially if it’s back from 2019. As several posts here have mentioned that whenever they contact you guys through the ticket system, it’s...

    Just found this thread from 2019: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/is-it-possible-to-authenticate-from-outside.162226/ Potential customer asks a pre-sales question about external authentication. No staff member replied at all to this thread, just XF customers doing the support job for them.

    Ohhhhh the first thing I’d have done if I would have bought the company, is to implement a mandatory “customer communication” workshop for certain staff members. Or probably just hire a digital marketer.

    Is it possible to authenticate from outside?

    And this would have been be a great question for the staff members to solve, instead of the XF customers do the customer support job for them.

    Look. This is a proper communication style. It took several entire thread discussions, but here we are. Proper communication. Look @Brogan, instead of calling a customer publicly a stalker, this is the correct way of dealing with a situation. With these kind of messages we know where the...

    This is one of the things I meant with communication styles. Instead of telling the OP off as stalker, you can also see this data as an opportunity to talk to your other colleagues about what’s really happening here. “hey guys, someone made this post and I think we should take this serious...
