    XF 2.2 How to hide a forum from all search results

    Good suggestion but unfortunately it doesn't work. I still want guests to be able to view the discussions in this forum and members to post in them. By making the forum private it is indeed excluded from search results, but by explicitly giving Guest and Registered users the permissions they...

    XF 2.2 How to hide a forum from all search results

    I believe this applies only to external search engines, not to the internal search function.

    XF 2.2 How to hide a forum from all search results

    I would like a certain forum to be excluded from all search result. I don't want to this to be an option that the user can turn on/off, I don't want to present the user with a selection of forums to include/exclude, I just want to force this forum to be always excluded from all search results...

    Hacking vs Abandoning XF

    With that kind of budget, maybe a custom Drupal site would have been a better option, no?

    Hacking vs Abandoning XF

    What you described as "reverse-engineering other addons" I tried to describe as "hacking." That's been my experience as well, the documentation is only a starting point, something to whet your appetite. After that you basically have to follow some unconventional ways to educate and help yourself.

    Hacking vs Abandoning XF

    Both. I need a CMS for publishing articles and a forum for discussing these articles. Both need to be seamlessly integrated. XF is trying to accommodate people needing a CMS with their Article type thread, and Drupal is trying to accommodate people needing a forum with their Forum extension...

    Hacking vs Abandoning XF

    There's a lot of things I like about XF, but there's also quite a few things that annoy me. So the question that's always on my mind is whether I should invest the time and energy to try and resolve these issues, or whether I should abandon XF and go back to something like Drupal, which allows...

    XF 2.2 Robots disguised as Guests

    I guess you were thinking of this one? https://xenforo.com/community/resources/known-bots.6489/ I just tried it out but it's missing quite a few bots. Maybe there's another/better AddOn?

    XF 2.2 Robots disguised as Guests

    In the Members Online I see quite a few Guests that in fact are bots. I know/suspect this because when I look up their IP address their host name contains bot (eg 17-58-99-196.applebot.apple.com). Is there any way we can exclude these from the Guests count and put them in the Robots count where...

    Use semantic paragraph <p> tags in post content instead of line breaks <br> (Accessibility, Semantics, Bug Fixing, Styling, SEO?)

    How about this? Seems to work fine for me. It even comes with a money back guarantee :)

    Use semantic paragraph <p> tags in post content instead of line breaks <br> (Accessibility, Semantics, Bug Fixing, Styling, SEO?)

    Here's how I solved this issue by overwriting some of the core code, which is not ideal but is still better than waiting for a better solution (which may never happen). In the src/XF/BbCode/Renderer/Html.php file change the filterFinalOutput function from to It seems to work fine for me so...

    Overwrite Node URL

    Would it be possible to add the ability to specify the URL of a node? I know we can use Routes to overwrite the URL of a Node, but.. 1. ..that requires an extra step, for the admin to go to the Routes area in the admin and then copy/type in the old URL etc.. It would be much easier if it could...

    XF 2.2 /login/keep-alive being accessed every 50 minutes?

    For two days now I have been seeing the /login/keep-alive url being accessed about every 50 minutes (plus or minus a few seconds) from the same IP address that I am pretty sure does not belong to a member (it belongs to my ISP). Can someone please enlighten me why this could be, and what the...

    XF 2.2 BB Code for brandnewtube

    I'm trying to setup a BB Code for brandnewtube.com videos. I managed to extra the {id}, but when I try to show the embedded video with this HTML: .. the browser reports the following error message.. .. where <url> is the url I'm trying to display. Any ideas how to solve this?
