Andy is my favourite module developer for XenForo. All of his resources are the best! :) Happy New Year, Andrew!
Andy is fantastic guy. He is kind and provides great resources that are maintained and supported, and free. He is my favorite XenForo developer without any doubt. I love how this resource works.
Very good and really help the community. Much easier to find info on the forum. I think that should be added option to add a question in case you can not find.
Yet another small but really useful add-on from AndyB. Using them can really help users enjoy the time that they spend in forum.
Many thanks to Andy for creating this for one of my installations. He worked very closely with me and helped me come up with ideas to make things nice and simple. We managed to mimic Apples "Ask A Question" using this awesome add-on, MANY MANY thanks go out to Andy - who still continues to check back on the forum and offer up ideas for our community....
