Gott dangit! This is precisely the comprehensive practical instruction guidance manual which should bloody well be positioned front and center! I only just stumbled on it after chancing upon a link by Mr Brogan. Apparently it's the only obvious route here, coz I just tried to find this resource from the main page. Buggered if I can find it.😐
And yes. I get this is for XF1. However the specific post with this link states this XF1 'How to' guide also generally applies to XF2.

For real. We, and I mean everyone, needs seriously start workinh together to develop our shared circumstance for the positive.

A lot of the time, it seems tensions are high due to acute frustration en masse. Everything spirals out of control over & over, in toxic cycles.

We need to address this otherwise it'll just continue indefinitely... devolving further each cycle.

My frank recommendation would be to call on any reliable and willing Xenforo Community volunteers who could take this-(& any other similar)-exceptional resources by Mr Brogan-& others, and consolidate the lot.
Of course updating everything too.

Then put this newly updated Xenforo guide manual out where everyone can actually see the blimmen thing.
There's just too many layers upon layers piled up with so much stuff.
I already have a reasonable knowledge of the basic frontend layout/navigation...😂and yet I still can't find jack sh...!

This is a great resource Mr Brogan.
Thank you for your efforts. Some of us genuinely can/& do recognize and appreciate you sir.
This isn't really working for me. It feels almost like I came in halfway through the class. I don't know what it means by 'phrase'. All I want to do is change fonts and backgrounds and it doesn't give me a clear path to do that. I am a beginner to CSS and all other forms of coding. I am finding this more overwhelming than assistive.

This is hugely helpful for first timers that lack any coding or programing experiance and very easy to follow!
very helpful. everyone should read this before customize the forum. need more guide like this, if there's a full template syntax guide would be better.
