    XF 1.5 Spam Log Missing on User Approvals

    I have stop forum spam enabled and I have self-verification enabled for new registrants, but I am now seeing users that are getting stopped during registration show up in my approval list - and they have no "reason" listed. Example below showing one with a reason and another (which I've never...

    XF 1.5 Banner Ad Spot Acting Strangely

    I remember an advertising banner spot that appeared only under the first message/post in a thread. I believe it was Ad_message_below But now when I put ad code there, it puts a banner under every single message on the page. (side note, I don't know who thought this would be desirable to...

    XF 1.5 Elastic Search Stops working after server migration

    I don't know what that IP address is, because it was not my IP on the old server I dont think. But we just did a Plesk migration from one box to a new box and elastic search stopped working. Possible fix?

    XF 1.5 Badges without using Trophy system

    I'd like to show a badge for members who get a certain number of likes. Unfortunately the "Trophy" system seems to be all or nothing. I have opted to go with user Ladder based on "Message Count". It doesn't make logical sense to me to identify users' seniority and experience other than by...

    XF 1.5 Facebook Integration forces option for Login With Facebook too?

    @Mike - still a little confused - even if my meta tags were in the wrong location, you would still want "OG" tags on the page, and I thought adding facebook ID / app is the only way to do that if you want to communicate OG info to Facebook (boy this is confusing). Not true?

    XF 1.5 Facebook Integration forces option for Login With Facebook too?

    "Login with Facebook" has now appeared on my forum login screen and I do not want it there. I set up "Facebook integration" for other reasons. Namely because I wanted Facebook "Sharing" to work properly. The snippet text, title, and main image were not being pulled in correctly until I set...

    XF 1.5 Facebook Sharing - og:image og:description etc...

    Okay found the answer: 1) Go to Admin > Options > Facebook integration 2) Go here: type in your FB url and get your FB ID number. This goes in the "Facebook Page Admins" field in the XF Admin. 3) Under the field titled "Facebook Application ID" click on the text...

    XF 1.5 How to set Open Graph Tags for each thread ?

    @Emre Y - this doesn't address his question. He's not talking about a title meta tag. Nor even basic meta tags. He's asking about open graph tags. (OG).

    XF 1.5 Facebook Sharing - og:image og:description etc...

    I'm no expert but I know that in WordPress the Yoast SEO plugin helps ensure that each of your pages has tags in the code that make the page "Social Shareable". This means when you paste a URL into a Facebook post, Facebook will accurately "fetch" the main image for that page, the Title for...

    XF 1.5 Block Notices - Duration Setting?

    @Brogan - perfect thank you. Theres literally no way I would've found that, as all the settings for the "Floating" notice are on the "List Notices" page itself. This is the second option: Block Notice. And none of its settings are on this page.

    XF 1.5 Block Notices - Duration Setting?

    Lots of display options for the Floating Notices but the Block Notices don't seem to have any basic controls on their behavior. Specifically they flip between notices way too fast, and there doesn't seem to be an admin setting for defining delay between "slides". Is this something I'm going...

    Lack of interest Renaming a Thread Should Not Change its URL

    Thanks everyone @Mr Lucky @rainmotorsports @Aayush Decided to get some facts, and it turns out the news is better than I could've imagined. Well maybe. 301's no longer adversely affect Page Rank. I don't know if that's the same as Link Juice though. I am still scratching my head because...

    Lack of interest Renaming a Thread Should Not Change its URL

    @rainmotorsports - Thanks for you reply. Super interesting to learn about the ID, etc. I didn't know about that. Unfortunately, the fact that there is a 301 redirect there is exactly what I was talking about. It's not really that Google sucks at its job. Its just a universally-known...

    Lack of interest Renaming a Thread Should Not Change its URL

    Unless there's no way in XF to separate the thread title from the URL. I do like having my URLS equivalent to thread titles as a default setting - for the first creation of the thread. But if you need to rename a thread, you dont want to create an entirely new 301 redirect that has to go to a...

    XF 1.5 Members online now

    @Brogan - I don't want Google indexing user profiles, and I see no reason to show the entire member list to search engines or snoopers. But I would like to show how many people are online, and i'm fine if usernames are listed there. How can I accomplish this for unregistered/guest...
