    Finding Advertisers

    Honestly, I am not strongly motivated to work hard to find advertisers. My forums turn a profit, though not huge. I have other ways I make money. That being said I do like money. :) I have my own ad system where people can buy ads 125x125 on the side, or a header image on the top (same method...

    Locating Low Quality Links

    Really surprised I missed it, but I have a user on my Salsa Forums back in 2008 who posted 128 times, and at the bottom of every post is link to a site about drugs, sex, etc... real low quality stuff. Now I am deleting 1 by 1. :( How might I find more like this. I think mostly I'm clean, but...

    Time before can post a link

    So I already had a limit of 20 posts before a link can be posted, so of course someone last night posted 27 times and then added links to their pharmacy site. I upped the limit to 60. Would be nice if I could also limit new users like this: 1. 50 posts minimum AND 2. Member for 6 months Any ideas?

    XF 2.1 Removing Old Spam User Accounts

    I have two forums that both have a problem with having an excess number of accounts that were registered in the past mostly for the purpose of spam.

    MG 2.1 Schema

    I have a photo gallery that's quite old and I want to convert it to xenforo. Would it be possible for me to take a look at the database schema for the media gallery, so I can discuss with a developer before I purchase? I just want to make sure it's going to work. Alternately could I have a...

    XF 2.1 Google Lighthouse and PWA

    I thought I would revisit this now that 2.1 is out. I have PHP 7.3 running smoothly (awesome!), and use Guest Caching (pages load MUCH faster, super awesome!). So I'm wondering if there is anything stopping Xenforo from using service worker, splash screen, etc such that I can pass the PWA test...

    XF 2.1 New Features / Performance

    So one thing that excited me is the Caching for Guests, as it sounds like this will reduce the use of Server Memory (yes?). Is this something I need to turn on? or is it something already taken care of because I upgraded? And just in terms of turning on things, any chance I could get some...

    XF 2.0 Upgrade System Login

    It seems that sometimes when I click on a thread that maybe doesn’t exist because there is a problem with the URL or similar, I get a page like this. I’m not sure what this is but I think it would be best to make it go away. Any suggestions?

    I know there are some old threads here about this, but I wasn't sure the state of things now. Any recommendation on whether or not I should do these things? Is there a guide to best practices? (or hopefully the code). I am using Apache on CentOS (WHM)

    XF 2.0 Banner Ads

    I have recently upgraded to 2.0 for two forums but I haven't gone live yet because I have a banner at the top, and some 125x125 on the side (or bottom if mobile). I could change things a bit, but what would you suggest so that I can make the needed modifications and continue showing the ads or...
