    XF 1.5 Exporting a Thread to DOC

    Look perfect. We are hoping to upgrade to XF 2 very soon - any idea if this will be released for XF 2, or if this functionality is native to XF 2? -S-

    XF 1.5 Exporting a Thread to DOC

    I've been asked to "convert" a 10-message thread into a document (Word, Google Docs, etc.). Is there a better way than cut-and-paste to do this? Thanks. -S-

    V 1.5 - Resolution Alert in Reports

    V 1.5 - Resolution Alert in Reports When a user files a Report, and I fill in something where it says Send Resolution/Rejection alert does what I fill in there go to the person who reported the post, the person who authored the post that was reported, neither, or both? Thank you advance. -S-

    XF 1.5 - Changing Text for ("private")

    If my understanding is correct, the search at the top level of the ACP should find all instance of this word. Many came up related to a bookmarks add-in, but I looked at everything, I think - no hits for this. I went into Styles, and tried to filter items and put in 'private' but nothing. But...

    Programatically Adding Forums

    You could have all discussions for a particular category in a single forum and use the prefix to let the thread creator indicate which state. You could have all discussions related to a particular state in a single forum and use the prefix to let the thread creator indicate which category. I...

    XF 1.5 - Changing Text for ("private")

    When a forum node is configured as a private forum, it says (private) on the main forum menu for unauthorized users. This is by design - we want users to be aware of these areas but only certain people have access to them. I have not been able to find where this expression, (private) is stored...

    Using Email Forwarder for Forum

    When I inherited our XF 1 installation a few years, the forum used forum@<our_domain> as its email. 2 years ago, I asked for access to this account via Google/Gmail to be able to monitor the email traffic in and out. (I asked for this because, to the best of my knowledge, XF doesn't/didn't...

    Syncing a WordPress web site and a XF 2 installation

    Looks promising, and I have already forwarded a link to our CEO and our developer. On the page you gave, there is a button that says View Live Demo but it just takes me to a static web page - be nice to see something moving or at least know what buttons to push. :) Thanks. -S-

    Syncing a WordPress web site and a XF 2 installation

    I am a XF admin and an ex-techie. Brief history: We currently run XF 1.5. Our company began in 2012 with a WP-based web site and their forum software. We switched to XF for our forum in 2015 but continue to use WP for the web site, part of which is blog containing articles that allows for...

    Tool / Feature / Add-On to Spot Same-Post-Across-Multiple-Forums

    A user on our forum recently pointed out that spammers will post exactly the same thing on multiple forums. My user sent me a screen shot of a Google search - it showed this same text, all posted at about the same time, in a dozen or more different forums on different web sites. Interestingly...

    XF 1.5 Moderated Posts Don't Show in New Posts

    I'm not sure what you mean by "auto-moderated" but no, they don't appear to the regular users in any way before they're approved via the moderation queue. The place we notice them is from users who are permanently in moderation - if such a user posts, once the post has been approved, it doesn't...

    XF 1.5 Moderated Posts Don't Show in New Posts

    We can confirm it as comes-and-goes behavior. The reports come from users who are definitely not moderators. For me as mod/admin, everything works as expected. These same users, however, do report that it works as it should sometimes, and then not sometimes. We've noticed that some things...

    XF 1.5 Moderated Posts Don't Show in New Posts

    It would be good to know if it's fixed in XF 2. -S-

    XF 1.5 Codes for Editing a Page in the ACP

    Do you mean this as in, "create a post, view page source, copy and paste, then cancel creating a post?" Thanks. -S-

    XF 1.5 Codes for Editing a Page in the ACP

    Thanks - CSS styling is a totally foreign thing to me, but it sounds like I need to learn. The examples on that page don't indent an entire paragraph - that's what I'm trying to do. Here's a question - is there a WYSIWYG editor in which I could create my web page, and then paste the HTML/CSS...

    XF 1.5 Codes for Editing a Page in the ACP

    I did a search on how to indent something in HTML - it says to use <blockquote> - that doesn't work. That's why I asked. This: https://html.com/paragraphs/ is above my head technically. I am interested in what seems simple enough - questions flush left, answers indented for an FAQ type...

    XF 1.5 Moderated Posts Don't Show in New Posts

    We have a confirmed behavior - if a post goes into the moderation queue, once it's approved, it does not appear in New Posts for our users. This is unexpected and unwanted behavior - is there a workaround or configuration item we can change? Thanks in advance. -S-
