    Not a bug Missing links to stock bbcodes until something else clicked

    AdminCP >> Content >> BBcodes Initially I see only this: Stock BBcodes is missing (the category title isn't clickable). Also Fonts is missing. If I click on something else, like Custom BB codes, then I can see (and optionally edit) the stock BBcodes as well as Fonts:

    XF 2.1 Public Navigation Extra Attributes

    I was playing around with this setting in AdminCP >> Setup >> Public navigation >> Extra attributes but I'm not sure how this is supposed to work. For example, I tried this, assuming they were CSS or link attributes: but it doesn't seem to do anything. What is this and how is it used?

    XF 2.1 Mass emails

    When you send out a mass email to a large number of members, does Xenforo stagger them in some way, queuing them and sending them in batches, or does it send them all out at the same time?

    XF 2.1 enableAddOnArchiveInstaller in config.php

    Just to confirm... the following is only applicable for upgrading addons, correct? It is not required to use upgrade of Xenforo itself from the control panel? And if you do not use the upgrade from the control panel feature, that line should either not exist or be disabled in config.php? Just...

    Duplicate Add jump menu to bottom of thread

    One other feature I miss in vBulletin is the ability to jump from a drop-down at the bottom of a thread directly to another node / forum. In Xenforo, you first need to go to the main forum index page and then locate your forum from there.

    Add formatting to text mode (aka BBCode mode)

    One thing I do miss about vBulletin is the ability to use bold, italics, add links, etc., when creating a post in text mode / BBCode mode. As it is, you have plain text mode only. Requesting that this be added in a future version.

    Heads up on what looks like a registration bot coming out of the Philippines

    This morning, I started to get a large number of email-not-confirmed registrations from the Philippines, coming in at a rate suggesting a bot and a weak DDoS attack. This was only on one of the forums I manage, a relatively small / low activity one. I use Snog's Country Registration Ban addon...

    XF 2.1 SQL help to delete warning points prior to a specified date

    On a vBulletin to XF conversion (where some of the vB tables may have been corrupted), a residual issue is that there are old unexpired vBulletin warning points left over. As a result, if some members get a 1-point warning via XF, it puts them over the threshold and temporarily bans them. I...

    XF 2.1 Trying to change size of usergroup banners

    These are using standard definitions but I'm trying to override width of the banner and center them. I tried adding this to extra.less for the style but it doesn't work: /* reduce width and center usergroup banners */ .userBanner .userBanner .message-userBanner { width: 50% !important...

    XF 2.1 What controls display of secondary navigation bar?

    On most XF2 forums, including this one, I see this for the active tab: However, on one I manage, the secondary nav row is not displayed. Instead there is a drop down: I want to change that dropdown to the more common secondary navigation bar. Where is this set?

    XF 2.1 Posts in moderation queue are displayed in what's new list

    I've had reports recently (since the update to 2.1.4 but it may well have been an issue in 2.1.3 as well) that members will see moderated posts listed as new posts but of course if they follow the link they don't see anything new. Shouldn't posts in moderation be excluded until they are approved?

    XF 2.1 [Solved] Usergroups and subgroups after import

    Just finished an import from vBulletin 4 and I can't remember how I did this before. There are several special usergroups. I want to convert these to Registered with the special groups as secondary. How do I do this?

    XF 2.1 Reduce horizontal space between action buttons below post

    As the title says, I want to decrease the amount of horizontal space between the action buttons below the post so they don't drop to a second line. I assume this can be done in extra.less but I'm not sure how. With current spacing/margins:

    XF 2.1 Collapse white space when Adsense not displayed?

    I could swear I read a thread recently here about collapsing white space when Google AdSense ads are not displayed (for any reason - I'm NOT asking why they aren't displayed) but I can't find it and I don't know if the issue was ever successfully resolved. The goal is to collapse the (sometimes...

    Require reason when an addon is deleted?

    No doubt this has been requested before but I'm short on time these days and I keep trying to remember to do this. I'd like to see a requirement for a reason to be posted when an addon is deleted, even if it's something generic. If you're using an addon and it suddenly shows up here on...

    XF 2.1 SOLVED: White pages after upgrading from PHP 7.1.30 to 7.2.x or 7.3.x

    As the title says, when I upgrade from PHP 7.1.30 to either 7.2.x or 7.3.x using WHM/cPanel, I just get blank white pages on both the forum page and the admin page. When I revert back to 7.1.30, everything works again. What would cause this?
