    Localisation questions

    Hi guys, It's not a xenforo question, but I'd like some advice as most of you guys know more geekery than I can comprehend ;) I'm in the planning stages of working on my own photography portfolio website and I'm living in Japan, so that throws up a few issues. I'm planning to have the site...

    Hi guys, I'm having some issues with the forums sending out emails. It has worked in the past, now it's just stopped working (maybe after upgrading to 1.2). For the email settings I am using is the Default PHP method not the SMTP option. xenforo is not logging the emails in the error logs...

    Firewall rules for a webserver

    I've been setting up my firewall rules but it's mainly to block out obvious bad folk that I don't want visiting (like Baidu constantly having 60 spiders crawling throughout the day..anyway). I'm just wondering what do most people do for protecting a webserver using firewalls? I'm using...

    Why don't attached images show on facebook share?

    It's just something bugging me a little and I don't know if it's a facebook thing or a Xenforo thing but why don't the embedded images show on the facebook share/link thingy? Sometimes I want to promote a user's image but all I see is the Xenforo logo. But on Google+ it works:

    Learning programming

    Hi guys, I'm looking for some advice. I want to learn programming but I have no idea where to start. I did my a-level in computer programming, but it was 10 years ago and I feel that Pascal (which I used at the time) isn't exactly helpful right now. Since I'm a british guy living in Japan, the...

    Hi guys, I'm wondering. Is there any way to have the feeder to do the usual job of pulling the RSS feed but instead of the forum link jumping to the post I would like it to jump to the actual post on the RSS feed. Or Have the feeder work as normal but on the post it posts the URL of the page...

    Disabling ssh keys

    Hi guys, I'm asking this here as I tend to get very little answers over at lindode. Earlier this week I was trying to set up SSH keys on my server and the damn thing crashed (PC) as I was doing it - now I can't gain access through SSH anywhere except though Lish (Linode's SSH system). I was...

    Your site and Facebook

    Seeing that we are have to be facebooking stuff these days and I have done the fan page website thingy and I have to admit, I have no idea what to put on it - ok, I have it set up to pull the data off my RSS feeds to auto post the data. I post the odd youtube vid but apart from that what the...

    Forum not email users

    Hey guys, second 'Help me!!' question of the week. Since I moved over to linode servers a week or so ago the board won't e-mail any of the users, both for subscribed topics and personal messages. I'm using the default setting here as I was before and it worked fine, there are no logs...

    Uploader no workie

    Hey guys, I moved over to Linode from my shared hosting on the weekend, only one problem with xenforo is my uploader has gone kaput. With Flash enabled, it goes to the 100% but I can't actually put them in the post and on the non-flash version, it just kicks out this error. Any ideas? The...

    Thinking of moving to Linode

    Hey guys, I've been thinking of moving my site over to Linode after dealing with Hostmonster's constant downtime, slowness and database issues. So my question is: Am I going to be able to deal with an unmanaged VPS server without any experience? Obviously I know my way around making a basic...

    My google ad issues

    hey guys, On my last site, one of the guys that owned the site with me was a jackass and decided to up the click rate on google ads (yes, I know...before you say it, i know, I know!!!) without me knowing. Google banned the account (quite rightly so), we lost a good $150 that I had genuinely...

    This is bit of a random one but here goes: I do a bi-monthly poll that allows our users to choose their favourite community photo. Unfortuantly, it got popular and now I need more than the standard 10 poll options. Is there any way to add more polls answers? At the moment it looks like the...
