    XF 1.3 Thread tools > edit thread > lock?

    Every time I use Thread Tools > Edit Thread and make a change to the thread title, the topic always changes from open to locked. Note that the "open" check box always has a tick before the editing is performed. The tick disappears during the edit and I have to go back into Thread Tools > Edit...

    XF 1.3 Tweety flew away?

    The tweet button does not seem very reliable. I have "enable tweet button" checked in the ACP (nothing entered for twitter account information, I only want the basic button). On this support forum the button bird image is missing. On my forum the "Tweet" text shows during page loading but...

    XF 1.3 Prevent operation of the navigation hidden function (subtabs)

    I'm referring to the function that triggers the responsive navigation subtabs. This function hides the subtabs and replaces them with an ellipsis. The ellipsis will open into a menu of the hidden subtabs. There is a method of modifying the java script discussed in this topic...

    XF 1.3 Rejected User

    I have a user that says his auto correct changed information when he registered. I rejected (and deleted) him due to the bad info. He emailed to say that when he tried to re-register he got a message to contact the admin. Is there some sort of built-in "reject list" that prevents a repeat...

    XF 1.3 File upload - empty file browser window

    I have attachments set up to allow GPS files (gpx,gdb etc.) to be uploaded. I can attach them no problem. One user states that when he tries, his file browser window is empty when he goes to find the file. I've checked permissions and he should be able to do this. What is the consequence of a...

    XF 1.3 Move .node .nodeLastPost .lastThreadTitle using CSS

    I have a responsive layout that removes .node .nodeLastPost .lastThreadMeta (display: none). At the same time I'd like to move .node .nodeLastPost .lastThreadTitle below .node .nodeText .nodeTitle as shown above. .node .nodeStats has already been removed at a wider responsive trigger point...

    XF 1.3 Font madness

    Yes it's driving me nuts. I've always used IE for forum viewing (all forums). It's been easiest on the eyes compared to other browsers. I find the fonts in FFox and Chrome just aren't as good. I need advise on why IE shows well and the others don't. Screen grabs, all of the same page, just...

    XF 1.3 Admin access regarding facebook

    I was adding responsive code to the various BB code media sites when I received an error message. FORBIDDEN: You don't have permission to access /admin.php on this server. This occurs only for the facebook BB code media site and happens when I try to use the "save BB code media site"...

    He is using W7 SP1 and his work only allows IE and they are on IE11. His comment: I just came on and checked two other threads, then this one. After a sec I noticed it wasn't scrolling down and the spinning thing was at the tab like it was still loading. Then I comes up and says it's stopped...

    html5 video

    I'm looking for a simple method for my users to upload .mov attachments and then play them. This would be for short video clips from their cell phones and restricted to our small paid members group. I have adequate storage space on a shared server. I have seen a working method, but it would...

    XF 1.3 Allow only specifc bots?

    Based on experiences with other forum software I'm wondering what to do about bots. Other software has a bot list already incorporated. XF does not appear to have this. I believe bots should be treated differently than guests. Should specific desired bots have a bot usergroup with permissions...

    XF 1.3 Inherit permissions

    Example: general category with several nodes in the category If there are permissions set for the category do the nodes automatically inherit the catergory permissions (during node creation or during category permissions update)? If not, is there a way to copy the category permissions to the...

    XF 1.3 Problems with user group import from phpBB3

    All user groups came in with the import except for my "paid members". I don't have any idea what would cause this. From what I have read, it looks like XF only has 4 groups by default (unregistered, registered, moderating and administrative). It also appers that XF puts every user in the...

    XF 1.3 Video extensions

    https://xenforo.com/community/threads/uploading-videos.25528/#post-309438 Has anything changed that would allow video uploads? If the attachment size was large enough with .mov allowed, could the video upload as a file?

    XF 1.3 User Groups

    I'm having some trouble finding user group information with XF. XF>List User Groups shows the list of groups. Selecting one basically goes to a permission page. I am expecting a summary with total users in that group and a link to see the list of users. How do I obtain detailed user group info?

    XF 1.3 Rebuilding caches

    After importing, rebuilding of the search index is required. On the "rebuild caches" pages there are multiple types of rebuilds available. I've done the rebuild search index. Should the other rebuilds be done too, or are they not required because the import process has already done this?
