    XF 2.1 When searching for users in Admin CP, anyway to find users who have entered anything into a custom field?

    Looking for some way to list all users who have entered anything at all into a specific custom field... I tried searching with an * or a ? or % but none of those work. I searched but could only find answers concerning searching via the front end (which is possible with a paid add-on.) Thanks.

    The Orville

    Is anyone else loving this show? It is better than any Trek besides DS9 and TOS imo. Even more amazing is that (besides TOS) almost every Trek has had a mediocre or awful first season, the first season of The Orville was brilliant. We're in the middle of season 2 now and without giving spoilers...

    XF 2.1 Any examples of editing the PHP output buffer in XF 2.x?

    Curious if anyone knows of any examples where the PHP Output Buffer is edited in Xenforo 2,x? This would be akin to the replacement_vars hook in vBulletin 3.x or 4.x or the Replacement Variable Manager in vBulletin styling tools. I did some Googling but not finding anything relevant. Thanks.

    XF 2.1 Anyway to change "Like" text to "Rate" when viewing posts?

    So some of my users, especially on mobile,. are hesitant to "hover" over "Like" when they want to dislike or leave something other than a "Like." I can understand this being confusing and thought I might change the "Like" text to say "Rate" or something else instead, something to clue in it...

    XF 2.1 Anyway to import from VB 3.8 Albums into Xenforo Media Gallery 2.x?

    I've done this import on XF 1.x many times but not seeing any import scripts on 2.x... am I missing something obvious or is there no way left to import VB 3.8 / 4.x albums into the official Media Gallery?

    Anyway to make a redirect script for VBSEO Album URLs?

    VBSEO Album URLs are like this: There is absolutely no 'id' number in the URL. I was thinking initially I could make a redirect script similar to @Jake Bunce 's script for member profiles. My problem though is I don't...

    Have to give Kudos to Microsoft...

    So as they announced last month Microsoft took away the "pay-wall" that was requiring Xbox owners to pay $50+ a year to access Xbox Live Gold to be able to use Netflix, Hulu, and other video services that have charges of their own. Why should someone who just wants to access netflix have to pay...

    How To Setup "Master Forums" AKA "All Topic"

    I have been receiving multiple requests on how to make "Master Forums" on XenForo. I have a vB mod that basically allows you to show the threads from multiple forums in a "Master" Forum. When you click on a thread title it will take you to the thread in its native forum, so you may want to set...

    Facebook Like button working even without Facebook App ID?

    So i never bothered to put in a Facebook App ID into my Admin CP options and to my surprise the "Facebook Like" button still appeared in a thread... to my bigger surprise it actually worked when I clicked on it? It said (My Name) likes this. (Unlike). So I clicked "unlike" and it went away...

    Not a bug  Member Statistics - Awaiting Approval

    I don't know if this is a bug or "feature" but in the Admin CP under "Member Statistics" I was being shown "Awaiting Approval" is "0" but I had 3 users waiting to get their emails confirmed. I guess that isn't technically "Awaiting Approval" but I thought they would show up there. I had no way...

    An interesting [forum] feature...

    I got hit with this yesterday... Someone starts a thread with this title then says something like: "Did you know the forum will auto censor your password if you try to post it? *******" And inevitably people fall for it and post their passwords. :oops:

    Lack of interest [Suggestion] Tool tip (title) for 'New Posts' Image

    Since there is no legend (nor do I want one) the little blue dot denoting new posts should really have a title attribute so that mousing over the image tells us what it means (Thread has New Posts) or such.
