    XF 1.5 Permission issues with private nodes

    So, I've read multiple helpful guides on permissions, as well as the official XF docs, and I feel/felt like I finally understood how to do things. But still having sketchy results getting a moderator group to see a private subforum or use functionality. If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong, I'd...

    Best canonical place to put custom functions/logic?

    Sorry in advance if this is answered somewhere else or if it's a dumb question, didn't find anything in initial scans. We'd like to add some custom functionality for things like what avatar is used in thread view. Specifically, we'd like to output a few canonical images instead of the avatars...

    XF 1.5 Best way to update core JS files?

    Hi all, Because of a bad experience with PHPBB and how hard it was to upgrade the software with updates installed, I've been wary about making many changes to the built-in XF product. We have a fully developed main site, plus XF. Since we want them to look like one offering, we inevitably have...

    XF 1.5 Possible to hide certain subforum threads from 'new posts' view?

    Did a few searches and couldn't find anything definitive - if there's a known solution I'd appreciate a link :) My forum is often overrun with 'game' type threads (replies with one word answers, no inherent value per se). A big problem is that the 'new posts' sidebar widget, which is imo one of...

    XF 1.5 Animated gifs not animating with some sizes

    We recently migrated to XF, so I apologize if this is an easy admin setting or something I'm unaware of. We're noticing that animated gifs are only animating at some sizes - here's some text from the user that investigated this: Is this by design? Is there a way to make it so all of the sizes...

    Not planned Allow option for not collapsing the breadcrumbs

    Since this isn't easily editable: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/is-it-possible-to-make-the-breadcrumbs-always-visible-no-collapsing.117066/ Posting it here as a feature request. In my forum, there are few forum/subforum levels, and it looks terrible having something like "Forums > ... >...

    Lack of interest User ability to mark forums 'read' based on session

    Found this, and saw it's not actually supported in XF: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/automatically-mark-all-forums-as-read-after-each-session.114026/ After migrating to XF a few days ago from VB, this has been one of the biggest complaints from our userbase - indeed, I've been running...

    XF 1.5 Is it possible to make the breadcrumbs always visible? (no collapsing)

    Thoroughly searched and couldn't find anything. I'm looking for a way to remove the auto collapse functionality for the middle items in the breadcrumbs list (so, basically, they're all, always visible. No need to click the dots to expand) Any admin panel tips or customization ideas would be...

    XF 1.2 Import a ton of spam/outdated users, or clean up first?

    I have a very large vbulletin forum that's been steadily accumulating a crazy amount of spammers. While I've been blocked a ton of ranges/etc they just keep coming. Looking forward to a better situation here with Xenforo. I want to migrate as soon as possible, but the database size is already...

    Thinking of moving big site from vbulletin - some questions

    Hi all, it's another one of these posts ;) I run a big anime site that has two components: the main site, and a forum. Back in the day I used to use phpBB, migrating to vbulletin many years ago because I was sick of how painful upgrades were with phpBB (given I have so much custom code). The...
