    XF 1.5 Permission issues with private nodes

    update: consider this resolved. I did more digging and found that the parent parent forum had some bogus permissions on there (from VB 3 import) and had some random revokes for posting new threads and liking content. I set the perms back to inherit for all usergroups on that node and it's fixed...

    XF 1.5 Permission issues with private nodes

    No problem :) Mike, any ideas on how this phantom "Site Moderation" value has been set? Also, I got confirmation that we used the built-in XF importer (no plugins/etc) thanks again!

    XF 1.5 Permission issues with private nodes

    Hmm, if that's true, do you know where this mysterious moderation - registered comes from? I checked the 'moderators' nav in the user area but didn't see anything that stood out, and I made sure this group weren't explicitly set as moderators to cross that one off. I don't see anything in the...

    XF 1.5 Permission issues with private nodes

    Pretty sure we just used the built-in XF one (no extra plugins, etc). Finding that info out to make sure but there will be a delay. Just ran the analyzer, which came back interestingly: "manga full moderators" is the usergroup I've been talking about (has perms set to inherit, except "view...

    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?

    Does anyone have ideas on this? Also, should I have put this question in a different section? Given the amount of add-on creators there are, I'm assuming there's a canonical way to do this - I'm not looking for a step by step walkthrough, just hopefully a place to start/section of the manual to...

    Make it possible to "spam clean" a member from the ACP

    Thanks very much for that tip! Liking now / will do that in the future instead

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

    Great, thanks for that. I'll take a look in the requests section and open a new one if it doesn't exist. Really appreciate your swift help and replies!

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

    Yes!!! Thank you, so easy! While you're here, is there a way that a user can override this value? I've been wondering if users can choose to totally ignore certain forums or subforums, for example (or, if they can totally ignore certain threads on that level - meaning they are totally hidden...

    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

    Ah! Imagemagick indeed wasn't set as the default, thanks so much for that tip (I never ran into that setting as we don't allow attachments - bit of a weird place for the image processing setting to live) Works perfectly now, thank you again!

    Not planned Allow option for not collapsing the breadcrumbs

    Huh, interesting - that's good to know that it's an issue on our end and I really appreciate the info. We have a totally merged system and have XF in our 'shell', per se, but are trying to modify XF as little as possible to avoid such conflicts. Will look into it, thank you!

    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)

    Alas, had hoped indeed that JS wasn't involved. Do you know if there's a canonical best way to make JS changes? We've been using an add-on for basic template replacement (for small code chunks), and have our own CSS to override certain things, but I'm still not sure of the best way to deal with...
