    XF 2.1 API: create user

    Hi folks, This is my first attempt at the api. I'm trying to create a user which has an endpoint in the docs. I created a super admin key, and here's my code: $data_string = ['username'=>'zoxoo1', 'email'=>'', 'password'=>'1234567']; $service_url =...

    XF 2.1 Redirect after posting - feature or bug?

    I'm trying to determine if a behavior is a feature or a bug. :) Let's say we have a 4 page thread and a user submits a quote/reply to a message on page 2. Where is the user supposed to land after the reload. Currently, the page refreshes a post or two before the end of the thread, on the last...

    Greetings! We just upgraded to 2.1 and we need to replace an addon that went away with 1.5. What we need is almost identical to this: ...but it's not maintained now and has one key behavior we need to change: Upon marking a...

    XF 2.1 New 2.1 install; 99% of users unable to post [SOLVED]

    This is day 1 of a new 2.1 upgrade from 1.5.1 running on php 7.1. The test site worked perfectly but now, in production, most users are getting an "Oops, something went wrong" error when they try to post anything or send a PM. I have created a new vanilla registered user and tried an old...

    XF 2.1 Question about friendly urls

    I'm in the middle of an upgrade from 1.5 to 2.1. My 1.5 forum used the default url, with "index.php?" in it and I'd like to use friendly urls in m,y 2.1 forum. Does anyone know if the old default urls will still work after that change, or will XF throw a 404 error? Worried about bookmarks...

    Combine multiple forums into one list

    There used to be an add-on in 1.x that would combine threads from multiple forums into one forum list. It's like a custom forum, sort of, that users can configure with the content they want. Users who only want to see content from, say, 3 forums, could configure this to show threads only from...

    XF 1.5 Alternative login form?

    Our forum users are old men, guys in their 60's and 70's who are very sharp mechanically but hopeless digitally. Every couple of days I get complaints from users who can't figure out the login/reg form. I think the confusion comes from the radio button that determines login or registration...

    Add-on Ads inside forum threads

    Is there an add-on that will drop an ad into a thread, in place of a post? Has anyone done this, and do you think it's a good idea/bad idea? Our users get fixated on content and don't click ads on the fringes of the screen. Some ads we want to make sure they see, but I'm ambivalent about...

    XF 1.5 Link to first unread post from Forum List?

    When I click a link to a thread from the Forum List, am I supposed to jump to the first unread post? It seems like it takes me to the first post in the thread every time. Add-on conflict perhaps? Or is this a feature?

    XF 1.5 Correct behavior for Remember Me login option?

    Is the Remember Me login option supposed to keep users logged in across multiple sessions, or simply populate the login form? I have some users reporting they have to login every day. Truly, First World Problems.

    XF 1.5 Sorting posts within a thread

    When viewing /index.php?threads/{thread_title}.{thread_id}/ there a setting or add-on to control the post sort? I have some users who had Vb configured to put the newest reply at the top of the thread. And they're not even Australian. I don't see a mod for this, but I've certainly...

    Successful migration from VB 3.7

    I just wanted to post a big thank you to XenForo and its staff. We had a mid-size vBulletin board, 1.3MM posts, 85,000 users, that was converted from a home-brew forum in 2008 (so it was shakey to begin with) and highly modified. New tables, new fields in VB tables, 6 active sets of...

    XF 1.5 Adding an administrator

    I'm trying to upgrade a user from Registered to Administrator. I have added the user ID to the list of super admins in config.php, changed the permissions to explicit allow, and upgraded their user group to Admin. However, the user is unable to login as an admin. Does the user cache need to...

    Add-on Custom node that consolidates posts from all nodes

    I run a forum for sailboat owners that is segmented by boat brand. We have almost 100 nodes. Some users stay in one node but many other users want an easy way to easy read all of the content. On our VB board we had jury-rigged a forum that listed all posts, from all forums, in a standard...

    MG 1.1 Import from vb 3.7 albums

    I performed a successful import back in August to XFMG 1.0 from vb 3.7 albums, to config and set up my forum. I am now doing the final import before going live and I am getting an Mysqli prepare error: Table 'v_albumupdate' doesn't exist It's correct, the table doesn't exist. Is this...

    XF 1.5 One forum that displays all posts

    My forum is organized by boat brands and there are dozens of them. One of the popular features on my current VB board is a single forum that is configured to show all posts from all forums. Is this mod possible in XF?

    XF 1.5 Template modifications

    I'm sure this has been asked a million times but the only answers I can find are from old versions (<1.3) that don't match current (1.5) controls. I'm having a devil of time getting template modifications to show up. I suspect I need to rebuild the cache but I don't see a specific rebuild...

    MG 1.1 User albums won't load

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question... I converted my VB 3.7 forum to Xenforo and installed XMG 1.1. All the media is there and import seemed to work just fine. When I drill down to a user profile I can see recent uploads under the Postings tab. However, the Media and...

    XF 1.5 Requiring some personal details at registration

    Does anyone know if this is possible with 1.5 out of the box, or if an add-on exists to do it? We run a sailing forum and have found that the very best spam blocker is to ask new users a few questions about their sailboats during registration. That tends to trip up the guys in Bangledesh. Thanks!
