    Question on thread prefixes

    Thanks Chris.

    Question on thread prefixes

    Would we be able to have prefixes that are simple titles rather than filters or worded differently can they be static rather than clickable?

    BB Code for Facebook posts

    I'm looking for a way to embed Facebook posts into the forum. I see an easy way to do Facebook videos or pictures but not posts. I tried creating a custom BB Media Code Site but I would need to reference two parts of the URL rather than just one. For example the post below is a typical Facebook...

    Question on friendly URLs

    Ride, we actually use HTTPS on all areas of our sites so you're saying that will prevent those URLs from being shared with their IT people?

    Question on friendly URLs

    That's what I suggested to our IT guys. Wasn't sure if it was possible. It's silly that we even have to worry about this but so many of these people are working on their company's system and it doesn't take a lot cause them trouble.

    Question on friendly URLs

    Yeah unfortunately we want the URL to contain those words for search and SEO purposes. I guess it will come down to how many people it affects and it that's worth us losing those benefits.

    Question on friendly URLs

    But then we would lose the benefit of the friendly URLs, correct?

    Question on friendly URLs

    Some of our forums are a little wild and the language used for the subject line can be a problem if it's used in the friendly URLs. Is this something anyone else has dealt with and how did you approach the problem. We definitely want to go with the full friendly URLs but our users that are use...

    Twitter timeline embed

    Is it possible to embed a user's Twitter timeline rather than just a specific tweet? We would like to have a pinned post at the top of the board that has our timeline updated automatically.

    Moving to Xenforo from thread view forum

    My sites are part of a large network that is moving to Xenforo and the network would have all of the licensing info. I'm hoping I can get access to that so I can keep up on the latest with Xen. I would imagine our move to Xenforo will be good for all of us as we bring nearly 200 sites with...

    Moving to Xenforo from thread view forum

    What's so crazy about this move for me is my thread view users look at this completely different from you and I and they believe it's topic view that is slower and causes them to "work" more for the info. It's a difficult logic to follow. There are many reasons we did thread view with the...

    Moving to Xenforo from thread view forum

    Exactly. Xenforo is amazing in so many ways but for older folks it's like night and day. A young computer engineer told me that everyone knows that the three lines is for a menu and is known by everyone. I just laughed, my people will have no clue what that means. Should be an interesting week...

    Moving to Xenforo from thread view forum

    Lol. I knew everyone would think I was crazy when I asked that question but it really is an issue for me because I've been online so long. I'm not aware of an older forum on the internet today and I helped to work on the very first forum software that was used. Additionally I run a subscription...

    Moving to Xenforo from thread view forum

    I should have explained that better. I was curious if anyone could comment on how their users reacted when they went from a forum that offered a threaded view and topic view to only topic view. My users know it's coming and they're not happy. My question was more about how users adjusted...

    I appreciate the attention but what exactly is happening with this posts getting over 1000 views within two hours? Lol

    Moving to Xenforo from thread view forum

    In the next 72 hours we'll be moving from a board format that has a high number of old school thread format users. Many of my users have been with me for the better part of two decades and they are very upset about losing the ability to view the forums in thread view. Has anyone else been...
