    XF 2.1 Upgrade to 2.1.9, now I get file check errors

    I tried the auto upgrade and couldn't get it to work. I've got a dedicated server and can get my server guy to configure it however it needs to be, but it's largely on me to figure out what needs to be changed and I don't have a clue, so I tried to do the update manually. I used WinSCP to...

    * bump * How should the display condition be set if you want to exclude a single user group? I'd like to display a widget to logged in members, but not guests.

    XF 2.1 Upgrade to 2.1.9, now I get file check errors

    Finally got around to upgrading my forum from XF 2.1.5 or so to 2.1.9. Auto-upgrade didn't work, so I had to do it manually. I logged in to XF customer area, downloaded upgrade package, unzipped it, uploaded files to the server, visited /install folder and clicked button to upgrade. ACP says...

    Anyone have an iframe code to display recent posts/replies on a non XF site?

    XF already creates an RSS feed of latest threads/posts. You just need an RSS reader script to read the feed and display it in your home page ad block. Have a look at CaRP: https://www.geckotribe.com/rss/carp/

    vBulletin 3.8 to XenForo 2 - did you see any SEO improvement?

    I've made the switch recently from vB 3.8 to XF 2.1. It's too early for me to have any meaningful data on search engine positions/traffic. But my userbase is happy with the change and the change allowed me to upgrade to much better hardware with the latest PHP etc. which was a concern.

    XF 2.1 Searching for users by IP address

    I get a lot of spam submissions from the contact page. Once in a while, I spend a few hours going through the spam emails looking up the IP address it was sent from and adding a DENY FROM line in my .htaccess file when it's from a TOR node, server company or from a country that I "don't like"...

    I am FURIOUS and some of you SHOULD BE too!

    FWIW, I use Let's Encrypt SSL certs on my forums. I checked them with the URL listed in the OP and all came back good. I have never had any contact with Norton before. YMMV.

    XF 2.1 tag - replace to lowercase, whitespace with hyphen

    The Content Tagging option in the ACP does have a field for "Tag match regular expression:" which could be used to restrict the allowed characters. I'm not a Regex wizard though, so I can't really give you the proper expression to use.

    XF 2.1 Email users - Successful (26k users) but send out 500?

    Could you explain that in simpler terms for those of us that know nothing about mailservers? I have just recently migrated my vB 3.8 site to XF 2.1 and I wanted to send an email to my members to let them know. So i sent the notice with the XF email feature. ~5,000 emails. I think Yahoo...

    So I just finished migrating my site from vB 3.8 to XF. We went live with the DNS switch yesterday. This morning, I have seven emails from the contact form inviting me to explore a world of sexy photo galleries, russian brides, etc. I have a captcha in place, but apparently humans are...

    htaccess redirect help please

    Never mind, I figured out I could replace the first line like so: RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} p=(news|page\-two|another\-page|etc) and it works. I also added the page identifiers used in that line to the "Disallowed text in user names" name validation section in the ACP. Everything...

    htaccess redirect help please

    I've recently migrated one of my vB 3.8 forums to XF. The XF site went live today. Unfortunately, I've got a small problem that I only noticed now after the site went live. I had several pages on my old vB site which I need to redirect to the new URLs on the XF site. The old URLs were all of...
