    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...

    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"...

    Contact form should respect Banned Emails list

    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

    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...

    XF 2.1 Registration domain blocking?

    On my vB 3.8 forums, I could enter text that the forum would use to block new user registrations. Things like @126.com to block all registrations from users with emails from that domain. I'm searching around the XF ACP, but not seeing a similar function. Does it exist in XF?

    XF 2.1 nodes and navigation questions

    Under Public Navigation in the ACP, I can click add navigation and define a basic link to domain.com/tags/ but what would I need to put in the display condition field to ensure the link is only shown to user groups that have permission to use the search function? When I'm creating a page node...

    XF 2.1 User upgrades post import

    I ran a test import from vB 3.8 to a clean install of XF 2.1. I see that the User Upgrades were imported. I see a list of active user upgrades (payment profile field shows N/A). Does anyone know if the associated PayPal subscriptions will expire at the given date assuming I disable my...

    XF 2.1 User group promotions / permissions

    Say I create a "paid" user group and create a user upgrade that promotes paid members to the "paid" user group. The paid user group has expanded signature permissions including images, links, extra length, etc. A member pays for the promoted account and edits his/her signature to take...

    XF 2.1 What do these User Group Permissions do?

    There a few User Group Permission settings that are unclear to me. I tried searching around, but didn't have much luck finding an explanation for them. Can you help? General permissions -> Maximum mention alerts (what does the number limit here do exactly?) Conversation moderator permissions...

    XF 2.1 After import, latest/recent threads search is empty

    I imported my vB 3.8 forum data into clean XF install. Import worked fine. I can browse threads, etc. Widgets that should show latest or recent threads and the search function itself do not return any results. I tried rebuilding the search index and it is still the same result. How can I...

    XF 2.1 PHP callback widget integrated with CaRP RSS reader

    XF 2.1 Integrating Revive ad manager with XenForo advertisement system

    I'm new to XenForo - it's installed, but I'm just starting to go through the configuration options. In the past, I ran vB 3.x and added template code to pull ads from OpenX/OpenAds which I was also hosting. XenForo 2.1 has an advertising system built in, but it appears to take HTML code with...

    importing from vb 3.8 with php 7.3

    So I'm still running a forum on vb 3.8 on an old server running php 5.x. I've got a new server in the rack running php 7.3 and vb 3.8 is choking on it (keep getting a message about forumpath$ that persists even if I set the path in the config file). Anyway, I am looking to move the forum over...
