    REQUEST: Please add native API support for Mailgun, Sendgrid, etc

    Hello gentlemen, and the great developers of XenForo: Basically many of us have port 25 firewalled - especially those of us stuck... in the cloud. The original reason was spam related, however, I am starting to think that these services want everyone to use their mail platform instead of...

    XF 2.0 Best way to handle CDN configuration in XF2?

    Hello fellow XF2 people, mods, and devs. In the past, for CDN usage, we used something in config.php like: $config['javaScriptUrl'] = ''; $config['externalDataUrl'] = ''; Is this still supported? Clearly not, as data and js no longer...

    You should have Unanswered Threads be filterable

    Much like the option in Nodes to have: Include threads from this forum when users click "New posts" With "Unanswered threads" arguably being just as important for some people, the need to parse out certain forums is pretty important. Just a suggestion.

    Not a bug CTRL-V of images results in error

    Environment is Windows 10 under the latest Chrome. Lets try this on No issue. I was asked to post this here as a bug, but it appears to be something on my forum.

    XF 1.5 Passing ?language= through Google Translate?

    This is an unusual question, as I'm sure it's not normally supported, but I figured I would give the XenForo community a challenge, as if successful, pretty much anyone could use the same method. Before we switched to XenForo, we used a number of archaic plugins and addons to auto-translate...

    Change individual video ownership of a single category

    Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? I imagine it would require a SQL query at this time. Basically, a bunch of videos were imported for another user and placed into a category for him. These number in the hundreds. I'd like to take my name off as uploader and give that user full credit...

    XF 1.4 Universal Analytics User-ID Tracking not working in XenForo?

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I've tried every combination, which way to next Saturday, after adding this on the Google Analytics side. Basically, my google_analytics template is customized this way (yes I'm pushing it out 3 different times to no avail): <script>...

    Are we closer to IE11 support?

    I know IE is not exactly the gold standard in web browsing, but it is the default browser installed in Windows and large corporations still use it to control it with group policy. Will we see support as soon as Windows 8.1 is released or prior to? This could become a major headache if it is not...

    XF 1.2 Built-in cron tasks frozen

    This is an odd problem, but it comes with a number of huge changes to our board. The built-in cron has not been updating since the site was set as down and an enormous number of threads were moved around and prefixed. This change was a major one, and a minor bug in XenForo was identified when...

    XF 1.2 How do I stop an out of control batch thread update from running?

    It apparently was called on too many threads, and after any subsequent batch thread update I do, it goes nuts, attempting again and again, for tens of thousands of threads. As far as I can tell, it never actually does anything, but refresh the page over and over. Other small tasks like moving...

    Implemented By default

    Allow the default user fields for the profile to have permission sets. For example, a common tactic for spammers is to place links in their About Me section and Homepage. Our resolution to this was to create a custom user group require 5-10 posts before these fields could be filled out, and then...

    How justified is it to charge for Listeners (i.e. add-ons)?

    This is not a gripe, it is more or less about something I have noticed. There is a lot of activity in the Resources section and I think it is great. But a lot of people are charging, what I would consider would add-up to a considerable amount of money, for things like social plugins to share a...

    Rich Snippets and HTML5 Schema

    Will future versions of XenForo attempt to use Google's Structured Data format for Rich Snippets via HTML5 schema i.e. This seems to be where web development is going in this area. Are there any suggestions from XenForo employees on how to integrate some of the very basic stuff into the...

    XF 1.2 Ad on first and last post of every page - but if 0 replies, 2 ads appear on same post!

    This code works great, however: <xen:hook name="ad_message_body" /> <xen:if is="!{xen:helper ismemberof, $visitor, 312}"> <xen:if is="({$post.position} % {$xenOptions.messagesPerPage} == 0 AND !{$message.conversation_id})"> <div style="float: right;"> AD_CODE </div> </xen:if> <xen:if...

    Thank you to the developers and this community

    While it has been a tumultous task migrating two established forums into one new domain, and with Google reaching my throat and choking it aimlessly, I greatly appreciate the help and assistance of the staff here at XenForo as well as the contributors and members who have lended a hand in times...

    XF 1.2 Importing vBulletin Blogs into XenForo 1.2

    The 1.2 importer is great, but as far as I can tell, it does not address the blog issue. With a XenForo database already established, and data already imported from vBulletin, what is the best way to import blog entries (potentially into threads?) Thanks.

    XF 1.2 Page Loading Malformed

    We are seeing some weird instances where elements on the page just aren't showing up, and instead, we see the absence of images and formatting. It does not happen all the time, but rather frequently. What could cause this? As a precaution, all cache options have been disabled. Refreshing the...
