    Staying sane? - 3rd week of stay-at-home order for us.

    Since I work as a programmer during the day and have been on my machine quite a bit at night, I really needed to do something different. I went back to an old hobby of small engine repair. (I know, way off topic) Our mail lady asked if she could drop off a chain saw that her husband was not...

    XF 2.0 - Love the ability to add tabs across the top

    Just found out about the ability to set up tabs across the top and am reorganizing my new site some. So instead of one long scrolling list of Forums, I can add tabs and move some of the long forum list into topical tabs. I started with "Stories". Very nice. Thanks! You do it here...

    I've got 2 ways to organize an event. Is there a third?

    I'm just getting started and was asked by the owner to prepare for the opening event in May with a focus on the forum. Reference is in my signature. First node is one way and is pretty spread out and I don't really like it. Second node is more compact at the top level and opens up if you're...

    I'm considering using a domain name like "". The owner of the forum likes it and the usual .com version is parked with no response to my request to buy. It's parked with HostGator who has been less than clear about what to do about my picking it up. Current reg expires at the...

    BOTS hitting a forum bad

    This is on a forum I happen to be a member of, but I'm a customer of xf too. So I'm interested in how to deal with this for my own future reference. Here's what we're seeing every morning until the admin cleans it up. It's a daily issue. It's not in version 2; copyright is 2016. How can...
