    Still no way to delete a user and all their content.

    Another feature people have been asking for, for nearly 6 years and XF hasn't implemented it. Why are we not able to delete a user and all their content on one simple page? My understanding is I have to go through and spam clean them on some completely separate interface just to take care of...

    XF 2.2 No "BANNED" / STRIKETHROUGH on users who aren't permanently banned.

    So I gave a user a 1 week temporary limitation on their account. Technically its a 1 week ban, but you don't want to display "BANNED" under the username on every one of their posts, with a big STRIKETHROUGH on their username. This implies they've been booted from the forums forever. In...

    XF 2.2 Administrative UserGroup has basic capabilities turned off. This is not intuitive.

    Steps: Log in as Admin > Go to Admin control panel Users > Create User Enter Username Enter Fake / placeholder Email address Enter Password User State: Valid User Group: Administrative Log out and back in as the new user. Can't see the forums. Whats the logic here? The...

    Duplicate No Pagination Numbers At the top on Mobile

    Why was this decision made to not include page numbers at the top under the title on mobile? @Kier

    Not planned Poor handling of the Like / Dislike option.

    I just finally upgraded to 2.0 and subsequently 2.2 Dislike should not be hidden inside the "Sprite" section. Both should be visible on front end as a default feature - with the option to enable or disable one or both. Putting it into the sprite area hides the "Dislike" option from view...

    Significant design downgrade from XF1 to XF2

    EDIT: I realize my examples are of the UIX Style. But everything I am writing here relates to XF2 as a software. UIX and all the other Styles had to kill their designs and downgrade because of the XF2 limitations / requirements. ----------------------- Xenforo 2 design seems like a...

    XF 1.5 Spam Log Missing on User Approvals

    I have stop forum spam enabled and I have self-verification enabled for new registrants, but I am now seeing users that are getting stopped during registration show up in my approval list - and they have no "reason" listed. Example below showing one with a reason and another (which I've never...

    XF 1.5 Banner Ad Spot Acting Strangely

    I remember an advertising banner spot that appeared only under the first message/post in a thread. I believe it was Ad_message_below But now when I put ad code there, it puts a banner under every single message on the page. (side note, I don't know who thought this would be desirable to...

    XF 1.5 Elastic Search Stops working after server migration

    I don't know what that IP address is, because it was not my IP on the old server I dont think. But we just did a Plesk migration from one box to a new box and elastic search stopped working. Possible fix?

    XF 1.5 Badges without using Trophy system

    I'd like to show a badge for members who get a certain number of likes. Unfortunately the "Trophy" system seems to be all or nothing. I have opted to go with user Ladder based on "Message Count". It doesn't make logical sense to me to identify users' seniority and experience other than by...

    XF 1.5 Facebook Integration forces option for Login With Facebook too?

    "Login with Facebook" has now appeared on my forum login screen and I do not want it there. I set up "Facebook integration" for other reasons. Namely because I wanted Facebook "Sharing" to work properly. The snippet text, title, and main image were not being pulled in correctly until I set...

    XF 1.5 Facebook Sharing - og:image og:description etc...

    I'm no expert but I know that in WordPress the Yoast SEO plugin helps ensure that each of your pages has tags in the code that make the page "Social Shareable". This means when you paste a URL into a Facebook post, Facebook will accurately "fetch" the main image for that page, the Title for...

    XenForo Is So Superior to vBulletin its ridiculous....

    Figured I'd throw this into the Pre-Sales forum for anyone who is debating whether to switch. vBulletin user for 10 years. Two sites. 60,000+ members. 700,000 posts, etc. XenForo versus vBulletin: Google SEO Optimization Switched to XenForo, was able to clean up all our thin content...

    XF 1.5 Block Notices - Duration Setting?

    Lots of display options for the Floating Notices but the Block Notices don't seem to have any basic controls on their behavior. Specifically they flip between notices way too fast, and there doesn't seem to be an admin setting for defining delay between "slides". Is this something I'm going...

    Your take on the method used for this Addon?

    Addon Goal: To make the signatures of 1 usergroup visible to "Guests/Not Registered". Global setting is to hide all signatures from "Guests". ------------------------ Method used: Developer decided to enable signatures to be viewable by all Guests, and then created a conditional to check...

    Lack of interest Renaming a Thread Should Not Change its URL

    Unless there's no way in XF to separate the thread title from the URL. I do like having my URLS equivalent to thread titles as a default setting - for the first creation of the thread. But if you need to rename a thread, you dont want to create an entirely new 301 redirect that has to go to a...

    XF 1.5 XenForo Ad Unit Placements - Dimentions / Sizes?

    We're trying to get DFP set up with ad units but our marketing team needs to know the actual sizes in these spots: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/visual-list-of-ad-locations.1383/ Any documentation on this anywhere? I seem to remember that the dimensions *might* have been in the...

    XF 1.5 IPs Shared by Banned Users - Why Expire Manual Approval?

    Trying to understand the logic of this setting. I realize once in a million years, two unrelated users could possibly have the same IP address. But that is so rare that I would guess it literally never happens on the same website. So why would you ever want to disable manual approval of...

    XF 1.5 Post Approval in Specific Sub-forum

    How can I set a specific sub-node to require approval from a specific moderator for all new posts by the "Registered" group? This permission option is not inside the sub-node "Permissions" for "Registered". Only "Can post" and "Cant post" Thanks.

    XF 1.5 Disable requirement for 2 step verification

    1) I registered a new user account and was a little freaked out to see that the entire forum was "hidden" from view for that new user, pending their clicking the activation link in their email. I do not want to do this and I don't know where this setting is. Where can I undo this for a new...
