    Hacking vs Abandoning XF

    There's a lot of things I like about XF, but there's also quite a few things that annoy me. So the question that's always on my mind is whether I should invest the time and energy to try and resolve these issues, or whether I should abandon XF and go back to something like Drupal, which allows...

    XF 2.2 Robots disguised as Guests

    In the Members Online I see quite a few Guests that in fact are bots. I know/suspect this because when I look up their IP address their host name contains bot (eg Is there any way we can exclude these from the Guests count and put them in the Robots count where...

    Overwrite Node URL

    Would it be possible to add the ability to specify the URL of a node? I know we can use Routes to overwrite the URL of a Node, but.. 1. ..that requires an extra step, for the admin to go to the Routes area in the admin and then copy/type in the old URL etc..

    For two days now I have been seeing the /login/keep-alive url being accessed about every 50 minutes (plus or minus a few seconds) from the same IP address that I am pretty sure does not belong to a member (it belongs to my ISP). Can someone please enlighten me why this could be, and what the...

    XF 2.2 Print & "Click to expand.."

    Is there a way to automatically expand all bockquotes when printing a post/article? It makes no sense to print the "Click to expand.." message instead of the whole blockquote. I tried clicking the paper printout but nothing happens.. :rolleyes:

    XF 2.2 Permissions per thread or thread prefix

    I want VIP members to be able to comment on articles (or on certain other threads), but everyone else can only view these threads, even though they can post on all other threads. These articles (or special threads) can be spread out over different forums. I can see two ways that this could be...

    XF 2.2 Display a node as a widget

    Is it possible to display a node as a widget? I would like to add some nicely formatted text to a home/portal page, but instead of entering this as html directly in the page or a widget (which is rather awkward), I would like to enter the text into a post/node so that I can use the wysiwyg...
