    MacOS, Ubuntu or Windows?

    I run Ubuntu on my personal/work system. I run a lot of VMs and QEMU+KVM is the best VM solution I've used, plus it supports hardware passthrough so I can run a Windows or macOS VM with an actual GPU attached - giving near native performance. Beyond that I've spent a lot of time with all three...

    XF 2.0 Strange issue with template for custom alert

    Edit: Nervermind... I have fixed it. I didn't realize there was a difference between the default XF style and "Master" style. Creating the template in the Master style worked. Hi, Since upgrading to 2.0.10 I am having a strange issue with a custom alert I created. It loads up a custom...

    Wow IPS 4.2

    what are your gripes with the XF2 code quality? It's much better than XF1 in that regard I'd say. I have some internal addons that took me months to develop with XF1, that I rewrote in weeks for XF2. It was much easier to get started. Hopefully they will be sharing more details on future...

    XF 2.0 Conflicts with using XenForo 2.0 in Symfony app

    Hi, My app is built on Symfony and I'm trying to include XF as a service. This worked fine in 1.5, but because 2.0 uses some Symfony components, it seems the vendor libraries in 2.0 are overriding the ones already loaded by Symfony itself. This is causing errors like: An exception occurred...

    Gamer Profiles -

    Ah, we have an additional card type for registered members only that can show data from all three platforms. For example - It could be added like the others if a field for your Exophase username was added (Steve, just let me know via PM if it's something you want to add and I can give you...

    Better security - no more nulled xenforo's out there :)

    Regardless of the piracy aspect, not knowing to what extent the code has been tampered with is reason enough not to use a nulled copy of XF. Someone could easily disable the file checks and plant a backdoor to gain access to your server and database. I'm sure this has been done with other...

    Please add bitcoin as a payment option for xenforo & xenforo addons

    If it's so untraceable then why was a DEA and Secret Service agent that were working on the Silk Road case caught for stealing Bitcoins? Everything in Bitcoin is stored on a...

    Check your Elastic Search installation - AVForums was hacked Saturday 7th March

    Bingo. Anyone that got hit by this means their security was flawed to begin with. First thing to do when setting up a server is block all ports and then only open those that require public access. Leaving services exposed that don't need to be is really dangerous.

    Lack of interest Time to nofollow copyright link?

    What is Google going to do when majority of links on the web are nofollow? I've seen so much confusion over their recommendations, that some sites are starting to nofollow all links, even editorial ones. As far as footer links: I thought they made some algorithm changes to automatically devalue...

    XenForo 2.0 Discussion

    PHP upgrades haven't given me much grief since 5.3 or so, in fact I have sites running some old code that I haven't changed since 5.0 actually and it runs without issue on 5.6. Chances are you can probably update to 5.6 with minimal effort.

    Using add-ons on non-XF page?

    Figured it out earlier today. You need to add these two lines after initializing XF, then add-ons will be accessible: $dependencies = new XenForo_Dependencies_Public(); $dependencies->preLoadData();

    Using add-ons on non-XF page?

    Is there anything special I need to do to access add-ons outside of XF? I've initialized the XF environment, but none of my add-ons are accessible through the models I'm extending. It appears the add-ons aren't loaded at all, not even the LoadClassModel is called. The add-ons work fine on actual...

    SSL on Login/Registration Only?

    Nope, as far as I know this would require an add-on as the cookies are marked secure only when logging in from HTTPS (to prevent them being read on an HTTP connection).

    Any forums using https?

    I'd caution moving to https if you rely on ads to support your site. If using something like AdSense, moving your site to https limits the pool of advertisers to those that have SSL support. A lot do support SSL now, but many still don't. Depending on the site it could considerably affect earnings.
