    Please support me to choose a VPS package

    But you don't buy VPS services based on processor time, you buy them based on RAM allocation. The only time I've ever been processor-limited was because something wasn't working correctly. It's similar to the reason people are paying extra for SSDs.

    Please support me to choose a VPS package

    Visitors per day is a meaningless statistic. If you get 1200 users/day, but they each only load two pages before going away, you can run that on a $15/mo shared host. If those same 1200 users are each posting 5x/day, looking at a couple dozen pages, and uploading a bunch of photos and videos...

    Can't get to /account/avatar with SEO turned on

    I'd agree, but I don't see anything in the config files that should be tripping it up. I'll post them after I get home tonight. Maybe y'all will see something that I'm overlooking. I'll try to remember to look at the nginx error logs, too. There might be some clues in there.

    Can't get to /account/avatar with SEO turned on

    Has anyone else run into this since I posted it years ago? For some reason, when I moved Xenforo to the web root, the problem went away. That was probably three or four years ago. I recently built a brand new server running nginx and php-fpm, migrated the forum to the new box, and... the...

    XF 1.5 Welcome to XenForo 1.5 / Assorted Improvements

    This tripped me up, too. Useful stuff like this is turned off by default, but "thread tagging" is turned on.

    [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO [Paid]

    This sounds similar to my issue. There's still a bug here. Edit: I have not yet upgraded to 1.6. Confirmed that this was fixed in version 1.6. Thanks @Jaxel !

    [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO [Paid]

    It's showing the full content of the articles on the article page. I have experimented with the new break text field, but it just adds this text to the bottom of the article. I previously used prebreak BB codes to do this, and it looks like it's ignoring those as well. In short, I have no way...

    [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO [Paid]

    Doesn't this address all these "the articles page doesn't do exactly what I want it to do" use cases? Meanwhile, @Jaxel any help here?

    [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO [Paid]

    Am I the only one that is having trouble with both the prebreak tags and the break text? It's ignoring prebreak BB codes, and the break text field from the article promotion page just gets inserted at the bottom of the article.

    XF 1.4 Redirects and route filters

    I added this after the first two rewrite rules to capture all of the other random rewrites (index.php?misc/contact/, etc) RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(.*)?$ [NC] RewriteRule ^forum/index\.php$ %1? [NC,R=302,L]

    XF 1.4 Redirects and route filters

    After 30 minutes of google-fu, I am now a regex master. Here's what I found out: mod_rewrite doesn't process anything after a question mark in the URL. So if you have mysite.com/forum/index.php?threads/this-is-my-thread.20 it will ignore all the important stuff. You have to have a rewrite...

    If you can't tell, I don't know Jack about reg expressions.

    XF 1.4 Redirects and route filters

    Maybe, but I need to match the middle part with index.php?forums. I'm using "forum" for a route.

    XF 1.4 Redirects and route filters

    I recently moved the Xenforo installation from a /forum subdirectory into /. I have started to use route filters to pick up some of the old links, but I'm having problems with one specific example. If the old link went to www.site.com/forum/index.php?forums/$ How do I get that to rewrite to...

    XF 1.4 How to do local backup of huge forum

    That sounds like a job better suited to something like Percona's Xtrabackup. Use that to create the backup with no downtime, then copy the backup and any related partial/delta backups to a remote location.

    It hides essential information from visitors. That seems like a massive UI design issue.

    It's not a binary choice. You can turn off responsive styling, which is what we ended up doing. Yeah, I tried that. It ended in heartache and tears. Who has time for that nonsense? Is there a "how to fix the default responsive layout" tutorial? If not, there should be.

    The responsive style means you don't have to zoom and pan, but you gain that ability at the expense of not being able to see a lot of other useful information. That's why they don't like it. Go to the "Have You Seen?" forum on your phone. Tell me who was the last person to reply to the "More...

    Our users despised the responsive style. Love tapatalk. But from an administration standpoint, tapatalk is terrible. Be prepared to deal with all sorts of bugs and user issues that are actually tapatalk issues.
