Over the last few months since switching my forums to XenForo I have been building the addon I've always wanted since I started selling my products online - a way to let my customers verify themselves to my support forums. In years of selling products online I have been manually promoting new...
CinVin Home is a quick and easy way to have a XenForo "Home" page for widgets. There are no manual edits required, automatically creates a "Home" navigation menu, pre-installs the same XenForo sidebar widgets displayed on the Forum home page, and has multiple spots for ads and widgets! Having a...
In the manual it says the HTML widget won’t fetch any data. What is the best work-around?
I have a WordPress/XenForo bridge and I’m trying to put an HTML widget from the WordPress part of the site onto the forum widget. As of now, simply copy/pasting the HTML code results in styling issues...
Adding a couple widgets, and I need to have them display for certain situations/users.
The first one I want to display only to visitors. Got that one handled using this:
Now, the second one I need to display only if someone IS a member of one specific user group AND NOT a...
Add staff bar links to visitor panel with some extra features. The default staff bar is removed, because all admin tools are now in account visitor panel (with optional Staff tab for widgets) or in dedicated Admin tab in account visitor panel. See more below.
Just like in Nodes, a simple ability to Sort widgets by drag & drop (left) or simple ability to manually sorting (right) on the main widgets page would be ideal. Right now we have to go into each widget to change their positioning.
I want to show Share this Page widget (for example) right at the top on all pages. Currently, only forum list location is available to show this widget at the top:
Forum list: Above nodes
Forum list: Below nodes
I would love to have the following locations for...
I'm trying to apply a widget to forum_list_above_nodes in a Template HTML.
<xf:h1 hidden="true" />
<xf:widget key="custom_new_threads" position="forum_list_above_nodes"/>
Unfortunately if I try to save the template:
Line 3: Unknown position 'forum_list_above_nodes'. Supported...
Can't seen to enter a display order for the Public: Sidebar bottom widget. Won't allow me to enter a number and +/- doesn't do anything. Actually, seems like all of the positions on the right column have the same issue.
Is it possible to apply a style or something to make a thread sidebar widget always-visible?
As it is, on a long thread the sidebar is only visible when you scroll to the very top. When you click an unread post and are taken to the bottom of the thread, you won't see the sidebar widget unless...
With XF2 it's really simple to add a Page as the homepage and populate it with widgets to create a "portal" page.
As a few people have asked how to do it I thought I'd post this quick guide.
Go to admin.php?nodes/ and click Add a Node
Select Page as the node type:
Set up the Page node and...
I have created a page node and set the default index page to it.
Now I have added sidebar code in "Page Options" and also included some template to show but all widgets are not showing here :(
I have used following code:
<xen:include template="sidebar_visitor_panel" />...
Please consider to extend the XF2 widget system with widget pages: Pages that have widgets only.
We can then add whatever widget we like to the page and set up custom pages.
This would allow us to create a widget page to use as a home page portal.
It would also allow us to create various custom...
If all page elements / blocks would be widgets, then we would be able to order all page elements in any position we like. Not just sidebar blocks, but any page element.
This will allow us to place any block anywhere.
We could reorder page elements to our liking and easily create unique pages...
Please consider to add functionality for:
multiple widgets per row (side by side blocks)
tabbed widgets (multiple widgets in the same location by the use of tabs)
As bd widget framework has these function, a lot of xenforo sites already use this in production.
