    I was considering IPB for a new site until i discovered these forums. They look amazing, just had a couple questions. I plan to use the forums for a local buy/sell/event posting site.

    1. Can google maps be added for posters to select a general area of where they are at.
    2. Is there an option to allow a post to also be posted to facebook
    3. I see there are a few wordpress matching themes, can wordpress be integrated to pull posts from the forums and post them as news, or is there a simple "home page" portal?

    If you enter your location in your profile, clicking it will bring up Google Maps.

    Only threads can be posted to Facebook, not individual posts. You could probably do it with a mod though.

    There is no official portal but there is an add-on: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/8wayrun-com-xenporta-portal.7586/
    Pulling threads for display on another page is relatively simple with the correct code, a few people have done it a few different ways. Here's one: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/latest-posts-on-your-website.8798/

    IPB can't beat the BroganBot.
