I am currently building a development community that is in its early stages however there is a need to have a subscription based system. With the PayPal option already integrated this has made things a lot easier however there are a few things that I am unsure of:
- Is there an option to allow for advertisements on the forums or in between posts? If not is it easy enough to create a plugin that can allow for this?
- Are there any hooks that allow for a custom website to use the member data? For instance allowing the user to sign up or sign in via the website, and also show and hide things depending on the usergroup permissions.
- If I were to find a CMS instead of building it myself, are there any recommendations that seamlessly integrate with Xenforo by using its user database instead of its own? Generally I'm not interested in Portals unless it's highly customisable.
If I was to let the license run out and I happened to have some add-ons, could I only renew for the forum and select certain add-ons yet still download the last paid for version of the add-on I no longer renewed?
Finally if Xenforo v2, by chance, happened to be released shortly after I purchased the current version, would I be able to install v2 and have the license include v2 or would I have to purchase a separate license?
