Okay, first snag... There's gotta be a way to upload more than one file at once, right? I couldn't find it so I started to upload the files individually and then noticed there was folder, with folders inside of them, would I Have to create those folders myself in cPanel and then upload accordingly? Seems like there's gotta be a way to drag and drop, or something.
I use Flashfxp to upload all my files!

FileZilla

I simply highlight everything I want in the left, right click, select upload .... And let it do its thing.

I don't trust cPanel to unzip the folder. I've seen that fail before and I've watched files become corrupt that way (even on some well respected providers).

From the SSH prompt is normally my 2nd alternative to unzipping it.

I have used the cPanel in-built File Manager to upload and un-zip the XenForo archives for some time now and it never corrupted anything. (y)

Wow, you guys, have been even more impressed with Xenforo since installing! Well worth the money! Like I had said earlier, I'm very much new to a lot of this stuff, and was able to breeze through installion with all your help, and the user interface and everything once I did that has been absolutely smooth and easy to understand. Very pleased :)

One thing I've had a little bit of a rough time understanding is the Resource Manager. I'm not sure now that I even need it, haha.

Yeah, I found that, just not exactly sure what a 'resource' is. It seems to me like a way for people to sell stuff on your forum?

A resource can be anything you want it to be: pdf file, Excel spreadsheet, image, text document, set of instructions, etc.

Resources Manager is a sort of a Downloads Manager if you look at it that way. An Resource can be anything, but generally it is either an file (or several files in one archive) or an file-less resource (an article for instance). In the post I linked to above it refers to the Resources section here (which 14DH01 linked to).

Does anyone have any add-ons they'd suggest for sure having? I feel like a kid in a candy store looking at all these resources, haha.

Xenmoods- by dismounted
Postratings - by luke foreman
Showcase - by bobster65
Node As Tabs - Most useful add-on on xenforo, that is housed by xenforo and ever will be contained by xenforo.
DC Smiley Manager - A must if you plan on adding lots of smilies. It supports Categories both backend and frontend and much more.

Those are a few must haves if your looking at add-ons for your members which they would appreciated. Oh, and welcome to xenforo. :)
