Can I setup a xenforo free landing page with a paid xenforo forum? Basically when the user first arrives to my xenforo forum site he is presented with a free landing page on which he can click a button to subscribe to the forum and pay at the same time through paypal. Or he can choose not to subscribe. Can this be done?

The standard setup would involve the user registering and then purchasing an account upgrade (which would allow them access), so the standard flow doesn't really do what you're looking for. I think there are other "membership software" packages that may allow that flow (separate from XF), though I couldn't recommend a particular one.
Thanks whynot for your reply. Can I set it up so that when the first time the user comes to the forum he will be able to access a free locked posting that tells him the benefits of registering and paying and then when he registers and upgrades with a payment he will see the other threads in the forum?
