Create New Add-On?

    I noticed that in the demo version, the Create Add-On button is not visible in the Admin Control Panel >List Add-Ons page. Can I create custom Add-Ons with only the base XenForo license ($140.00) or do I also need to purchase any Extras in order to write my own Add-ons? Thank you.

    Some features are enabled when you have debug enabled - and I seriously doubt that the Demo has debug enabled. AFAIK no extras are needed to create add-ons.

    If you are talking about complex add-ons, then you will need to be familiar with php, interfacing php with mysql, etc.

    You can create it with the base license - debug mode needs to be enabled to view that button, and it isn't enabled in the demo.

    You get access to an entirely new tab in the AdminCP...

    Yes, I'm aware of that... It's how I created some specific instances for styling additions on my forums. What was throwing me was the "button" reference. I know it displays a new nav tab. ;)

    Yeah, I was going to expand on that but the editor started bugging out...

    (The keyboard was going away as soon as it appeared when clicking the editor...)

    Real add-on development wouldn't be very demonstrable since you would need to be able to upload files. The only thing I can think of that would work on the demo site had it been available is creating an addon that is essentially just a template modification, can throw some options up and use them with a template. But overall the majority of work done requires ftp access as well.
