    Could anyone please help me out I'm trying to be able to create my own Xenforo add-ons and I have done quite a bit of research in the matter to learn html but I can't find any decent tutorials to create Xenforo add-ons could anyone please point me to a video tutorial or something? There was a Xenforo tutorial series I was recently watching but the uploader uploaded it in 360p meaning it was hard to see the text and hard to understand what he was doing so finding a series in 720p+ would me amazing

    My suggestion is that if you have Specific Plans for a certain type of addon .... start a thread with your goals .... and questions .... etc. You might get some specific help that might tell you the things you need to learn for your specific goals.

    I'm not sure if it will help, but it might help to start small...

    So, do you have anything specific in mind for your first add-on? There's quite a lot of different aspects of XenForo and to learn all about extending a controller when all you need to do is insert some HTML code using a template hook wouldn't be an effective use of your time.

    So, what do you have in mind?

    Based on your answer I can point you in the right direction of an appropriate tutorial :)

    EDIT: Yeah what DD just said :)

    Well I had many ideas for add-ons my main one was to create a shop tab on the homepage that works like the original Xenforo account upgrades but with extra features for example adding a quantity on how many items you wish to sell and when the quantity runs out you can't buy anymore until it's restocked and a ladder system for example I add a account upgrade to the shop called "Premium" and I add another account upgrade called "Premium+" and you have to buy Premium before you can purchase Premium+. They would just be a few ideas for my shop add-on I have more but it was just a example.

    Another add-on idea I had was to remove trophy's and replace it with a leveling system for example everyone starts of at level 1 and to reach level 2 you must gain 10 exp and you gain 1 exp per message and 5 exp per like (As in when a post of yours is liked, Not when you like someone else's post)

    There might be something like that already.

    Is this sort of what you want ?

    Idk I would probably prefer to make them myself anyway. Make them more unique and what not but I have been looking through a lot of Xenforo add-ons and not seen one like that, whats it called?

    Oh bdbanking. Yes I did have that but I thought that gave you virtual money for making posts and getting likes. I never knew you could use it as a leveling system the only reason I ever downloaded it was to work with Iceshop but I've removed all my add-ons now temporarily

    Trophies can be made to work as Levels ... You just have to assign each successive trophy one point.

    Yes I know I used that at first but you can only get a trophy one time so if you wanted to make is so people got 1 point per message you would have to make 100 trophies for 100 points
