    Can I also just say what a pain in the ass it was to break this out of our internal framework and make it an installable thing? lol

    For example before it didn't have the ability to pick Twitter Lists from a drop-down in settings (they were just hard coded)... This whole making things "user friendly" is time consuming. lol

    It's there (and was always). :)

    There's no realistic way around it because of the Twitter API integration for the rotating feeds you can define for each forum.

    Shawn, thanks for the releasing this; I just picked up a branding free copy. :)

    Is it safe to assume from the screen shots that "Premium Members" is a list that you manually maintain on your Twitter account?

    It's automatically maintained by our Premium Members addon (basically adds users and removes them as needed... the addon does a lot of other stuff that is specific to just our site as well), but yes... there is a private Twitter List on my account for premium members that is used for this.

    Is it possible to add extra social share buttons, fx Linkedin?

    It's not in the short-term plans, but giving people the option of a few others like LinkedIn and Pinterest has been in the back of my mind for something down the road.

    Bottom of the icons and right side area?

    It's a bit of a weird situation. This addon utilizes our social buttons system, which is actually something independent (like you can use it on any site): https://tools.digitalpoint.com/social-buttons the link for that only shows on mouseover of the buttons.

    The copyright from the addon itself is the one on the right.

    There isn't a way to suppress the link for the social buttons thing because it's 100% JavaScript based and really there is no way for it to know if it's there because someone put it there themselves or because of this addon.

    If someone wanted to edit the social_bar template to utilize the normal default social buttons (and not use our social buttons) just for the benefit of the rotating Twitter List feeds, of course they could and the link to the social buttons thing wouldn't appear when hovering over them. In fact, that's exactly how we used to do it on our site.

    Ive always relied on internal caching built into the software.. could/would someone point me in the right direction regarding caching server side relating to the requirement of this addon ?

    Do we need to add just front-end or both front-end & back-end to our config.php?

    Sorry, I don't really know anything about this.

    Yeah... if you want to use file system as your cache (the simplest way), this is what you would use:
    PHP:
    $config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
    $config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
    $config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'xf_';
    $config['cache']['backend'] = 'File';
    You can also use memory-based systems like memcached, APC, XCache, etc. as your backend if you have them available on your server.

    So just enter that in my config & I'm good?

    I also just bought branding removal. I've been waiting for this for a while now, and I'm really happy that you released it :D
