    I have researched a coder for doing a multisite CMS with these features. Founded one that give me 2 choices for developing one:
    I'm not a coder or a Xenforo expert and i'm unsure of what is better for my needs...can you give me your opinions about that? @digitalpoint @Stuart Wright

    XenForo addon. Much better in the long run in my opinion.

    I have forgotten to add that (the pro/cons for every choice given by the coder):
    I'm a little unsure because i'm going to invest a lot of money in that...and i don't want to make the wrong choice.

    The front end of our editorial is a Xenforo addon. The CMS back end is external to Xenforo and allows the contributors to enter content into the editorial tables in the Xenforo database.
    We only have the one site that the editorial is used on.

    I would prefer the add-on, because it is easier to use for the rest of our team, while moderating and handling the site.

    Personally, I'd do it as an addon, but that's just because I'm anal and if I make it exactly how I want I don't have to deal with things not working exactly like I want. :)
