perfect. Also one last thing i forgot to mention, can the sidebar be removed from the index page? I tried on firebug and it seemed fairly easy on it. I'll be modding it a lot so I do not need the sidebar.
XF is amazingly flexible to customise to get exactly what you want so you'll have fun. Much faster and easier than anything else I've done online. Brogan is one of the resident giants who constantly helps with how to stuff but there are others - Brogan is the fastest though.
ps I am not a gushy fan, there are a few bits I'd like developed which I have critiqued; but none are primary. They come from the kind of greed for perfection that a really top software stimulates.
Personally I'm a web developer and a webmaster of all, I had my doubts about xenforo but the minute I started using it on some live site I felt the need to purchase it. I bought my license yesterday and now i'm very happy with it.
The only thing I find weird about Xenforo is it has ajax everywhere except the registration page where it is actually needed more. Like username availability, etc. Or am I missing something here?
