I have 450 nodes. In Xenforo there is no easy way to display these well on forum index. Most nodes are hidden under drop downs. This is not good UXD.
There is no easy way to use custom node icons.
There is no setting to display moderators.
It would be very beneficial if there would be settings to allow us to define the layout of forum index and subforum layout.
I am sure that if Kier and Mike would re-evaluate the possibilities with a forum index layout manager, then the result would be stunning and a major improvement for XenForo.
