    Hi
    I am looking at purchasing a forum that will be able to do the following, can someone clarify if all of these requirements can be fullfilled with XenForo?
    • Needs to work on mobile - able to browse, post
    • small screen support if requesting desktop site
    • Tapatalk support (for mobile) - all engines below supported - notify users on mobile
    • multilanguage support - dynamic translation plugin required
    • scalable to 100k+ users
    • distinguish between Users and Partners (reseller/distributors) and Staff
    • search box and advanced search
    • rich media support (with size limit)
    • trending articles
    • polls
    • moderation for certain sections if required
    • ability to “mention” @support ... to get the attention of support - or similar
    • hash support for #topics (should we define per topic), twitter, facebook feeds?
    • RSS, share for each article
    • ability to follow certain ‘topics’ to get emails / messaged when content added
    • ? Can messaging method be selected by user? For example, can we allow them to choose RSS, Twitter, FB, email as their default or only method?
    • access to database: add new users, read users out, etc. - required for E-Commerce integration
    Thank you
    Pat

    • Needs to work on mobile - able to browse, post
    Works fine on mobile
    • small screen support if requesting desktop site
    How small? It shows up well on all modern sizes
    • Tapatalk support (for mobile) - all engines below supported - notify users on mobile
    There is a tapatalk addon
    • multilanguage support - dynamic translation plugin required
    Multiple languages supported. Dynamic translation addon not currently available, but I guess it wouldn't be too hard to implement one.
    • scalable to 100k+ users
    Easily
    • distinguish between Users and Partners (reseller/distributors) and Staff
    Easily done with usergroups and promotions
    • search box and advanced search
    As standard...
    • rich media support (with size limit)
    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/bb-code-media-improvements-in-xenforo-1-1.19545/
    • trending articles
    Not strictly available...
    • polls
    As standard
    • moderation for certain sections if required
    Standard
    • ability to “mention” @support ... to get the attention of support - or similar
    Done via quotes. I think theres an @ addon also available
    • hash support for #topics (should we define per topic), twitter, facebook feeds?
    No Hash support
    • RSS, share for each article
    Doable via forum RSS feeds
    • ability to follow certain ‘topics’ to get emails / messaged when content added
    As standard
    • ? Can messaging method be selected by user? For example, can we allow them to choose RSS, Twitter, FB, email as their default or only method?
    Users can define email or subscribe via RSS.
    • access to database: add new users, read users out, etc. - required for E-Commerce integration
    This isn't a forum function.. rather just reading / writing data from MySQL?

    Short answer, YES, XenForo can do all the above.

    How would you envision this working ?

    Google translation?


    What does the addon do?

    The idea is to eventually allow users who purchase from our e-commerce site a product, they get automatically registered to our forum so they would share authentication,
    Thanks

    If the user has the option to link their adccount to twitter this would be the use for postings.

    Try the Watch Link in the top right hand corner of any thread.
    You can select between on site Alerts and emails.
    Not sure that is available.
    Sounds easy to make ... someone might be doing it already.
    I was thinking you were thinking along these lines:
