    Do you offer the option for a guest to start a thread and/or reply to an existing thread WITHOUT signing up, but rather by only providing name and e-mail address?

    Yes, guest posting exists within XenForo.

    Great! Where do I set it up?

    It is permission based.

    Alright, I see it.
    Is there a way to compel a guest to provide their e-mail address?

    By asking in the licensed owner thread for support and not the Pre Sales Questions forum?
    Of course, if you don't have a valid license (I have no way of knowing about that) then you won't be able to post there.

    If you are playing with the Demo then that may be different kettle of fish, but generally support is not provided in an open area like this.

    Yes, I'm evaluating a Demo, wanting to make sure xenForo has the functionality I need before I buy.

    Is it possible to modify the template so that an email address field is added to the guest posting page as a required field?

    It would require an addon to work :)

    I'm seeing that many features can only be accomplished via add-ons.

    Does the use of many add-ons affect performance?

    That depends on the add-on, what it does and how well it has been written.

    One poorly written add-on can be worse than 50 well coded add-ons.

    I've got 68 on one of my sites and it doesn't seem to effect it - but I don't have a bunch of users on it either.
