Since the styles showcase is in a customers area, how are people that may be interested in xenforo supposed to determine if there are decent pre-made themes out there before purchase?
The attachment system doesn't differentiate attachment types, making it impossible to allow images, but denying archives currently.I've seen those thanks. Most of the ones I'd like to look at don't seem to have an offsite demo.
The permission set up just seems counterproductive to sales IMO. I can perhaps understand the not allowing non licensed members to be able to download valuable attachments in the support area. But can someone explain why the third party styles section is in the licensed members area?
How is being able to view third party style image attachments something only licensed members should be able to see? If I'm looking to see if xenforo has styles I might be interested in, wouldn't you want to be showing off the wide array of styles available for the platform?
I guess I'm just not understanding.
Oh, I'm highly surprised it isn't ready than .I requested this a few days ago...
If there's one you'd like to see, ask one of the licensed members or developers to send you screenshots. I'm sure we wouldn't mind helping you out a little bit to see.This is pretty much exactly why I haven't purchased a Xenforo license yet. I've been trying to figure out the capabilities of some of the add-ons, but since I can't even view the screenshots I can't tell if they are going to meet my needs or not.
I have to agree also, I was pretty dismayed at how some forums are set-up here for guest viewing before I purchased a license. I wasn't interested in the mods or skins either, I still use neither and run a stock board. So it had nothing to do with that in my view about it all. I just thought it seemed a little daft really and very counter productive. But as mentioned above, there is no permissions based on Zip, Images e.t.c. So it's view all or none.I totally agree with Qwest. When I was a non-customer I found the setup was counterproductive because unless the theme/add-on author linked to a demo, you could not view the screen shots etc.
I believe part if it is that there are free add-ons, but they're meant to be free to XenForo customers, not everyone. In this case "everyone" is a XenForo customer or not–so they are able to download it or not.What's wrong with allowing anyone to download and view the free addons/mods? Do the addons contain code that is part of XenForo?
The way I see it (from my limited perspective) it would be better to allow anyone and everyone access to the mods AND screenshots (atleast while the system is limited) vs frustrate new customers like myself who want more detail about the addons before purchase.
I guess I'm wondering what kind of problems come from allowing anyone to access all the addons and how those problems balance against lost sales. Just my two cents, not trying to step on any feet here.
