    I need to show all nodes in a page node. Then i will link all entries to create new thread in that forum.

    Which is the best way to do this preserving permissions?

    Node Tree -> Node -> Page Options -> List Sibling Nodes/List Child Nodes

    Oh wait, you want to create URL's to all forums on a single page?
    You will just have to create the HTML code and add it to the page.

    You can try wrapping specific URLs in user group conditionals, to show/hide each one to specific groups.

    Or, if you're proficient with PHP, you can do a PHP callback.

    That's not exactly i need. I need to show all nodes, not only List Sibling Nodes. Something like forum's list in 'fast navigation link' but chanching their destination link.

    You can try copying the code for the quick navigation menu and amend it to add a post thread link.

    You can get all Forums with this code snippet
        public static function getAllNodesByType($type 'Forum'$ignoreNestedSetOrdering false$listView false)
    /** @var $nodeModel XenForo_Model_Node */
    $nodeModel self::getNodeModel();

    $nodes $nodeModel->getAllNodes($ignoreNestedSetOrdering$listView);
            foreach (
    $nodes AS $node) {
                if (
    $node['node_type_id'] != $type) {

    ok. So the steps are:

    1. create a new class with a static method
    2. create a template
    3. do a php callback

    where have i to create the new class and how xenforo knows where is it?

    Custom things like a php callback are .. custom, so they require you to build your add-on within the library, in a custom dir, with a custom file. Perhaps you will have more add-ons, etc. So I recommend to people to use a unique personalized but recognizable main directory - for my site i put all my plugins under library/ in the xenfans/ directory. Since this is in relation to pages php callback, I would just make up a dir called pages/ and inside it your index.php (can also be callbackstuff.php. So you get:


    index.php starts with:

    class ismael_pages_index
    // your code here

    the class is build on the dir it's un, from underneath the library/ directory, the php file is appended without the .php
    I've coloured them so you can see what I mean. library/dir/dir/dir/file.php ends as dir_dir_dir_file

    Within the class you can put your function with a return.
