How to wrap the XF header and footer around custom pages?

    Take Photopost for example. Many people want an advanced style integration so that the gallery becomes part of the rest of the site. To do this it is needed to display the XF header and the XF footer, above and below Photopost content.

    Is this possible?

    Full XenForo integration?

    I think I am seeing the BroganBot effect...

    Nope. Brogan warned us he'd be slowed down now his daughter is a toddler. Sure enough he took a whole FOUR MINUTES to answer this one!

    Seriously welcome back Brogan. Don't let the teasing or admiration push you to the inhuman speeds you worked before. There was a grain of truth in the bot jokes. It'll be much better to have our lovely Brogan back among us, wise and strong - but NOT so exhaustingly quick.

    I suspect he's running the clippings browser addon. Makes any support role 1,000% easier in a forum environment.

    Yes I use that too. Vitally useful. Would make a good addon here too though.

    I just checked that out - it looks quite useful.
    Unfortunately it's for Firefox only and I use Chrome.

    So what do you use Brogan? How do you store the 100s of snips to give out as XF wisdom?
    Druidic memory? Surely not!

    A combination of memory and search.

    Brogan, I do believe Chrome also has that addon. It's called Clipper.

    It could if Photopost is allowed to use this script. After all PP is a commercial script. I have asked Luke what he can do.

    Ok that's good, let me know how I can help. I'm happy to throw in some money if there's work involved to get it working :)

    PhotoPost has tried testing Kotomi, but it doesn't work like needed.

    In order for PhotoPost to add enhanced integration, XF has to be able to pull the header and footer html into two variables which PP can use. Similar to how VB does it. I'm not a programmer...I'm repeating what has been said.

    There are many benefits to XF if third party developers were able to easily integrate XF's style into their scripts. Many admins use those other scripts and may be looking to move away from their current forum or be looking to add a forum.

    We can only hope that there will be a solution...

    If Photopost wasn't a pile of junk code wise it could integrate into xenForo.

    Will it support Xenforo Likes ?

    That looks like a vB5 demo now.
    Do you have a Xenforo demo ?
