Is it XenForo or xenForo?

    Is the name "XenForo", or "xenForo"? I keep seeing both. The logo has a small x, the button and texts have a capital X.

    good question

    I think logo=> xenForo, everything else is XenForo:D
    Maybe they don't know it too:p *scnr* (sorry could not resist because kier didn't know what this mean^^)

    Asked and answered many times.

    It's XenForo.

    The small x in the logo is just part of the design.

    The name is XenForo. The logo is just a graphic, in the same way that both Facebook and Twitter's logos use a lowercase 'f' but the name of the companies are Facebook and Twitter.

    Oh okay. I'll stop referring to it as "xF" then. :) I always thought the lowercase x had some sort of significance. :)

    It's not quite the same though. They have everything lowercase as a style, you stylise it so the F is capital which isn't consistent with the x not being. It's more like the facebook logo reading faceBook. It's easy to see why it causes confusion (though it's not a big deal).

    True, but to be quite honest we don't care if people want to call it xenForo or XEnfOro or whatever, so long as you have x-e-n-f-o-r-o in there - I was merely responding to a question about the canonical format.

    Take a look at eBay. :p I'm sure there's plenty of companies that have capitalization we don't normally see. Typing it isn't that hard once you know what it is, but yes the logo can throw you off quite easily.

    I'm just glad it's not x-e-n-f-o-r-o ... all those dashes ... :D

    I don't think Google will find it if you use the wrong upper or lower case letters !! [​IMG]

    I know you're just trolling but it's more about brand identity than SEO.

    LOL, How do you know ??

    I change up 10 times a day !!

    Google has been case sensitive on some searches, but in this case I'm sure they will find it !!

    Maybe the staff can add a few replacement variables to stop confusion altogether:

    xenForo => XenForo
    xF => XF

    I actually use the word censor on my site for when members post the site name incorrectly :D

    My personal favorite is when people leave out the 'X' all together and replace it with "Z": Z enForo, z enForo, z enforo. :rolleyes:

    I can think of one person who does that consistently. On purpose, I suspect.

    I think I know exactly who you're talking about...

    EDIT: awe man, my example was ruined with a new word replacement :p

    I've done that while programming accidentally. :p XenForo_–Then I wonder why my IDE isn't giving me a list of classes. [​IMG]

    ZenForo has been in the word censor for quite a while.
