It's the little things...

I've been using xenForo for less than a month but it's the little things that make me really like this product. (can't say love until 1.0 is released!)

A couple of them that come to mind:
  1. Nice clean design and good DOM structure.
  2. The appropriate use of ajax to post content/actions and update pages.
  3. The way dates/times are updated on page with the dateTime class.
Kudos to the xenForo team for taking the time to put such attention to detail.

My list could go on but I'd rather hear from you. So what are some of your favorite little things with xenForo?

I thought my wife had written this when I saw the thread title...

Anyway, my favourite features are, in no particular order:
  • Alerts
  • Ajaxification
  • Style Properties
  • SEO / HTML 5 Microdata
  • Attachment uploader
  • Image embedding and lightbox
  • The inline mod tools
  • Ease of upgrading
  • EXTRA.css
  • Profile pages
  • The news feeds

Agreed on the style system. Not only is it easy to create/update styles, but the UI to do so is solid. The installation/upgrade process is also great.

Another thing I like is the Recent Activity page. It's great to get the pulse on what is happening on the site.

Ease of upgrading.
Not having to buy third party software to achieve SEO.
Proper and usually prompt response to bugs.
No IB involvement (i.e. enthusiasm over "money money money" mentality).
It all just works!
