I think its weird that no real trial of xenforo is offered. i guess for being scared of piracy wich would be understandable. But because i DO need to know if xenforo can be my software and not having to throw away a whopping 140 dollar for a guild, i have some questions.
1. Is there a chat module with sound, where sound can be disabled wich is then also stored to account or in a cookie that the user wont receive sounds anymore? With being able to create 2 channels. one public, one for certain user groups?
2. is there a cheaper media gallery plugin? 60 dollar is expensive for just a plugin. maybe something more simple around?
3. For a xenforo site with media plugin, chat plugin, contact form, portal, polls etc, how much ram and cpu will it cost for around 25 people actively browsing at the same time?
4. Is it possible to let moderators give certain ranks/user groups to people and remove those again? users groups only the administrator can set.
5. Sidebars on the portal page with poll, donation button, teamspeak status, calendar with upcoming events, upcoming birthdays.
6. Is it possible to have a style with a menu bar that floats on top of the site and stays in position when scrolling? i have not seen one yet.
7. Out of the above things, can i make them private and viewable only for a selected usergroup? And else totally invisible?
8. How much knowledge would i need to implement this? Do i need to be able to code some things or will it work with available tutorials and through admin panel? I can edit some files no problem as well.
Well that's it for now, to get the same features as i have currently.
I hope some of you kind people has the time to answer :3
