I've basically finished just converting my vB5 forum over to XenForo and I'm extremely happy with the switch!
However, there is one thing that vB5 was able to do (with their widget feature) that I can't seem to figure in XenForo, but I feel this was an important feature for my site, so I'd like to get something working.
In vB5, I basically created a bunch of pages that essentially were thread views (a list of topics that would display thread titles/authors/last post date, etc exactly like a main forum node display page). However, the threads displayed on this page were generated based off of a series of keywords.
These landing pages were dynamic, that meaning if someone created a new topic and included a keyword in their first post, the landing page would then show that new topic at the top of the list, and the rest would be shifted down. These pages would display no more than 20 threads at a time, but it was a great way to create landing pages for every category of keywords that my site concentrated on.
I'm thinking about creating these individual landing/category pages manually, and then just dropping in code to generate the forum lists. Does anyone know how something like this might be accomplished? Would I need to upgrade my site to include the enhanced search add-on? Or, might it be that what I want to do is not possible in XenForo?
Ideally, I'd like to be able to use up to maybe 15 keywords using operators and matches settings such as "x OR y OR z", "x AND y OR z", and even "-x y OR z"
Can anyone offer any help on this? Thanks in advance!
