    Hi there,

    I am a vB developper, known as vBDev and author of one of the most used chatbox for vB. A customer sent me the link to this place and I must say that so far I find this new forum software pretty handy, the navigation and user experience is nice and smooth.

    I therefore wanted to know if you could tell us more about your plans on third party mods ? Will you the software embed easy access point to location of the code (hooks) and the possibility to create products (perhaps in a better way ofc ?) like we do on the vB platform ?

    Any sneak peek on this side would be interesting :)

    I'd imagine they're building a easily extendable system with modern coding.

    HI there, good to have you here!

    No plans yet, since the software is still very much in its infancy, altho it's more stable than other forum scripts that I won't name. :D
    Still, please stay tuned, Kier and Mike have been, and will be, making announcements on this.

    They say the plugin system will be pretty extensible using listeners etc so you better brush up on your OOP :p

    LOL when I saw OOP I thought you made a mistake. Then I got it.

    I'll just be going for a coffee refill now...........

    OO abbreviations to know:

    OOP == Object Oriented Programming == Good
    OOM == Out Of Memory == BAD


    Actually REALLY looking forward to getting more info about the development environment too! :: rubbing hands in anticipation ::

    Lets hope that there will be a decent modification community or element for XF ;)

    Well I am sure you can count of that :)

    Lots of coders I talk with are seeking to move forward to xenforo.

    Good. And lets hope the platform for which modifications are built on will be one that won't change just that little bit with every release like vB ;)

    The modification community will be right here bro.

    I don't suppose what the site is called really matters. For it to be mods.xenforo.com it would really have to be an officially endorsed site, something that may happen in the future but right now I imagine the Dev Team have more pressing issues and concerns than to put their hand to a modification site right now ;)

    The official mod community will be right here at xenForo.com. There won't be any "we don't support modified code, you'll have to go to xenForo.org for support".
    I'm sure that other coders will open their own sites to offer mods for xF, but this will be the official modding site.

    Yep Kier confirmed that the mods community will all be within this same site. Hopefully he will build a customer repository for it also that keeps proper track of versioning etc

    That's a good thing :) Not supporting modified code and not helping coder community wans't such a good thing.
