Portal for XF?


Active member

Can the community suggest any good portals / page builders / article management system / frameworks for building a good frontpage and content system for XF?

A couple of my criteria:
  • Development is ongoing and continuous with steady and measured progress
  • Developer is well-respected and trusted by the community
Your thoughts and feedback are most appreciated.

You have a few options but featured threads seem to suit your listed criteria best.. I have used most all here at one time or another and find when used with Widget Framework, the FT portal solution suits my needs best. It doesnt do it all but what it does do it does extremely well and support far exceeds even my expectations which can be a lot at times..

If you want a Wordpress/Joomla/CMS-like solution with categories, tags and articles that don't look like forum threads, you probably should check out XenPorta 2. Support has also been good so far.

There are four add-ons you will want to get in order to build the ultimate system - none being a specific portal but components to build a frontend. Make sure to buy the XenForo Media Gallery, Brogan's CTA Featured Threads, Bob's Showcase, then wait a few months for the release of a really nice article management system currently in beta (not a portal, CMS, Blog). All these developers have great skills and support their products. Combined, these four will give your visitors a beautiful system.

To be fair to other add-on developers, as a staff member you should have listed all the active portals available as a possible solution to the OPs question. Promoting another staff members paid add-on over those who are not staff is a conflict of interest.
I made my recommendation on the basis that what he asked for is pretty much exactly what Pauls addon does. Simple as that. I am unaware of any other addon which matches what the OP asked for as closely.
