I'm new here, a friend of mine has a Xenforo license and I may get to poke around with it a bit on a testing server. I've used IPB forums and VBulletin in the past, but never Xenforo.
I was wondering if anyone could point me to some of the best (up to date) widgetized portal / homepage add-ons for this forum software? From what it looks like is that it is all 3rd party add-ons.
One more question.. how does the theme structure work? Say I use a theme, can I create a child theme for customizations? Or will I have to go in and edit the live theme's css and php files?
