I know that there are some addons that might provide article posting and I could keep running wordpress along with xenforo, but I would rather go without addons, becaurse I also want to invest in a branded tapatalk, and I think articles posted to any addon will not be avalible in tapatalk.
But since articles and forum posts are more or less the same, just displayed differently, I was wondering if:
1) it is possible to setup a forum that has a different styling than the rest of the forums on the site? that way the first post could be styled to look more like a article and the replies look more like comments.
2) it is possible to make selected profiles or groups be the only one who can start new threads to the article forum, but everyone else can comment/ reply to the thread?
