Ok I spent a couple of hours her and onto another xf forum, but it stays unclear for me, could you simply help?
vb 4.2.2 user (legit) with hacks and add ons, I don't use the CMS; 9 000 members/ 160 000 posts; recently vb forum migration (server migration) with lots of prob, now it's up again but with some limitations ,
I'd like to use a cleaner, more efficient Forum soft with :
- nice display ( latest posts, threads, members, what's goin on....) on home page for example
- efficient antispam
- simple galleries system
- blogs' possibility is a bonus, but not really needed
so are these items included or can I enable 'em easily in XF, ?
I've seen lots of paid add ons even for simple little things ( who's online block or latest members online /24h) ... ???
1/ do XF need so much add ons ? in this case I will give up 'cuz that's what I want to avoid... I need a clean complete functional (with these previous req) out of the box soft
2/ did I follow wrong links or is there a free/donationware generous resources' directory?
3/ I've seen a demo here, but is there a way to be sure that import will work smoothly ( a limited time demo which can be used as test - offline)
