    Hi,

    I'm trying to start a new forum site like many others here. I just have a couple of questions prior to purchasing your software.

    1. What License package is recommended? I'm building a new site similar to operationsports.com and virtualsportsnetwork.com

    2. Can I customize the site locally and then transport it to a hosted environment to save money on hosting while I'm developing? I know that answer is most likely, yes, but wanted to be sure since I'm mostly a .NET guy and not PHP.

    Thanks,

    Javier

    There is only a single license type with optional official add-ons.

    Yes, that's how I did it.
    Not due to hosting costs, just because it was easier to work on it locally.

    I'm running Windows 7 on my PC. Any recommendations on how to get a Dev environment setup?

    Also, are the "Official" add-ons you mention able to be purchased later on after I buy the initial license?

    I created a guide for that.
    You need to be a licensed customer to access it though.

    Yes, add-ons can be purchased at any time.

    Same with the Brand footer removal, right? I can add that later as well of course.

    So wait a sec...

    This doesn't work with your latest version of xenForo? If not, then do you recommend downloading an older version and then upgrading at some point? I'm a little confused.

    It'll work with 1.4.

    It works with any version.

    Okay, cool... the page only had up to a certain version.

    I've just updated it.
    It's a moot point though as it's mainly a guide related to xampp and localhost, rather than XF specifically.

    Yeah, I've seen these addons but I'm still new to xenForo and PHP (more where the code is located depending on what I'm trying to accomplish) and one of the sites I really like in terms of what they have for features is www.se7ensins.com
    I'd change the style a bit, but I do like the icons they use for trophies and ranking people. Pretty good model IMHO.
    I'm seeing if Audentio can help customize my site and I'm getting a logo made as well. Also, need to decide on a hosting solution that makes sense for the present and future.

    Feel free to share your opinion on how I could accomplish all of this and with whom.

    You are better off posting specific questions in the relevant customer forums now.
    Most people won't respond to pre-sales threads.

    Will do! Can you tell me the best thread to discuss this topic in so I don't pollute even more? :)

    Find the add-ons you're talking about in the RM and post in their threads.
