I test drive phpBB now but I lean more towards XenForo. I like that phpBB is open source and free, but... I'm a member of a forum using XenForo and it's just so damn nice. I don't have enough money right now, but I'm considering buying XenForo later on.

I also test drive XenForo Demo and I have some questions.

- When I create a "page" it looks like a forum/part of the forums though it's a page. Can I choose to display the pages in the top/menu/navtabs? How?

- Can I add an extra profile tab? If for example, I want to show the user's posts from a specific forum? How?

- How easy or difficult is it to install XenForo? I can install both WordPress and phpBB. Is the installation process similar to these? Is it included in the documentation?

- Is there a Swedish translation?

A template edit or third party add-on will allow you to do that.

That would require custom development.

It's very simple. We have documentation and support available, if required.

There may be a third party translation, you can check the resources: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/translations.31/

Could you point me to such an add-on?

Ok. I'll ask a forum that has done it.

Sounds good. :)

I found Swedish but it seems not maintained. How do I translate it myself?

I only know how to translate WordPress themes with Poedit. How do I translate XenForo? Is it easy?

Regarding topic prefixes. Can I display all the filters on the index page of the forum section?

I also wonder about the menu again. It says "Home" and "Forums". I don't want "Home" to lead anywhere else. Can "Home" become "Forums"? I don't need both "Home" and "Forums".

Thanks!

Sorry, I forgot to hit this point.. it's an option that can be disabled in the control panel by not putting anything in the Home Page URL.

Great! Now I just want to know how to customize the menu in general (relocate 'Members' and add pages). I'll see if I can find any add-on that makes it possible.

I didn't see this question answered. XenForo uses a phrase system and you can use the phrase manager to translate phrases into any language of your choice.
Oh, this seems simple. "Phrase Text" I understand is my translation, but what's the deal with "Title"? "It must be unique" it says. What exactly does "Title" and how can/should I change it?

You're going to need to create your new language and then edit the phrases in the new language. Don't edit the title, that's for calling it in the templates.
