Questions about functions now and functions to come

    Hello,
    I run a Vb 3 forum and use it as a document library where I collect documents, categorise them, tag them and make them downloadable for my customers. Maybe a Forum program is not the optimal solution, but it works rather well. Now I am looking for my next upgrade, hesitating about whether vB4 is what I want.
    Before buying xF for evaluation I have one question I cant find answer to anywhere else.
    Is there (or will there be) a way to look at threads in different views? (linear, hybrid, threaded)
    regards / PerOla

    I believe this has been asked before but there are currently no plans to implement threaded, hybrid or other views.

    XenForo has been heavily optimised for linear view. We have no plans to implement a threaded mode for threads in XenForo.

    Any idea why xenForo don't want this? I'm getting used to a threaded view now :(

    I think Kier's response in this thread about sums up why XenForo doesn't support multiple thread views.

    On another medium-sized vB forum I work at, I've never heard of any member using the threaded view.

    I never used to like it, but I just started using it on a Lithium forum and it works well.

    If it was the default setting, I'm sure people would've used it ;)

    If it was the default setting I'd a) not buy the software and b) if I was using it I'd immediately turn it off if there was an option to do so.

    @Liam W, it may work well in some cases, but XenForo was designed for the view it has. It doesn't store enough information to implement it.
