Resource Manager as a CMS?


Active member
I'm looking at the Xenforo Resource Manager. Can the Xenforo Resource Manager be used as a create a front-end/Home Page/Discovery Page for an internet forum...or is the Resource Manager strictly for other purposes?

I went to the pricing page...then clicked on the "Learn more..." link...then clicked on the "See an example" link.

The "See an example" link seems to send the visitor to the Xenforo "Resources" page...and what I'm seeing doesn't look like what I was expecting if the Resource Manager was used to create what I mentioned above.

Thus my verify if the Xenforo Resource Manager could be used as a CMS?

  • If no...totally ok.
  • If yes...could I be pointed to a site that uses the Resource Manager as I described above?

I was asking myself the same question.

This dialogue unveils a two-pronged narrative. On one hand, there's a theoretical alignment of the Resource Manager's functionality with CMS requirements, but on the other, practical implementation may demand more effort or an entirely different solution. Besides, integrating a CMS into XenForo isn't confined to utilizing the Resource Manager. Other routes like crafting articles as forum threads or leveraging external CMS platforms can also be explored.

The discourse around XenForo's Resource Manager as a CMS isn't densely populated, indicating it might not be a mainstream or straightforward solution for CMS integration. Considering a tailored or third-party CMS might be a more traveled and less resistant path.
