    I have already a xenforo license but i'm thinking of buying the resource manager.
    Can it be used like a blog so that a resource actually is an article?
    I'm more interested in this then a third party add on because it's originally from xf.
    Are there people who use this as a resource for articles?
    Are there sites who allready use the resource manager for this?

    But with future updates evrything would be lost?

    Yeah. I'm quite sure you'll have to apply all your edits.

    You are better to use a dedicated add-on for articles rather than the RM and adapting that imo.

    Edit: perhaps this may be useful to you. http://xenforo.com/community/resources/xenzine-articles.1979/

    There are not really a bunch of good options out there...

    Who of you uses the resource manager? I would like to see some examples.

    http://www.bbsmiley.com/resources/ I personally haven't fully committed to it yet though some resources have been posted within it. It's just not quite there yet for me but will still use it for various resources.

    What do you guys think?
    Keeping a wordpress blog or trying the resource manager...

    It's really down to what you feel comfortable submitting your content to and picking what is the better solution for you to house that content.

    Really surprised that no one uses this as a article database.

    I also got two other questions, that would help me in my decision to buy the manager or not.

    1. May I ask how he has set up those thumbnails?
    Isn't it restricted to use the uploader's avatar?
    Just like here or here. I really would need this feature for my project.
    2. Furthermore is it somehow possible to disable the version-stuff completly?

    Best regards!

    The version information is required for technical reasons and can't be disabled.
