No. You can only install a given addon ONCE. The addon itself would need to build in some sort of simulated "instance" functionality. The closest one that I've seen that attempted to do something like this was XenReviews (NOTE: XenReviews is still in development). There is also an addon that attempts to turn the XFRM into Multi Instance, however, I have no idea if this works as designed or not (you'd need to research that on your own).
Hi, what is in these auto created threads? Do they have snippets of the article and a link back to it on Showcase? Also do these threads show up under "New Posts"? Thanks.Discussion Thread Integration: You can set (per category) whether to auto create threads for new items.

If you want them to, configure via standard XF node settings.Also do these threads show up under "New Posts"?
Showcase has the ability to COVERT Threads to Showcase Items. This is a permissions based function. If you edit one of your users groups and look at the Forum Moderator Permissions, you will see one that say's 'Showcase: Convert Thread to Showcase:' . The reason for the permission being with the Forum Moderator Permissions is so that it can be set via Individual NODE permissions on a forum by forum basis.Is it possible to move entire threads from the normal forum into Showcase?
Noted, apologies for that.
Thank you for the detailed help, it worked perfectly.Showcase has the ability to COVERT Threads to Showcase Items
Yes. This is a core part of the addon. It uses the core XF attachment system (enhanced with more functionality).Can users upload images/etc?
No, there is no core functionality that requires XFMG. The XFMG integration simple allows users that have XFMG Albums to easily integrate those image with a showcase item. Nothing more, nothing less.In other words, without Xen Media Gallery, will any functionality be missing? thanks.
Yes. Categories can be configured differently, have their own permissions, have options overrides etc. The only thing you'd want to do is use a 3rd party addon to add Navigation Tabs and point them to the 2 main categories as Showcase doesn't have anything built in to manage categories as tabs.Is it possible to use it BOTH as a Showcase (for cars for example), and also as a review system for products? Possibly via 2 different tabs or categories? Thanks.
