Duplicate Simplify add-on installation


Well-known member
On SMF, an add-on can be uploaded entirely in its zip file. The software takes care of rest [unpackaging,directory destination,etc..] No further user interaction is required especially FTP access.

Would be nice to have this on XF. Understood if it needs to be geared towards v2.0 at this point, but it is a good feature.

Whether an add-on is a simple XML upload or a not-so-simple server upload is more up to the add-on developers than XenForo.

Generally yes the process is the same.

I think this has been suggested before.

Out of interest, what do you mean by directory matching?
