    Hello all,

    I'm very interested in buying a license. First of all, I gotta say that I was so happy to find this; finally a forum software solution that doesn't look like it was made in 1999, supports modern needs like SEO and social media integration, seems to work very fast and intuitive, oh, and so much more.

    I do have a few questions.
    • Where can I track the development? Is it all 'hidden' in this forum? I can't find a page which tells me when any new versions are going to be released, which mods/idea's might be included, what are the plans for the future, etc.
    • Can I submit mod-wishes anyway? (Idea box?)
    • Is there a post that tells me more about all the forum features? (All I can find is the info on the front page)
    • Is there any info on how the lawsuit might affect this product?
    • And lastly, how does templating work for this forum? Can I try this in the admin demo or can anyone paste some sample code?
    Thanks in advance & keep up the great work!

    Found this in the admin. Is there any guide for templating available?

    1. There really isn't a set dev cycle, and there is no roadmap (reasoning here: http://xenforo.com/community/thread...dates-from-kier-mike.14436/page-9#post-190467).

    2. You can submit requests for graphics, styles and such in resource requests (http://xenforo.com/community/forums/resource-requests.39/) and add-on requests in Add-on Requests (http://xenforo.com/community/forums/add-on-requests.35/). You need to be licensed to post in both forums.

    3. Only place to find information on features is the 'Have you seen..?' forum or the Help Manual (http://xenforo.com/help/).

    4. Information is posted here and updated whenever new files are released (http://xenforo.com/community/threads/california-case-update.10037/).

    5. You should be able to modify templates and play around with them during the Demo. Here is a guide for XenForo Syntax posted on XenFans (http://xenfans.com/threads/guide-xenforo-template-syntax.75/).

    There are a couple of FAQ threads which you may find useful:

    And also a section on template syntax and conditionals:

    The Help manual is here:

    The Announcements forum lists all releases and some of the features in each one: http://xenforo.com/community/forums/announcements/

    Suggestions for core features can be submitted in these forums:
    There are hundreds of suggestions so it's possible some of the ones you have in mind have already been suggested.
