    There are just a lot of things I want for my websites and would love to know if I will be able to do them with Xenforo. My PHP knowledge is at beginner's level between xD

    - share log in information with other CMS. How is this done normally? Is it better to modify the CMS to pull accounts from Xenforo or the other way around? How hard is it?

    - Have each members have their own gallery they can upload images to?

    - portal page that I can fine control what to show and where to show my stuff?

    - I read there's a wiki in development. How well does it work compare to mediawiki?

    - Anyway I can receive updates about xenforo?

    You can go either way. If you go with a xenForo addon for the CMS then it will use xenForo's login system. Or you can go with a standalone CMS application. A premade CMS is easy to implement. If you want to make your own then you need a programmer.

    - Have each members have their own gallery they can upload images to?

    xenForo doesn't have a gallery feature. You can create a forum for this purpose. Images can be uploaded as post attachments. But it's not a gallery format. Here is a popular gallery program:

    - portal page that I can fine control what to show and where to show my stuff?

    Here are two portal addons for xenForo:

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xportal.8710/

    - I read there's a wiki in development. How well does it work compare to mediawiki?

    I am not familiar with mediawiki. Here is a wiki addon though:

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/8wayrun-com-xencarta-lite-wiki.7589/

    - Anyway I can receive updates about xenforo?

    I don't see a separate mailing list on this site. They might email you updates for having registered on this forum. But otherwise I suggest just checking the announcements forum periodically.
