Some questions on functionality and integration


Most of the info I've seen has been in threads, which may not be up-to-date, but does XF have standard or free add-on capabilities for:

- Google Analytics
- Advertisements (Whether you put Adsense or others here). Where can I learn about the specifics of management of ads (capping impressions, ad rotations, etc)
- Attachment manager -- I saw there's a place for Admins to review recent attachments. In my current forum, I was able to easily create a page that links to all recent attachments from posts (this is different from a media gallery, which has separate uploads. The media center I use links to existing attachments with information about where it was uploaded, current download #, etc

I'm very impressed with XF and am thinking about bringing my SMF 2.0 board over. SMF has developed much slower than I expected. Is there any update on the (un)official SMF converter?

Thanks for your help!

There is a field in the ACP where you can enter your Google Analytics code.

Ad templates are included as standard:
How and where can I insert advertisements?
There are a number of dedicated templates which are specifically for this purpose. Refer to the discussion thread in the forum for more information.

You could create a page linking to attachments, but you would have to code it yourself. Currently there is no front end attachment manager. A Resource Manager is being developed, but it won't be available as an official add-on until later.

The SMF converter status hasn't changed.
Which importers/converters are available?
As of 29 August 2011, there were the following importers available:
