    Just wondering, does the xenforo splash page come with the software? If not, I'd like to suggest this be added.

    Nope. Why would a splash page be needed?

    Do you mean this page here? http://xenforo.com/
    If so then no, it doesn't.

    Besides, that page wouldn't work for any other site as it has the XenForo logo on it.
    Of course there's nothing to stop you doing a similar page for your own site.

    It's just temporary until they have the final main page ready. Of course if you like it you can use it on your main domain and replace the logo ;)

    Just view the source and copy it to your index.htm file. Then copy the linked images and save them in a directory on your server.

    I suggest you save the source cuz it's just an html page.

    I read somewhere that in some studies 25% of visitors left a site right after seeing a splash page :(

    I remember that too. Worse if it is a flash splash page :)
    I second the "why would you want it" argument .. you could easily install everything in /forums and create a simple html page I guess

    Agreed, and a flash splash page will probably hurt your SEO as well.

    Yes. These things are super annoying and can destroy your SEO. :)

    Did you know that on an iPhone or iPad, they can't even see that page? It's flash and flash is not on either device.

    Personally I don't care how beautiful they are, when I see them it's browser back button and never ever visit again.
