    Just wonder what add on did xenforo use to design their front page?

    2. Is there a mobile skin?

    1) The front page is not powered as such by the XenForo software. (It uses some common code, but it wasn't created using the XenForo software). You can achieve the same look yourself with basic HTML but there's nothing within XenForo to help you do this.

    2) No, not right now. But improvements to make XenForo more user-friendly with mobiles is planned for version 1.2 which is under development but does not currently have an ETA.

    EDIT: What I should add, is that there is an excellent add-on called Responsive Design by Arty which for a small cost will basically make any XenForo style responsive for mobiles and tablets.

    You can see this in action by going to http://www.valvetime.net or http://xfshowcase.com with both a normal browser and a mobile.

    Hey thanks Chris!

    I keep hovering over the purchase button and second guessing myself lol

    Another question....the signature line(like for yours where you have your website)
    is there anyway to make that line more of a bigger border to separate post from Signature?

    Some xenforo site's i've visited i can't tell the difference between what is their post and what is their sig.

    Yeah this is done easily with CSS.

    Using the dev tools in my browser I have just set the top margin of the signature area to 50px and made the top border solid, red and 3px.

    Ahh perfect. I'll probably bug you or the other people here to help us figure that out once/if we buy a licence.

    Still so unsure...lol

    Just some other questiosn that popped up in my head
    1. Is there a way to make avatars largers? Like 300 X 300?
    2. This software has a very facebook/twitter like feel too it which i adore. Is there like an addon that is similar to facebook's timeline feature that shows recent posts/activities?
    3. Is there an addon for like manually sending new members a welcome Private Message?
    4. I see there is no multiquote button so you'd instead have to hit reply multiple times...is there an addon for a multiquote button?
