Thinking of purchasing Xenforo... have a few questions first!

    Hey folks,

    It's been quite a long while since I've been active in the forum scene. Thinking about starting up a new community site, and I've got a quick set of questions.

    • How "deep" is the Facebook integration? I know you can sign in using a Facebook login, but what else is there? Can Xenforo automatically share links to a user's wall? What about sending Facebook notifications?
    • Is there any sort of integration with Facebook Pages or Groups?
    • Does Xenforo support password-protected forums? (Either for the entire site, or for a specific category/forum)
    • Does Xenforo auto-update? (like WordPress)
    • Is Xenforo licensed per-domain, or per-deployment? (ie: can I do multiple installs per domain?)

    A single license allows one installation.

    Clicking on Recommend/Like will post the content to your Facebook wall.

    For the rest of your questions, the answer is no.

    Heh, I'm surprised there's still folks around from "back in the day".

    Anyways, I've got a few more questions:
    • Is Xenforo optimized for mobile browsers? (Does it come with a mobile skin?)
    • Is there app support (iPhone/Android/WP7/etc.) for browsing either generic Xenforo communities, or cookie-cutter "make-your-own-app" products?

    1) It works well in mobile browsers, but no mobile skin as of now.
    2) There are third party apps (tapatalk, forum runner) that work on all 3 platforms.

    Will this feature be added in the future?

    It has been suggested as far as I am aware.

    I can't comment on whether it will be included or not.
