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

#1
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?)
Thanks!
Alex

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.

You can try a demo here: Admin Demo

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?
Thanks!

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.
