Using addons in the demo

    Hi there,
    I'd like to have a closer look at Xenforo with the demo, but it seems like I can't download any addons, not even language packs, as I'm not a customer yet.
    Is this correct or did I miss something?
    It would obviously be really sweet to be able to test some addons, and verify that they really do what I need them to do.

    The demo doesn't allow the installation of add-ons, you wouldn't be able to upload files for the add-ons.

    Yes, you have to be a customer to download add-ons and styles.

    OK, thanks a lot. Yeah, that makes sense, about uploading.

    Does the Widget Framework addon work with 1.5? On https://xenforo.com/community/resources/bd-widget-framework.297/ it only mentions XF version 1.0-1.4 as compatible. And is it correct that this addon will allow me to add a sidebar to any page, not only the main page?

    Yes I use it on the most recent build. It works fine.

    I think you actually have to use the latest build from the authors site (I believe it's a BETA), but it works fine.

    Alright, thank you for the answers. That helps.

    I think the version posted here will work with xF1.5 but if you are using PHP7 you need the version posted on the authors site. It may have a BETA tag but it works very well. There are a few bugs but nothing that keeps it from working.

    yep, that's what the BETA was for.. I forget some folks are still stuck on old PHP versions. ;)
