    1. There may be a blogs add-on available in the Resource Manager which provides this functionality and provides an importer.
    2. The best way to ascertain which is better is to use both boards demos for a period of time. Also ask specifically about the functionality that you need. We may be able to confirm it is included, or not, or others may be able to recommend add-ons they have used.
    3. XenForo has a feature called Registered Feeds which can import RSS feeds into the forum as posts.
    4. I believe there is an Arabic translation in the Resource Manager.
    5. XF ships with only one style by default. There are many others free and paid in the Resource Manager.

    There is no official blog add-on.

    We do not maintain a descriptive feature list, but the best way to chose a software is to actually use it.

    Translations can be found here:
    Translations | XenForo Community

    We do not review 3rd party resources before they are released.

    XenForo supports RTL and any issues you have are fixed.

    You can request development of plugins here (licensed users only):
    Custom Service/Development Requests

    We do not have statistics on paid v. free add-ons in our listing. Browsing "Resources" should give you an idea.

    I'm not sure what you mean about wanting advice.

    Elastic Search is a paid add-on alongside your license. The Enhanced Search add-on costs $50 and adds an additional $10 to renewals. The requirement for using it is up to you, but larger boards see an improvement.

    There is no official WordPress bridge.

    Roadmaps are not released, but new features are showcased in the Have You Seen forum when nearing completion of a future version.

    If you need wordpress integration then this is a good addon. You might want to check out the big board importer as that can reduce your downtime but it is a command line only importer.

    I too wondered about this, and while dated, here is what I turned up about it:
    Xenforo mod count - 1201 (Roughly 940 of which, are FREE)
    Xenforo style count - 213 (Roughtly 120 of which, are FREE)
