But, seriously, these guys all welcomed me to XenForo with open arms 3 years (😲) ago and everyone, no matter how big or small their part may be, does an outstanding job behind the scenes and we'll all continue to do our bit long into the future to the best of our ability.
And, importantly, we must thank our amazing customers. Without you none of this would be possible. It has been a long 3 years in the making but your patience and understanding and of course your efforts in providing feedback and bug reports and all of you that go out of your way to help your fellow customers with additional support and advice and sharing your knowledge is truly wonderful and is much appreciated.
Have to say well done to the XF team and am sure we're all looking forward to rolling this out on our sites, if not already done so.
In the 3+ years we've been here @Chris D has always been extremely supportive and helpful. From his Media Gallery add-on then also in XF itself, he's always been efficient, polite and very helpful. A credit to XF and a testament to his character and no doubt work ethic.
Great to see this finally supported and will be moving with it too ourselves when we've ported everything over.
We look forward to many years of stable platform to build our site on. We did well with XF1 and it can only be better with 2x.
Congrats to the XF team. We moved to XF in its earliest days and have no regrets.
feature parity was the focus, but even with that sid I don't think a newsletter was ever even on the list of things to add. Remember XF has a history of being a framework, not a feature-rich all-in-one (which some call bloat but let's not get into that)
Correct, it wasn't but a quick search will show you plenty of requests for such a needed feature - as you know. https://xenforo.com/community/search/121228/?q=newsletter&o=relevance
It's a shame that something so essential, whereby we contact clientèle, our means to directly send marketing etc, was not expanded upon further really. There's been some call for it for such a long time. Bloat or not, I think you'll find that a lot of people would also have liked to have seen something further done with it than what it is at right now.
It's a genuine shame that something so essential for marketing purposes, direct contact and content pushing to members, was just left out really. A simple WYSIWYG editor would even have been great with raw HTML formatting, even just that would be better than what we have really.. (nothing much)
