    I'm new to this site and to the forums...

    I was reading the post about setting up Anonymous posts

    And step 2 of the installation on the thread was to use Xenforo Importer to import the .xml file.

    Why do i need an importer for it?

    Why can it not just be uploaded using normal ftp?

    FTP the files to your server.

    Click on Browse or enter the server path for the .xml file.

    Thank you, i'll give it a try.... but before i do.....

    If some of the original forum files are modified by the add on...... how can i reverse the modifications to the files in case i choose to remove an add on?

    And how will i know which files to reverse back to original state?

    Please advise, thanks.

    Add-ons should extend the core files, not modify them.

    Uninstalling an add-on should remove it cleanly, depending on the add-on and how it has been coded.

    If in doubt, take a backup of your database.

    The core server files can be re-uploaded at any time using the upgrade .zip package.

    It's the Anonymous Post add on.

    I mean the SQL database - you can back it up using phpMyAdmin.

    If you need any specific help or information relating to a particular add-on, you will need to post in the relevant thread.

    The author should be able to answer any questions you may have.
