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?

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.

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.
