    So folks is it true that xF doesn't have a home page?

    That a home page such as one seen at www.xenforo.com was created outside the forum framework?

    What other alternatives you folks use to make your home pages for your xF forums?

    XenForo does have a home page.

    It's http://xenforo.com

    Many different options are available: XenForo Pages, portal, WP bridge, add-ons, etc.

    Xenforo has the easiest, built-in ability to create custom pages that I have seen in any forum package.

    XenForo the site has a home page.

    As do a lot of other sites running XenForo software.

    You just need to create it yourself.

    I think you're probably alluding to a portal or something similar.

    well ... Xenforo Pages have many significant limitations ... hindering their real world use.
    - no BBCode
    - must be done in AdminCP
    - HTML
    - Stuck in the Forums Tab
    - Can't comment
    - No Likes.
    - Pages don't show up in "What's New"
    - you can subscribe to pages.

    Certainly, xenforo.com doesn't use their own Pages function.

    I realize this was a vBulletin addon ... but many of the above limitations were not a problem with

    I think you would be wrong with that statement.

    I would like to have BBCode, other than that I'm pretty satisfied with them.

    I think the pages are great, BUT it would be nice to see a bit more work put into them to add some new features.

    This is a software currently only in its 1.0.x series, so expect much more functionality and fine tuning as it evolves further.

    Garamond, I know that. I've been here since the start.

    I was simply saying that the pages system is a great tool and fully useable, however there are certain things that could be added to make it even better.
