Communicating with your users
Communities can not thrive unless the leadership communicates with and fosters the users.
Join us on June 24 to learn about best practices, pitfalls to avoid and to get some new ideas for engagement to help your community grow and remain healthy.
Join us live on the day with the following details:
All Things Add-on
In Episode 6, we delve deep into the ecosystem of XenForo add-ons.
Beginning with a general overview of what add-ons are, how they work and why they are great, we move on to a live demo of producing an add-on from Kier as part of the Building with XenForo 2 video series.
Community management, part 2
Episode 5 sees the continuation of the community management topic we started with Episode 4.
Beginning with a recap, we moved on to some demos of various community management features including a look at the discourager, XenForo's answer to persistent troublemakers.
Rounding off with talking points and Q&A, this is another must-see for existing or would-be community managers.
Community management, part 1
Community management. It's a huge and multi-faceted subject.
How should you recruit staff for your community? How should they deal with problematic content and users? What can be done about visitors who just want to watch the world burn?
Why should your staff behave differently from moderators on huge social networks?
Episode 4 touched upon all of these topics and more, and ran out of time before we could cover everything we wanted to, so Episode 5 will continue where we left off...
Monetization: Generating revenue from your XenForo community
Your community may already be a priceless resource, but have you considered ways in which it can directly generate revenue?
Of course, you're probably thinking about running advertizing, but did you know that XenForo has extensive tools to build a paywall around content?
In XenForo Insights Episode 3, we discussed this and other related topics with the help of community strategist Alex Blake.
Moving to XenForo: Migrating from Other Software, and Upgrading
For episode 2, we covered the topic of migration, both from another community software system (importing) and, to a lesser extent, from an earlier version of XenForo (upgrading).
This time around, we used a more informal, round-table discussion format as we delved into the intricacies of how to achieve a successful result while avoiding any of the pitfalls along the way.
First Admin Tasks and Getting off the Ground
In our first episode, Kier from XenForo discussed the very first steps a new administrator should make after the software installation is complete.
The episode concluded with a Q&A session with the live attendees, with questions including whether or not forums remain relevant in today's Internet environment.
