    Best Way to Shut Down XF Forum

    Hi All, Unfortunately the IR Forum that I had built is just kind of a Flop, and while I've tried everything I know it's Just not an enjoyable adventure any longer. I never intended this to be a money maker but truly thought that it would be a great place for people that Shoot IR would gather...

    Holy crap! The new XenForo Homepage is looking awesome.

    Well, following my day to day duties (like entering in XF.com everyday to look for improvements and updates) and i got a nice surprise. The new homepage is looking more professional than ever (or any other competition). My first thought was: "well we are all f*c*ed now, XF just got hacked"...

    Why people go with XenForo instead of IPS?

    I'm a long time IPS software user, I'm very satisfied with how it works and the choice of 3rd party apps/plugins is quite big. But yet I see a lot of forums going with XenForo, I mean even the huge ones like AVForums and many other. I fail to see what is it so special about XenForo. I mean...

    Seriously thinking about making the switch to Xenforo from vB4

    Anybody taking advantage of XF's "Custom Forum Field" options?

    Up till now custom forum fields is not something I've really taken advantage of, or even used much, so I'm kind of starting with a blank slate in regards to doing my due diligence in determining how to proceed for a new project. Does anybody have any public examples of XF forums taking...

    Have Mike and Kier checked out of Xenforo?

    Kier and Mike haven't been on the site in about three weeks. Prior to that Mike hadn't posted since March? Kier posts in a bit of a flurry every 3-6 weeks it seems? Or have I missed some news about ownership of the company? Or am I reading their profiles wrong? Brogan and ChrisD seem to be...

    Congrats on TAZ being no. 1 on google for Admin Forum

    Interesting that the top links are Forum Software, Forum SEO, XenForo and Rank/Badges. Seems admins are very interested in ranks and badges? Where's my badge? Now I want a badge. I will patiently await my badge while clicking on other SERPs to affect your rankings and bounce rate until I get...

    XenForo 2.2 and beyond

    Just like we had XenForo 2.1 and beyond thread two years back. Now its time to do the same for XenForo 2.2, as it must be around the corner so all discussions can go here. 2.1 meant to be a feature release than minor enhancement release, many expected new 1st party add-ons (even above linked...

    Xenforo Server IP Being Blocked By MS

    Just a quick heads-up. If you've registered a Outlook/Hotmail/Live address with Xenforo.com, you'll be unable to post or download anything there till they get their IP whitelisted, since you'll be automatically blocked by their system from doing so.

    Downsizing. Looking for Simple Message Board Solution.

    I run a small gaming community and have been using Xenforo for a few years now. And while it's great and we had plenty of fun using it, the usage of the forums has died completely. A while back, we started utilizing Discord as a primary way of communication and now most of the members groan and...

    Automatically running the Xenforo 2.x cron jobs via cPanel Cron Jobs?

    So on my old vBulletin site I could force the scheduled tasks to run by running a cron job from my host's cPanel account... Something like: wget -q -O /dev/null "https://www.domain.com/forum/index.php" > /dev/null 2>&1 Would this still work for XenForo 2.x? I mean it opens up a web browser...
