I am new to making my own forum. I have administered a few on other people's forums but never my own. My biggest fear was how easy or hard it would it be to install one. I was hoping someone had a video tutorial and could show it was as easy as installing WordPress or not. The community was beneficial, and I got some speedy replies. I got everything I needed to know and more, including a few personal messages. One of the members told me about a free version -vs.- the paid version. I know nothing about xenforo other than when I did a Google search for forums, it was the very first and second result. The third result was here (The Admin Zone). So naturally, my follow up was what was the difference between the two? You can see my thread on their site https://xenforo.com/community/threads/how-easy-is-it-to-install-xenforo.189973/ I was quickly informed that there was no free edition. OK, fair enough. Someone told me there was. I didn't know any better and planned on buying the paid copy anyways since I clearly could use the support. My account is suspended.
