XenForo 2

Thread starter #1
Hey,

As everyone should be able to see we upgraded our forum software to XenForo 2 today. XenForo 2 was released more than half a year ago and since now most of our critical addons have been ported over to the new software, we decided to upgrade the forums too.

The forums use the same style as before, but unfortunately there is no dark theme available for it yet, which means anyone who liked those themes has to wait a little longer. However, the blue theme is already available, so feel free to use that one if you so desire.

Unfortunately there has not been any commenting addon, and it does not appear that anyone is working on one at the moment, so waiting any longer before upgrading would not have made any sense. The comments still exist (just not visibly so) and once we find an addon, or write one ourselves (@Samuel, @ayjay ツ ;) ) comments will be gone.

Teamspeak 3 integration is not available for XenForo 2 yet but will be ported over very soon. I think this can be tolerated as the integration was not working before anyways.

The shoutbox has been replaced with a hopefully better version, it now allows all the same input as a forum post and thus should be very easy to use. It also allows doing private messages, custom rooms and all sorts of cool things, so be sure to check all of those out.

We hope you like the new forums, and generally speaking, XenForo 2 comes comes with many very cool and new features, but also may contain some minor bugs. If you do come across any or you notices something else that is missing from XenForo 1, please let us know in this thread.

Not massively important, but I enjoyed having a live feed of the recent activity on the right hand sight while on the front page alongside the shoutbox. Any chance it'll be a thing again?

me like is very good yes.

Can't wait for all the cancer without comments now. Threads going completely off topic as people quote eachother and fight like retards, that one guy who replies with 'lol.' Oh man I can't wait.

Do you know exactly when the dark themes are coming?

Please bring the old shoutbox back, this one is confusing and laggy

also remove the fucking dumb rating count or I’ll kms
Fairly sure it becomes laggy once used for a long time as there is no limit on how many messages are displayed once you load it (i.e you can have messages from an hour ago even if it's been spammed, if you haven't refreshed)

Well, negative ratings have been brought back to profiles. I thought this was removed for a reason, probably just got accidentally added back.

Edit

I don't know if this is amendable but the ratings system is much slower now that you have to hover over like to access all the ratings, just a little peeved at it
