Although most of you are familiar with most features used by XenForo, the software this forum is ran on, many of you may not know some of the newer features and addons we've installed, and as such I will show you a simple explanation of different parts and features of the forum.

How to navigate the site on mobile easily



The area circled in red is the header, and will always bring you to the home page if you click it regardless of where on the site you are. The logo circled in purple will bring you to the front page of the forum. The part circled in green will open the following menu:



The content on it may not be exactly the same now as it it here, but it will mostly be the same.

Similarly, on other pages it may not be completely obvious where find the sidebar for what you are looking for, such as on account details:

Threadmarks:

Threadmarks is an addon installed that allows for listing and sorting posts in a thread, such as I did in the Skills & Abilities thread in the RP:


When you make a new post anywhere, you may add a threadmark to it as following:


This is how it will look on the post once it's done:


If you need to add a threadmark to someone else, simply click this button here:


Once done, it will appear in this drop-down menu in the top of the thread, where you can also find the full list:


That being said, don't go adding threadmarks for anything you want, make sure that it's important to the thread, it's easy to see who has added a threadmark and then take your rights to add threadmarks away:

Who Replied:

Who Replied is a nifty addon that allows you to see more about who has posted in a thread. To make use of it, simply go to the forum the thread you want is in and click the replies number:


It will then open the following window, letting you see how many posts each person has in the thread:


If you click the number of posts they have in the thread, you will then be redirected to a search, showing all posts by the user in this thread, isolating them from other users:

Conversations Improvements:

In this guide I will show you how to sort your Conversations.

To begin with, this is how your label folder will look, since you haven't made any:


However, once you click "Create Label" a window will open, allowing you to create labels as you want:



They will afterwards show up as follows:


When starting a new conversation, you can directly put a label on it right away:


Or you can select a conversation:


Choose "Apply Label" at the bottom of the page:


And create a new label or choose an existing one:



Then, they will show up as follows:

Bookmarks is a feature of XenForo that allows you to easily mark posts to get back to them later.

In the top right corner of a post, click this button:


It will open a window, you may leave it blank or add a label or comment:



To find your bookmarks, simply click your name in the top of the site and click "Bookmarks" in the dropdown menu:



You can also search for specific labels in that menu:

Small Things:

  • Profile posts now have nearly all the same functions as a forum post.
  • Emoji suggests autocomplete, try writing ":pepe" for example.
  • To find posts or threads by someone, simply go to their profile and click this button:
  • To view trophies of yourself or another person, click this button on your/their profile:

  • On desktop you can hover over a thread's name to get a small preview of the start of the thread:
