    I have an Internet forum (Xenforo software running on nginx, php-fpm, MariaDB, ElasticSearch) and a mail server (dovecot, postfix, and roundcube for the front-end) running on CentOS7. As I've acquired a taste for FreeBSD and also because CentOS7 is EOL by June 2024 (and CentOS8 is already EOL...

    Members and online statistics

    Not active, but (for example) XenForo Community allows the public to see who's online (only if the member allows visibility of this status). Re: the screenshots below, might people welcome things such as these?

    <https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/80756/> was for Thanks and Like. Additional reactions are possible with XenForo (or maybe with an extension) – the screenshot below is from <https://xenforo.com/community/> – however I'd caution against any predefined reaction that might worsen a...

    Solved XenForo: allow seeking three-character strings

    A question for the XenForo service administrators here. Please, can you enable support for three-character strings? I'm on my knees. Begging. Thanks (… and NB, for all readers, the question here is XenForo feature-specific, so Google is not an answer; neither is DuckDuckGo … and so on)...

    Encouraging use of the Solved prefix

    A number of topics are solved, but not marked as such. There seems to be no guideline. Please, can one be added? With a screenshot, or two, to make XenForo less ambiguous. https://forums.freebsd.org/forums/forum-rules-and-guidelines-required-reading.49/ Thanks

    Order within search results

    A post that gained a response two days ago was found on page 8 of search results, presumably because the post began in 2016. Is there no way to get results sorted by date of update?

    Inline URLs without the MEDIA aspect

    Yesterday I struggled for around ten minutes, trying, failing to get a Reddit URL inline, within a sentence, without it being interpreted as MEDIA. The quick brown fox jumped over the View: https://old.reddit.com/r/freebsd/comments/iw2b69/-/ URL within a sentence. Can this effect be avoided...
